Limited pictures. Car is pretty damn solid. Missing original engine and has a four speed in it now but originally an auto car.

Vin matches body numbers and title. Unfortunately, no fender tag found and not sure on a broadcast sheet. Car is all there, missing the 15" rallys though.

Looks to have been originally a B2 car. Overall very solid other than lower quarters. The 340 in it is carb to pan. I haven't looked at it close enough yet to know what vintage the 340 is.

Looks like it was made an RT clone at some point.

WIW ?

You must have a different set of pictures that you are looking at. Can you post those up? All I see is a very, very rough looking car that appears to be sunk into the mud. Please post up the other one.

My 70' Challenger is also an A66 340 car originally. I consider it worth the same as any other small block Challenger. Even though more rare than a Hemi Challenger it is still only a small block car.

Missing fender tag & original engine & trans hurts it a bit, and being a NJ car I would be surprised if it is really all that solid and not hiding a lot of bondo but even still it does look like a good project car for somebody. I would say cleaned up and stuck on ebay it would easily go somewhere in the 75-85-9500 range depending on what's missing or not, and what year 340 is in it. Hopefully it's one of the earlier year 340 engines with the forged crank and higher compression rather than one of the later 72-73 engines.

More pics would help but I was going to say $8500 too. There are definitely qualifiers as noted above. I am assuming the rust is reasonable and it didn't vaporize underneath sitting in the mud.

Super Bee the guy is keeping.

I have yet to look at the car. My buddy looked at it and said it is not that bad. I believe sitting in the dirt may have insulated the underside. He saw it on a lift and said the pans are good.

I'll be seeing it Saturday. Will get better pictures and report back.

My thoughts were even though the vin matches title and body numbers that lack of fender tag and broadcast sheet hurts the value quite a bit. I guess guys are buying cars without broadcast sheets and fender tags.

Sheet might be somewhere in the car. I'm going to look for it for sure....

Some A66 cars had very cool color combinations with the V9 stripe, so check that if you do find a matching broadcast sheet.

If you find any that do not match it, that would be great to know too.

When looking for the broadcast sheet, don't forget to look behind the
plastic back cover on the driver side bucket seat.
This is the single best place to find mint condition sheets on 1970 Hamtramck E bodies .

Passenger side too. Some cars have one in both sides, but they will not always match the car they are found in.

Some have also been found still connected at the perforations, so two sheets for different cars in the same seat back.

Sorry, I meant left in existence. Since it seems like just about every single Hemi car ever built seems to somehow still exist.... (I.E. fake fender tags, fake VINs & re-stamping of engine blocks & transmissions). LOL

I don't think that bad math is going to work either.

Of the ~500 Hemi Chargers built in 68 only about 20% are accounted. 70 Hemi Challengers might have faired better but lets say 50% are still out there (I have 1.5%) that would leave 144 cars left.

Let's say only 5% of A66 cars made it. I know of 2 within 40 miles of me. That would be 347 cars.

Last time I checked 347 >144

Of coarse this is all silliness because NO ONE knows how many of any of these things are left.

Judging by the front tire, that looks like it’s been parked there for quite awhile. Was it on a lift after that picture was taken? It also looks like the bottom corner of the door is missing. From rust, where it meets the fender.

Jersey car buried in the mud for years, probably drove in salt for its early years, and then covered with a tarp for who knows how long????? Do a full blown resto on a car with no tag or sheet???? I wouldn't even look at it.........Not sure if dirt is a good insulator, but it does hold moisture and condensation. Cars like this have been collectible now for 30 years, never understood how someone leaves it to rot outside.
