1970 Dodge Charger restoration , owner interview in West Branch Iowa

Dan Hyduke with his Wife seeing the car for the first time since the restoration was started years ago

This is the restoration project belonging to Dan Hyduke . It has been Dans life long dream to see his Dodge Charger back on the road as it once was when he purchased the car new. His wife used to drive it daily back and forth to work for 3 years dealing with all the little bugs that pleaged the car all time. Once the car got about ten years on it Dan realized that it could be worth some money someday and that these cars were maybe going to be rare so he started the restoration in the early ’80s and after two other shops dropped the ball he brought it to Noel Automotive to finish what others have started.

Brought in for a full restoration. This California  Challenger is rust free but not dent free, we had to install new trunk floor because it was busted up and the left rear quarter panel had plastic filler in it an inch deep in some places and was all smashed in so we installed a factory stamping quarter panel which was a breeze and required very little work to install it, plug welding the  entire panel just like the factory.
