Saw it last night. The Mopar "expert" there decided it was missing torque boxes. Then they mini tubed it.  Shocked  Looked like a solid car to start with.

You need to have a big pair to wear your set of H wheels.

I like the show overall but Don't know how anyone could afford his prices.
They sound really high to me but then again I am poor.
I laughed at the torque box comment also.
I look at it like it is just another car show to watch when I have time.

Looks like the Carroll Street Auto car. from NH.  Then it went to Mass.  Looks nice.  I believe the VIN is WM23M9A301784 if I'm not mistaken.

I believe you are right on the same car. Guy selling it said some work was done on a TV show. I need to watch this episode.

I just watched the episode the other night...comes to Canada via dog sled. Anyway pretty much cringed the whole time they were hammering the car. It will take a bit of work to correct the improvements they made. The funny part was when Dan kept pointing at the manual brake master cylinder and saying that they won't have to worry about engine vacuum now that the have added an electric vacuum pump to help with the brakes. Shocked Roll Eyes
 
He did seem to put on some better hand controls for the owner.
 
The other weird thing was how they didn't spin around white letter tires on the front to at least match the blackwalls on the back better....the whole wheel tire combo was terrible but at least it could have been a bit better if it matched.
 
They did seem to talk up the car quite a bit...but....

I can't believe that they cut up & hacked up such a nice car for the guy after 25 or 30 years of ownership or something like that & now I hear it's up for sale.
