Not all of them are Mopars, but man, look at some of those cars! I see at least two 66-69 era B-Body wagons I could get behind in a heartbeat!
$500k seems like a steep starting price, but I don't doubt that there's that much in parts there. Its a shame I don't live closer/have more rich friends!

I lived in Phoenix for 10 years. Not much rust, but the sun absolutely bakes the interiors. Dash pads are brittle and have fissures in them.

Oh, I know. Interior work happens to be my specialty, though. Its the bodywork stuff that I could do without.

I'd absolutely LOVE to have a 69 Coronet/Satellite or 70 Satellite wagon or sedan as a daily driver. I would rehab it just so much, so that it didn't leak or choke me out with fumes, and I'd probably add fuel injection for reliability, and then I'd drive it all the time.
I almost bought a 68 Coronet wagon out of Worcester a couple years ago, but it was an ex drag car and there were a lot of shoddy parts and repairs done to it. Plus, I was on my way to law school and knew I wouldn't have the time or money to restore yet ANOTHER car.

One of my favorite Mopars was a ratty 75 Dart. I never had to worry about dents, rust or scrapes because it was rough.

Haha, kind of like my 74 Dart then. Nice on the interior, primer black on the exterior...

No Rick, I wish it was, I would have kept it.
It was a guy who owned a metal/towing/repair business in Worcester. The car wasn't totally terrible, it was fairly solid, it just needed a lot of miscellaneous work done to it and while I had the money, I couldn't justify not sinking that money into the 69 Coronet I already own versus yet another project that needed work.

Rick, I don't believe so, he had it up on CL for a while, but I haven't seen it up in almost 6 months.
I don't have any of his contact info so I can't tell you for sure, but I could look around for it if you like...
