After getting into the Army with the 82 Airborne, just in time for Vietnam, Chris Rodrigues was so impressed with the cars in the movie Bullitt that he went to the local Dodge dealership and checked off the boxes to have a special RT/SE 440 six pack Super Trak Pack Charger get assembled for him.
He took delivery the day after Christmas, 1969, and after raising some hell with it, had his sister car sit it for him, and bring it over to the Garlits speed shop, and then he went to college, used it for commuting and carpooling, and eventually put it up in the garage.
His son never got a ride in it. Born too late to ride in it before it became a permanent garage fixture, he only heard of it's many troubles with carbs, heads, etc... as Chris had a couple false starts over the 24 years of storing it and hoping to get it back on the road.
Then the son found a wonderful woman, planned a wedding, etc, and mentioned to his bride how cool it would be to get a ride from church to reception in the garage Dodge. She mentioned THAT tidbit of information to her soon to be mom in law, who told Chris he now had a deadline, a blank check, and a mission
POW, that lit a firecracker. And before you is the result, rebuilt, refreshed, and probably louder than churchbells as it broke silence for the first time in Chris's son's life to pull up to the front of the church to whisk of the newlyweds.
TTI headers, Edelbrock heads with a port n polish, Comp cams, MSD ignition, 2 1/2 inch exhaust, x pipe, and Dynomax mufflers.... must sound fantastic.
