THIS CAR WAS A BARN FIND THIS SPRING, MY FRIEND KNEW THE MAN WHO HAD IT BUT TRIED FOR YEARS TO BUY IT, IT WAS NEVER FOR SALE, HE INTENDED TO HAVE THE BODY REFINISHED AGAIN,BUT LOST INTRES, HE FINALLY BROKE DOWN THIS SPRING AND SOLD IT TO MY FRIEND, THE CAR HAD BEEN SITTING IN A DRY BARN FOR 12 YEARS, WITH A FRESH POWERPLANT, THE BATERY WAS DEAD, GAS TANK WAS RUSTED IN BOTTOM AND LEAKING, AND HAD DRAINED THE FUEL, WE SPENT A DAY AT THE BARN, AND PUT IN A FUEL TANK IN THE CA, 5 GALONS OF FRESH PREMIUM FUEL, A FRESH BATTERY, AIRED THE TIRES AND DROVE IT HOME, APROX 10 MILES, IT DRIVES UNBELIVABLY WEL, AND SUPRISINGLY RUNS LIKE A PERFECTLY TUNED RACE CAR. THIS IS A FRESH LOW MILE POWERPLANT AND DOSENT SKIP A BEAT, VERY CRISP TIGHT RESPONSIVE AND IMPRESSIVE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION, NO SMOKING TICKING, KNOCKING, VIBRATIONS,OR BLOW BY, A BEAUTIFUL POWERPLANT !
THE MAN THAT BUILT THE CAR HAD PAID THE MOST ATTENTION TO THE ENGINE AND DRIVE TRAI, THATS WHERE THE BIG MONEY WAS SPENT ON THIS CA, HIS MISTAKE WAS LETTING THE LOCAL TECH SCHOOL PAINT AND BODY WORK THE CAR, HE WAS DISSAPOINTED WITH. THE RESULT, THE CAR THEN SAT SINCE 200, HE WASENT IMPRESED WITH THE QUALITY OF THE PAINT WORK THATS WHER HE LOST INTREST,AFTER GETTING ThE CAR HOME MY FRIEND PUT THE ORIGINAL INTERIOR BACK TOGETHER,A FRESH CARPET KIT AND GAVE IT A GOOD ONCE OVER AND HERE IT IS.A DIAMOND IN THE ROUG, IT NEDS A BODY GUY THAT CAN FRESHEN IT U, IT HAD A PRETTY DECENT SOLID BODY TO WORK WITH FROM THE START. IT IS JUST A VICTUM OF AMATURE BODY WORK
I WILL MAKE IT KNOWN THAT THE PAINTWORK IS APPROX 12 YEARS OLD AND IS IN FACT A AMATURE TECH SCHOOL PAINT JOB I WOULD CALL IT A 20 FOOTER, THIS IS WHY THE PREVIOUS OWNER PARKED IT IN THE BAR, HE WASENT HAPPY WITH THE PAINT AND BODY WORK, I HAVE SEEN WORSE DONT GET ME WRONG, JUST SO YOU KNOW ITS NO SHOW CAR, AT THIS POINT BUT SEEMS TO BE PRETTY SOLID AND DEFINATLY A CANADATE FOR A FRESH BODY RESTORATION, DOSENT APPEAR TO BE ROTTON LIKE MOST OLD MOPAR, I DO SEE SOME BUBBLES STARTING ON LOWER DRIVER REAR QUARTER PANEL, IT MAY OF HAD RUST THERE, FLOORS ARE SOLID, TRUNK IS SOLI, HOOD NEEDS ALIGHNED ITS NOT RIGHT, CHROME TRIM HAS BLEMISHES HERE AND THERE BUMPERS ARE VERY DECENT, GLASS IS ORIGINAL, FRONT WINDSHIELD IS FOGGING ON EDGES, PAINT FLAKING IN DOOR JAMBS AND TRUNK CORNERS SEE PICS,HAS SAND SCRATCHES AND WAVY PANELS,IF YOU LOOK CLOSE, THIN SPOTS IN PAIN, METAL FLAKE BLUSHES, ITS JUST AMATURE QUALITY IN ITS PRESENT STATE
THE INTERIOR ALSO NEEDS WORK, MISSING HEADLINER, DASH MISSING PAD, DASH NEEDS RESTORED, SPEEDO NOT WORKING, STEREO MISSING, GLOVE BOX DOSENT LATCH RIGHT, MISSING GLOVE BOX INSERT, PAINT RUNS ON DASH, STEERING COLUM NEEDS REFINISHED, DOOR PANELS ARE ORIGINAL AND NOT PERFECT, CARPETS ARE NEW, SEATS ARE DECENT, REAR SEAT HAS BEEN RE DYED AND IS MORE GLOSSY THAN THE FRONT SEATS, SEE PICSALSO TO NOTE, WINDSHIELD WIPERS TRY tO WORK BUT WILL NOT MAKE A FULL CYCLE, LIGHTS SEEM TO BE WORKING, I NOTICED BACKUP LIGHT IS OU, NOT SIRE IF BLOWER MOTOR WORKS, I DID NOTICE ITS MISSING ALL CHROME KNOBS, JUST HAS THE FLAT SLIDE BARS
IF THE RIGHT GUY COULD COULD SPEND A LITTLE TIME AND MONEY ON THIS ONE HE COULD END UP WITH A PRETTY DECENT CAR,WOULD MAKE A GREAT DRAG CAR WITH A SET OF LOW GEARS. IF YOUR NOT INTRESTED IN THE BODY IT STILL HAS A VERY HEALTHY FRESH HARD TO FIND 340 POWERPLANT UNDER THE HOOD THAT WOULD BE PERFECT FOR A MORE DESIRABLE BIG MONEY CAR LIKE A CHALLANGER OR OTHER CUDA I HAVE BEEN AROUND HOT RODS AND MUSCLE CARS MY ENTIRE LIFE, I HAVE SEEN IT AL, WHAT I AM TELLING YOU IS ENGINES THIS GOOD ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN, THIS ONE IS RIGHT.
