1969 Dodge Monaco 500 Convertible…with a ’72 Monaco front clip - C$8,500 - Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

FB Description

Reducing my fleet, selling my Canadian market 69 Dodge Monaco 500 convertible project. the US didnt get Monaco converts, the top US Dodge C body convert was the Polara 500; Canada got Polara, Polara 500, Monaco and Monaco 500 converts. there were 347 Monaco 500 converts built. its a 383HP, ps, pb, console shift auto, pw, p trunk, p top. drum brakes. factory R6 red with white top and white interior; the interior was dyed black. Exc dash pad. the steering wheel in the pics is gone, has a black wheel now. I have new white Legendary seat covers for it ( 69 Monacos used 69 Sport Fury interiors) there is no rust in this car, - floors, cowl/firewall are solid. new trunk floor was installed and both rear 1/4s were replaced. the work was done by the late Dutch Pete of Shawnigan Lake. Pete also custom fabbed the blended installation of a 72 Monaco hidden headlight nose. ( it wasnt needed but I always thought the 72 Monaco nose was cool). this involved getting a hood from a 72 Polara/Monaco hood from National Moparts in Ontario and a 73 Monaco nose & fenders from Mopar Joe. Pete blended the 73 fender tops and front onto the 69 fenders, retaining the 69 wheel openings. Jerry of Jerry's Plastic Restoration in Duncan restored the grille. I managed to get all the NOS 72 Monaco front trim needed inc signal lens units, bezels etc. there is also NOS Monaco 500 front lower fender trim. the car is in Victoria. it runs from a gas can, the fuel tank was removed to install the new trunk floor and I never got around to undercoating the trunk before putting the tank back in. the car is ready for paint; I was getting ready to get it done but life happened...... if the 72 nose isnt to your taste i have the 69 front bumper, grille and hood so it could be switched back. you would need a pair of 69 fenders. ive got at least $20k in it. I would like to see $8500 for it, no trades please - I have too many cars.

as it says in the ad you would need 69 front fenders to put it back to a 69 front, the 69 hood, grille and bumper comes with the car if wanted.
there is no rust or rot. none.

where are you located ?
the car is on Vancouver Island so shipping could be costly...........

You're going to need to have the correct paperwork filled out, a couple of Canadian forms, and a copy of the registration and a bill of sale. I paid $350 for a broker in Canada to get that all sorted out. Then I paid a tow truck driver the same amount to drive it across the border. I picked up the car myself, rental truck and U-Haul trailer was $3200 all in.

If you're not picking up the car in person, your transport driver will have to load the car and bring it to you. Cost depends on what type of trailer you go with, open vs enclosed, and then how far you are from the pickup point. Idaho falls to Rockford IL last year was $1500 for an inoperable car on an open trailer. I paid $1300 for for an inoperable car from Seattle to the middle of southern Minnesota a year earlier.

you didnt say where in the US you are, that is going to affect the shipping cost.
from here in Victoria there is a ferry to Port Angeles Washington which is about 110 miles from Tacoma where there is a shipping depot.
you should just contact me and we can talk directly about it.
there have also been some changes in the ad since it was first posted in regard to the 72 parts.
