This car is not a junkyard refugee. I bought it from an older gentleman (2nd owner?) in this area in 1998. It had been stored outside under a tarp for several years. The car was complete to the nut and bolt but needed everything due to age and elements. I had it up and running shortly thereafter, before disassembling it for a full restoration. Everything has been stored dry since my purchase and all pieces and parts (other than those noted) are bagged and boxed and go with the car. I no longer have the original 318/904.
Sale includes everything listed above and items pictured, as well as all of the small miscellaneous parts, brackets, hardware, etc. that came from the car. I also have the fender tag (pictured) and at least one build sheet for this car.
If car sells by Buy-It-Now, I will throw in a complete, untouched 69 steel crank 440 4bbl with 727 tranny that I removed from a 69 Chrysler 300. Motor is complete from AVS carb to pan (less exhaust manifolds). Ill also throw in a new set of Mopar Performance XHD leaf springs (new, never installed) and a set of 440/Hemi torsion bars (.925).

Lawsuits are an unfortunate part of doing business in just about any industry, so the latest complaint filed by a California-based aftermarket firm against Chrysler would seem to be nothing more than business as usual. But this isn't the first time the two companies have sparred over this particular issue.

According to a report from Automotive News, the dispute revolves around the Scat Pack name that Chrysler first offered on the Charger, Coronet, Dart and Super Bee starting in 1968. Scat Enterprises, a manufacturer of crankshafts and other components for Dodges and other vehicles, sued Chrysler for using its name. A few years later the Scat Pack disappeared from the Dodge catalog.
Fast forward to August 2013 when Chrysler applied to register the Scat Pack name anew. The US Patent and Trademark Office turned down Chrysler's application, but the automaker proceeded anyway, unveiling new Scat Packs for the Challenger, Charger and Dart at last year's SEMA show.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, you've no doubt read about all of the big future product news coming out of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles today. We had individual brand reports from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Maserati and even Ferrari, but in the interest of simplifying and summarizing, we're going to list out the hard facts once more. Of course, with all of this still off in the future, there's still the possibility that a few changes will be made. But as of what we know right now, here's what's coming, and what's going away.

2014: Refreshed 300/300C, debuting at Los Angeles Auto Show
It's typically hard to find early examples of the Dodge Viper that haven't been crashed or modified, but one eBay seller has a showroom-fresh version of the V10 roadster up for sale worthy of an eBay Find of the Day.
With just 504 miles on the odometer (according to the description and not the images) and "no defects at all," this 1994 Viper is a rare find indeed. Tack on the Buy It Now price of just $37,500 and it seems like a steal - especially when checking out the prices and conditions of other early Vipers currently listed on eBay.
Even after spending months ogling the all-new 2014 SRT Viper, it's hard to ignore the raw beauty of the original open-top model. From the three-spoke wheels to the calf-searing side pipes, everything about this Viper looks just the way it did when it rolled off the line almost 20 years ago. The seller even says that the top and windows have never been installed meaning there are no scratches anywhere on this car!
