Professionally restored in 1987? Holy shit, did they park it outside after that and never touch it again? WTF happened to the back bumper? I know it's a Mopar, I know it's a Challenger, but this is not what I expected to see when I saw the title of the ad with a price of $7500. :smt102

By the way, I hate ads that tell the buyer all the stuff they could potentially do to the car. "Would make a great ____" I'm sure the buyer does not need your help in deciding what to do with the car. As if you had never thought of that, but now that the seller mentioned it, you now see it's potential and are convinced of it's value.

I read that as "This thing has 2.78 gallons of body filler on it. The quarters would be gone if they werent polyester resin and talc powder."

My bad, it was parked in 1995, so at least it was driven after the "restoration"

This one is only $11,500. The paint isn't really my style, but it seems to be a nice enough car. Either this one is underpriced or the other is overpriced. lol.

Challenger, the bastard little brother of the Cuda!!!!!!!!
Bigger. Challenger had a longer wheelbase.

I had both. 'cuda was a stocky mean looking, 71's in particular. But the Challenger had the sexy curves (until it got re-released as a retrofied pig).

My moms uncle has a 70 charger rt that he tried to sell for awhile. It was a 440 magnum with an auto. It was in a barn since 1991. At one time he wanted 2500 for it but backed out. I think he sold it for 3k on so
