I'm so happy to see it out there living it up in good company.
I figured it was going to a good home and am not disappointed.
Please use it, change it, modify it, whatever you want as far as I'm concerned.
It has been sitting far too long.

Greg, your fab skills also make me sick :wink:
Keep up the good work!

Do you notice a big difference with the T5 even behind the stock engine?
I know my other 65 170 went from night to day when it got two extra gears.

I have really been enjoying the Car lately... Went to the Bike trail on friday. 2 large mountain bikes can be fit in the trunk with some disassembly.

Also went to a drive in theater last night.
Took the girls and had a blast!
Brought an old school boom box along 'cause there is no Radio or speakers in Grüne Hölle.

Battery Is Moving to the back.

Making a Large, Low Battery Box that will fit a Group 24 Battery In the rear... hope to Get a smaller Braille or Odyssey Or equivalent $ometime.

Started some Fab Work on it today. Need some more Sheet Metal to complete the Box.

Hope to have it all burned in tomorrow... then run the Wire to the Starter.

More Battery Work Getting Done.. Hope to have everything wrapped up tomorrow.. I still need to Run the Positive Cable to the front and figure out some Grommeting and Pass throughs into the Passenger compartment. Will do a partial Interior Disassembly, Including Passenger seat and Rear seat Removal.

Today I got the Box Burned in, Painted and Some of the Cable Grommeting and Runs Figured out. Also Added the master disconnect switch at the rear.

Here is the Box fully Welded up.. Test Fitting in Chassis. Needed to Nip a Bit of the Bottom of the quarter panel to get things to fit.
Image

Image

Sticks out / Down just a bit..
Image

Image

Got it Burned in / Ground Down.. Just needs some paint.
Image

Image

Painted..

Here's some More Trash That I will be removing from the front end.

Got the Battery Box All tidy'd up, Cables run and the Master Disconnect Installed as well. Still need to wire the Alternator to the Master disconnect switch so that when the switch is turned off it actually shuts off the engine / ignition when the car is running.

Reason for doing all of this is so that I can preserve the cavernous trunk space on the early Darts... Will be able to have it all back when I use a smaller form factor battery.
Image

Image

Hold Down Hardware installed.... Skookum.
Image

Clean master switch install..
Image

Ran the cable up through the passenger compartment and one grommet through the firewall to the Starter.
Image

Image

Will fix this swiss cheese and also remove some brackets and weight later.

Thanks Dan, I figured there was some kind of Panel Passthru... I am a bit leary of having extra points of unguarded + metal terminals around some of the areas where I will be frequently wrenching.

I will probably get some ... but they are way down on the list.

Thanks for sharing.

I had the Original Z Bar Break on me Sunday... And Of course I was registered for an Autocross Tomorrow..


So Some Quick thinking and parts sleuthing in my attic.. Got it all fixed. Not Like I can go to the parts store or even scrap yard and ask for a z bar for a Chrysler A body..

Had to confirm that it worked well.. so 350 Mile trip to Ohio and back yesterday... So far so good.

Also had to get Numbered up..
Image

So Everything should be good. Need to get leaving Early tomorrow for a nice drive over the Mountains to get to the AutoX site.
This will be the first SCCA actual AutoX event for Grüne Hölle... Last Month's Carlisle thing was just a warm up.. and I found some fuel starvation Issues on tight turns with the mighty 1 Bbl Carb that I have hopefully sorted with a proper rebuild and setting the float level correctly.

Today was a good Day.

Got to take a nice 2 hour Drive over the mountains to the AutoX site.

Got 6 runs in.. Nothing broke or blew up.
Went off course first 2 laps, Then got it figured out. As the Car got hotter and I pushed harder it slowed down due to the Fuel Starvation on RH. Turns. I believe the Carter BBS 1 Bbl only has one Jet / Metering Rod and it's on the Right side of the Carb... I will look into that this week.

The Carter Designers should have really took this whole AutoX thing into account when they were designing their BBS 1 barrel carb in the 1950's :D

I think I might try putting a baffle in the float bowl and also raising the float a but more too.

The CPR Region of the SCCA did a fantastic job organizing the event and I have 160 or so Photos of the car too!..
So for the car's First official AutoX Event I am happy. It wasn't the slowest thing there and it seemed to handle well for what it is.

Results:
