[color=#00bb00]1970 Challenger Convertible is it DEAD or ALIVE?[/color]
Buying a project car sight unseen has it's pros and cons. Especially from your own website. The original listing:
- Well It was garage kept for the past 9 years!
- It absolutely had lots of new sheet metal as advertised
- The interior and small parts seemed to be accounted for
- Who needs a suspension and drive train anyway?
- The Whirly Jig it was mated to was complete and like new
- The car is off the market and mine
- I think that's about it...
- When negotiating the deal I planned for the worst and that's what we ended up with
- Good metal welded to rusted was prolific
- E-body convertibles are notorious for not having readily available and affordable sources for parts
- Due to incorrect bracing the car was shaped like a banana
The first evaluation of the car begged the answer to
"Is this car a Dead issue or is there enough Life still in it that the effort and dollars be put forward to bring it back to a life on the road." as a Frankenstein of the Mopar Classic car world?
What I should have done BEFORE we closed the deal - Run like hell....
