That is sweet Nathan, you should ask him to post some pics/vid of his car on this thread. Steve.

Very glad to hear that another FI car got converted back to fuel injection! So that's one Adventurer and one 300D, now all we need is for someone to find one of the mythical and elusive FI D-500's and for the FI Fury to resurface (I believe someone on this site said one of the two Fury's was still around).

There were rumors of a EFI D-500 found upside down, resting on its roof.

Never seen images, never seen a data plate - just vapors.

Per’s Fuel Injected 300D. He used the original intake manifold and throttle bodies/air cleaners. The injectors, computer, and fuel rail are new/custom built. It has a custom built crank trigger, air temp sensor, and a lot of other one off parts. It’s a great and effective melding of original parts and modern (reliable) technology. The timing, idle speed, and fuel/air mixture were all set with a laptop computer. It runs fast and smooth. Per has a couple of issues (dirt in the fuel), so he replaced a couple of the injectors, cleaned the tank and lines, and it seems to be running better all the time.

=================================

It seems a F/I Dodge saw it's end in a wrecking yard somewhere in
NE Oregon or SE Washington. I heard of this car from a picker that
had the F/I emblems. When asked where the rest of the car was, he
was unable to say exactly where, but that he had taken them off a car
in that general area while he was on a picking trip. Before his passing,
Neil Vedder traingulated this information through others who had seen
the car. However, specifics of location or if the car survived have eluded
us.

Shoot, I'm pretty slow off the mark..............

This is Per's car, associated with Jay L. Thanks for posting the pics C-300, (and laying the bait Nate!). I hope they do a segment on this car too. It's good to see and hear someone is resurrecting this Chrysler technology. It's so rare almost no-one knows about it except us FL mob.

The car looks good. Keen to see more of it.

Steve.

I expected to see more of that perforated metal cover stuff all over that engine - great to see another running EFI car!

Same here. If I duplicate the engine, I would make it look as 'original' as possible Maybe put the brain box someplace safe, but make it seem real. He has a nice start there.

The perforated metal was only used on one show car and were not intended for the production cars. Per has, however, shown interest in making a set of shields for his car. Collecting all of the pieces (which took him a decade) was the biggest challenge. Getting it running took months of work and a specialist flown in from Europe. The shields are the easy part... just not necessary.
