I can deliver this car there for 250.00 to carlisle, Up for grabs is my 1973 PLYMOUTH DUSTER Big Block Pro Street / Drag project car. YES i have the CLEAR title in hand. This is a 3/4 of the way finished drag car that i wanted to do Death Proof style, that I have not had time to finish and I finally came to terms with letting it go and let someone else have a chance at finishing it. When i got the car it had a 440 in it To start off I want to state that there is NO and i mean NO motor in the car at the moment. The transmission, (which is still in the car) is a 727 torqueflite with a 3800 stall converter and Reverse shifted Manual Valve body. It is shifted by a B+M quick shifter in the floor. The rear end is a narrowed 8 3/4 with 4.56 gears and Moser axles with 31x18.5x15 Hoosier Pro Street tires on Vintage CRAGAR Super Trick wheels. It has new rotors, lines and calipers on the front and drum brakes on the rear. The car has a very nice 8 point cage installed with the hinged driver side section. The car has been professionally back halved and has a ladder bar type 3 link with subframe connectors and Adjustable Coil over drag shocks. There is a 10 gallon Aluminum fuel cell in the trunk with 3/8 aluminum fuel line installed along with the Nitrous bottle brackets with lines and aluminum battery box with a battery disconnect in the tail panel. There is basically No interior to speak of currently other than door panels, a drivers race seat with race harness, and an 8 point cage. Like i said, I was going for that Death Proof movie car look and feel. This was a factory tinted glass car and all glass is good with no cracks or chips. The lights work as well. All the ignition is wired along with the Mallory high flow electric fuel pump, fuel line, Filter assembly and Monster tach with shift light and fuel pressure gauge. The Nitrous setup is controlled by a Jacobs Nitrous Mastermind mounted to the dash and wired up as well. It ALL WORKS. The car comes with HOOKER Super Competition 2" inch primary Big Block Mopar Fenderwell headers, along with a short exhaust system if you want to tame the noise a bit. I also have the radiator and new starter for the car. Basically you are getting a pretty much solid bodied Duster that needs the dash panel completed, the rear wheel tubs installed, Most of the expensive race parts are already bought and installed. There has been well over $8,500 in parts put into it already. Start pricing out a Back Half with installing it and a 3 link along with the numerous other parts and see how quick the price can climb well over my start price. My starting bid is VERY cheap for a car built this way already. I am letting this car go with a very reasonable starting bid ,the car has a reserve . everyone has a fair chance to get it. it is for sale locally reserve the right to end auction if sold locally If you have any questions please feel free to email me.or call 9312100595 vern Good luck bidding. payment in full within 10 days delivery available 500.00 deposit in 48 hrs buyer to pick up . or arrange delivery MAY CONSIDER TRADE FOR OTHER MOPAR

We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.
The Plymouth Superbird is one of those classic American cars from the muscle car era that has captured the imagination of all sorts of automotive enthusiasts long after its presence on roads and race tracks wore away. It's easy to see why. Where else but in the Swingin' Sixties and Seventies would a car leave the factory with an aerodynamics package that included a pointy beak and a rear spoiler that sat several feet above the rear deck?
The example you see above, which was born in 1970, is one of the finest Superbirds we've ever seen. Combine its complete restoration with its original 426 Hemi engine, and it's no surprise that it managed to bring in a cool half million dollars (plus 10 percent in fees) at Barrett-Jackson. See it yourself in our high-res image gallery above, and scroll down below for the official auction description.

Before Chrysler had Street and Racing Technology, it had Performance Vehicle Operations. What the two entities have in common, before SRT became its own brand, of course, is that each was created to take Chrysler and Dodge (and Plymouth, before it was unceremoniously killed off) vehicles to the next level of style and performance.
We'll leave the question of whether or not the old Plymouth (and later Chrysler) Prowler was ultimately a stylish, performance-oriented car to you, but the boys and girls currently leading the SRT charge at the Pentastar headquarters are keen to accept the retro-rod into the fold.
According to the automaker, all of SRT's current high-performance models owe a debt of gratitude to the old Prowler, due mostly to that car's use of lightweight bits and pieces and innovative construction techniques. If nothing else, the fact that the Prowler's frame is "the largest machined automotive part in history" is pretty cool. Read all the details here.
