Here we have a '68 Plymouth Custom Suburban with lovely sun faded patina and a TorqStorm supercharger just for fun!! I imported this car myself from Georgia last October and I have made some further changes and upgrades on what was already a really nice car. I have the original paperwork from the dealer, (DeKalb Chrysler Plymouth in Atlanta) the dealer order form, the dealer invoice, the build sheet and the owners and operators manuals. A lot of time and money was spent building this car in the US. I have also spent some time getting everything working on the dash including a solid state 5V regulator conversion and converting the ammeter to volts. All original gauges work along with the auxiliary gauges. The wiring has been checked and upgraded under the hood. I also spent a lot of time and around £300 on high quality LED lights that now work perfectly front and rear. I fitted a front end disc kit from The Ram Man at a cost of £2200. This kit uses all factory Chrysler parts based on 69-73 disc spindles, massive 11.75" vented rotors, bigger bearings, sliding pin calipers, 8" dual diaphragm booster, dual master cylinder and new proportioning valve. All serviceable parts are easily available. The body is rust free and has been sprayed in a matt clear coat to preserve the patina of the car. It has some nice custom pin striping and the "Betty Boost" graphic was airbrushed on the rear quarters to highlight the boost from the supercharger. The engine is a .030 over 440 (446 cu in) with a 2800 stall 727 column shifted transmission. The heads and short block were professionally built by Nalley's race engines in Georgia. Other parts are a Comp Cams hydraulic roller cam kit and timing gear, Manley pushrods, Edelbrock aluminium heads and intake, 750 Mighty Demon blow through carb, TTI ceramic coated 1 7/8" headers and 3" stainless Pypes exhaust with H pipe, twin Magnaflow stainless mufflers, full MSD ignition (Pro billet distributor, 8.8mm MSD wires, MSD coil, and BTM-6 boost referenced retard ignition box), billet TorqStorm centrifugal supercharger, high flow water pump housing and pump. The rear axle was rebuilt with 3.23 gears, posi diff and Ukon axles. The car has been lowered slightly with a couple of turns on the torsion bars and lowering blocks on the rear. It has Ridler 17 x 9 wheels and Nitto 275-45-17 tyres. All the windows are tinted, all the seats were re-padded and re-upholstered, all new carpet was installed and heat/sound insulation added. It has an Alpine sound system with speakers in all four doors and a pair of tweeters with an amp in the back under the third seat. I have receipts for all work on the engine, rear end and other parts. Total cost is well over £30k. I have owned quite a few US motors and nothing turns heads like this car and gets people waving. You can hear it coming from the next village and it'll spin up the tyres no problem.
