        Ok Slanters! I believe I've posted my SL6 car here before, it's not an A-body, but it's the only classic car I own and it is a Slant-6 Mopar car. Hope you lean over folks like it! This car was built on the first day of production in 1969 off LA assy. line.

            Moparman73, great looking Dart Swinger, 70 I believe, really looks good in the blue color. You've also upped the performance value of your 225, that really makes for an interesting combination. I too increased the efficiency and maybe gained some HP along the way with mine. I added the Super Six and a 2bbl carter from a 318 with open element K&N to breathe a little easier. Mopar elect. Ign., orange box, Accel coil. Hooker Headers 3 into 1, real dual 2.25" alum. Exhaust w/ H pipe crossover. 2 glasspacks, chrome tips out the back. Auto.(904), B&M Shift Improver, and Quicksilver shifter. In the back an 8 3/4, 742 case, 3.23 gear set. It all works, I'm happy with car and engine choice.

              Moparman73, beautifully detailed, what year is the 225 you used? CFM on carb, who makes your headers? I have an Offenhauser alum. 4 bbl intake w/ a 390 CFM Holly 2 bbl Holly carb. But, with no real internal changes to my 225, it's still sitting on garage bench. I believe I'm fine where it is right now. Mildly warm. This was my daily driver for years back and forth to work. 125K on engine now. 3rd engine.
              Thanks, Al

                  Mike, hey buddy great looking Barracuda, love the color. We're the exterior and interior colors factory? I'd like to see what you did with the engine, maybe some pics. Especially if it's the SL6. Thanks, Al

                    Wow! That is one clean Scamp. Something really great to inherit, the wheels add a sporty touch. She's a keeper alright. Engine bay is really clean. 49,000 miles is barely broke in, I wish I could claim a low original mileage like that on mine, but mine is like 562,000 Again a beautiful looking car.

                    The previous owner had it painted a close B7 blue. The fender tag shows B7. The white interior is now cleaned. It was filthy. Under the hood is the org. slant 6. I haven't done anything to it yet. I'm working in trunk right now, then the underside( Rust proofing it), then the under the hood and then I'm going to do a Formula S Grille treatment. I restored my back panel to look like a Formula S. I'll post a veideo if I can figure how to do it. That's my orignal plain Jane rea tail panel I resotred and turned into a Formula S. I found a NOS Fish emblem for the rear panel. Fishy emblem cost me $100.

                    Very nice looking paint job on the slant 6. What did you do for prep before painting it Corporate Blue??

                    I agree that blue paint on there really gives it a I just purchased it new yesterday look. Mine was also the same corporate blue w/ black accessories, until I messed with it with all the bright work. Engine will be painted, race Hemi orange, I like the way it compliments the engine bay color.
