Dennis Boyd's 1978 2 door coupe

I found my NYB online while stationed overseas in the service. What really caught my eye was it was located close to my hometown in Upstate New York. The seller was getting rid of his Mopar collection, this was the last car he was selling. He kept a 1970 AAR 'Cuda.

The car is from Ohio, the body is completely original. No Upstate NY winters. It was purchased new by an elderly gentleman, then changed hands a few times before I bought it. It has the Auto Temp II, power everything, Corinthian leather, power antenna, tilt/tele steering, defroster, vanity mirror, sure-grip diff, block heater, fender skirts, P/S cooler, cornering lamps, and a few other options.

It came standard with a 400 engine, the current engine is a 400 out of a '72 Charger. It also has 440 heads. The rear diff is out of a mid-70's Fury wagon, 3.21 gears. The trans has a shift kit. This car is a beast.

The car came with a lot of NOS parts, I need a few more good parts. I plan on "restifying" the car. The plan is to restore the body and interior, then improve the driving characteristics a bit. One idea I have is to build the motor a little for towing, then put fuel injection on it. I need to figure out the Auto Temp II problems my car has. Otherwise, the car rides nice, and gets quite a few looks.

My project might take a few years, but it should be worth it. It's my little project.

I also own a 1975 New Yorker 2 door coupe.
