Factory vacuum operated trunk release

Car is in good, driver condition. Used to have a black vinyl top, but it was shredded from the sun, so it was removed and roof was painted.   Most of the paint on the car is original...only the front fender extensions and part of the left front fender are NOT original paint.  Car is a very solid, no rot , dry climate car that has spent it's life in dry Montana and Wyoming.  Only rust that I see is slight bubbling on left quarter panel above the fender skirt.  Also has rust in trunk floor on right side in the area of one of the plastic plugs.  Trunk floor is very good except for that one area and some surface rust.  Frame rails, lower quarters, floors, etc. are excellent!

Interior is presentable, and nice for the age.  Door panels, dash pad, headliner, etc. are excellent.  Rear seat cushion has one split seam, and right seat has a split seam on backrest and a couple of other small flaws.  Also, there is something wrong with the reclining mechanism of the right seat, so it leans back a little bit more than it should.

Engine seems fine...I have only driven the car around 500 miles in 4 years, so it never gets the cobwebs blown out of it...that is the main reason that I am selling..just no time to enjoy it and no inside storage for it.  It is too good of a car to let sit and go to waste!
Transmission works fine
Car drives good ...probably as good as it did in 1967
Air Cond. works...heater is bypassed so I assume that it needs a new heater core
Factory cruise does not work
Car stops, but is making a scraping sound in rear...I installed rebuilt master cylinder and brake booster. I have new brake hoses, and brake shoes that go with the car.

Has aftermarket chrome wire basket style 15 inch wheels....including spare.  I believe that these were installed early in the cars life.  I have the wire baskets, but they need a good cleaning...I left them off as I don't like the looks of them.
Tires are old, but have good cracks yet that I see, but I would recommend replacing them.

If you have any questions about the car....please feel free to ask BEFORE bidding!  Car is being sold as is with no warranty.  I would recommend trailering it, but I have driven it on 20-30 mile runs with no issues, but have never been on a long trip with it.

Shipping is responsibility of purchaser, but I will gladly store it for up to 6 months.  

I reserve the right to cancel auction at any time up until reserve is met.  Once reserve is met, auction will continue until the end.

Chrysler's Hurricane engine detailed ahead of 2016 launch

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 15:03:00 EST

We've been hearing distant rumblings about Chrysler's new Hurricane engine for some time now, but details have been hard to come by. Now, Automotive News is adding some specifics to the scuttlebutt, citing Chrysler documents. According to the industry publication, the Hurricane will blow onto the scene in 2016, but it's not an all-new engine. Rather, it will be rooted in the company's existing 2.0-liter four-cylinder Tigershark powerplant (shown above), albeit with "many new technologies to achieve excellent fuel economy."
It's not clear what sort of technologies Chrysler is referring to, but the Hurricane is expected to continue to use an aluminum block, and the finished product is expected to generate even better figures than the existing 2.0-liter's 160 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque (as found in the Dodge Dart). Automotive News notes that the updated 2.4-liter Tigershark debuting in the entry-level 2014 Jeep Cherokee has its basis in the 2.0-liter lump, but unlike the smaller engine, it's been fitted with MultiAir2 electrohydraulic variable valve timing to realize 184 hp and 171 lb-ft and greater efficiency.
Perhaps the Hurricane will incorporate the latter in its bag of tricks? Either way, we're hoping for a more generous torque curve than the what's in the current 2.0-liter Tigershark, which is something of a slug in the Dart - even for a base economy compact.

Total auto recalls already on record pace in 2014

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:30:00 EST

If you've noticed that there have been more recalls than usual this year, you may be on to something. According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the US market is on pace to break a record for recalls. In 2013, 22 million cars were recalled. We're only a third of the way through 2014, though, and we've already halved that figure, with 11 million units recalled. That's wild.
Considering the past few months, it shouldn't be a surprise that General Motors is leading the charge, with six million of the 11 million units recalled coming from one of the General's four brands. Between truck recalls, CUV recalls and the ignition switch recall, 2014 hasn't been a great year for GM.
Other recall leaders include Nissan (one million Sentra and Altima sedans), Honda (900,000 Odyssey minivans), Toyota (over one million units in a few recalls), Volkswagen (150,000 Passat sedans), Chrysler (644,000 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs) and most recently, Ford (434,000 units, the bulk of which were early Ford Escape CUVs). So while it's been a bad year for GM so far, its competitors aren't doing too well, either.

Detroit automakers mulling helping DIA avoid bankruptcy looting

Tue, 13 May 2014 18:01:00 EST

It's not really a secret that the city of Detroit is in lots and lots of trouble. Even with an emergency manager working to guide it through bankruptcy, a number of the city's institutions remain in very serious danger. One of the most notable is the Detroit Institute of Arts, a 658,000-square-foot behemoth of art that counts works from Van Gogh, Picasso, Gauguin and Rembrandt (not to mention a version of Rodin's iconic "The Thinker," shown above) as part of its permanent collection.
Throughout the bankruptcy, the DIA has been under threat, with art enthusiasts, historians and fans of the museum concerned that its expansive collection - valued between $454 and $867 million by Christie's - could be sold by the city to help square its $18.5-billion debt.
Now, though, Detroit's hometown automakers could be set to step up and help save the renowned museum. According to a report from The Detroit News, the charitable arms of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler could be set to donate $25 million as part of a DIA-initiated campaign, called the "grand bargain." As part of the deal, the DIA would seek $100 million in corporate donations as part of a larger attempt at putting together an $816-million package that would be paid to city pension funds over 20 years. Such a move would protect the city's art collection from being sold off.
