As I got shit for mentioning something NON-Mopar from a NON-Viper owner over at the morgue (where the action in Off Topic belongs in a nursing home), I thought I would throw this here. A friend of mine collects older muscle cars, as well as a couple newer ones (two Vipers). He has a '70 LS6 Chevelle in Carousel Red, a '70 Shelby GT500 convertible in yellow (1 of 2), a '70 Mustang Mach 1, a '69 455 Hurst Olds, two '72 Hurst Olds Pace Cars, and some other odds and ends. Well his brother showed up at my house this weekend and asked me to help him sell this car:

I was amused that he and his brother both collect similar years of muscle cars. He is just about finished with a '69 Camaro Z28 restoration (yellow) and is apparently in the hunt for some other muscle metal from the same era. My only gripe is that they don't have any classic Mopar in there. A nice Cuda or '68-'69 Charger would be just the ticket...

Clint - The car RUMBLES like a good muscle car should. Nice cam with just enough shake to let you know this isn't some sissy convertible that grandma used to drive (although my grandma probably would have).

Toast - Price? Well since you asked, he is going to have a "Buy It Now" of $19,900 when it gets listed on eBay this Thursday night. His reserve will be less and I suspect he would take a hair under $19K for this numbers-matching car. I expect it to sell on eBay, as the price is pretty darn good for this vintage, engine, and being a convertible to boot. Should be fun to watch!

Thanks for the comments here and abored. And yes, I spelled that correctly. /images/graemlins/wink


PS. Here is a preview of the auction with all the pics:

Campaired to what the same vintage Mopar iron is going for these days, that's a bargain. My '64 Plymouth went for almost almost double that on Greed-bay.

Oh yeah, the car sold for the Buy It Now price of $19.9K within 12 hours of being listed on eBay. Guy wired all the funds the next day and flew up to see it on Tuesday (loved it). Gets picked up by an enclosed transporter tomorrow and heads to its new home in Florida!

Great news Chris :thumb: Hope the guy takes good care of her. Thanks for sharing - poor Joe would be so ashamed if you posted the result back over there. /images/graemlins/wink
