Having this car come up in another thread got me thinking about it. I'll do bullet points to keep it short (for me). It was a rash decision to purchase it, probably influenced by the coincidence of having seen it 20 years earlier. I have too many projects of all kinds going on right now. House, cars, business, etc. I really need to scale some things back. Other than the trip to LA and last week's swap, I really attend no shows. Weekends are just too busy. My primary project is finishing the total renovation of my current home. I can finally see light at the end of that tunnel, but any serious restoration project would need to wait for a new home, and that's probably at least two years out. The subframe was ruined on this car, but the body is surprisingly intact. If a person really knew what they were doing, you could preserve most of this cars original code 999 paint, and all of the original custom stripes. As you all probably know, I lucked into an ideal '72 Monaco parts car soon after buying it. It now rolls on the replacement frame, and there is a huge pile of parts to begin making repairs. Things I wouldn't need, like Monaco-specific trim were traded to Murray Park for nice Polara bumpers and other parts. Now I should say this... the window of sale will be short. I have a place to stash this car away until I can finish it. Once I move it there, I probably won't want to bother selling it. I haven't (ever) posted many pictures because I'd like to save the story for a magazine, not have them posted all over the Facebook and Internet. Unfortunately I think most of the people who could "explain" this car have gone to the big styling dome in the sky, but I have no doubt this car was intended for the show circuit along with the Plymouth Aspen and Chrysler Mariner. I've taken enough photos to give an idea what a buyer would be getting into. As you can see, there is some rust on the driver's floor board, but only enough to warrant a patch, and an entire floor is included. The trunk is debatable, but I kept that as well. Also all the parts-car fuel/brake/gas tank/linkages, etc. The lower quarters had some amateur patch work done, but it doesn't extend far up the panel. Rockers are good. I wire-wheeled anything questionable last year and painted any bare metal. The rest of the underbody (and inner panels) was undercoated back in the day. Sunroof, roof and Dutchman panel are good. All of the unique emblems are good, with nothing more than a few black dots on the chrome. Ask questions if you're interested. My price is $5,000 which covers the purchase, parts and labor invested to get it this far. It would be fine for transport from my home in the Detroit suburbs.
