Thought i'd share it with you. This summer returning from a trip i spotted a beautufil fuselage Dodge Monaco near my hometown, i mean that thing was mint. What are the odds of that? Pretty rare I'll tell you! The engine configuration must have been lower since it had a single exhaust.
Today i also saw a Chrysler 300 vert for sale, it looked pretty bad, had very poor body and paintjob work performed at some point. What a shame.
They had other nice rides for sale as well
I'll try to find some info on the Vert tag.
In the meanwhile, winter is ever closer, so will have some time to get around fixing my heating/AC. I do not have any control over the heater core, i cannot switch from dash vent to windshield or floor vents. I believe the vacuum lines to operate the flaps on the heater core are not connected properly. (the entire heater core and flaps/linkages were rebuilt but i assume not connected properly).
* Where can i find a vacuum line schametic for the heater core?
* Another question, how is the heat control operated, via cable or vacuum ? (i don't have auto A/C but manual).
In the winter i want to get the heater core vent control fixed, temperature control repaired, and also the A/C up and running (it's been a real pain this summer without AC).
Thanks for any help or input, neet to get this sorted
