What are your feelings about this fully optioned conv? I was interested in the car, but price seems not realistic for the conditions.

Looks nice but two things to note:

Late model rally dash has been added
Missing the hard to find deck lid dodge emblem

Probably a car you would want to see in person.

"THERE IS RUST ON FRONT INNER FENDERS,REAR FLOOR AND THE RIGHT REAR RAIL HAD A REPAIR AS DID THE BACK OF TRUNK PAN."

No real good pictures of any of that.

Little spendy for what it all needs rust-wise IMHO.

If it was an "N-code", maybe. But "L-code" is not much better than a 318 car.

The mounting bracket on that Speed Control servo is not from an E-body.

I love challenger convertibles but this one is asking similar money as fairly nice restorations or 440 clones but isn't there quality wise. For $45K, I think the floors should have been replaced, the seat cover replaced and the door panel installed. This was probably a decent car that was repainted awhile back and then perfumed for a quick sale instead of getting the work it deserved. Not sure how the black fogged undercarriage makes it look any better. Depending on a close inspection, it could still be a good project but not at what they are asking. No under hood or trunk shot is very concerning.

Also, no fender tag or broadcast pics. Past feedback of seller are not that great....
Thank you for your thoughts

Was rear speaker an option on convertibles? If so , where did they put it?
