1984 Dodge Shelby Charger - Needs to leave my driveway!

Car is very original, very complete, and has many new parts
I'm very willing to negotiate on the price.

Car is located in the Detroit metro area - NOT in Ontario!

Flickr picture album is here:

Engine was completely rebuilt and assembled by a former Mopar Performance shop
- 2.2 liter Chrysler engine (without turbo - Shelbys didn't get turbos til '85)
- Not sure about bore size - when I checked head bolt torques I decided not to pull the head
- Head is a completely rebuilt 5203655 - I don't know the actual specs
- Mopar Performance Purple Shaft cam
- Block part number is a 'standard' 2.2 block that predates the car
- Though the Shelby got a 0.030" milled deck the block numbers are unchanged
- I haven't measured the block to determine actual height or compression ratio
- Engine has never been fired since rebuild
- New carburetor, new fuel tank, new fuel lines - all assembled but never even primed
- Carburetor is a Mopar Performance non-feedback version of stock configuration
- New radiator, water pump, etc - assembled but never primed
- Rare 4-into-1 header installed, but no further exhaust

Original 5-speed manual transmission - could use new linkage bushings
- New clutch and resurfaced flywheel (when I installed engine)

Body isn't perfect but is presentable
- Minimal outer body rust - only significant rust spot is leading edge of RH rear fender
- Most panels smooth and clean, though original paint is pretty shabby and faded
- Glass is in great shape all over with no cracks anywhere
- Shelby plastic moldings are relatively intact
- I even have a replacement left front lower molding - missing in the pictures

Here are the struggles...
a. Rust
- Drivers side floor is quite rusted and soft to the touch
- Passenger side floor isn't anywhere near as bad, and other areas are in decent shape
b. Electrical System
- When the engine was originally removed it wasn't a 'gentle' process
- Much of the engine bay harness appears complete but I've never finished putting it together
- I have a couple similar harnesses that go with the car if things are missing
- I know for certain that some lighting and interior wiring will need work
c. General Reassembly
- This has been an on-and-off (mostly off) project for nearly 20 years
- Minor reassembly tasks are needed just about everywhere - such as cooling and fuel systems
- I recall doing some brake work a number of years ago, but expect to redo some items
- Tires on the car hold air but are otherwise garbage

- 95,000 miles on the odometer, no idea of the accuracy
- car last registered around 1998 - last plate expired in 1999
- The car was sold at the liquidation of the performance shop along with the engine
- Car has been sitting - sometimes garaged - since the liquidation sale
- I have the original, green Michigan title
- Several boxes of parts included in the sale - radiator fan, air cleaner housing, wiring, etc

I'd be happy to walk a new owner through just about every detail I know about the car.
I have to choose projects - and this just isn't the one for me.
