Part 3... is he going to have a shorter roof to deal with?

I think the 60 fury trim fills the gap?

Thanks for posting
Not sure why he is doing this, I would have thought a better body would have been the go
instead of killing the dodge (even though that was also my original plan with my cars)

Anyway, Interesting to watch

I think the roof will fit, but I think the 4 door sedan ant the coupe windscreens had a difference which may show itself down the track
of his build

the guy is in Alberta Canada and I don't think there is really a choice nor is he dumping 5k on a body. Its rare to see a 2 dr hardtop even in the states that is usable.

He picked up the dodge cheap(800$ i think) and i assume the fury even cheaper. I think they fix up cars and sell them and do body shop fixes.

The guy does amazing body work. He can pound out any dent and make the metal look perfect and paint.

He did this before with a 60's Ford, came out what appears perfect.

here he cut a 4 door 69 ford in half... insanity..

wow, its getting even better.

Of course people bitching about tearing up a 4 door dart car to save a 2 dr ht fury but that was the right choice...

The donor car was an abandoned project (1960 Dodge Dart Pioneer 4 door sedan) that happened to run and drive (a little). Rust free body and frame, but incomplete - couldn't have prayed for a better donor, especially in Canada.

Biggest remaining issue seems to be a possible rear passenger quarter replacement - not only for the rust out, but also a rotten repair job near the fin at one time.

Despite the unibody construction, was there still any additional rigidity installed for hardtops over sedans?

Watching the video, it was just the door post in the middle, so no didn't appear to be any. This would be scarier with a framed car I think. the unibody helped keep it in shape I think.

I think he needs to use a come along on the tail fin(make a big adapter) and use a lot of work to fix that quarter, finding another donor in Canada would be an insane task I think.

Part 5 is up already - mating the drip rails are done and, at the end for a little bit of a cliffhanger to the next episode, it looks like he's picked up a 1960 Plymouth 4 door hardtop, possibly for the quarters as well as the passenger fin. What you see in the video thumbnail are the remains of the '60 Dodge on what's left of the '60 Plymouth lower unibody. Yeah, it sagged in half within a matter of months:

hope its not getting put away for all Winter but I know they do customer work.

I also hope its getting a full restore. He keeps going back and forth on full restore or just get it driving.

Now, after the solid and straight Dart a good Fury ht (!!!) is cut into pieces. I'm confident they will find more good restorable cars to cut in pieces and rid whole Canada of the last good restorable FL cars that survived almost 60 years to create a single bondo bomb.
BTW, that rain gutter could have been made from scratch by any decent body man. I use to like them, but now... what a bunch of ******

Have you watched all 6 installments? *Any* of the installments?

The 1960 Dodge Dart Pioneer 4-door sedan was an incomplete, abandoned project that's largely rust free in the spots needed.

Plus, that 1960 Plymouth Fury 4-door hardtop wasn't looking too awful steady, anyways - who's to say it didn't have a rotten frame?

And, had you been watching "coldwarmotors" with any regularity, you'd have known that the guy wants nothing to do with bondo in any aspect. Hell, didn't you see what kind of shape the passenger rear quarter of the 2-door hardtop was in? It's because the thing from the beltline down was rotten due to a s#!t collision repair some time in its life that was infested with bondo.

Incase you haven't checked it out, here's the video from the day he brought that 1960 Dodge home - see and judge for yourself whether or not it was worth saving as its own project, I guess:

it wasn't worth saving. If everyone wanted a bunch of 4 door sedan that needed tons of work they would be saving them. I would rather see that 2 door ht fury restored over 2 trashed sedans.

Honestly these sedans are dirt cheap, start saving them if they are worth it but they arent... plain and simple math.

I like sedans but that 60 dodge was a sorry restoration. Everyday these cars are getting scrapped as the bottom of the barrell gets scraped more and more... Save what you can

Crappy 4 door dodge sedan restoration

What was I thinking?

http://forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=38117&post... find&highlightmode=1#M534599

I am sort of enjoying watching this , but he has now destroyed both the cars of this era that I have
owned to build a car (as in this particular car) that if I ever bought it would be at the least, disappointed that I
bought a chopped up piece of rubbish.

The rear panel on my Plymouth was as bad, if not worse than the one on that 2 door

I wish he would show more working and less talking about stuff and his dog

Why did you sell the Phoenix? Your like 7 years into it?

Facts are simple, coupes are worth more than sedans, that doesn't mean sedans cant be nice rides, sportier cars are just worth more and typically rarer.
