Hi all welcome to my winter project hopefully this will be at next years sunny Sunday event. Had it recovered today from enfield , London. In a very sorry state complete with 3 boxes of parts!!! To start with I've got to fabricate a new boot floor and give the rear springs somewhere to bolt up to all so needs footwells patched up. Got a 383 Plymouth big block at 727 gear box to fit into her 3 on the tree. Glass is all good apart from one missing rear window.IMG_3675.jpgIMG_3674.jpgIMG_3676.jpgIMG_3678.jpgIMG_3677.jpg ill add more pictures once I start forgot to mention she's a 1968 b body ( coke bottle)Plymouth 4 satellite saddan maybe the only one here due to people normally want the two door versions she is wot is classed as a full size car at 19 foot long !!!

Chrysler B and RB engines are a series of big-block V8s introduced in 1958 to replace the first-generation Hemi engines. The B and RB engines are often referred to as "wedge" engines because they use wedge-shaped combustion chambers; this differentiates them from Chrysler's 426 Hemi big block engines that are typically referred to as "Hemi" or "426 Hemi" due to their hemispherical shaped combustion chambers.

A/T you beat me to it i looked on wikipedia see above,

Omg that is ridiculous. That is the only trouble with rockauto is their shipping costs! There are companies that'll ship over for you in crates. I'm sure that'll be cheaper.
