    I am looking to buy a 1969-1971 Dodge Polara or Monaco 2 door hardtop. I’m hoping for a “drive while you work-on” kind of car but they don’t really seem to come up at all. I didn’t realize how rare they actually are these days!

    I am located in Massachusetts. Thanks for any consideration if you have one to sell!

    Didn't @71Polara383 have one for sale a while ago?
    Good luck with your search.

    Is that the burnt orange one that had a 440 and buckets/console, and then got parted? When I look up these cars in search engines I come across that one a lot when it was in its complete form.

    It’s too bad I wasn’t looking back then since I would have snapped it up at that price. I wonder what it would have been worth now.

    They do come up for sale. In the past year alone, for example, several of each model-year cars in which you're interested went for sale not too far from you.

    Just thinking about 1971s, there was a burgundy Monaco 440-4 in upstate NY initially listed for $15k (which I snagged last February after the price was reduced to $8.5k, and which I have since gone through mechanically with @71Polara383's help), a 1971 Polara 440-4 in NJ (the second of two '71 Dodges with white buckets known to survive, and a superb example to boot -- "Blue" was sold privately by a member a few months ago). A running project also sold, @71Polara383's Monacucamonga. If you wanted a slightly rougher project, I can think of three right off the top of my head: a burgundy Monaco 383-4 that @amazinblue82 bought in Michigan a couple of months ago; a gold Polara (originally 383-2, now with a 440) in need of TLC in NY, advertised last August for $3k; and a Canadian white K-code Monaco that was advertised last August for sale in Ontario -- I don't think that Canadian car popped up on FCBO, though, and I became aware too late that the car was for sale. Here are three (lousy) pictures for records.

    Again, that's just off the top of my head.

    Right now, I know of a '69 Polara, a '70 Monaco, and a '71 Monaco that may be available to the right buyer. None of them is perfect, but all of them are good running cars that I would not hesitate to buy. What specifics are you looking for, and what is your budget?

    For 1970, what do you think of a white '70 Polara 318 in PA that listed for $7k last August? That car may or may not still be available -- the ad disappeared, but no one has since shown up on FCBO to claim the car.

    EDIT: I just communicated with the Pomonos seller, the car sold to the first person who saw it. Here she is on its way out.

    Thanks for all that info! It’s nice to see some were for sale. Too bad they never seem to hit the national ads (Ebay, Hemmings, etc), which explains why I never find them.

    I don’t really have a lot of specifics really. I just like the 2 door hardtops the best. I even tend to like the greens/golds/browns better then the brighter colors, which should work in my favor. My budget is healthy, as I had been looking for 1968 Chargers ($$$$) but failed miserably with that for a long time now.

    If you can't find a '68 Charger to your liking, chances of finding a '69-'71 Monaco/Polara to your liking are even slimmer. Keep looking though, you've found the right place now!

    Indeed the '69 to which I was referring has a front bench seat.

    That E86 440HP Polara 500 went for sale two years ago, and was not quite a driver (I understand it had quite a bit of rust), but someone like @71Polara383 could have made it into a driver for you. I don't know what happened to this car, though. The seller, @mopargem, was last active a couple of months back: you may want to PM him.

    On the other hand of the price range and condition scale, is this superb 'vert. DM27G9D211272 recently sold to @polara10x500
