This ’70 Charger has all the right options, it’s an R/T that was originally painted Plum Crazy Purple, but sadly it’s in rough shape and is missing just about everything. So does the desirability and options list make up for the lack of the original drivetrain and lots of rust? For the right price, I have no doubt there are plenty of Mopar fans out there that would love to take on restoring it! The problem is, what’s the right price? Take a closer look at this Mopar here on eBay, where the seller is asking $19,500 and let me know what you think.
I think the seller is dreaming, but that’s just my opinion. I know demand for these is on the rise and that well optioned cars are in much greater demand, but when you can get a running and driving example with similar features for $30k or less, it’s hard to justify $20k for a car that has a non-original engine, no transmission and the wrong rear end. Add in all the rust issues and it just doesn’t add up for me. Of course, we all have different interests and for someone that’s been hunting for a Plum Crazy ’70 Charger R/T, the math might work out.
While it’s missing a lot, finding parts for these cars isn’t all that difficult. Dodge did a considerable amount of parts sharing, so finding a transmission, 3.54 Dana rear end or any other part really shouldn’t be a problem. And as a bonus, the seller is including a ton of spares they have already collected for it. They’ve already cleaned all the cobwebs and dust out of the inside and packed it full of parts, with room to spare for any of the bigger parts you’d like to have. It won’t be a small task to simply make this car a driver, making it look good too will be a big project, but it does have all the right options. Now if only the price was a little lower! The numbers might not add up for me, but how about you?
