Mopar Collection: Road Runners, Challengers, Darts And More!

Collectors often migrate to certain brands of vintage automobiles. For example, Ford Mustang people tend to go for specific years of like Mustangs, i.e. 1965-66, 1967-68, 1969-70, etc. This seller likes Chrysler cars, mostly Dodge Darts and Plymouth Valiants, but not exclusively. Several project cars ranging from 1968 to 1977 are being offered, but there are photographs of other automobiles that are not part of the list. This Mopar “Field of Dreams” is located in Brighton, Colorado and available here on craigslist. Interested parties will need to flag the car or cars they’re interested in and send the seller a message for more details and prices. Thanks, rex m, for being a sleuth on this one for us!

The seller doesn’t claim that any of these cars run and in fact says that many of them haven’t run in several years. So, they should all be treated as tow cars and delivery is possible (I suppose that depends on distance). Mother Nature has been kind to some of them, as rust isn’t necessarily a problem. In fact, a couple look as though you could start them up and drive away. A few look to be complete, while others have parts missing, including drivetrains. One even professes to be a Hemi edition Road Runner. So, for fans of certain Mopar products, this is almost heaven on earth. However, only one photo is provided per car, so you will have to rely on gut, instinct and imagination on what lies here.

Dodge Darts

’68 Dart: 2-door sedan finished in green and may be the nicest survivor of the bunch; we wouldn’t be surprised to see a Slant-Six under the hood

’69 Dart Swinger: the first year of the 2-door hardtop in the 1967-76 generation of Darts; we’re told it originally had a 340 V-8, but there is now a 318 in its place

’69 Dart Swinger: 2-door hardtop with an 8 ¾ rear end and disc brakes; no motor is evident

’72 Dart Swinger: 2-door hardtop that has baked considerably in the Sun and has a mismatched door

’75 Dart Sport: this car was called the Dodge Demon for 1971-72; this one is missing a motor and front bumper

Also, 1969-71 and 1974-76 Dart Swingers look to be there with no particulars given.

Plymouths

There looks to be a 1970-72 Duster coupe, 1973-74 Valiant sedan and a 1974-76 Valiant sedan, with no details given.

’68 Road Runner: this may be the winner in the bunch; it professes to be a Hemi that comes with a parts car; it looks pretty rough and we don’t know if the motor is actually still there

Other

’70 Challenger R/T SE: has both the desirable Road/Track and Special Edition options rolled into one; it looks as though the 383 and automatic that came with it could be gone, although that may just be the way it sits

’77 New Yorker: an oddity in this field of mostly Darts and Valiants. The seller says it’s got a 440 V-8 and would make a great demolition derby car!

So, there you have it. Anything here screaming out to you, “save me, save me”?

    No price means the seller is on a fishing expedition. In general, sellers know what they won’t take for a car, when an ad doesn’t list a price, they are playing games. They know what it would take to buy every one of these cars, they would put a price in the ad, if they are serious.

      Agree, it winds me up when I see this and walk away.
      The other classic .. “make me an offer“. They want me to buy and sell the car.
      Had that this week..

        “make me an offer” simply means they will counter with a higher number regardless of whether your offer was good or not………..

      I think you hit the nail on the head with this seller Steve R. Deep sea fishing for sure.

      This guy wants TOP dollar for all of these cars. The ’70 R/T Challenger has been for sale for well over a year maybe 2. At one time I think he had $10K asking price on that car. In the same area (NE of Denver) a driver just sold for that (it had a 440 swap, was beat but still a driver mind you)

    Some neat ‘finds” there. Would have to win the lottery and have a place to store them first.

    I want the 2 door sedan , it has the most potential, Better to stick with the white 63 , 2 door in an other ad. Everything here is a builder. At least they have not been on fire or under a building

    Yep – a heavy CL advertiser – he’s been pushing that Hemi Road Runner for years – if it was something it would have already sold – wonder if it has to do with pricing ?

    If that is in fact a Hemi Road Runner somebody is in big trouble for turning it into a demolition derby clone!

    I once knew a man who was a nutty car hoarder,

    He lived slightly out of town
    just near the city’s boarder,

    With 30 junk autos and a lotta disorder,
    until he was served a clean up order.

    There were Plymouths, Fords, Chevys and the like,

    He even had an antique trike,

    None of them ran, of course, and they were worth millions as the story goes…

    Then, one day his house burned down, so he moved to a new one that was painted dark brown,

    To celebrate the occasion, he bought
    Himself a ‘Vette, the best one could get.

    They buried him the following year.

    His kids sold the junk for pennies on the dollar.

    -P. Phil. (True story.)
