The car was an original gold exterior and black interior. It was purchased from the second owner who had it since the mid 1970's. The paint is old and the body needs work but is still good. We will include a fresh rear quarter. The paint still shines but is old. There are many little dings,scratches and rust. The old bondo is cracking and pulling away. There is rust under the vinyl roof which was replaced and is a non original type. The front bumper is original. The rear is a replacement and in good shape. We supplied a new aftermarket rear valance for the R/T model. The frame is good. The trunk is clean with a few small openings at seams. The interior is good. The seats are ok with the exception of a few seams splitting from age. The carpet looks to be showing some aging. Its clean but looks like it might have been dyed black. The headliner is good. The dash board is cracked in two places by the center speaker. The dash board instruments are clean. The gas guage just stopped working and the speedometer crapped out when the new rear gears went in. The lights for the instrument panel are out. The ignition switch is new with a new set of keys. The front end has not been worked on. It will need attention but is fine for cruising. Power steering (very small leak). Manual drum brakes. All work well. The car drives well. The motor is very strong and reliable. The car is fast and sounds great. The car isn't perfect but has major potential. From a mechanical point it is strong. From a body condition state..it needs tlc and body work if you want a show car. For a cruiser and street machine its perfect. Build sheet is included (Broadcast sheet).

DART SWINGER: Blue on Blue. This vehicle was purchased from a very old German lady (94 yrs old named Cookie). She was the original owner of the Dart. I have her bill of sale and build sheet( Broadcast sheet). I took over at 24,500 miles and the odometer reads 38,000 today. She kept the Dart in a garage and waxed it three times a year. I kept it in a garage for a few years but unfortunately have not in the last three years. The Challenger wins that battle. I do keep it very protected but (Betsy...Cooky named the Dart this) would like to go back to a garage. The Dart Swinger has the most desirable paint code (GB5) as we all call  it B5 BLUE with a blue vinyl interior with wood grain steering wheel. There is no bondo on the metal. There are the usual issues with paint fade and a few small dings Cooky did while getting in and out of the garage. I recently sanded down the trunk lid and sprayed it with primer. The paint was fading down to the bare metal. The wheel wells are clean and the trunk is very clean. I show in one of the photos an area behind passenger side front wheel (small rust hole) where I sprayed a rust prevention application just to stop any future problem. This I did very lightly in two other areas known to rust in these models. The bumpers are in good shape. They still shine and are straight with an exception of one small ding Cooky did. The engine compartment still has assembly line # marks and sticker. The vinyl roof is original and in very good shape. The 225 six has a Holley one barrel which was professionally rebuilt and painted. The exhaust manifold was replaced with an upgrade for a Super Six set up. The original manifold was cracked. I upgraded the exhaust system from front to back with a 2 inch stainless steel set up with a little growl on the single muffler. This was done by American Muffler a few years ago. The valve cover was replaced and a new battery was just put in. The car has the original box A/C and it blows cold. I did replace the heater core. The heat blows hot and the defroster works well. The AM radio works great. The interior is mint. There is one small (1 1/2inch) tear on the backside of the drivers side seat which is hardly noticeable. The carpet is blue and in good shape. Original hub caps and radial tires with plenty of life in them. The power steering is working fine. The all around manual drum brakes were just serviced and all is fine. This car is ready as it is. It is so reliable and easy to drive. With the A/C working I would use this car in the warmer months and shut it down for the winter. The Dart can be taken very easily to show car quality or it can be cloned into a muscle car monster.

The two cars are not show cars but are very nice drivers. I am only interested in the sale of the two cars....not one. I am only going to respond to offers for the two cars. I am not supplying storage or shipping. Both cars were not damaged or affected by super storm Sandy. I am a car guy and want to sell these cars for the right price. I will be glad to answer questions....please post them through the Ebay message forum. I was limited to 24 pictures and chose the ones I used for the best exposure of what I have for sale.

REASON SELLING: I own six cars and have one garage. Its time to slip into the next stage of my love affair with the automobile. I will be selling a 1967 Cadillac Coupe DeVille after this Mopar package goes. Then I start my new treasure hunt. Which I haven't figured out yet.

Roadkill builds crazy-cheap 1968 Dodge Charger rat rod using an old motorhome

Tue, 24 Dec 2013 19:05:00 EST

Certain requests for description simply cannot be fulfilled, like if someone asked you to describe Picasso's Guernica or Gilliam's Brazil. There is only one appropriate answer to such entreaties, and that is: "You just gotta see it." That's where we are with the latest episode of Roadkill, wherein Messr's Freiburger and Finnegan dig out a 1968 Dodge Charger that Freiburger acquired in exchange for a set of cylinder heads, and intend to stuff it with the big-block motor from a long-bed, three-quarter ton Dodge pickup.
Only the pickup is too nice to tear apart, and the Charger needs a whole lot more lovin' - and parts - than initially expected. Enter, stage right, the Class A Dodge Pace Arrow motorhome with a 440 big-block purchased for $1,000, and a retired Plymouth Fury from a previous episode.
What ensues over the course of the 40-minute installment is more cuttin', yankin', leakin', stallin', hammerin' and smokin' action than you've seen in a long time, and some techniques that would have made even Cooter wonder, "I'm not sure if we should do that." By the end, though, the payoff is good enough to make you think about perusing AutoTrader for a '68 Charger just to see if maybe...

Dodge celebrates centennial with Charger and Challenger 100th Anniversary Editions

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 09:44:00 EST

In 1914, the Dodge brothers went from being a parts supplier to a full-scale automaker, and to celebrate the centennial of this milestone, Dodge will offer special editions of the 2014 Charger and Challenger early next year. Both cars will be sold in limited numbers (although no specific number was given), and these cars will stand out thanks to unique touches like 20-inch wheels, 100th anniversary edition logos and the exclusive High Octane Red Pearl Coat paint job (shown above).
The 100th Anniversary Edition package, which runs $2,200 on the 2014 Charger and $2,500 on the 2014 Challenger, comes with red or black leather seats with a cloud print (for a denim-like look) and metal badges on the seatbacks that read "Dodge Est. 1914," while similar logos are also found on the wheel center caps and front fenders. The instrument gauges are unique to each car, with the Charger getting black gauges and the Challenger getting white gauges, and to enunciate the 100-year anniversary, both cars have red numerals on the speedometer for the 100-mile-per-hour mark.
Finishing off the 100th Anniversary Edition cars, which will be offered on V6 and R/T models, Dodge adds a flat-bottom steering wheel and embroidered floor mats as a part of the package. Scroll down for the full press release for these commemorative models.

Marchionne on Alfa's US return, Dodge Dart's powertrain weakness and minivan plans

Fri, 18 Jan 2013 19:01:00 EST

As a reporter covering an auto show, the one opportunity you never want to miss is going to the Sergio Marchionne press briefing.
"This undertaking to bring Alfa back is a one-shot deal... We are not going to do this twice."
There just aren't that many real characters left in the auto industry. Marchionne, who sits atop both Chrysler and Fiat, is not only one of the smartest execs in the business, but also the most frank. Herein, a sample of the quotable always-sweatered executive:
