Nineveh, Indiana, United States

You are bidding on a 2 owner 1970 Coronet R/T ( yep, a real one). Records I looked up show just a little over 2,100 made in 1970, a one year only body style.  I have had this car since 1976 when I bought it from the original owner. Currently in the car is a big block 400 ( I have the matching 440 magnum motor for the car), mild comp cams  camshaft (.545 hyd), 516 heads with 906 size valves, (I have the factory 906 heads) 8 3/4 with 4:10 gears and spool, 742 case( I have the factory 489 case posi w/3:55 gears). Has moser axles ( I have the factory axles with the adjusters), MSD 6AL ignition system ( I have the factory points distrib), aluminum radiator( I have the factory one), aluminum water pump housing( i have origanal) 727 tranny with full reverse valve body. The stock shifter has a different plate so that it works with the reverse pattern( have factory plate). Has 3,000 stall converter. Hooker headers with Flow Masters 3 inch exhaust ( I have 2 sets of the factory exhaust manifolds) edelbrock intake with 650 dbl pump holley ( I have the factory intake and carb), I think it's about a 12 gallon fuel cell in trunkl( I have the factory gas tank), duel batteries, holley blue pump.  I have raced this car in sportsman class ( runs 13:30's to 13:50's depending on weather) past two years. Car is uncut, no roll bars or frame ties, wanted to keep it as close to factory as possible.All lights, wipers and horn works. I have the factory key set that came with the car. The entire front end, tie rods, ball joints, A arm bushings, ect are PST kit.  After buying the car in '76, it was my daily driver. After getting married in '81, didn't drive it much, In the late 80's, I took the factory motor out, (it was still running fine), and disassembled it, to put a different motor in it to go racing, I didn't want to blow up the factory one. In early 90's, I pulled that motor and parked the car inside where it remained until the fall of 2012 when I got it back out and ready for racing again.  I have the factory build sheet and the fender tag is still in place (see picture). Along with the car, if you win the bid, there are years of carburetors, tranny coolers, pulleys, kick down linkage, fans, aluminum fuel lines, 2 Pistol grip shifters ( one for B body and one for E body ) another fuel cell, aluminum bug catcher, stainless trim wheel rings different sizes, another 440 short block with steel crank, stock tranny valve body, several pairs of big block heads (452 and 516), intakes, a set of 2.14 intake valves, plus more, This will be a Package deal, no separate sales, I don't need all the parts if I sell the car and need the parts if I don't sell the car. There is a reasonable reserve on it and to give some who might really be interested an idea, last Sept, I was offered $17,000.00 for just the car because as the guy said, he has not seen an untouched car of this year with such a great frame, floor and trunk. It will need new rear quarters as the picture shows, unless you just want to fill them in. This car was originally light green and in late 70's, I had it changed to black ( was a light sanding and painted over original paint). There are places on the car where you can see the original color if you were wanting to paint it back to that color. It also is a factory vinyl top car but that was in bad shape so I took it off, sanded the roof and it is in black primer now. Selling because I have came to the wakening that I am most likely never going to strip this car down and do it back up  ( no time, space or the money). I have 2 choices then (1) just keep it, race it till I wreck it or it does rust away (2) sell it to someone who will strip it down and restore it back to it's former factory glory. So, thought would try the second option first. The Mopar Nationals are coming up, so, if you wanted, you could buy this package deal, set yourself up a swap meet booth there to recover a considerable amount of the price and put it back into the car, just a thought. This is AS IS/ WHERE IS purchase,  ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY IMPLIED OR GIVEN. NO OVER SEAS SALES.  CASH ONLY UPON PICK UP. NO DOWN PAYMENTS THEN REST LATER ( bad experience with that) You must at least meet the reserve price to win the car, otherwise, no sale.( thought would add that because a friend had someone that was highest bidder but didn't meet reserve threaten to sue him because he was high bidder and thought that alone entitled him to the item, even though he did not reach the reserve)  It is for sale locally also so the bidding maybe cut short. Any questions, murphyphil52@yahoo.com.

