Original: radiator support, doors, transmission, rear end, intake, 4 barrel, spoilers and scoops, seats, and dash. Not original: X-heads, 71 340 block standard bore and the car body. The 3 steering columns that are there one of them is cut, the original one is bent and the 3rd one is automatic. Everything else, what you see is what you get. Not sure if the J heads are original. I have all the glass, front glass, door glass, side glass and 2 back glass. As you can see in the pictures there's a lot of extra parts. The trailer is not included. I'm sure there are a few things missing like some screws and bolts that aren't there, also missing the passenger front fender extension. All rust was cut out, metal was welded in and then fiberglassed. The body will need to be blocked and sanded. Has 8 3/4 sure grip 323. The pic that shows the carburator, the block doesn't go. Just the x-heads, intake and the carb. I have the original sales slip and build sheets to it. Sold as is. Seller will not ship or arrange for shipping. Buyer is to make arrangements for shipping and/or pick up . Cash only after initial deposit. I reserve the right to end this listing at any time because I have it listed for sale locally as well. Thanks for looking.
Are you hesitant to pull the trigger on a brand new Dodge Avenger in hopes that a new one will be coming? Well, don't hold your breath. According to The Detroit News, Chrysler will be extending production of the current Avenger sedan through the end of 2015.
Originally, we heard that the company would kill the Avenger to better focus its midsize sedan efforts on the Chrysler 200 replacement. But then new reports stated there would indeed be an Avenger successor, and that we could see it as early as next January. This Detroit News report cites supplier sources confirming the extension of Avenger production, though Chrysler has not released an official statement on the matter.
These same suppliers say that the current Jeep Wrangler will live on through mid-2018 - that's right, another five years. The Detroit News reports that a replacement for the iconic, go-anywhere Jeep was due in mid-2016.

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.
