Project DTR - 301,996 miles why not bring it back to life?

So the blue car is hurt and I get a call from a friend with his original owner 2004 DTR Marauder with light flint, moonroof, heated seats, trunk spoiler and trunk organizer. Engine blew up. Do you want it? Yes, no, no, yes, maybe, yes. Crap now I have two projects. I serviced this car since it had 128k miles on it. Always garaged super clean. Did I need it? No. Did I want to save it of course. #963 of 980 DTR's and one of the last 100 Marauder's made. I finally got a heart for it and got it stabbed today. About 2 hours worth of work and I hope to drive it again. Mileage doesn't matter folks. Fix them don't kill them. Tired of seeing these car's parted out.

Yep and the transmissions and diffs are very simple and cheap rebuilds/repairs.


If body is good, fix the drivelive and keep on Maraudering!!!

Yes lining up 4 converter holes blind and 2 alignment tabs on the block is fun.

With all this rain we have been getting, I'm surprised you were able to even work on it yesterday

Looks great man

Arrow Project Resurrection

This will be worth following since the car isn't a beater. I'd like to know the history and what can be expected that needs to be replaced at 300k miles. Maybe a funding page...I'd slip a few dollars towards any worthy project. Raffle it off afterwards.

This car is nicer than most despite the odometer. That is the exact reason why I am putting money into it. I could have parted it out and tripled my money. But instead I get to drive a rare Marauder and have a great story when people ask. 300K miles is impressive in itself, let alone it looking like a 30K mile car. Hope to fire the car Friday................
