I just acquired this one 2 days ago. A friend of mine got stuck with it and I was very happy to get it from him. I'll explain what I mean after I describe the car. Its an all original 72 Monaco and the 43k mileage is correct. It has been locked in a garage since 1996 and was garage kept most of its life. It had not seen daylight in almost 25 years until recently. It has no rust and came from the original family....sort of...more on that in a minute. The engine spins over. Rats have eaten some wiring on the motor. Everything mechanical should be pretty straightforward to bring back. Cosmetically the paint is good other than a pass lower quarter dent repair from way back that needs to be redone. The rest should be presentable with polish and wax. It is the original paint so I want to save what I can. The vinyl top cleans up but needs to be replaced. The interior is good but smells musty. It has a few stains but should clean up and it's not dried out. I think it will be a good car to get back on the road for trips with my family when we do stuff with our old car friends. I really like this car and think it has a good home with me. I plan to preserve it and enjoy the car. It will fit in with my collection of oddball cars. So... a friend of mine reluctantly got this car, he is a 69 Charger and station wagon guy. He did not want this car. His is mother is a friend of the family that owned the Monaco. He had a really nice General Lee for a while and years ago his mother had him take his General Lee to a birthday party for a little girl where she told him her dad had a Dodge like his in the garage. That girl is now an adult and her dad was now deceased. His widow wanted to reclaim the garage the Monaco has been sitting in but they didn't know who to call or what to do with the old junk car. The daughter remembering the General Lee from her youth called my friends mother to see if he wanted another one. He was extremely excited to go get another 69 Charger since he is Chargerless at the moment. They raised the garage door and instead of a 69 Charger sat a 4 door Monaco under a cover, 6 inches of dust and a crap ton of boxes. The widow was asking him to make an offer but he didn't want it and could not come up with a polite way to say that. She was throwing numbers thinking it was a money issue but he was politely declining. At some point her numbers were too good to walk away from. He dug it out loaded it, rinsed it off at the local car wash and called me to tell me I need a 72 Monaco. I like more doors, we agreed on a price and he drove 300 miles to drop it off at my door. So far all I have had time to do is make sure the engine was not locked, remove the acorns from the air cleaner, pull the carb and headlight motor to rebuild them, give it a bath and clean out the trunk. The car was only used to go to church by grandma when new, when she died the dad got it and he only used it for vacations. Luckily when he died his daughter called my buddy and not a scrapper. I could see it being scrapped, derbied or parted out for the 400.
