1970 Dodge Swinger 340.
Hi, I was going to send in pics of a 70 Plum Crazy Swinger that I had bought, but I see there already is one! I bought the one on Page 48 under the snow, here are some pics of us with it on the trailer.  It is an original 340 3-speed standard car with 2 options: Plum Crazy paint, and a rear defrost.  Rubber floor, bench seat, 3.23 open rear, dog dish caps, the way they were supposed to be.  I have the broadcast sheet and fender tag for it, also.  I thought people would like to know that it was saved and will be redone (although some people think I'm off my nut).  Thanks for the time.

Wow a pretty cool 340 Swinger just sitting there!!!

This is a fun yard to spend a day at, but his prices are a bit steep.  I guess that's why the stuff is still there.  I considered buying the pink one so I could have pink and purple bookends, but this purple one is going to be an ugly project and the pink one is worse!!!
I'm in need of a nice 70 only (thumbwheel radio, no flasher switch) rallye dash cluster, if you happen to know of one I'd appreciate it.  I've actually found one but the radio area is cut out, so I really only need the plastic bezel.  I've pretty much found everything else to put the Purple one back together, which I think is a small miracle cause it was missing pretty much everything. Basically my plan is to build a F.A.S.T. (Factory Appearing Street Tire) type car out of it, totally stock appearance right down to the exhaust manifolds, but with a 416 stroker in it.
