    The car is obviously not numbers matching lol.


    I saw this car for sale in Illinois in 2012. I couldn’t buy it at the time due to employment issues and had started restoring a 73 Charger SE and didn’t have the funds. In 2014 saw the same guy still had the car so I called about it. Turned out the other guy who bought it stopped paying after he had paid like $1600 on the car. I went out the next day and put money down on it. Paid it of in 2016 and got it home. I have started collecting parts for it. I intend on starting the resto as soon as time and money allow. I am restoring 3 other cars to sell that will finance doing a couple of the cars I am keeping. This car is no. 2 on my list of my dream cars. The only thing it needed to be was B5 with black stripes.


    I work in a restoration shop in Anderson IN. I am a 17 year veteran of the US Army. I am 50 now and have a 17 year old daughter. Mopars are life lol. I have at least one of every year Charger 67-74. All but the 74 are big block cars. The 67-71 are all 440 magnum powered originally. I also have 70 and 71 Super Bee. The 70 is a FC7 six pack car. A 70 GTX, 70 ‘Cuda, 71 Road Runner. There are more lol. I have around 22 Mopars in varying states of decomposition
