It really is crazy when you think about it. 10 grand for half a car. I passed on a 71 convertable for $4500 about 8 years ago that needed total resto.
I kick myself now that I didn't buy it. [sm=headbang.gif]

Makes the $300 my dad paid for mine in '89 seem like and absolute STEAL.

Did you guys also notice that the firewall is for an ac car and there is no ac code on the fender tag. This car is extremely suspicious as a car that someone is trying to pass off as an R/T. It is possible that someone replaced the firewall. I believe that this is not the original body to this VIN. I hope whoever paid that much money knew this. I am just saying that we need to be careful out there, With the value of these cars there are some shady characters to deal with.

I can't belief that car went for that much. I guess we are lucky for getting our challengers earlier. I paid a little of that amount for mine 9 years ago. At the time I thought it was a little of the pricey, but it was in great condition. I'm glad I bought it, even if it didn't increase in value.

I saw it and bought it for my wife. It has the right numbers on the cowel and some bonehead added a/c and swapped the lower firewall.

They did a lousy job but I'll put it back right. I knew I kept the hulls from the wrecked parts cars for a reason.

The radiator support was swapped from front end damage.

I'll have that car done and on the road for another $20k!

It is a real 383 convertible and I've always loved B3!!!!

Show me another restored big block convertible for $30k.

Somebody try us out. We do great work at a great price.

I did not mean to offend anyone. Just trying to raise awareness. I would love to see some pictures as you progress on the car's restoration. Do the Palco door panels fit well. I have a original 70 383 4 bbl that I had restored for around $20,000. Not a very good job for showing but ok for driving around the street.

AMCR, I would also like to see the resto in progress,I did mine in 1984, it was a driver then and no where near what you will be going thru. There were only 1,070 Challenger R/T convertibles made. You have a rare find.

WOW talk about connection. Nice find! Please keep us up to date on the progress and send lots of pictures please. This kind of reminds me of a second chance like they have for older dogs and cats. But this is a second chance for a nice convertible Challenger. Who would believe back in the 70s that today these cars would go for big bucks. Even the stripped and left for dead are bringing more money than what they sold for new. Way to snatch one out of the crusher.

Thatnks guys! It makes me feel warm inside knowing that I've found some kindred spirits.

I'll be happy to post the progree as I get into it but I might have a few other surprises for you too.

If you think that Challenger Convertible is bad, just wait until I post some of the rough ones! LOL

Most of my own cars are or were pretty rough. I blessed to have the ability, not to mention a business partner who is a master body man, to find some very rare cars in some very strange places for some very good prices. I don't sell my treasures but I've been finding them and stashing them away for nearly 20 years.

I'll keep you posted and load lots of pictures as we go but for now, just some hints:

Like convertibles do you? How about 6 packs? How about a Six pack convertible? How about a '71 J6 Hemi? Or an N96 Six pack? High Impact Colors?

That's just the Challengers! But I'm not biased - I love other Dodges and Plymouths too!!!

Check out my '36 Dodge Truck. It has a 1,000 HP Blown Hemi and it is for real! It's Know as the Super Goat.
