Default RE: Advice on buying a 1971 Challenger

Forgot to mention the gauge cluster is not installed, but the owner has it! Also all the door panels, even the small vent window. This guy has 7 Challengers!! two 1970s, two 1971s, one 1974 and the other two I have no idea. He won't sell the others.
However, Im sure some interior trim would be needed, thanks for your offer to help. Will let you know if I finally reach a deal.

Do you have a website or a name and number for that guy that is selling you the challenger? I am not interested in the cars, I just wantto see if he is willing to sell any parts? I have a 71 and am in the middle of restoring it and need a few little things here and there.

1 badmirada,
What catalog do you have? Is it yearone or something better?

Are you looking for original? Or is cheaper after market new parts good enough?

check out this web page:


http://stores.ebay.com/P-G-CLASSIC-S...toreviewQQtZkm

Nice resto and after market at this web page also:

http://www.tuffwheelrestoration.com/index.html

Bolt kits to redo everything brand new:

http://www.mmsacc-stainless.com/html/mopar%20body.htm

One of the cheapest places I found for interior and exterior parts is:

http://www.jimsautoparts.com/

http://www.penstar.net/

I've researched the best prices for redoing my car, and there are some things that you can get cheaper bidding on over ebay, finding in a junk yard, or buying new after market. It depends on how original you want to go. #'s matching etc....

Me, I want the looks like original, but brand new modified car. I don't need number matching.

Well the deal is off... I discovered it's not a true R/T...and originally had a 6cylinder engine. A friend who knows the seller warned me about him and his ways of doing business.

I can't recommend you this guy, he will surely dissapoint you and you will only loose time and money!

What!? You aren't taking it? Who Cares!? I have been keeping my eyes open for the one car I cannot get my hands on, and you are passing this up? You are making me sad man! [sm=smiley19.gif]

If you are looking for an original R/T, be prepared to pony up...Personally, I don't care what challenger I get my hands on, as long as its a challenger! The nice thing is with a car that doesn't have the desirable options, you have a more freedom to build YOUR challenger as opposed to what it was originally.

That's disgusting that some sleaze is trying to take advantage by pawning it off as the real thing...Keep looking man, she's out there...That's what I tell myself.

Dodge1969, are you putting us on?

That car was a steal!

BTW, Daisy Dukes Restorations is the new kid on the block. She has the best prices on all body metal and interior parts.

Available on Ebay but cheaper by phone.

Plus, she's a girl with a car parts business!

Call 1-888-8 DAISYD
