Interesting.
Wondering how much it will fetch..
Noticed dash clock and headrest options -
Headrests are almost impossible to find.
Clocks appear to be slightly more available

I'd love to do that car: My days of chasing high buck parts are over though.

Nothing that another $50k to $70k+ won't cure
after you pay that extortion for the rusty hull
that's before any shipping $$$ costs
or for all the parts it will need, shipping costs too
from a car (albeit cool year of Hemi GTX) from a state that used salt
that car was driven in, put away wet & rode 'very hard'
when it was still alive (many many moons ago)
the rust issues are far worse than you can ever see or know

get a tetanus shot 1st

might be worth the time & hassles in today's rising market
67's never brought the same $$ 68-70s do/did

good luck

I like it, and will be watching to see what the final price is. The block is a 66, cast in 65. One head is a 67, the other a 68. Another 10K might build the engine. I have a 67 Hemi automatic transmission that's fresh. The tachometer, clock and headrests are great options. Red over black is sort of common, but it's a Hemi, so what.

No Dana60 in an original hemi car? I'm no expert lol... it decodes to a hemi, but they don't really say that particular hemi do they?? I like the guy who bids $426 for it lol. Did that ever work??

Did anyone notice that there is a brake booster, but there is no way the Hemi will go in there with that booster. That would be the booster for a 440 car.

Good eye. 440 cars got the bendix with disc's. So a drum brake Hemi got the bendix as well?

Not sure of the exact booster, but the lack of the off set bracket makes it incorrect. You are probably right in that it got the bendix booster too.

With today's inflation, I'd say 70K is a minimum.

O-rings cut in the heads which means that they were most likely heavily raced & probably are beat.

I’ve seen much worse with respect to rust. But thinking about the body work that would be involved to get it all straight again gives me a headache.

Sure would like that block so I could have a date coded block for my car. Those o-ringed heads put caution signs up.
