The Charger picture was taken at the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals in Pennsylvania in July 2019, this is what the car will hopefully look like including the right hand mirror.
Very very nice engine bay!

We learned that the transmission is a 1970 B & E body transmission, and has a 19 spline converter.
This is my stepfathers 1966 Charger in 2015 before it was brought home to Connecticut. The car is WW1 White with red interior, A/C, and power windows. The car was bought new out of Santa Monica, CA on Jan 7, 1966. It was sitting in the previous owners garage and had not run since 1987, I have newspaper pictures in trunk to prove it. My stepdad bought it on August 14, 2015. The plan is to keep the red interior, paint the car silver, put a modern A/C unit in, upgrade the front brakes to disc and keep the backs original but rebuilt drums, put on Magnum 500 wheels, and maybe a tti exhaust kit on it too. (Make a clone from the 1966 Charger brochures with a bit of a twist). The build is on the forum site here under the "66-67Chargertalk" section, also ForBBodiesonly Mopar Forum, and Moparts. I hope most of you follow the build, thank you for looking.
One of my favorite pictures ! The light was just right when this pix was taken.
