Just found this car for sale:

Since it's a clone i have a hard time putting a value on it.
But I feel that the current bid of $41,025 is already the upper end for a 1970 318 challenger convertible with some kind of 440 engine, fire damage (which seems minor, i know) and a rebuildable title?


But it looks like a nice car. I would recover the bucket seats and rear bench with black leather though.
Alternatively change the door panels to white.
 
To bad it will have a salvage title. Damage looks minor. 41k too high. You can find a complete nice convertible clone in the 55-60k range.
 
They do seem to have gone up some
Here is one listed FEBO for 77k
I still think something like this, the OP would be further ahead then the fire damaged one with a salvage title.
 
Well i think it also depends on what exact 440 engine (and driveline) this is.
If this is a true 1970 440 Six Pack Engine / Driveline it would be obviously worth more than if its out of an RV dressed with a Six Pack.

What ever the engine is it's not original to the car so whether it's a true 70 V code block or a later block it makes no significant difference to the value of the car...
 
The only problem is challenger convertibles don't grow on trees.
 
Well i can't wait to see what it will finally sell for in less than 2 days. :)

That engine is probably full of water from being extinguished.
 
Easy to say now of course but that $41k was enough for that car.
