    Hide away headlights? A 440? Bucket seats and a console? Red and the roof comes down? Who couldn't love something like that? Evidently not me lol

    Nice, but they don't match. You'll paint it gold right:poke:.

    Thats the plan, do the mechanicals and get it rolling down the road again.

    Its pretty solid, for a NY car. Needs your typical lower quarters & trunk drop downs along with two half dollar size holes in the floor pans.

    Biggest concern is the 440, turns over by hand but thats as far as I know..

    And the AM/FM radio and rocker moldings sadly... I do have the alternator, needs rebuilding.. but I do have it lol

    Not much of a back story on it. I saw it at the Lebanon Valley Mopar show amongst the 8 or so swap meet vendors the other week. Cool dude owned it but he was a big B/E body guy. He had just pulled it out maybe 2 weeks ago of the barn of the deceased original owners where its been since 1987 based off the registration/inspection sticker. He was going to pull the drivetrain & console if the car didnt sell. Needless to say, the price, delivered, was right and I was able to save the car.

    Now '69 Chryslers arent really my thing. I much prefer the rear of a '70 or '71. But this car checks almost all the right options so we'll see how much it grows on me lol. Would be cool with a 3rd pedal....

    have one. mixed feelings about it. never drive it because it's something of a pain around town. but it is fun for the couple of times a year that i get to drive it. if i had the choice to convert it again i definitely would not.

    Hmmm. I Dig it.. yank my chain once you get it roadable if you’d like to move it along. Just a thought.
