I was thinking tubbing wouldn't be out of the question, but I like the lines of the 64 Dart too much to fit flares.

Pics, definitely. Are the headers painted, ceramic coated, or rusty? ;-) email me at tunachuckers at gmail dot you know what goes here

In reply to volvoclearinghouse:

they're painted black, typical header paint, but have been knocking around in storage for some unknown amount of time so have plenty of scrapes and scuffs where bare metal is exposed. but they've never been on an engine as far as i can tell (no evidence of bolt tightening, no distortion of flanges @ head or collector, zero soot in pipes, etc).

pix tonight.

Snuck out Sunday in between raindrops and took some pictures for inspiration here:

I'd actually forgotten how nice a car it was. Guy I got it from was a Chevy guy and wanted no part of it. The weatherstripping's dead and the carpet is wet- I'm thinking rip all the carpet out (as well as the dash), paint the floors, put in some decent buckets, remove the back seat, and polish up the exterior. I love that it had radio delete, manual brakes, manual steering...and those headlight surrounds are nearly perfect- a rare find. I bought a dented-up pair for my '63 Dart a few years back for like 40 each.

My buddy has bought '64 Darts just for the headlight surrounds. More than once. He has 3 good '64 Darts now.

Check the cowl for rot. I've seen a couple that looked like good cars but the cowl was rotted out. Can be fixed, but wasn't worth it for any of those.

If you decide you want to put weatherstripping & carpet in and want to redo the seats open the June GRM to the bottom left corner of pg. 174 and I'll see if I can help.

I think those headers are old JR brand. IIRC they had 4 digit part #'s way back when.

Cool, thanks for the pics. Do you have a box to ship them?

Alternatively, I may be heading up to MI for work sometime in the next few weeks. Wonder if they could count as a "checked bag". Wouldn't be the first time I've couriered auto parts by plane...

we just moved office buildings a couple weeks ago so i can probably rustle up a big enough box to contain them. do you have some elite flyer status that allows you free checked bags? if not, it might be cheaper to ground ship via UPS or FedEx
