Seriously, as much as I love second generation Chargers, who would pay 170k for a green automatic car anyway?
Having spent most of my formative years in the back of a triple green 70 Charger R/T SE ,I am aware of how popular green was back in the day,it is not the most desirable color on a Charger now a days. Nothing personal about it,just stating the obvious and often said about green Mopars. If you have one and are happy about it, that's fine, but as far as the market for Chargers goes green is not a positive thing. That said, if my parents triple green Charger were to ever be offered for sale,I would buy it,just because it was our family car from 1970 until 1982.I do not like the idea of paying 6 figures for any car but i seriously like that my charger is green and automatic.
I even wanted the buddy seat option and column shift. Guess i'm not the norm here.
Crazy for 170k. Just last month or so I saw a '68 Charger on a rotisserie being sold in Canada, real R/T, matching #'s drivetrain 440, all the metal work was done, had all new legendary interior, and everything to put it back together for around $36k USD. Pretty much just needed paint and assembled. Dude who bought that car must have been having a little too much fun at the auction and one too many to drink.So I signed up on Mecum’s to be able to see the sold items that were not listed in their Top 10 listing for each auction.
I was wondering if it was a BS listing because the only 2 listing on google was the u-tube video and this discussion.
It’s on their site as a previous sale.
Here is the description.

It states Original Interior, seems unfortunately correct in that detail. The steering wheel is a funky shade of wood grain in my opinion.
I reckon that the numbers matching R/T is the key to this sale though there are no fender tag photos.

It is the first year of the “Great Ones” and, as mentioned earlier in this discussion, someone could be investing for the future. There was probably plenty of time to look this car over and hopefully hear it run.

The body seems rust free and maybe original metal.
But the one rare option that caught my keen eye was the upgraded Plymouth AM radio.
This whole thing may drive others to put their Chargers up for sale with Mecum’s. We know who wins there.
5-10 years and we’ll see if it was worth it.

Please give your rich friend my address lolI have a very rich friend. He knows nothing at all about cars. He goes to Mecum all the time and buys cars. All he says is that he wants it!! He always overpays and he doesnt care! A real spoiled brat. Im sure there are many out there just like him.
