'70 Challenger in Connecticut
« on: April 18, 2014 - 02:32:48 AM »
Hey there,

I'm still well in the hunt for a 70 Challenger and  this looks like it could be cool.
It's actually a purple car from the tags, which suits me because that's my #1 color choice.

Not really looking for a car that needs work, but it's appealing knowing I could get it re-painted to my ultimate choice rather than painting a non-purple car

The auction's about to finish and I wasn't that enthusiastic about buying from eBay (I bought my 65 Riviera from Craigslist and it worked out well).
Nonetheless,  I spose I'm thinking about it in case it doesn't reach reserve.
Does anyOne know of the car  or seller? Any other thoughts?

Thanks
Andrew

Hey Andrew,
Just had another look. It is a pretty good looking car, little bit suspect on the engine bay painted out in a black body deadener, should get it checked out, i wonder how much the reserve is set at :dunno:

I pay homage to the best Mopars ever built.

 Yes, Little suspect too. The rocker panels look like they were rusted and bondo'ed  or something. The pictures avoid torque boxes and rear frame and trunk area. Always a concern.  :2cents:

 When pictures are posted of those areas in detail. Then you know a lot more about car. If you like car be prepared for metal work.
 70 cudas & challengers were not at my last 2 big Car events..    for sale or show.  Humm

Restoration gets expensive real quick...I would buy a 100% done car. Most people selling them have spent more on them then they are asking... :2cents:

Ain't that the truth..... :walkaway:  However, the enjoyment we get from owning a Mopar more than covers the loss.   :bigsmile:  :poopoke:

That's what I keep telling myself when I think about what it cost me.

Ha! Yeah I'm sure I'll be pouring more than I should into restoring my Riviera's body in a few months. But I love the car so it's all systems go !


Lookin for my first convertible 70 Challenger
