Jan's - 1969 Dodge charger RT 440
Owner: Jan Moeskop / The Netherlands - Completed 2015
Jan bought this rare Charger RT in our shop some years ago with the plan to have us restore the car back to its former original glory. Being a correct, matching numbers and rare triple green RT this car would really stand out from the usual red and black chargers. We started with a complete disassembly of the car and the body went to the body shop as it was in bad shape it received new quarter panels and floors and we restored the doors and front fenders. The frame rails were super solid and didn't need any work. The body and all the metal parts were then acids dipped for cleaning and de-rusting and than all parts and the body received a special thermal coating dipping procedure to make sure the car wouldn't rust ever again. The engine and driveline were rebuilt and restored in our engine shop and we started to restore all the trim and moldings and re-chromed all the parts that needed it. We hunted the world for many original factory parts and started to restore the complete interior with legendary interior parts. The car was painted back into its original and rare factory FF1 light green metallic paint and afterward, we topped that of with its original green vinyl top. The car was painted inside and out, and the underside shines as deep as the topside !. Every nut and bolt. all the wiring, switches and brake and fuel lines were restored or renewed and then the car was built back together again. All in all a major project that took more than 3 years to complete. The car is highly detailed now and 100% correct to its original build sheet specs and the end result is a number 10 quality car in every sense of the word. We handed over the keys of the car with a nice reveal party to the owner and his lady in September 2015
The owner told us: I'm extremely happy with the car and amazed at the cars overall high quality. I never expected the car to turn out this good and the choice to stick with the original color was the only correct one, it is simply perfect. I enjoyed the complete period of the build with you guys and never once did i had doubts about your high-quality standards. You guys must be the best restoration shop in the business. Thanks, PTTM and crew, I'm extremely happy with this car and will enjoy it for sure!
