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

Haha, as one that usually likes brown/browns in the older stuff, this one isn't doing it for me. Especially the bottom brown. But color aside shruggy

that color is late 70's early 80's, Green? on that car? To me would be about as appealing as the brown unless it was a real light metallic then maybe. Need more pic's and info twocents

For whatever reason, I don't mind the brown either. I'd need to tackle some interior stuff but it appears to be a nice car.

I don't hate it. Looks plain and maybe that's what you want with a Hemi car. Nobody sayin' anything about price so must be in the ballpark.

I like it, nice old school looking hot rod. The rear suspension has me scratching my head, four link/coil overs and ladder bars> Maybe it's coil overs and ladder bars.

I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with you on that one. Looks like a hack job to me.

I like the brown on brown car. A different set of wheels would make it pop. Cragers unusually work well on Brown cars.

Painted door strikers
Overspray or painted master cylinder
Whacked out fuel plumbing under the hood before the regulators. And why two regulators?
Black iron and other plumbing parts in the cooling system
Home made door panels
That hood scoop
Fuel pumps and the power cutoff inside the trunk.
Painted line lock solenoid and MC backing plate.
There's some kind of red cable or line inside the driver side wheel opening.
How much crap has that thing sucked in running it with just a screen on the carb?
The trunk "upholstery" looks stained and/or wet.

When you see obvious problems you can be sure there are plenty more. shruggy

ETA - it's tubbed too, I wonder what the suspension/underbody looks like?

That or paint the spokes bright gold on the existing wheels and polish the outside lips up. Keystones also a good choice for a car like that.

Agreed, I run Keystones on a couple of 65 Plymouths. They would look great on this car.

I like the brown one { I don't see green } it's like a root bear with a foam head,interrior color goes well with it, plenty of red ones around.
