    The question here is what would ya pay for one if ya were looking for one? For a couple years I've been wanting to sell one of mine to recover some garage space and some other lame reasons. My post in the body panel thread has me less than interested at the moment.

    Anyway, lets play the game.
    76 built 12/75. 360-2, 904 floor, 2.45 rear. Documented 2nd owner, actual mileage 120k. I've had it since 98 and have copy of previous title. Very original condition but paint turning to dust. Very nimble for the gear and always thought 1st owner had done something done under the hood. Maybe cam?

    How much and / or how much with the NOS metal it doesn't exactly need but could use? First few pics as bought, last few from about 3 yrs ago. Lives in garage. Detailed maint records and runs like a top.

      FYI, I had a very nice RUST FREE 79 300 (Cordoba) with a new $900 TTI exhaust. All new body bushings,steering parts$300, Fresh Thermoquad $475,upgraded non-leanburn ignition $200,New wheels and tires $1200. Plus more stuff I can't remember.About 80K on the clock.Needed nothing.Had it for sale for $6K, about 1/2 of what I had in it.Was able to get $3200 after 2 years trying.Now that's just my take on it.
      These cars don't get much love at all. Wish I never sold it. Good luck with your sale.

        I've had it posted for exactly what I have in it: $6500. Put 60k on it myself.

        I'll tell ya what, exactly every person that I've ever met that says "I used to own one" follows it up with "I loved that car, wish I still had it".

        To be honest, I like option B. Minimal body work as seen in pics. Clear coat preservation to maintain the patina. Only original once, capture it where it is and build the other garages already. When I finally spin up my long stalled 76 CD I'll wish I had this one.

        Strictly just my opinion and not looking to incite,lol! I like the car and could live with the color. I am a huge fan of all original and lower mileage(as witness to my '77 Cordoba)and rust free. That would be a huge issue for ME, I am not looking to replace metal and repaint. The one positive in my book is it is a Daytona but no t-tops or anything else to get me excited. With the rust issues alone and not even discussing anything else I would not consider it....but if that were a non issue I think the best I would do is $3-4k depending on the rest of the car. I wish this era would get more love and money,lol, but it may never happen. Time will tell. Good luck with it on what ever you decide.

        Fair point on the body work and it's only gonna get worse. I have a full nos tail but it doesn't need that much. I know a guy that could patch this with my used tail but then you're painting it. I think the value ads are the options as many had less sporty ones - especially tuff wheel. Paid almost $3k 20 yrs ago, some appreciation would be nice.

        Better as a pair? The remetaled, repainted one is an original 76 Daytona 360-2, 904 floor, wire wheels. Run hard, put away wet in 1986, scooped it up around that time. Rebuilt suspension, 360-4, 727 from late 80s MP catalog, 9 1/4 disk rear from 75 Imperial. Found tuff wheel so it matches except for the cop rims.

        I think of it as 'Jekyll and Hyde' Daytonas and weirdly the build date of one of them is April 1st. Would loose money on the pair, have double the regret, but keep together?

        IMG_2208.jpg I wasn't trying to be a Debbie Downer either,I think they are great cars.I should say "Road Cars"super cruisers. Turn on the A/C hit cruise control and some tunes.The rumble of the 360HP and the highway,that's where these cars shine! In my case anyway.

          It is what it is and that's pretty much what it's always been - ya can't give em away. I've seen a lot of really nice stuff in the $5k-$9k range sit on Craigs for a year or two before changing hands.

          Very true but in this case it's whisper quiet - still has the cat and stock style muffler and even the resonator. 70 mph feels more like 40 mph.

          Yesterday I had some old guy knock on my door and ask if the 75 was for sale. Conversation didn't last much past how I wouldn't let it go for anything less than I had in it. As I hadn't taken if for a tear lately, tried to talk him to a ride - 440 TQ, 3.21 SG.

          Says he might come back on a warmer day. It is what it is.

            In 1975 My brother and I worked at a Dodge Dealership. I thought the 75 body style was the worst looking thing Mopar ever thought of. Well my brother bought one and it became the family road car as our Dad was driving a rusty old Dart and we wanted him to have a better car. Many trips from Pa to Va,N.Carolina,S.Carolina,Georgia,Florida.I also drove it to Denver Colorado a few times. Great cruiser,I grew to love the thing.

            And those things will corner quite well, also.
            Dad bought a 75 doba new-360, leather buckets but...it was a demo so he got a good deal...but it was yellow/white. I got a lot of razzing when I drove it. As opposed to the Challenger he traded in. Everyone wanted to race.
            RWG75 that is a purdy Daytona. Whoever buys it will get a nice car at a decent price.

            There probably the cheapest MoPar to get into period. They super rarely sell for what there worth. Or should be worth. They also make
            For excellent low level drag cars unless you start in with them on a serious level. Things that differ from the earlier B bodies are easy to get around but are a extra cost above an already expensive endeavor.

            ISO suspension, T-bars for racing are a big zero, etc...

            I always thought a BB version would make a great sleeper.

            As long as it is NOT stock! Look into power output of the smog era mills. Pitiful!

            I had a ‘78-400/4bbl./727/3.55’s. Crappy performers but the basic haul ass parts are there.
