Dodge Charger Collection: Homeless Mopars

Dodge Charger Collection

My wife and I are currently looking to purchase our first house, and one of our must-haves is a decent parking situation for my vehicles. Currently, they are scattered throughout our town in rented garages, and it can be a source of stress not being able to lay eyes on them daily. Of course, even worse than that is losing your storage situation entirely due to a structural failure, which is what befell a Mopar collector in Chicago – his collection of several 1968-1970 Dodge Chargers are available on craigslist after the barn they were stored in collapsed. The offering includes a 1968 R/T for $15,000; a 1968 383 for $16,000; and a 1970 440 for $20,000, among several others. The seller notes every car has some rust and that trades will not be accepted – and no Looky Lou’s are allowed, either! Despite the fact that this seller’s tale of woe is every enthusiast’s worst nightmare, which car would you buy to put safely into the garage? Thanks to Barn Finds reader Blake Stevens for this find!

    I hope they can be rescued and restored. There’s a LOT of work in each of those depicted, particularly given the price of entry the seller is asking. Compare to similar examples on eBay now.

    crack pipe pricing. You’d think he was selling Porsche 356s

    The prices are to high for these rust buckets. I love these cars, just not that much.
