How many miles on the rebuild? Is it built back to factory spec or more toward hot rod? Also approximately what are you looking to get for it? Give me some more specifications/detials, the more the better. I'll keep an ear out for people in this area who may be looking for something. Any pics would help also.

Hey - while you two are "keeping ears open", if you hear of anyone that is restoring or is into 1970 Chargers, I have a SH*T load of 1970 Charger parts for sale. Fenders, doors, hoods, trunk lids, bumpers, interior parts, chrome, grills, tail lights, you name it! Some will be cheap, some won't (some stuff is RARE these days and commands a premium). Also, I may have a complete 1970 Charger R/T for sale, depending on if a currently interested buyer backs out. Car needs resto, but is complete and has no floor or frame rust (normal rear quarter rust). I also have engine parts, stock and race parts. I haven't decided if I'm getting out of cars altogether or just switching to `70 Cudas! I'm located 40 minutes north of Baltimore.

I'll do that on small parts, but the big stuff is another story! I would HATE to try to ship a 90+ lb Charger door!!!

Gus! I sold a friends Triumph motorcycle on Ebay for him and stated in the auction that "this item cannot be shipped and must be picked up!" The winning bidder drove from Va. to Pa. to pick up. You'd be surprised how well you would do with your "specialty" items.

I fowarded this thread to my brother he may be interested in a few things here. Especially the Charger stuff!

Yeah, the only way to get back money you put in is in the fun factor. Sounds bad ass, I'll definitely ask around a bit. gus, don't know anyone with a '70 charger, but if I hear anything I'll pass it along.

Also on a Mopar note. I buy cars from a dealer auto auction here in AZ. This morning they had a 1970 Challenger with less than 10K on the OD, thats right less than ten thousand miles. It was hard to get next to the car, but it did have the 440 SixPac and auto trans. Color was red with white int. If anyone is interested I can find more info on the car. It didn't meet reserve at $18K.

Somehow I just can't get the mental picture of 'Joe Dirts' machine out of my mind in this thread!

Never will I switch! (At least when dealing with the old cars). Newer cars though, I can't tell what is good. To me they ALL suck. C-bodies have a warm place in my heart. The first car I ever drove was my mom's 1972 Dodge Monaco. And in the early `90's, I lucked out and found a MINT 1971 New Yorker for, get this, $180. The old guy said the motor had a rod knocking. When I started it, it thumped once or twice and then was quiet. It turns out, it only had about half a quart of oil in it!!!! I filled it up, drove it home, and replaced the valve cover gaskets. That was one of the best cars I've ever owned!!!! I'm a musician and was in a band at the time - I could put my Marshall stack with both speaker cabinets, several guitars in cases, coolers, gear bags, suit cases, and every thing else I needed in the trunk with room to spare. With the front seat all the way back, the people in the back seat could not touch the back of the front seat with their feet! In a two door car! I could have mounted 12" woofers directly in the package shelf behind the back seat, but I didn't want to cut up the car. The A/C was almost TOO cold! The only down side was 10mpg. Like an idiot, I sold it in 1995 for $2500. I've regretted it ever since. I still see it driving around Aberdeen, Md. on nice days.

I'd say if it's a 440-6 car, the price will be more ilke $40-45k with the low miles. Can you get pics?

gus: Re brand X "...Never will I switch! (At least when dealing with the old cars). Newer cars though, I can't tell what is good. To me they ALL suck." Agreed. I will admit that the first car that was 'mine' to drive was a Chevy but she was a '72 Vega, a car even GM has trouble admitting they produced. They weren't bad little cars, the rust & oil burning aside. Since they had a bad reputation (among the nonmechanically minded sheeple) they got to be downright cheap. If I _had_ to drive a Chevy car I'd get another Vega just for the FU quality....BTW one of the only Fords I like is the Edsel (same FU reason). A buddy of mine has a late model ('94ish) Dodge truck & even it is a POS compared to older Mopars. Re C bodies: '72 Monaco & '71 New Yorker...hmmmmm My senior yr 'graduation present' was a '72 New Yorker(4dr) that was slightly ratty (rusty rear quarters,etc). Being a young punk she got 'customized' with loud stereo, safety orange painted undercarriage, 15x8 white wagon spoke wheels, Confederate flag plate, glasspacks, air horns & a plastic glow in the dark skull on the dash. Low profile she wasn't. But it sure was fun hearing the 440 sing thru the duals & the 2nd gear tire chirp under full throttle. Never had trouble merging with traffic for some reason...... She actually would seat 9 if the 6 people in back were good friends (2 couples & 2 singles). After killing a 2nd transmission & lacking the $$$$ to buy another (along with the fascist city busybodies pitching a fit about the 'junked car' in the driveway) I just gave her away....

gus: " Here are some pics of Shamus375PA's car:" She's totally sweet, & by sweet I mean cool! Nice, but a bit small... [:)] Is it just the pix or is that purple paint really that dark?
Link Posted: 6/23/2002 8:51:37 AM EDT
Those pics were taken in the shade, but it is pretty dark. I can send some pics in the sunlight if you are interested. Like I said, it is the same color as the 99 Mustangs...
