Probably a decent buy. Check for mud, fix spoiler, be the envy of many.

$39K is a fair price.

39k seems like a lot of money for a car that will need a 30k restoration

Geez - you guys are tough.

IF (big if) it's a #'s matching 70 Chally w/440, 4spd, good tag, good sheet in desirable color combo even in driver condition I'd love to get that car into my garage for less than $40k

Where else are you guys seeing cars like this for this price?

That's enough asking money to warrant a good lookover. That one pic of drivers open door area shows some poss. recent cover ups/overspray etc.

Overspray?

Look at the gas filler tube. That should tell you tons.

Where does that car need 30k? Looks like some gas and go. Why over restore and make it useless, and be upside down?

If you are looking for a driver you're right.

I couldn't stand it the way it is. The spoiler would have to go and the deckled would need to be replaced meaning the car would need to be repainted.

Enjoy rolling down the window in your "gas n go" - if that's busted, something that takes 30 seconds to replace, think of all the other things that are probably Mickey Mouse

Deal has been struck. Car was actually much nicer than what I was led to believe. The guy was an older gent, and was taking care "of a few things" before letter her girl go like new heater core and spraying the kick panels. Except for a couple of eraserhead sized bubbles at the very bottom edge of one quarter, the rest of the body is exceptional with all original sheet metal. Also all matching numbers and a clean build sheet. Correct hemi radiator (just recored) and new exhaust. He also has the original valve covers and air clearer, but not original carb. New seat covers and Just Dashes dash pad.
All in all, a very nice #2 driver with LOTS OF RED!

I also checked the position of the spoiler holes and they easily fall within where a bee stripe would be, so no repaint of the deck lid would be necessary.

You can see flaws so much easier in fluorescent lighting. Bright leds show even more.

How could someone put a spoiler on in a way off location? Maybe he liked it that way?
My second car in 1974 was a red on red 70 Challenger R/T with the white stripe on deck and a chrome luggage rack. I sort of liked the rack, but sort of did not like it either.
Mine was a 383 auto with AC.
Oh, I smashed the rear quarter and got it fixed and then later skid sideways off interstate 10 at 50 mph in the rain hit a parked truck and totaled mine out.
Had mine about 8 months.
Nice ride you got.

Cool car: I would fix a few minor things and drive it a lot. Hopefully a stock mirror will cover those other mounting holes okay.

Nice car. I like it a lot. I can't wait to see it with that white bumblebee.

Congratulations!
