This car is not being represented as a restored car. A few areas of the car have been repainted, so it is not technically a survivor car either. All sheet metal on the car is original Mopar, no aftermarket. The car was very nice and complete when I bought it, but I had dents repaired on the L front fender, trunk lid and rear valence so those had to be painted. There are other areas of the car that were re-painted before I owned it as well. See pictures.
It is in amazing condition for its year. The floor pans are absolutely mint and the inside of the doors are absolutely pristine. You will not find nicer R/T doors than these. The Texas climate was very nice to this car. I took the interior apart to inspect it when I first bought it. I decided to apply POR-15 as a precaution to stabilize and preserve the car, even though it technically wasnâ€™t needed. I also applied it to the cowl areas when I had the doors off to restore the hinges. Its probably never going to be that apart again so I thought it was worthwhile doing it while I was there, and I was repairing/restoring the window channels with POR-15 as well anyways.
There are only two areas that would need attention in the future. On both sides in front of the rear fender wells, the paint is bubbling as there is rust coming through. I was going to repair these areas as well, but it wasnâ€™t really needed at the time. Now I have too many cars and too many projects at this point. This is an easy repair but there is no reason in my mind to do a complete â€˜frame-offâ€™ restoration to this car. Its simply too nice and too complete. It runs and drives really nice, as it should with so many new parts. The engine is still in fine condition and uses no oil. Iâ€™ve owned the car for almost 10 years now and taken it to many shows, at which its won awards. Its a very nice car which anyone can enjoy on day one, and for many days to come. But if you should choose to restore it to perfection, its an easy project as its 99% already.
Thanks for looking.

I've lowered the reserve on the car significantly - I'd really like to sell it in this auction.
I've received a few messages about the car. I tried copying the replies here, but the automated system Ebay uses doesn't seem to work anymore. So I'll be pasting them here:
1) hi, what is the orig color? green? thnx
- Hi, no its white, all original never painted a different color. Code GW3 on the fender tag is 'Bright
Can you drive it every day without problem?
What's a engine,transmission and rear axle condition?
Is there two places where is rust?
Do you know how big areas rust found?,are you inspect it,
because the paint is bubbling.
Have you bought it like project car?
- Hi, yes you can drive it every day if you would like. Its actually not bad on gas either if you keep your
foot out of it! I drove it far and wide to car shows. Its as reliable as when new, maybe better due to the
Rear axle is all new except the 3.23 gears. Trans is rebuilt, engine has original mileage, perhaps 85,000.
Runs perfect, burns no oil. Slight valve cover leak you can smell.
Yes there is rust there, no I didn't take it apart to inspect. Just 42 years of building cars I'm pretty sure I
know what I'm talking about.
Yes I bought it as a project car to putter away with almost 10 years ago. I've improved it a lot while I've owned it.
Thanks for your questions!
