"The Fleabag" 1972 Dodge Demon 340

  • I got this car off eBay in August of 2007 for $995.00. The car was only 20 miles or so from me which was even better. It is originally a 340, 3 spd car. As you can tell by the pics it didn't have any drive train for me. It did come with the drive shaft and another 3 speed. I did get an 8-3/4 rear and a 4 speed for it and some misc. parts too. The floors are actually really nice except for 2 small holes about the size of a quarter. The trunk floor, tail panel and left quarter panel need replaced. I did find a front fender and another trunk lid. I got the fender tag and even a good build sheet from the back seat with 2 dead mice,plus I got bit up by a bunch of flea's, hence the name "The Fleabag". Most of my work I am doing is at my buddies farm were he does alot of storing peoples boats and campers and other stuff. I will try to post more pics in the future.

    Update: I brought the Fleabag home on 11/3/2013 and had started to go over the motor. It sat for a while but it is still pretty good and turns over so I was glad it wasn't seized up.

    My intentions are to first get it running so I can move it in and out of the garage,then replace the temporary rear axle with my 8-3/4 with 3.91 sure grip.Then move onto the interior. The metal work I will do at a later time.

    67 Power Wagon, it's a 360 that I stuck in it. It was a motor I bought from a friend when he used to race a dirt track car. If I remember right it was bored either 40 or 60 over and has a solid lifter cam.

    What motor did you actually get to go into it? Nice gauges work too!

    Great project!! Much better than the '72 340 Demon that I am going to fix.

    No it did not have a scoop for it. I do have a hood that has the hood scoop mounting holes and the 4 inch holes for the air to come in that I will use and I will probably redo the original hood also if I want to swap out from time to time.

    Wow you got a steal. The '72 Demon is my favorite post 1969 A-body. Did this car not have a factory duel snorkel hood scoop? I don't see the holes where one would mount. Good luck with it:)
