There's one here in my neck of the woods too. It is for sale but looks like a borderline parts car.

 

I like yours a lot and I'm sure it comes with some iron.

Looks like the Batmobile.  I had a 68 dodge 4 door Monaco with the 383 2 bbl. Car had some iron in it for sure but that engine let haul the mail. Loved that car and it only cost me about $400 bucks back in 74 or so. Sold it about 2 years later for $200. Are you going to pull your Barricuda with it?

The Golden super cruise is a blast! There is a white 300 that was at the last cruise in September with a cross ram 413. I'm a sucker for the big block land yachts!

We should meet up for it at some point.  

@Mopar1973Man  I may need help wiring up a high idle switch for it!

Very cool.  Those tail lights look like something out of Mad Max.  Looks like Chrysler has had dash issues for a while! :lol3:

Thanks to Nick, we got it running today.  

New fuel pump and running out of a gas can, but it started right up.  It needs a new starter and the engine is FULL of some really nasty sludge.  However, the trans works, it charges, and it should be on the road soon.  

 

A couple taps on the carb was all it took to free the stuck float, and even the accelerator pump works.

 

Im planning on flushing the engine with some snake oil and multiple oil changes.  After that, mabe pickling the cylinders to try to get the rings clean.

Awesome.  

 

I need to pull the starter.  Theres a shop in the springs for alternators and starters if i cant free it up.  

 

Then the plan is to going to auto hobby shop to pull the pan, then the enema will commence... along with the fuel lines, filter, etc.  Ill let you know.

Texts ok?  I still want the power wagon! Haha.  But i doubt that will happen.  

 

It is mint.  The only downside about it is closed knuckles.

Friend of Mine bought an early 70's 2500 4x4 four door crew cab from California with a 440 and auto that is super mint as well but he paid considerably more for his.

Crew cab dodges are really expensive right now.

She was more than a little fussy getting off the trailer.  A full tune up is in order.  The funny thing is that once in the garage, the car ran fine.

New news!  

 

Unfortunately, @Me78569 and my schedules haven't meshed again, so I have been drinking all the beer by myself!  Evidently @TFaoro doesn't like beer, takes all kinds I suppose. 

 

Anyway... 

 

The starter pinion gear was near ground off on the original starter.  I found an awesome speedo/auto electric shop http://www.speedoservice.com/.  They rebuilt the really rare original starter for $110. New points, dwell and timing set, it still ran ok, but not great.  

 

As I was trying to set the timing, it seemed like the timing marks were pretty far out, about 70 degrees.  The original owner had two plug wires crossed.  After fixing that, the car runs really well.  

 

I think a brake cylinder is weeping on a brake, it needs new seat skins, new speedo cable, window fuzzies, door seals, and needs the heater controls cleaned out.  Aside from that, the car really drives well.  

 

I plan on driving it daily when the weather is nice. i added what I feel are tasteful vintage decals to the car.

I prefer whiskey.... Beer... eh. 

Car looks good! I'd like to see some fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror though.
