Hey their KIDDO. glad you made it on board. good group of folks on here as you can see. Look around and sit around. also some funnie mofo's. just cause i have lost the boat off the back of the truck doesn't mean i would loose the car and have it run loose down the hill and run into something also would be a little worried about the car staying tied down on the trailer. You do remember this little episode right?

holy shit! that junk looks pretty solid considering it is on the humidity coast... it must be nice to be able to cool off in the shade... the old cars like it better as well! prolly why all the metal manufacting places are over here.

Where is your media blaster located? What's the going rate on a BJ (blast job)?

Blast Technologies in Pendagrass is doing the blasting. he's gonna blast, cut cancer metal out so we can pick it up and do the metal work is around 2k i believe. He's going to straighten out the frame also. it has been smacked in the front end. not to bad though. Is fixable.

My wife allows me 30 minutes a night.

ha ha. the WHOLE reason we live here is when we were looking for property she found this 9 acres with this Shop on it. Called me up and said " i think i found our new property" 2 weeks later we had signed the paperwork. sorry no shop build.

Get this, we found it and the price was right. Had the county come out and appraise it for taxes and they put the shop (54' X 40' with 11 foot ceiling) at ZERO value i said woo hoo.

Hey that's an awesome thing you're doing! I had some friends and family do sort of the same thing for me while I was deployed to Afghanistan, came in the way of a surprise 1 Ton axle swap for my Cherokee.

All the best, he's going to be stoked I'm sure.

The stock gears are 3.23's if i can find those that would be nice. If not i'm thinking around 3.73's or so.

I have a buddy here that says 4.11 would be really good to. I dont know much about gear ratios so what the hell is the better one to go with with having a 440?

a mildly built 440 is going to be able to roast the tires off that car with about any ratio rear... Personally I unless your going to be solely racing this car I would keep the 2.76's or go with 3.23's 4.11's would have you doing 3000-3500 RPMs at 65 MPH and With a 440 that would make Cruising it to go anywhere very expensive very quick. The higher Ratios (2.76 & 3.23) would help alot with fuel economy (&top end speed) while the lower ratios (3.71 & 4.11) will help Acceleration at the cost of economy and top end.

It up to you, and how much you want to pay at the pump.

Edit: messing with my engine calculator with an assumed 30" tall tire on the rear
4.11 gear at 65 MPH would be about 3000 RPM
3.71 gear at 65 MPH would be about 2700 RPM
3.23 gear at 65 MPH would be about 2400 RPM
2.76 gear at 65 MPH would be about 2000 RPM

I had 3.23's in my '65 Coronet w/440 and 727 and stepped it up to 3.91's. It really made running down the highway crappier, runs right around 3K rpms at 60 mph running a 275/60 BFG rear tire. But I was street and 1/8th mile drag racing mostly. For cruising I'd stay with 3.23 or 2.76 unless you have a desire for just acceleration/street and not running at freeway speeds much.

Seriously people, who fawking cares about fuel economy when your driving a '68 Charger with a big block?

3.55's would be a good all round ratio.
I see you forgot to mention that one, and it was a well known used ratio in the Chrysler products.

I was just throwing it out there for them to consider... Some people might have notice that gas is a little pricer than it was when this Charger came out. I was also thinking along the lines that if you plan to be cruising it at Interstate speeds it probably would be better not to have the engine cranking that many RPMs

My 30" tire estimate probably was a little much so lets play with the numbers some more lets say the rear tires were 27" Lets also say that you want to run with normal traffic at 75 MPH instead of 65.

4.11 gear would be about 3900 RPM
3.71 gear would be about 3500 RPM
3.23 gear would be about 3000 RPM
2.76 gear would be about 2600 RPM

I'm just thinking that the car would be more drivable for day to day use with the lower ratios

Example...
"Hey guys lets all pile into Bobs car and go get a malt shake! His car rides nice and quiet so we can all converse along the way!"

OR

"You want to go the Malt shop in that car?! It sounds like a monkey fucking a sandpaper football on the highway."

Choice is yours.

Unfortunately this is why my Coronet hasn't even left the shop all summer, I live about 15 miles from cruise territory so by the time I go, drive a little and come back I'm out a good half tank or more.
