1964 Dodge "Steel Nose" Race 426 Hemi project update. Today (11/10/2019) I spent most of the day putting the final touches on the 400+ page Platinum Level Wise Validation Report. The information contained in this report is at an unprecedented level. Hopefully, you will have a chance to meet the owner, myself , Greg Lane and the restoration team and check out this outstanding vehicle and the report.

1964 Dodge "Steel Nose" Race 426 Hemi project update. Today (11/3/2019) I spent most of the day with Greg Lane going over various sections of the Platinum Level Wise Validation Report. As of today the report is 225 pages and growing. The restoration and research team have gone to extreme measures to map out every dimple, clip, weld nut and hole on this vehicle. Below are just a few teaser images of the vehicle. I do not want to spoil the unveiling at the 2019 MCACN event in Chicago in a few weeks.

1964 Dodge "Steel Nose" Race Hemi project update. This has to be the most researched, photographed, documented and highly restored Race Hemi. We have been involved every step of the way with the owner and the restorer (Rowe's Rods and Customs). There is a Platinum Level Wise Validation Report being finalized. Current report is just slight over 200 pages and growing. There are just a few minor details that are being completed. Below are just a few teaser images of the Hemi. I do not want to spoil the unveiling at the 2019 MCACN event in Chicago next month.

Rowe's Rods and Customs in Ohio continue to raise the bar and their skill set relative to world class restorations.

Another great write up from Dave Wise at MMC Detroit about the 63 Max Wedge, 64 Steel Nose Race Hemi, and 65 Belvedere A990 we are doing!! We are super excited to be showing these for the 1st time in November at MCACN!

Race Hemi and Max wedge project update continued. This is a once in a life time experience for our team to participate in a full restoration project with cars like these from start to finish all at the same time. We have documented every square inch of these vehicles. All the way down to the way down to the individual electrical conductor leads within the connector end and the piping on the seat covers. The steel nose race Hemi may be the most highly researched documented restoration of a race Hemi in the world.

We can’t wait to unveil these 3 cars at MCACN in November!!!

The Ohio race Hemi projects are progressing along very well. We recently made another follow-up visit to check on the progress and continue the documentation process. These could be the most highly documented and researched pair of race Hemi's ever restored. The research and attention to detail is over the top. These are going to be couple of exciting vehicles to see when the finish product is unveiled to the public this year. We have been excited to have been involved with these vehicle for the past few years. Ten's of thousands of images have been taken of the before and during the restoration phase. I have no idea how many hours we have on the telephone and internet with the owners, restored and Max Wedge and Race Hemi Guru Greg Lane. Stay tuned for additional updates.
