    Thanks Olivier! I did some digging on my side over lunch, and found that it was initially listed in Tocoma, WA last year; the listed price was $1,750 -- wonder how much your Oregon Classic compatriot sold it for:

    1971 Dodge Polara for Sale | ClassicCars.com | CC-955897

    The Classic Cars link does not work any more, BTW, but Google has saved it together with 20+ photos. I posted it a few in this thread:

    71 Dodge Polara Brougham coupe

    I did the same digging a few weeks back. It peaked my interest when I saw the VIN. I just can't...

    Hi Carsten, thank you for this. Seems in great shape. It almost looks like B5 blue to my eyes (rather than B7), but I don't think the Polara came in B5 (only B3 and B7)?

    Other differences: 360 engine vs. 383, Custom vs. Brougham, sedan vs. HT. Both nice!

    Hi Xavier (and sorry for the wrong name),

    The cars are not the same. Among the differences: 360 engine vs. 383, Custom vs. Brougham, sedan vs. HT. So, the Washington car is not in Germany (unless Carsten has since learned otherwise).

    Ps: Does the $6k price include shipping and taxes? If so then it’s not just cheap, it’s a steal. If not then your contact in Oregon did well.

    why?

    yes it was all included. He always sell a car with all included when he give a price.
    in fact he was aware of the global shape ofthe car and did want to sell fast.

    I like the detailed pictures he gave in his ad and the inspection he carries out. Looks like a good resource for folks buying cars in the Pacific Northwest.

    hi mates, bad news.. i am quite ashamed but i put the hurst for sale... :(

    the car was at my wife's grand father's home but he died 1 week ago so I chave figured how to keep the car and continue the restoration so i put it for sale.
    I do not make any money on it jut what it costed me ( and will for registration ).
    if it does not sale, i'll figure out... but for now I have to sale ALL I have due to no room.
