Car was restored back in 2000 while it still lived in the states, it then had a blown 472 hemi in it. it was imported to australia in 2010 and i purchased it in 2011 and that is when i began my pro touring project on her. car is registered and drives very nicely, this car was my baby and very sad to have to sell it. There is a couple of small things that need adjusting or tinkering with but other than that is complete and very ready to be driven as hard or soft as you like, it is LO2 mod plated and registered until december. it is also insured for 100k, not neally what it is worth. There is alot of things i have left out in the description, but everything has been updated or renewed with performance and durability in mind. i can guarantee you can drive this car daily and then take it to the track on the weekend and eat some ricers and ferraris. also comes with a car alarm system which is not installed and custom car cover


feel free to ask any questions, i have receipts for everything and pictures of the build, cost over 160k in cluding the price of the car inititally for me to build this project so i believe the deal is great

It's going to be pretty hard to top that one! That's one of the best I have ever seen IMO.
 
wow...sorry to hear about the job. good luck!
 
You said ask anything, how about this "what the #$^* is wrong with you"? "Seriously" your car is bad as hell and you've done so much to it "sorry, I just don't get it". Excuse me now while I go puke everywhere :puke: Alright Benno I'm done busting your chops but this is some pretty upsetting news. Good luck
 
Good luck with the sale, man it's tough to see it go. Good luck with the job, been there, bro, couple a times.
 
I think he is kidding about the job thing. Hope it goes to a good home. Can't wait to see you try and top that. Do you already have another charger body? Cant be easy to come by in Australia.
 
still waiting to hear about a job, been applying for jobs for and haven't been working for 4 months now. Get this a experienced Maintenance planner, Supervisor, trade qualified boilermaker and a diploma in international welding specialist and I still cant get work.

Charger is staying for now.

thanks for the kind words guys
