Mopar Al had one.  His was beautiful.
I'm sure he still has some pictures up.

Look through his 30,000 posts.  Plumb crazy even.  Isn't that your favorite color Alan?

Alan's car is reallllllly nice!  :grinyes:

I have seen pictures of Al's car before. Very nice, not quite what I meant by a 100% stock original restoration, but it's close enough I guess.

Would need a lot of metal work after a proper sandblasting. Being a 318 car, not really worth it. :2cents:

 :iagree:  not to mention all the other odds and ends stuff that would need to either be restored or replaced.

Yeah, I agree.  There is a healthy metal bill there.

And the car is just a bh coded 318 car.
Nothing special by any means.

Not worth a rebuild as the car won't sell for as much as the restoration cost would be.
Oh well.  Another junked M46. Really too bad.

If we all worried about what they will sell for after the resto there would be a lot fewer Mopars on the road. Mine was even more lowly than that one being only a `72 model, 318/904 but I did it anyway. That car is pretty crusty form sitting but as far as rust I`ve seen a lot worse. Of course after blasting it might look a lot worse. I think being a `70 model with the rare M46 option it`s worth doing but I may be a little  :screwy:

rare quarter scoop option, it's hard to see in the pics of Al's car because the scoop is black and it's in the blacked out area in the lower quarter right I'm front of the rear tire, look close at the side profile pic and u will see it

You nailed that one on the head. 

I'd have this one already for sure.  But already having a terrible rust bucket, i'm not to happy to get another rust bucket.

Still talking to the fella.

Got way more pictures.  Anyone interested in seeing them? 

Maybe tonight. ......
