Saw one sell here a year ago for 23,00CDN. Body work was done but no paint, drive train installed but the rest of the car was in boxes.
In search of the eternal buzz!

yeah, don't hesitate or it will be gone quick, I wouldn't even wait until Sunday. based on the description it's a steal and you could quick flip it if you wanted.

I got it!  The PO is retiring wants to buy a camper and travel with his wife.  The purchase of the Charger included the original 318 and 904 trans, a new engine lift (used once), bumpers, mirrors, visors, new drivers window, 3 '68 radios (2 Dodge and 1 Plymouth), thermoquad carb, and a trunk load and truck bed load of extra parts.  I will be selling all extra parts.  I'm not sure if I should sell the 318 or not since its numbers match but kind of a boat anchor too.

That's a steal!  You could sell those parts and probably end up paying around $10-12 in the end!! Great Score :wow:

seriously great score!! selling the extra parts will make it more sweet. I'd keep the OG drivetrain though. while it's only a 318, it's still original and worthy of keeping it with the car IMO (usually adds a little extra value when it's time to resell it as well. not like you'll make much selling it by itself anyways).

Looks like you picked it up on Colorado Springs based on the background below. I don't recognize the car though.

Nice score, I'm jealous!

Well I guess I'll have to live vicariously through you now frazz. I've been looking for a 68 charger for awhile now and have only seen buckets of rust for too much $$$.

Looks to be a fun ride! Congrats!
