      I have never been able to figure out peoples facination with slant 6 cars. Yes they were great reliable transportation back in the day, but they are boring under performing slugs to actually drive. They are rare,yes,but desirable not so much. This car would make for a good big block powered 4 speed Road Runner clone, or modern powered resto mod. Keep in mind that slant 6 cars have no sway bars,small brakes and weak rear axles. I can't see the thrill of driving a car that a twenty year old Toyota Corolla can out perform in every category. I had a 71 Barracuda convertible that was one of 163 built with the slant 6 engine, and after two weeks of driving it with the top down, the slanty had to go,and the driveline was swapped out for a rebuilt 383 Magnum, automatic transmission, and 8 3/4 sure grip from a 71 Challenger R /T. 20190114_195318.jpg

        Some of us like the oddball historical aspect.

        My 73 was born without carpet, drip rail trim, or a day/night mirror...

        ...but with air conditioning.

        I have only ever seen one equipped the same way.

        I have since installed carpet, but I LOVE to point out the oddball factory build items.

          My 74 RR came from the factory in white paint with red stripes and a blue interior. Love how weird it is.

            It's refreshing to see some /6 and 318 cars out there.

              My 67 Belvedere wagon is white with blue interior and with a red stripe in the aluminum side molding.

              I REALLY like a R/W/B Mopar!

                I’ve got one and yep, the slant is coming out in favour of a big block. They just plain don’t look right in the engine compartment and I can imagine just how impressed I’d be with 165 horsepower it would have, I’m guessing 20 more than stock As it has an aluminum super six intake, hooker super comp headers and a performance Holley 2 barrel, all of which I’ll be selling!

                Any of you slant 6 lovers want these performance parts?

                        I dont mind slant 6 cars. There cheap to aquire. And converting those to 8 cyl does not hurt anything.

                        MarPar that's one Bad Ass sounding slant six! Never would have guessed it was a 6 from the sound of it!

                          That guy really made a mess out of that car with the ugly-ass Petty blue paint & the gangster whitewalls sure don't help. If it were a rust-free car, it would make a nice driver with a more powerful V8....even a 318.

                            Looks like it's a B5 car.

                            I'd have gone back with that.

                            Looks pretty straight.

                            Wheel lip trim does not look factory.

                            At least they painted the engine bay!
