    hello all .. looks like I found the right home to learn discuss and share .

    I recently bought ( from a friends father in-law ) what he told me is a numbers matching car .

    I’ve spent a lot of the last week just crawling around the car and running my hands all over it to learn her life and look for sign of how she’s grown to be a sweet and sexy 45 year gal

    I can tell , and was told that prior to my buddies father in-law , the car was owned by a local collector who passed away .

    I’m learning as I go along and I’m very lucky to have a lot of old school Mopar guys as friends . Some of my fathers friends
    are in their 60’s and 70’s and have years more experience than I with all the in’s and out’s of the Big Block B Bodies . I plan to be buying a few steak dinners and filling a few fridges with beer

    So without further chit chat I’ll post a few pic’s of my latest purchase .

    Thanks in advance for all help and friendships

    Peace
    Kev

      The underneath is very clean and rust free ( concidering that I’m on the West Coast ) their’s surface rust and bubbles
      On trunk lip hood lips fenders andvery small amouts at fender bottoms on passsnger side

      The Trunk is in amazing OG condition!
      The Floor is like new !

      Car has been repainted / and NOT all bondoed up , in the 90’s . Seems the previous owner cared very much for their purchase and wanted it to last !

      For that I’m thankful
