Damn dude,
Thats a good looking ride right there. The spots to watch/ look for the most for rust on the cars is the seal area for the trunk lid and the underside of the door frames. other than that I'd say woohoo. that car is really good shape.

I honestly don't think I've ever seen one of those before now.

That is one sweeeeeet looking ride. It almost looks like a Chevelle and a Jaguar's bastard child.  :P

I like it. How does it run? How much did you pay? Do you think it needs a good leg stretching to blow some of the carbon out of it?  :P

You should change that oil out really soon dude. No telling how long it's been in there.

A new set of plugs, cap & rotor, fuel filter, and PCV valve might help too.

Not very expensive at all, but will make a huge difference.

Don't forget the carb cleaner while it's running trick either.

How many miles on it? and are they correct?

Ya gotta love those odometers that lack the 100,000 line of numbers. What, did they honesty not think their cars and trucks would make it much further than 100k?

So do you know if the car sat for a while?

Was the last owner a 25 in a 35MPH zone kinda driver?

Do you know the last owner?  ...and are you able to ask them questions here and there about what has been done to it?

I wish I could do that with my RC, but it came through a dealer from an auction.

Cool, those slow drivers carbon the hell out of the engine.

Are you going to keep it stock, or beef the hell out of it?

I'd remove the vinyl top and side trim and add a Road Runner stripe 'after the paint job of course'some old school alum slotted mags would look awesome on it too.

Friend of mine had an ex-1/4 mile 1974 Satellite w/a 440... Car was bad-ass but all he wanted it for was to get more money (which he did)...His stalled out one day just outside the garage doors.. We tried to push it and about broke are backs.. I then tried moving it with an '83 Monte I had at the time, first nose to nose.... Those bumperettes ended up going through my grille.... Hmmmmmmm, lets try reverse.... Car started to move then just about made it over the lil lip... Rolled up then rolled forward only to hit the trunk of my car again w/those bumperettes and put two lil puck marks in it.... Mannnnnnnnnnnnnnn?!?!?!?!?!

Unfortunatly I sold this car cause my mom said i had to get rid of everything but one a few years ago, I kept my 1986 Grand Wag but i am so kicking myself in the ass for selling this especially now since one of my good friends just got his 69 dart back from paint.

I used to have the identical twin to that car. Loved it. Wife traded it for a 92 Daytona that I despised. Never saw the Plymouth again.
I know you understand what you think I said, but what you heard isn't neccesarily what I meant.
