A barn find car out of Colorado, and yes, it is solid, complete and rust free. It was bought out of a rural CO barn a number of years ago and then moved to a storage building in NE until I had it shipped to me in Florida. I had to figure out what I wanted to do with it.
It is a very solid ( no rust or Bondo or body damage ) car, with faded original paint but incredibly nice stainless and chrome and an original interior that just needs a good cleaning. Last inspected and driven in 1966 but tagged in storage until 2019.
I had the car start up and purring like a kitten from an auxiliary gas can feeding the fuel pump ( did not know what was in the tank or lines ) and there was no smoking , leaking or dripping – Currently at my mechanic for new fuel lines and a cleaned out gas tank so it will run on it’s own tank. As well, new wheel cylinders and master cylinder and flex hoses are being installed so the brakes will be good to go.
It is at the point where I will store it for a few years here in Florida until I finish up with 3 other antique cars we own that are in the midst of a restoration, or just pass it on to someone who is interested in a restoration of a solid time capsule or street rodding it since it is a 2 door Coupe.
The car does have the rare side rain deflectors according to people in the Mopar community and the more I look at it, the more astonishing it is as a time capsule.
There is a clear title for the car. Otherwise, I am fine if it sits until I get around to it so lowball offers will be ignored and I want nothing in trade. We have over 30 restored vintage cars in our collection and ideally I should be selling more than the couple I have for sale but as this is a manual shift car ( well Fluid Drive but it does have a clutch pedal ) , it is in our list of cars we do not want long term and are just keeping our automatic transmission cars. This is a 74 year old used car sold as is, where is, with no warranties.
