This 1971 Dodge Demon came to us with a basic request — get it up and running again. It had sat for nine years without running and the owner needed to drive it from Boise to Florida. It was our job to get it running safely again.
There were a handful of things that needed attention: carburetor needed rebuilt, fuel system cleaned, new battery, changed the windshield, in addition to an overall inspection. The biggest problem, though, was the state of the motor mounts. They were so deteriorated that the entire engine and attached systems were sitting on the left side of the engine bay.
Once we got the mounts replaced, it was a lot safer. In the end, the car purred like a kitten.
