I like that truck the way it is. Do not change a thing.

Welp, had a coolant line go today, not too bad. Think it has been on the truck since Reagan had his first term in office, so time to swap it out.

Have you looked at how it was lowered yet? I have one of these (a Plymouth Arrow, actually) but haven't done anything with it yet.

Think the fronts are just cut springs. Rears are massive lowering blocks and I think a leaf removed

Pauls is older than those, 79-83 I think. The later ones are around but those early ones aren't surviving since they don't really have any redeeming qualities lol.

Yup, mine is an 84.

Fixed the water leak, ended up being a hose clamp needing another good turn. Next up, throwing the string bars on it and correcting the toe. Got alittle toe in, and some slop in the steering box

Excellent, all plans of dumping mine to the ground for $13 are now affirmed.

When I was a freshman there was a senior in our school who had a 360 in a 79 D50, Mopar Performance/Direct Connection sold a swap kit for it. He also had a Daytona with a 318.

Another item that needs attention: the "Rat Fink" automatic shifter haha. It's not mounted properly and flops about.
