68 Dodge Charger - Runs and drives great. Low mile 360 V8, 727 Trans. One of the previous owners installed rear quarter panel lwr repair panels. They are a bit wavy. He also welded in sheetmetal panels in the floors. Good job tho, no leaks. I did a repair on pin holes in the trunk right off the POR-15 website. At some point someone installed a 4 spd trans so the clutch pedal and shifter hump are still in the car. When I got it I drove it as a 4 spd for awhile but the engine gave out so I installed the 360 and 727 auto. The Charger was originally a 383 auto SE, gold exterior. The R/T emblems were on it when I got it. A few years back I also installed new poly front bushings, 11" brakes, u-joints, rear Hemi springs, front door panels, carpet and headliner. The chrome, rear side turn signals, wipers and other parts are in the trunk. The only things I can think of that are missing are the hood turn signal lights and the 2 tiny chrome angle pieces that join the top rail chrome with the windshield chrome. Speedometer is unhooked because it jumps all over the place but I have a replacement.The trunk seal and vent window seals will dribble water in a hard rain. I have enjoyed this car for years and hate to see her go but she needs to go to someone with the capability to finish her out right or just drive the crap out of her like she sits. I've tried to describe the condition of the car as best I can but in case I missed something the Charger is being auctioned as needing total restoration due to the fact every body panel needs some kind of attention, dents, waves, paint etc. Seat covers are original and showing threads. Wheels are old and showing some surface rust. So bid accordingly. If you are not up to the task, looking for a 'like new' car or can't pay then move on and keep looking. Email any questions. No trades. No warranties. Winning bidder will PayPal $500 non refundable deposit within 24 hours of auction ending and full balance within 7 days of auction end. Zero and bad feedback bidders will be deleted unless contacting me first. Charger is for sale locally so I reserve the right to close this auction at time of local sale.
A small number of units of the 2013 Chrysler 200 (inset) and 2013 Dodge Avenger are being recalled over a broken control valve in the fuel tank assembly. The potential 1,785 sedans were manufactured late last year, and if affected with a broken control valve could suffer from stalling or fuel leakage.
A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration notes that the recall should begin next month, at which time owners can take their cars to dealers for repair free of charge. The full release with more information is just below.
The annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas can often be a sensory overload of overwrought madness, with cars that don't even look drivable anymore. But every once in a while, a modestly modified show car graces our presence, like the customized Dodge Durango you see here, which, in addition to giving us our first glimpse at the aftermarket possibilities for the refreshed-for-2014 model, proves that a car doesn't have to be slammed, scooped, donked and Lambo-doored to have presence.
Sure, this Durango has custom hood inserts, dark 22-inch wheels and custom fender flares, but as far as external modifications go, that's it. Inside, Dodge has fitted new door sill guards, an ambient lighting kit, bright pedals, premium floor mats and - of course - Katzkin leather. The automaker has even added wireless internet connectivity as part of the excellent Uconnect infotainment system.
Performance upgrades are minimal on this Durango R/T, which comes packed with Chrysler's 5.7-liter Hemi V8. Larger brakes have been fitted, as have lowering springs (though it certainly doesn't look that much lower) and a custom exhaust.
No one wants to have their car stolen, but a new study by the National Insurance Crime Bureau has some bad news for older Honda owners and pickup drivers. Fortunately, it has better news for drivers overall. The group is reporting that according to preliminary data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, thefts were down 3.2 percent in 2013 (versus 2012) to fewer than 700,000 cars. That's the lowest figure since 1967. That's also less than half of the peak of over 1.66 million thefts in 1991. "The drop in thefts is good news for all of us," says NICB President and CEO Joe Wehrle. "But it still amounts to a vehicle being stolen every 45 seconds and losses of over $4 billion a year."
Honda drivers might not find it such good news with older Accord and Civic models topping this year's theft study. Toyota and Dodge can't really celebrate, either, with two models each on the list, as well. Overall, this year's list was split evenly between foreign and domestic models, which were mostly pickups.
The 10 most likely vehicles to be stolen in 2013 were:
