This car has been for sale for over a year. It started out at $275k and has slowly worked its way down.

Good ol' Doc Smith. Lived very close to him growing up and he lives only about 30 miles away now. Really cool guy, back in high school I went to Mid Ohio and watched him road race. He was the veterinarian of my childhood dog. Big dude with a booming voice. Was always nice to me. Wing cars and cool stuff in general sitting around as long as I can remember.

So we are to believe this 29k original mile car needed the underhood repainted? And poorly at that.

I didn’t see the vin anywhere. Real v code?

The buddy seat setup is cool.


Forever in debt to your priceless advice...

Once it's done you pretty much have to, or strip it down to the sheet metal and respray the whole thing. I've seen reports that modern automotive paints (maybe all) don't play well over common spray bomb paint like Rustoleum and Krylon.

It's even worse when someone decides to just spray the areas where there aren't things that shouldn't be be painted over. I've got a Duster like that and have had some limited luck stripping the black paint off with wax/grease remover and/or goo gone. The trunk is the same. I don't know why someone would put black spray bomb paint over a nice factory color, but they did and still do.

The black under the hood was an 80s thing. By then most Mopar muscle cars looked pretty shabby under the hood. The black paint made the Mopar motor colors stand out, and was easy to keep looking good. If you you could afford an exterior paint job with a different color, or it was a different shade of the original color, under the hood looked really bad. Pulling the drive train and having under the hood painted body color added a ton of time consuming work, and often put the price of a paint job out of reach for most guys. Back then you couldn't buy spray paint in Mopar colors, black was the best option.

I'm building a 49 Dodge truck. The truck will be painted, but right now we have not decided on a color. Before the motor went in, the firewall and inner fenders had to be painted. Semi gloss black it is, will go with any color we choose. Gene

I did the same thing on a 64 Polara. I didn't know what color I was going to paint so I spray bombed it black. That was several years ago.The car is now a running dependable car and still a mixture of original paint and about three different primer colors. Carpet and headliner still on the shelf. It may never get painted,but if it does engine compartment will get body color but right now I have too much fun driving it like it is. Age is also becoming a factor.
