Had no problems.
Drives regularly.

So, I can't figure out what is up with the vinyl trim pieces on the rear B pillars.
The fender tag calls out an FM3 top.
Looks like he painted the top black, probably to get rid of paint fade.
Maybe he installed the trim to make it look more correct.


Tear it apart please. I want to know what you think.

Whats the deal with the interior?  I see the seats have some covers over them. How bad is the dash, carpets, rear, etc.

I see some quarter panel rot below the penstar, how are the floor/trunk?

Nice survivor though

Any FM3 car is of value,it needs work. It always boils down to how bad you want it and how many others get a chance. Ive had an FM3 70 duster,wish i still had it.

Never could get use to owning a pink mopar. I have sold every one I have had.  When people see you in a pink car,  in the back of their minds, they are calling you a pussy.  :bigsmile:  I say pass or flip it.  I can just see you riding around in a pink car with a snake around your neck. Of course i'm a couple of decades older than you. So I see things back in the nastalgic days, as tho it were today.  318 pink and heavy. And not even a plymouth.  Now spin that 1 legger and enjoy.............for a day

316 is a scheduled production date of March 16 1970.  November 16 would have been B16.

Lots of people would love to have a pink Challenger as they are rare. I think it needs lots of work and I would say with it being a 318 that $3500 would be tops in this condition.

The driver's door and pass fender make me wonder about the frame. Door could be just bushings I s'pose. How hard was the nose hit?
I'm thinking $2000- $3000. Less if the frame needs work.

Looks to be a solid starting point. It would make a nice Pink T/A clone.  Too bad they ruined a vinyl top moulding.  The hitch may be a factory accessories item.  I would check Barry's website to be sure.

Post by: 'Cuda Hunter on February 06, 2012 - 10:08:53 AM
Well, I will be getting pictures of the inside soon.
Will also be checking frame rail measurements and making sure the collision damage is only on the skin.
More pictures and information to come.

He wants too much right now.  But I have not had a chance to help him see the current light of our economy.
He's selling  because of this economy.
His price is the same as it was back in the hay day.  Too much. 
I tried to buy this about 8 years ago.

My wife said she would drive any hot rod I gave her as long as it was pink.
So, this might be a good test for her.

So, I talked with the guy some more.
Car is in pawn down in the front range of Colorado.
He is gonna stop by and tell me the history on the car.
Then when he gets it out of pawn I will be able to take pictures of every square inch.
Including measurements to see if any collision damage is serious.
Wish I could just go and see it but this is the circumstances.

Tear it up.  The more opinions I can get the better.

Its a cool car and looks like a solid foundation but it still needs a ton of work. You need to buy it cheap to make it worth while. It needs quarters, doors , fender work, the driver side inner structure/quarter window stuff will be smashed. I'm pretty sure the frame is going to need some type of straightening smoewhere. Not sure about trunk pans, floor pans, inner fenders, cowl???? All I'm saying is don't get completely blinded by the PINK it's still a 318 car that needs a ton of work.

Looks like it took a hit in the front end too, bumper is tweaked, hood is smashed down. doors into fenders? Looks like a ton of work to me? What doesn't it need might be a shorter list? no? :dunno:

A03 is actually A93 - Challenger Deputy Package. The rear windows won't roll down.
000 - Upper door frame color, doesn't apply on e-bodies because the door panels cover the entire door.
161985 - This is the order number for the car.

At that price, I will have to pass for sure. 
I invited Jay (the fella that owns the car) on to this forum to read this post.
I hope he does.

 :iagree:  I would have to agree, maybe a tad more but not much more than $3k.  Although it can be driven around as a cool daily driver and such as it is, to fix it up would require replacement or repair of every body panel on that car.   
Title: Re: W.I.W. 70 Panther Pink Chally 318
Post by: 'Cuda Hunter on March 22, 2012 - 06:18:39 PM
I agree. 

That is why I say 7K for the car in this thread here. http://www.cuda-challenger.com/cc/index.php?topic=83803.0

All the panels are fixed on that car, mostly.

This pink car really does need work on every inch of the car.
