    Hi all,
    I would like to know what MoPar you would go back in time to order?
    of course we would all order an E body HEMI 4 speed 'vert and pickle it, so I will assume that is #1 as an investment.
    My personal favorite would be a Black over red with black interior '69 Coronet R/T convertible, 440, auto, A/C power and windows.
    I think I would love to see my current '66 Monaco 500 as it came off of the assembly line to find out just how weird it looked with a Mauve over white paint job.
    I photoshopped a picture with that color on the roof, not pretty.
    I hope it is one of only a few.
    Let's dream!
    Scott

    Didnt have to think twice.

    1961 Imperial Lebaron .
    I would be checking off every option box I could when ordering.

    Dual a/c , stainless roof inserts etc, etc.

    Also in Pinehurst green poly (GG1) .

    Not that I have thought about this over the years while day dreaming.....

    Found this brochure in my in my stash from ‘70. Apparently that Vitamin “C” cuda caught my eye as a soph. in H.S.
    5E66A9E8-8DD8-4877-83DD-C66FD2AD2886.jpeg

    According to my marks in blue my dream car back then was.
    8C498797-E5E7-4273-9862-22DAE8E87896.jpeg 4C5CE900-3ECF-4BEB-A147-F31A43499F4E.jpeg
    340 ‘cuda w/pistol grip 4 spd
    Vitamin “C” Orange, no vinyl top
    Black int. w/Houndstooth cloth buckets
    Elastomeric bumpers
    Racing Mirrors
    Rallye Wheels
    Rear Defroster
    Solex Tinted glass
    Power Windows
    -items to add would be P.S., P.B. and a Stereo.

    I’d still love one of these!!
    p.s. Ironically, I didn’t find out till 35 yrs later Dad’s group designed the Shaker system. Bet if I had known back then that option would be added.

    There are A LOT of Mopar cars I would want. however the ones that stand out to me and I would want more than any are either a 1970 Chrysler 300 H with power windows/brakes, rim-blow wheel, dual exhaust tips like the Sport Fury GT, and Polyglas tires.

    Or a 1970 6bbl Sport Fury GT, EXACTLY like the one in the picture.

    Honestly...

    I'd be sitting down with the salesman DEMANDING a 426 Hemi in the 70 Polara vert I am considering buying.

    Oh man, that's a hard one. I'd go for a '55 or '56 Chrysler 300. Or a '65 300 L 2-door hardtop with a stick.

    Nope, I'm stupid about them. Whichever got me hideaway headlights, and a 440 six-pack is what I'm talking... Again, I'm not a Fusie guy, all of mine have been slab side.

    This thread reminds me of the Ed Norton character in the movie “The Italian Job”.
