RE: 1962 wagon on TV tonight



Love those Chrysler space rocket dashes.

 

All reality TV is fake, but still fun to watch........  I always want the owners to “buy it back” on this show ..........

I downloaded the show, it wasn't bad, the car had no motor or trans, no interior.  9 pass wagon.  I did not like the seats...tuck and roll leather.  Not BAD but not me.  They put in a 426 Hemi truck motor and tranny, I kept thinking to myself, that will never work...but it's in it.  They threw out the heater box from under the hood, they left a BIG dent in the grill on the drivers side bottom, Added a floor shifter, so pushbuttons are out.  I do like the paint.  It was sanded, primer, then painted brown, primer again, then painted red and then sanded down to look like faded, rusty old car, then cleared on top.  I really do like the paint.  I could see doing it on my car.  They also got rid of the Dash pad....hard to find, Left a bullet hole in the tail gate....it's works and looks neat.  These guys that are doing these cars are really shady IMHO, but whatever.  I don't know what's wrong with me but I see all the flaws when I see shows like this.  I think Pimp My Ride did a better job.  

 

It's great they brought it back to life, butchered it a little bit, but otherwise it would be junk forever.  So I give it a "B" as at least it will be on the road and enjoyed for a while longer.  OH it sold at the auction for $21k, and it's owner bought it as he couldn't part with it after it was done.  Pics below....

 

Before.

 

 

 

After

 

 

 

 

 

No dash pad, floor shifter

 

 

No heater box, that will be fun....wait till it rains.   

 

 

Big dent in Grill

 

 

Cool bullet hole

Aloha, I second that motion. But I think a stroked out 426 Street Wedge or Max Wedge would be a little more correct for my 63 PSF vert . The big Hemi didn't come out till 64.  Well its back to the garage, were it's Mopar or No Car for me in Hawaii . Mahalo C

I'd like to have a REAL pro rebuild my '63.  If it came back with stupid giant wheels and blacked out bumpers  and grill, and maybe a two tone paint that changed colors at the top of the fenders (Foose style) it would turn into a for real reality show as the camera's caught me beating the livin hell outa the guy !!  But ya know,, a hemi, 5speed overdrive, nice new tight steering and such,, yeah I'm on board with that !!  LOL

Yeah, I missed the broadcast, too, and spent some time watching their teasers.  Boy, I'd like to turn those guys on to the '60 Dart wagon in the salvage yard here in Austin, Texas!

What the heck, need to catch that in a repeat.  Just watched the Barracuda and Camaro episodes the other night.  And caught Monkey garage which I see has made itself over a little bit.  Was telling the wife one of these shows needs to build our ’62 Dart wagon.  Guess I wasn’t too far off.  Except I would want it to be Foose or Bitchin’ Rides, and 2 door conversion while they are at it..........
