Detroit Muscle goes on the hunt for their next big build: Project Ultra Violet...a 1970 Challenger. This Mopar is in serious need of a sand blaster! The team salvages a rotted out '70 Challenger with how-to weld in a new metal roof, drip rails and A-pillars. Then, chassis guru Jeff Schwartz brings in his G-Machine chassis to convert uni-body Challenger to a full frame. We show you how to weld in a new trunk pan and fabricate a front cowl panel from scratch before the guys graft the world's first low deck, all aluminum Hemi and T56 six speed gearbox.

Then, it's step-by-step tech on how-to mini tub a muscle car rear end to create clearance for massive tires and celebrity builder Chris Ryan shows how-to lay down metallic paint and graphics on our very purple Challenger. The guys get into how to refurbish an expensive grill, insulate a uni-body plus tips on reassembling brightwork before fabbing a high flow EFI fuel system, serpentine belt drive and dual fan cooling system. Finally, the Mopar interior gets upgraded with performance seats, and a custom dash insert.

I think the reason these cars are getting astronomical prices on the TV auctions is, these cars were junk back in the day and not many of them survived because of that. The king of the streets in those days was the 396 Chevelle. I myself had a 67 GTO. The only cars I never beat in a street drag race were 396 Chevelle‘s. They would pull me by a car length at the start, and that was it. I am lucky I survived those days with drum brakes on these cars that would not go around a corner. I also had a 1968 dodge charger. Just a 383, it happened to be the worst car I ever owned. I put the sixth torque flight transmission in it, The starters sounded terrible on these cars, you could hear the heat riser valve clacking every time you stopped at a red light. If you slam the door it sounded like it was filled with metal knives and forks. They rusted out right in front of your eyes here in the Northeast. One time the steering wheel almost broke my thumb when I floored it at the start of a drag race, and something in the power steering system made the steering wheel and the tires turn all the way to the right instantly. The spokes of the steering wheel hit my thumb and I thought it was broken. I actually went to the hospital.They burned oil. Mopars made lots of noise, they burned a lot of rubber, but they never hooked up and took off like a Chevelle or a gto, or a grand sport. Although I must say, a friend of mine had a Plymouth fury 440 4 speed convertible. We raced fourtimesone night, and we were door handle to door handle the entire time in each race. I was in my GTO, and I had three passengers.He had one passenger. I sold my 1967 GTO 400/four-speed convertible with 42,000 miles on it for $400. I traded my 1968 dodge charger in on a Ford Pinto when gasoline went to $.47 a gallon which caused more panic than the china virus.. one man traded in one year-old Cadillac Eldorado‘s on VW beetles they could be bought for $1188 brand new..the gas lines at all the gas stations. They gave me $600 for the charger on trade on a used Pinto. By the way,That Pinto was the best car I ever owned. I never even had to put air in the tires. It didn’t make enough power to harm itself. I actually had to downshift to third gear on the interstate to maintain my speed on slight up hills.. it wasn’t quite as slow as my VW bugs. I bought one of them every winter for $100 to keep my other cars out of the snow/salt. but the Mopar‘s, kudos, road runners, super bees, they made a lot of noise and a lot of tire smoke, but they couldn’t get out of their own way. It was the 396 Chevelle that was king where i lived.

And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30) Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. (Psalms 51:1-4)
