Project BeepBeep – ’68 Road Runner – Drum or Disc – The Decision

1968 Ply Road Runner
Project BeepBeep

Welcome back to #ProjectBeepBeep.  Bill is looking at the brakes and gets some professional assistance to help him make a crucial decision.  You know if you’ve got a lot of GO…you need a lot STOP.

It not an easy decision to alter a car’s originality, especially if it’s not 100% required for safety. So, as Bill has, you need to weight the decision carefully and get some expert opinions.

Here is Bill’s latest video.

 


 

I recall when I restored my 70 Dodge Dart – back in 1977, I wasn’t sure what those springs were that were wrapped around the drums – must guys didn’t put them back on.

More great information in this video.  Thanks for sharing it Bill.

Come up next for Project BeepBeep the conversion process gets started.

Thank for check in @ Average Guy’s Car Restoration, Mods and Racing.  You can us on Twitter @AGCarRestore.

 These pics show the location and how tight the area is where the power steering hose is located.   I have to say, that’s tight but not as bad as some cars.  I’m lucky #ProjectSportsRoof had a lot of room.

 


 

A lot of great information in this post.  Thanks Bill!!!

Introducing #ProjectBeepBeep – Code H 1968 Road Runner

I’d like you to take a look at one of my constant readers classic muscle car.

First let me say that Bill has been an a long quest to find a car to replace this car:

 

Back in the day.

It was a long search with lots of phone calls with many car owners.  Some of the stories of his search would make a great post, but for now let’s get to his new find, which if you can’t tell in video below, he’s pretty happy about this rare color code car.

His new pride and joy is a H code, 1968 Road Runner and it breaks down like this:

R – Plymouth Belvedere, Satellite (“B” body)
M – Medium price group
23 – 2 door hardtop
H – 383 1-4BBL 8 Cylinder “B” engine (High Performance)
G – St. Louis, Missouri – birth place

It is for the most part as it came from the factory.  But I’m going to let Bill cover all the details with you.  Here is his first video.

Here a few pics of Bill’s Road Runner he sent when he was looking it over.

Bill will be providing updates on the restoration and other task as he works on this beautiful Mopar (makes me miss my Dodge Dart).

So keep checking for more on #ProjectBeepBeep.

Thanks for reading
