    Well found this today. Me being a dumptruck driver i get to see stuff that cant be seen from the road. Today i was dumping some dirt for a older gentleman and we got talking a little and i told him i was a Mopar guy because he was trying to sell me a 80's Ford truck. Well he walks over to the barn door, slides it over, and i couldnt get over to see it fast enough!

    Looks like a Royal Lancer with a poly & 4bbl. Custom Royal Lancer likely would have a 315 Red Ram Hemi.
    Even if the car is complete and solid it would NOT be a project for a low budget restro or a novice. I hope it finds a home with someone who understands what will be involved and the investment required. Not enough of these finds left to put it into the hands of a hack. JMHO.
