When restoring this car, I tried to locate many date coded parts unless I already had them with the car. The following are some of the date coded parts/ correct number coded I can remember off hand this car retains:

-master cylinder

-power booster

-disc brake calipers

-ac/heater blower motor

-radiator 26 inch 956


-Engine(F440 hp2- which means this was a second employee shift built engine. No difference from other HP engines. Just different time of day it was built. This is not numbers matching engine to the vin, but it is a 1970 440 hp engine)

-leaf springs

-torsion bars

-has rear defrost blower(which was with car before restoration) installed which was tested before installation

-Rear SE finish panel NOS according to seller and high price I paid for it. :)

-new date coded front windshield from ECS

-I restored and used the original horns which were on the car

- I restored sway bar, lower and upper control arms which were on the car before restoration

I bought many bolt kits from RT Specialties and Partsmix which I believe Dave Wise referred me to use. I used Dave Wise's book to restore this car. The car has new original style belts and hoses with codes on them. Rallye gauges were restored by Performance Car Graphics. Glass in the car is the original with exception of the front windshield. I bought a new front windshield with the date code on it from ECS. Original style exhaust manifolds, original style new exhaust from accurate exhaust. I POR 15 all of the seat springs before installing the new seat covers and padding. I have dynamat installed under the carpet for very high quality insulation. New high quality dash pad from the company in El Paso, TX known for good quality pads. Over 90 % of the car has NEW wiring from Year One and Classic Industries. The remaining wiring is original. I have new speakers in the car but I never hooked up the stereo. I didn't have the 8track stereo so I used this other original style for show purposes. Speaker wire should be already run under the carpet. Sniff-it-out parts helped restore the cruise control unit. I bought New leather Legendary interior (around $1,000 just for the front covers if I remember correctly) and bought the highest grade new door panel they sell. The engine was built by Kim Barr racing in Garland, Texas. It has stock size heads/ valves and valvetrain. I was told it was bored 30 over. Factory rods and steel crank in the engine. The engine was balanced and dynoed. The report shows max of 513 ft lbs of torque and 419 hp. When painting the engine I painted with overspray over the exhaust manifolds to try an recreate a factory look. The engine was painted with urethane street hemi orange which is the correct color. The Rear end is a 489 casing with the 3.55 rear gears posi. The transmission was built by Plano Transmission in Plano, Texas. Many of the suspension parts were powder coated either clear coat being if it was suppose to be a cast color, satin or gloss black depending on the original coloring. If you are wanting to see a list of these suspension colors there is a list at website plymouthcuda.com. Many of the parts I used and colors I painted are based on the books supported by Dave Wise and Galen Govier. I bought new tires which I believe were the correct size/ type based on the buildsheet. I tried to restore/ create a very nice car. I know there is no perfect car, but this car is a very nice one.
