Barn Yard 1973 Dodge Challenger

barn-yard-1973-challenger

This Challenger project gets an honorable mention, not because it’s a bargain, but because of what is in the photo. Many people try to stage their cars as “barn finds”, but this guy didn’t even have to try. The goats wandering around the Dodge clearly qualify this one as a barn yard find. Thanks goes to reader Mark H. who found the car on Spokane’s craigslist and pointed out the little tin nibblers. The $5,500 asking price might be a little steep, but that does include a 440. Too bad these only came with the 318 or 340 in ’73, but still…

Sublime Survivor: 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T

surivor-1970-dodge-challenger-383

After Ford introduced the Mustang in 1964, the other American manufactures scrambled to respond with their own versions of the Pony car. For Chevrolet, it came as the Camaro. For the Chrysler Group, their response came much later with the introduction of Challenger in 1970. The Challenger was really a different kind of Animal, but it held its own against most Pony cars. This 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T is a survivor with its original 383 V8. It has been garaged, cared for, and documented its entire life and is ready to be driven and enjoyed. Find it here on eBay.

Only serious Mopar fans need apply. This is a 1969 Dodge Coronet R/T and it’s going to need a complete restoration. We feel the end result will be well worth the effort though, as this car is equipped with a big 440 and a four-speed transmission. We are talking about some serious fun here. Unfortunately, the car resides in Florida so there is rust. Take a look at the eBay auction here where bidding is currently at $1,725. Read more »

Even with high fuel prices, trucks are still some of the best-selling vehicles here in the States. We love our trucks here in America and the only thing that makes a truck better is to make it more powerful, faster, and louder. High performance trucks have been around for a while. When Dodge introduced the Li’l Red Express in 1978, it was the fastest American production vehicle built that year. The seller of this 1979 Li’l Red Truck claims it’s a survivor. Check it out for yourself here on eBay, where it is being offered with a BIN of $15,000. Read more »

American Pride: 1937 Ingalls Special

1937-Ingalls-Special-rear

We know, we know, it is not a barn find! We think you need to take a look at this though. Ed Ingalls, the creator of this little hot rod, wanted to go racing in the late forties, but he wanted to drive something from home. American manufactures were not yet producing sports cars, so he had little choice than to build his own. He scoured local junkyards and constructed what became known as the 1937 Ingalls Special.

The photos of this 1969 Coronet R/T may have caught our attention, but the 426 Hemi option piqued our interest. That engine could put out an amazing 425 horses! The seller claims that it only has 55k miles on the clock and that it’s numbers matching. There isn’t much rust either, but something just doesn’t seem right. The car is located in New York and it’s listed for sale here on eBay. Read more »
