    I grabbed a 70 Charger right front fender off the local Craigslist today! They are getting very hard to find these days! It is 95%rust free,and straight too! 20200801_170751.jpg 20200801_170801.jpg

      How many of your children did you have to trade for it?

        They are not cheap anymore,people know that they are not being reproduced,and price them accordingly. Years ago you could by a nice one for $100-$150,then they got into the $250-$300 range,these days they are in the $500-$750 range. There are people asking over a grand,but I am not seeing them actually selling in that range. I paid $500 each for the last two I bought. I have five 70 Chargers,so I grab them,when I see them come up for sale at a reasonable price. There was a guy on Dodge Charger .com asking $3900,or trade for a Bobcat tractor for one fender that was not an NOS fender,he still has it,and his estate will still have it long after we all are long gone!

        I'm feeling mighty good about the $500.00 Charger fender I bought. The guy who was asking $3900.00 for his 70 Charger fender on the other site,now has them advertised on here,and he's down to $2300 each for them! He's blowing the shit out of high prices! To quote the movie Used Cars! Lol

        I picked up a 6th 70 Charger shell last weekend! It's not pretty, but the frame rails, engine bay,cowl and rocker panels are all very solid! 20200809_103403.jpg

          I'm currently eyeing a 70 V-code R/T - numbers matching B5 over B5.... needs a full resto but it's still tempting at $20K

          That's not a bad deal for a V code Charger R/T. There were 337 V code automatic transmission equipped cars built, and 349 4 speed manual transmission equipped cars built.
