Brought it home... discovering more about it..It is a pretty clean car, absolutely minimum rust.. gonna dig in some more tomorrow..thanks for all the chat y'all.
I'm thinking this is not the correct hood, the front won't even physically let it catch the second latch.
I guess I should start a garage here in the forums, I didn't want to until I had it in my possession.

Love that AMX, just traded mu AMC Javelin for a 73 Charger SE...I like your charger as well.. I'd love to find one of those tail fins. I also need interior, my original plan was to strip it out and sell all the smalls.Brought it home and cleaned it up, now I don't think I can tear it up. It looks good enough I think I should.build it.

The Charger looks good, very straight and solid. I have a 69 390 4 speed AMX project that I am hoping to get to at some point.

I found it on Craigslist about six years ago, listed for $700.00! I couldn't pay the guy fast enough! Complete and solid, needed restoration, missing the engine. I bought a 390 engine complete for the car.
Love it, I'd probably jumped on it myself.
I'm in Mopar heaven right now, guess I'll have to put the Javelin dream on hold for a while. Got three running Mopars, 74 Scamp and a 73 Charger SE, and a '77 C30 Dodge Sportsman Tuffy motorhome.

Rocky—-keep them both you will be out of college soon and on your feet. If you sell one in 5 years you will post here wondering why you did it. I will read your sob story in this forum. That’s if I don’t run out of my warranty first at 72 years old.

Thanks for your input Dennis. I appreciate it. I am trying to avoid this exact situation. Lol. At this point, I am thinking about moving on the Charger. Sadly...
