Is the TA a project or full restore?

Chris, the 74 is a SCCA solo 2 E street prepared car (read project) and not a restored car, it was a 455 grocery-getter TH400 when new and now has a .030" 428 4 speed 4 wheel disc set-up. Ran well when parked due to a failed gear box. Some day.......

I used to have a 76 Plymouth Traiduster Sport with a 400 big block in it. Removable top! That would have been really cool with a Cummins in it.

Did pretty well for a "stock" car, looked like a completely stock car until you looked a little closer. Wheels are 15X8 snowflakes, duals out the back like stock only 2.5" in diameter, RAM AIR IV T cam, tri-y headers, battery in trunk, urethane bushings, KYB shocks. Couldn't run with Vipers in a straight line, Vettes and Cobras of the day weren't a problem at the stoplight Grand Prix. Gonna get it going w/ rebuild of engine, modern gear box, freshen rear end, paint and interior. I could be having a bad day, after 20 minutes in the car I would be grinnin ear to ear

Maxtorq,

The Ramcharger conversion can be done with all Mopar catalog part numbers, except for needing the P series van brake cylinder offset bracket from GM so you can run the P pump with vacuum brake booster. Same as for the 93 and older pickups when you want the P pump without the leaky oil boosted brakes.

They are a very nice conversion when done correctly.