Challenger A/T Unlimited Concept could be your next Hellcat-powered ORV

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 16:32:00 EST

This past June I spent an excellent day hanging out with Joey Ruiter, driving and discussing his Reboot Buggy project. Before heading home, I let him know that he was more than welcome to keep me abreast of whichever new automotive project he'd get into. You can never have too many car designers and one-off fabricators in your Rolodex, right?
Ruiter recently made good with the follow-up, emailing me with details on this Dodge Challenger A/T Untamed Concept that pushes a lot of hot buttons for the muscle car and off-roading enthusiasts.
This all-terrain Mopar is a lot more than a Challenger body dropped on a truck chassis, too. A materialized version of the A/T would included a completely new, long-travel suspension, skid plates, body armor and rock sliders, and obviously flared fenders to help accommodate a hellacious set of off-road-ready tires. The dramatically revised underpinnings would be topped with a slick graphics package and a killer lower light bar, all making the A/T look quite cohesive in its own, radical way. And the result would be a car no longer limited to mere road-driving.

2015 Dodge Charger priced from $27,995, Hellcat from $63,995*

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 09:00:00 EST

Ladies and gentlemen, let's get the most salient bit of information out of the way right off the bat: $63,995*. That's the amount of money Dodge dealers will be asking for (at the very least, naturally) for a 2015 Charger Hellcat (*plus $995 for destination on all pricing figures). That rather reasonable sum will bring home its buyer a 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine boasting a supercharger to post such gaudy figures as 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, leading to a top speed of 204 miles per hour to go along with an NHRA-certified quarter-mile time of 11.0 seconds.
With that out of the way, the rest of the 2015 Dodge Charger pricing information breaks down as follows: $27,995 will deliver a sedan with a 292-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Moving up one step of the ladder nets the buyer an SXT model with the same engine, but a nicer chunk of technology and optional equipment for a $2,000 premium. All-wheel drive adds another $3,000. Hemi V8-powered R/T models now boast an eight-speed transmission bolted to the same well-loved 370-horsepower engine as before, for a base price of $32,995.
The SRT 392 model that had hitherto been the top-performing Charger brings with it an asking price of $47,385 while bargain hunters can equip a Charger R/T Scat Pack machine with that same 485-horsepower 6.4-liter Hemi, albeit with somewhat less posh interior bits and pieces, the removal of the 392's adjustable suspension and hi-po wheel and tire package for $39,995.

Ram to go on a Rampage with new small pickup?

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 13:30:00 EST

When people look back at today's automotive industry, what do you think they'll remember us for? The emergence of hybrids? Ever more expensive and exotic supercars? The dawn of the self-driving car? All likely scenarios, but so is the blurring of lines between one bodystyle and another, giving rise to hardtop convertible coupes and crossovers of every shape and size. But one bodystyle the North American auto industry has stayed largely away from in the past couple of decades is a car nose and chassis with a pickup bed.
It's a bodystyle immortalized by the Chevrolet El Camino, but with few exceptions, we haven't seen too many of these automotive platypuses in recent years on our turf. Subaru tried with the Baja and the low-volume Honda Ridgeline soldiers along largely unchanged, but the genre's biggest adherents are still Down Under, where ute versions of the Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon live. With a few other examples scattered to the four corners of the earth, that's really about it. But if these spy shots are anything to go by, it looks like Fiat Chrysler Automobiles could be working to bring it back.
Spied undergoing testing in Michigan, what we appear to be looking at is a heavily disguised Fiat Strada being prepared - like the Fiat Ducato-based Ram ProMaster and the smaller Doblo-based ProMaster City - for Stateside duty as a Ram product. The Strada, for those unfamiliar, is a product of Fiat Automóveis in Brazil and is based on the Palio economy car. The nameplate has been around South America since 1996 and was originally designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro (long before Volkswagen monopolized his talents), and takes a more rugged approach in the form of the Strada Adventure.
