Pigeon Coupe: Mopar Barn Finds

1970 Dodge Challenger RT

When I initially saw the pigeon guano covered 1970 Dodge Challenger that Jim S sent in, I was going to feature just it, but then I noticed the other Mopar in the background and discovered that the seller has an entire collection of feces covered Mopars up for grabs! My personal favorite is the Challenger R/T, here on eBay, with its Sublime Green paint. The other Challenger can be found here on eBay and also have a nice Gold Duster, a Suvoy, plus I see several other cars that haven’t been listed yet. Thankfully not all of the cars are covered in the nasty stuff, but it would appear this barn has a serious bird issue. Its hard to say what kind of damage it may have caused to the paint jobs of the uncovered cars, but hopefully nothing too serious. So which of these feces covered Mopars would you park in your garage? That is after a good cleaning of course! Special thanks to Jim S for this tip!

    I’d take the duster. Drove one that I put a 360 in for over 5 years. It should go for about 3500 I think.

    Not an original R/T if it had a 318 to begin with, Thats like saying this is an original ’68 Z/28 currently with a 454 but originally a 283 car… Some combos just were not available…(ie ’67-’69 Z/28 with anything other than a 302, Mopar made no R/T’s with 318s…

    i failed to check what else the seller had listed and missed the gold duster with a slant 6, manual transmission, and A/C that does not work. the duster might make a nice daily driver but it/they are in NY state so rust may be a issue. i hope the reserve is not too high. i am very glad i do not have to work in that barn!

      The only reason why these cars exist is because they are from somewhere else. I grew up in Batavia (where the cars are), and in the summer of ’74 I called every junkyard in the Yellow Pages from Rochester to Buffalo looking for a pair of rust free front fenders for my then 7 year old ’67 Coronet 440. I found only three, and bought them all (still have a right front).

    “I drove it in the barn 15 years ago” He did the car no favors. I’ll never understand letting stuff go like this.

    I was in Austin,Tx at college in 1977 and bought a 1968 Road Runner that was that metallic olive green. As long as you kept polish on it, it was a beautiful car. Really fast 383 automatic until I blew the motor racing my wife in her 1969 Road Runner convertible!

    I have a 69 Fury retired police car with a monster 440 in 1975. The car weighed a ton because of the reinforced doors and fenders. I had been watching this 69 Road Runner convertible sitting in the back of this house on my way to work. I finally stopped and talked to the owner who explained that he blew the motor racing about 6 months earlier. The body was perfect with only the back window zipper needing replacing. He described that when he shifted from second to third the motor backfired and just died. I explained I had a 440 to replace the 383 and he sold it to me for $400.00, towed it home, replaced the timing chain and gear, cranked it up and drove it back to his house to pick up the title. That 383 smoked everything it came up against for the next 6 years until my wife wanted a family car when our first son was born. I went back to the dealership where I traded to buy it back two days later and he told me he sold it the day before and the new owner lost control of it 2 hours after he bought it, hit a tree and totalled it. What that would be worth today!

    I know they’re called “homing pigeons”…

    But…well trained “Reese’s Feces” crap dispensers that only hit the cars…

    Thanks for not pooping on the floor!


    Why do people think that shit sells…

    I’ll never get it!

    Just show the numbers matching fender tag and vin number. With the vin mumber stamped in the sheet matal several places on the car, that will prove the car’s pedigree. If he has a true R/T that will end the debate.

    The smallest engine offered in an R/T was a 383…with of course the 440 and Hemi were optional…
