    1962 Dodge 880. "One owner" car out of California (my guy never registered or drove it). Zero rot on body, just a little on the hood. Most umolested and honest patina car I have ever seen.

    1965 Chrysler New Yorker four door. It was a 413/727 car, but the owner ripped the drivetrain for another restoration.

    It was interesting to load without a rear end.

    Thanks for finding homes for them. The 66 300 and 62 880 are my favorites, I hope the new owners plan on getting them back on the road. It's a damn shame the owner allowed so many cool cars to get in the condition they're in.

    Wow a Rumble Bee bed lying on the ground. That means a Rumble Bee has died. As a former RBT owner this saddens me

    I like the bamboo, man but that stuff will grow anywhere, won’t it?
    Hopefully happy endings for all of these cars, good on you.

    The 1962 880 brought back a lot of memories. My dad bought 10 of them for his taxi fleet. 9 were white with red fenders, and 1 was just like the one you posted, light blue. Thanks.

    Not necessarily. The bed has some damage and beginnings of rust, so truck might've gotten a better bed put on?

    Both are doing so, I tried to find people that are restoring or driving all of them.
    The guy that got the 880 is keeping the Patina too!

    Yeah. It was parked close to an embankment and turns out it was soft and the truck rolled off of it. I'm probably going to sawzall the logo off the side to put on my wall. Bed is pretty trashed.

    Lots of Mopar Memories in those cars, remembering how great they were AND looked when new. AND can be once again.

    Thanks,
