Great news, she will be saved! Do you have a photo of the fender tag?HI got a good laugh when I saw one of my other cars on page 6 of this thread! (...) Here is the story with her.
I (w)ent to a local farm last April to buy some engines and whatever other rusty stuff I could get. He had this Newport under a tree, covered in pine needles. He said he would start it up now and then, and it should run.
I am a sucker for big mopars, so I brought her home too.(...) Even though this one is a 440, 2 door, that grille wasn't what I truly wanted at first, so I listed in on eBay for 2 grand. I was honest and mentioned that has rust in the quarters, and can't be driven regularly until the tank is cleaned, and that rear quarter didn't fade like the rest, so it didn't sell.
(.BUT.) This 73 has really grown on me. It is parked where I walk by it everytime I leave or get home. I can't seem to part with it. I had no desire to restore it before, but now from all of this reading on fcbo, it has really grown on me. I picture that blue with a white top shiny and new.. it would be sharp (...) I have decided to drive this one
Indeed. @monaco75 ran a thread on the diecast model here. There are copies available on eBay for interested folks. @Jim 68cuda has reviewed models he owns here. High-res pics of an example (missing its LHS mirror) are here.The last one looks like the template of the 1:18 die cast model.
it ended up in germany
