    they are out there.
    In the worst case: Just buy one which needs to be done.
    Enough of those out there that need saving.
    Mine was for sale in Sacramento for at least 6 months

    Our Mopar DNA is similar for sure Dave.

    I currently know of 7 SFGTs in EB7 around.
    There is a very rough one which might be available but when I say very rough I mean very rough.

    It is similar Carsten that I want an original car. The one I'm thinking about is an undiscovered gem. Very similar to my 71 Polara..
    In case you haven't noticed, they find me....

    Right, but my "done" is running, driving, and enjoying, not necessarily a Critter type restoration, which I think you agree. That's the beauty of what Carsten is doing, it's preserving what was. I've spent nearly 7 years getting my vert to that point and I'm not even close. Re-importing from Europe might be worth the expense.

    This is one of the deals where condition isn't important, 'cause this car didn't follow, but obviously hunted you.
    Next time it may have blocked your garage or had followed you to work or something like that...:)...! Good deal, congratulations!

    WOWWW! Great catch! So Another one goes to Europe! Great turn of luck that you just happened to know a guy who was bringing THAT particular car over. What are the chances, right? I remember the ad for it on the Craigs List back in 2014! It was too rich for my blood, and I was on the east coast so the shipping of the car and all the parts would have been over the top. Hope you have great fun with it.

    Great find, some would say you were meant to own that car. It did follow you back to Europe. I love the Christine references that were made also

    Yes, the old seller was delusional. He would only sell the GT along with the S23 because the S23 was the only other 1970 Plymouth model that had the correct parts to fix the GT, which had rust and other issues such that a quarter needed to be replaced among other things. I told the guy that I was only interested in the red GT and that I had a parts 70 Plymouth Fury that had the correct quarter panels and that buying and shipping 2 cars from New York was not reasonable for me. He then went off on me telling me how I didn't know anything about GTs. I had a very hard time getting off the phone with him and by the end of the conversation, he said he wanted to be my friend and that I should come back and visit him. It was just a weird and strange conversation. Creepy. And his prices were ridiculous anyway. Good luck.
