    and its haul'd many a wrecks like that imp . funny today if that car was just wrecked and still together , it would have been fixed . well hell i cut demons , roadrunners , challengers , chargers , letter cars , ect..... it was all about the value , then wrecks were just parts cars , i enough drove them in and cut them to pieces . this one almost went that way , but a factory black 4 spd rr , it needs to be saved . and heres the clip from another 69 4spd rr , it could have been built as well . have the hood as well , glass 6pck one and a freash air original steel one as well . saved this 71 r/t challenger as well , and the repair parts from another 71 challenger as well , it could have been built at todays values . 69 ROAD RUNNER HARD TOP SMASHED GRILL.jpg Scan0014_0014.jpg Scan0022_0022.jpg Scan0023_0023.jpg 69 ROAD RUNNER HARD TOP DRIVER SIDE.jpg 69 ROAD RUNNER HARD TOP GOOD CLIP.jpg 69 ROAD RUNNER HARD TOP LEFT FRONT.jpg 69 ROAD RUNNER HARD TOP SMASHED GRILL.jpg

    not sure what puller i'm going to use . i have a few that could do the trip , just pre'pep on all is needed . first would be this starcraft mh p400 w/413 loadflite runs on lp fuel , my dad's old unit , this 69 d200 crewcab but it just became a driver . still needs work , and this 88 c30 crewcab , its low miles tbi 5.7 th400 . it was my pops as well . so i'm still on the fence on the puller . the chevy gets the best mileage of all . but its a chevy ! so i'll push onward through this b...s virus and wait to get it done right . i want weight in front of that trailer with the large heavy load on it .

    Well I’d take the motor home, it’ll save you money on lodging that’ll more than outway any fuel savings the Chevy might offer and who wants to drive a Chevy anyway???

    The interiors are absolutely timeless on these cars, I didn’t really do anything but clean it up and refinish a few pieces of wood.:)

    well thats a fact on lodging , done that been there , lol . but she uses lp fuel is that an issue on the run to get to you detmatt ? it hold 100 gals , two 50's . gets about 6 miles per gal . so 300 to 600 between fueling it up . but its the best bet i think as well .

    I appreciate the old work horse trailer but I'd suggest slapping on a fresh coat of tremclad/rustoleum black. As a commercial trucker I would call that trailer "scale bait" as it sits. ;)

    After seeing the photos, I wasn't surprised to read on that it was a Suburban that plowed into the Imperial.

    Hi Matt,

    I have a '67 LeBaron, with a running and moving 440 and 727, that I'm going to be listing as a parts car in the classifieds. Sounds like you might have an engine locked down but wanted to throw it out there. I'm located near Columbus, Ohio.

    Thanks,

    Nate

    Just stay out in the hammer lane hidden on the other side of a Pre-Pass truck with a dummy box.
