Texas Steer

I’m putting a 1970 Coronet R/T (440-4, non-A/C) back to dead stock. One of the things the previous owner had done was to remove the power steering. Luckily, he gave me the correct (original) steering column and the gearbox. But he didn’t

Drumdance Kid

I’m attempting my second-ever ground-up restoration, this one’s on a ’72 ’Cuda 340. One thing I’d really like to do right is the rear drum (11˝) brakes. I’ve seen guys display their rear brakes at shows with the wheel and drum off, and,

Trailer King

Hemis 1 and 3G

Horsepower Incentive

1938 was a disastrous year for Dodge truck sales. Perhaps theywould have been better if they had come equipped the wayHarvey Beers’ truck is. His Pro-Streeter packs a 440-6/ 727, and anarrowed 8-3/4˝ rear. Suspension is Troyer front and

My brother is recreating a Duster he had in high school. He has a ’72 Duster, installed a 360 w/ 727 trans. The car was originally a Slant-Six but the previ- ous owner installed a 318. He thinks the K-member was changed. My brother has an

Wire Fire

I installed a stereo amp and electric fan in my ’73 Challenger which, combined, requires more juice from the alternator. I’ve installed a 130-amp alternator but wiring has me stumped. I would like to run 4 ga. wire from alternator to
