Not concours but for the price I would look at it right away and be ready with cash if it was any good.

My concern is the welds in the trunk, the mufflers seem very close to the gas tank and is the dash a correct 1970 challenger dash?

I've had my eye on this one myself, car has a lot going for it, 440, 4-speed, good color, slick top, no console, but then too a lot of little things that I would want to take care of, and the $$$ add up. Car has a 2 speed wiper motor (red flag?) wrong radiator, hood looks to maybe be a 72 based on the hood release, blacked out tail panel? Exhaust should have both mufflers & resonators, heater core is bypassed, dash pad script is in a weird spot? air cleaner is a '71, headers, fan/no shroud are not stock, plug wires, no horns or washer bottle? and then the car looks to be manual steering and brakes, not much fun, I would want to put p/s and p/b on it to drive I think. NOM affects value, no hood emblems, no spare, no jack, no trunk mat? But still a sharp looking car, the dana is there, and there's a set of Polyglas tires on it... probably overall a great car to drive and enjoy though, and the price seems to be in the ballpark.

Ok some small things you could do . Not the same money as a six pack.SO what  a factory U code big block car for that price  .  THAT car here in   Australia ,would be $55k to $65k as it is cheap car any day of the week .     SO un fair the prices we have 2 pay . P.S if the exchange rate was better ,she would be on a ship ..

I bet he'd take $30k cash and it'd be a great deal if that car is as solid as it looks.

Not a huge fan of that color, but at least it's a slick top (not a fan of vinyl tops), and the rear bumblebee way bueno over the V6X IMHO.

It's a rare 440/4-speed.  C'mon guys, you can through another $5k (dashpad, some emblems, right exhaust, air cleaner and radiator) at it and still come out way ahead!


Trunk looks fine.  If it really bothers you, have it redone and repainted for $1k tops.

looks like a great buy for what you are getting. sure it needs a few minor things, but those can be corrected over time and you have a kick ass driver while working on those little things.
