    Hi Guys
    Just joined the forum as I have recently picked up a 65 Monaco - picked her up from 2nd owner who did an exterior restoration up in the high desert

    here she is as I picked her up - fixing a few minor gremlins at the moment but all in all very happy

    Your car is a beauty. What's the story behind your finding the car? What's under the hood? Interior/engine pics?

    thanks for the welcome guys

    it was a craigslist find - I used to own a 66 plymouth, among others, and always keep my eyes open - i was needing a new driver and I really dont like car payments, so the wife gave me the green light

    383/727 with buckets and center console - the interior and driveline are clean, but not restored - Ill be focusing on some mild performance upgrades under the hood but keeping it a driver

    ill be starting a thread under the 'slab side'category I guess and will post some current pics of interior and under the hood
