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 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 and not driven until I bought it out of the Estate.

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. They are also installing all new wheel cylinders and a master cylinder and flex hoses so the brakes will be work well also.

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.
