I bought the car in 1979 for $1500.00 when I turned 16, it was my first car. It was my daily driver until 1981 when I graduated. It ended up parked at my parents farm when I bought a new car. A friend's older brother wanted the car a couple years later. I ended up giving it to him as I had no plans on restoring it any time soon.
I never seen the car again until this spriing (2007), I had not kept in touch with my friend much the past 25 years. I always wondered what had happened to the car. I assumed it was restored and sold several times by now with the prices that E-bodies are bringing.My sister who had kept in touch with the family started the ball rolling with me getting it back.
It turned out he never had the chance to restore the car, due to other priotorties like raising a family. He had numerous changes to sell the car but never did, The car looked as it did when I last saw it 25 years ago. He never did drive it, it's been sitting with a tarp over it the whole time. The rally dash looks almost new.
I ended up getting the car back for the same price I sold it for $0.00.
The car is a 1971 Challenger 340 RT. All the numbers match and has all it's proper tags. I also found a build sheet under the passengerside bucket seat. I've started a complete restoration on the car and hopefully it will be completed in the summer of 08.
I'm starting a complete resto on it and need the following items.
- Green pillar post moldings
- PS side fresh air vent cable
- Rally hood scoop inserts
- AM radio
- Rear defrost setup Found Still need housing for speaker
