Yes, I know it's not a REAL TD
... but it does say Chrysler on the trunk!
The last time this car was for sale, it sold on ebay for $7000. I was either trading the buyer for his restored 65 Mustang or taking the cash.
eBay Motors: Chrysler : Chrysler (item 170182356163 end time Jan-07-08 17:02:26 PST)
The day before the sale I took it to the shop to do a few things to it and the oil line from the oil pan to the separator came off effectively draining the oil pan along the way. I thought all was well, but the car developed some blowby which I deem unacceptable. I had planned to swap the engine that day, but the buyer had to back out due to family issues. (before he knew about the oil line) It has no rattles or knocks or smoke, just blowby.
It runs and drives fine like it is, but now has blowby.
The reason it won't be up for sale until 3/15:
SOOOOO... I am swapping the engine out with my low mileage flatty that has my beautiful non-jet head. I was told it was a Marnal--I am not sure I just know it has "SVM" stamped into the front of it and it's a non-jet head. The engine runs strong and I am going to miss it!
I would have already done the swap, but I had to have surgery last week and it hurts to breathe! My stomach muscles should be healed enough by the weekend to get started.
So, the price is now $5750 with the new engine swapped in.
...or $5000 like it is--you replace the rings or complete engine. Available sooner with this option
Look at it this way, it's an easy $3500 car in stock trim that has over $2000 in wheels/tires/spacers/suspension and over $2000 in other mods/new parts. (new flywheel/clutch/slave/master/line/shift knob cost over $800 alone) ($350 in braided oil & turbo lines)
If it doesn't sell, I will take it back to stock and sell it for $3500--then sell off all the mods. I should easily surpass the $5000 price at that rate...off selling only a few of the parts! Ebay here it comes!
This car has very low mileage for the year in comparison to other examples. (76,203 miles)
I am not getting out of these cars, I have 2 of them and really only need one. This car is low mileage and I don't want to run the miles up and hurt the value of it. I want one I can drive and my flatty seems to fit that bill pretty well.
