Thanks Mojack and Clifcuda for your wellcome!!!
Is nice to read that you enjoy our Mopar as well as we enjoy yours!!!!

I don't know what i did wrong, but that pic links should have been thumbnails ...

The Slant Six work really fine!!! It has 0,40 overbore, full radius on the cranks journals, stock rod, fully balanced short block, ported head with 1,78 / 1,50 valves, 268/272 .430/.450 cam and the aluminum intake for the two 1bbl carbs. Enough to have a lot of fun!!!

Back in Argentina they produced the Early A body from 1962 until 1980, in fact the narrow A Body was the only one produced in Argentina by Crysler/Dodge.

Fstfish66 you are rigth it's an Inland shifter on a A233-4 gear box ... it works really fine!!!

My Inland had a lot of play (35 years of service without rebuild), but after I rebuilt it everything started working really fine, very precise shifting.

Anyway I think that a Hurst shifter will be an improve over the Inland ... but for now the Inland is OK.

I immediately thought B body too. Then I imagined the quarter panels rounded and Bingo! Duster. I had a 74 Gold Duster and wish it looked as cool as this!
