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.

A friend of mine doing a burnout with his Dodge Demon. Quality isn’t the greatest (cellphone camera) but it still looks and sounds cool.

This car came in after the original shop had some misforturne and couldn’t finish it. The owner who I had met a few years prior brought the car to me for completion.

The car body is an original ’33 Dodge body that originaly had a Rumble seat and the doors opened the conventional way and we changed all that . Suicide doors with a regular trunk lid with fiberglass fenders and steel running boards.

Power windows , no door handles so they are electricaly opened. Hemi engine with a 727 Mopar Transmission, MSD Ignition and Vintage Air Conditioning system. Lots of wiring and fabrication.Most of the body work is done but has a long way to go still. Click on the “gallery” to look at the entire ’33 Dodge Album
