Would think this would sell pretty quick. Looks solid and also has parts with it.

Never, ever argue with an IDIOT. They will drag you to their level and then beat you with their years of experience

Those are great cars. I had a red one with maroon and white interior. Should have kept it.

A friend of mine and I went to the 1999 Mopar Nationals, looked in the car corral, he saw a '69 Road Runner there, about the same shape as this Coronet, needing a complete resto, but with a running 383 4bbl that was tired. We test drove the car around the roads behind the racetrack. He ended up buying that car for...IIRC $2,500 maybe a little less. Point is, cars like this Dodge that don't run, needing ALOT of metal work, are priced where they are at these days, guess I'm just stuck in the past.

I agree to a certain point. I believe my Dad bought a 69 Road Runner in 98 for around $3000. Numbers Matching car that already had quarter skins installed, trunk pan patched and wheel tubs installed although, I wish the owner did not do the tubs. I have the car now which has been "done" since 2003; it's a nice cruiser.

From what I've seen for sale over the past 2 years, this is probably not a horrible deal but, I've seen a handful of cars over the past 3-4 years that just make a guy want to hold out. To a certain extent, I believe I'm almost done given how the market is trending. I have multiple toys and the older I get, the more humble I become and say, not all have multiple toys so; I should be thankful for what I have. Just almost not worth looking anymore; get tired of seeing the same overpriced cars listed that have been listed for 2+ years. There are still deals out there but, they seem few and far and in between. Almost feels like my time is too valuable to bother most of the time.

Yup, I know what you mean about time being valuable. If I ever end up buying another old Mopar, (probably not, but never know) I will have to have the body
AT LEAST 98% rust/damage free, for me to even think about it. I am not a body/paint guy at all, so a future car is gonna have to be almost perfect bodywise. twocents
