I don’t really know these cars and was just curious if it’s supposed to have bumper guards or is that a 5mph bumper without them being it’s a 74
Glad it’s not close to me or I would be checking it out slant six and all!

There were bumper guards on '74's, but it was an option I believe . I've seen more '74's without them than with.




'74 was the first year for the 5MPH bumper. The new bumper did away with the lower valance found on the '71-'73 resulting in different fenders too.

That's nice enough that I don't even care that it's Old Man Tan. Only thing I'd rather have seen is a 3 speed on the column.

It'd make that 4-speed swap easier for sure!Late Hemi,4-speed,sleeper! Still a great buy as is for 3k.I like the '73-4 Plymouth 4-door styling better vs the 2-doors of the same vintage.

I'd drive that as is. You just don't see clean original cars like that around much anymore.

That would be a great summer driver with a set of wheels and tires.

Spray it with oil and you could probably get another 10 or 15 years out of it.

You midwest guys think you have rust - you need to come to the east coast sometime... rant

Reminds me of pictures I saw of cars in Hawaii, rust holes in the middle of hoods and roofs, doors etc.. The salt air is brutal.

East coast car... This was a '60 Pontiac I took pics of in the early 1990s, slowly returning to the earth. Of course there were zero of these actually left on the roads when this pic was taken, unless somebody brought one here from somewhere else.
