    Because it's minus 23c, factor in the windchill, making it a nippy -30c I can't go look at another recent 73 that became available. Will post pic's as soon as the snow if off it and it goes up to a balmy -7c this weekend.
    It's a yard runner, too nice to leave it sitting for another person to buy and derby or part out.
    But storage is tight for me, so it's going to be goodbye to an A body or my Harley F150.

    With those temps, be sure to check for freeze damage to the engine and cooling system.

    I thought this car was familiar to me and that I knew a previous owner. Turns out it's not the same car after all. A fellow Moparian who's not looking to buy a C told me about it as we discussing Imperials. A 4 door with some recent refurb going on, so it's drivable in the "yard only" style. Brakes are new, rad flushed, fresh anti-freeze, plugs, etc.

    Thanks it's a very decent car. We shall see how the finances go. I'd rather keep the Swinger,but I need a pickup truck more than it.

    I'd like to keep it, but room and need for cash means it will be up for sale in the spring.

    Thanks!
    It's a 340 4 speed, original B5 "White Hat Special" car from the West. I have the build sheet and matching fender tag. Bench seat, power steering and brakes. It's a clean body and chassis, but has had work on the rear quarters.
