New to the forum. I'm in New Zealand and have owned this 1970 Dodge Monaco 4 door hardtop for 33 years.
I have just about finished a full restoration. The car was originally purchased new by the Principality of Tonga for use by the King of Tonga. It was imported into New Zealand and sat unused in a barn for several years until I purchased it.
I have replaced all rubber ware, lenses and fittings with NOS items. Interior upholstery has been redone just doing final assembly
The one part that eludes me at the moment is a gas tank filler neck.




Welcome @KingsMonaco — look forward to more posts about your royal (not Royal!) Monaco.

@CBODY67 owns a 1970 Monaco. I have a’71.
A Crazy Thought from the Other Side of the Ditch.
If All Else Fails See if You Can Get an Exhaust Fella to Bend you Up a Neck.
When You See Some of the Work They Do to Make a Set of Extractors I Figure Nothing Can Beat Them.

@KingsMonaco -- I looked for a filler neck for my 1973 NYB a couple of years ago, and could not find any NOS or reproduction unit. I ended up saving mine. If you go used, there may be several people on the site who may be able to find one for you. I would post a "wanted" ad in the appropriate section of the site. If that does not work, then you could email Murray Park in Ohio.

PS: Here are several members who may have parts (there are others, apologies to those I missed): @70 Sport Suburban @C Body Bob @kyle340 @hemi71x

PPS: one of 19 N-code 1970 Polara convertibles is in NZ. DL27N0D177316 was, AFAIK, last for sale in Dunedin in 2015.

Its been awhile since my first post but things have progressed. Enjoying fitting lots of NOS parts.
Imported a new fuel tank. Just waiting on getting the front bumper back from the electroplated.
Great to see the progress. Does the car have a data plate / fender tag on the radiator support?
