Update: This car has since been heavily damaged in an accident.
This car appears to be originally Panther Pink but does not have a fender tag or broadcast sheet. We have not inspected this car in person so please contact the seller for more information or to view the car in person.
This car is an original 383 big block car now equipped with a fresh 440. This is a solid West Texas car wearing about a 6 year old restoration. We do not have a fender tag for the car and I have not looked for a build sheet as I doubt it would be there. We bought this car pretty much as it is with exception of a few items which were addressed prior to listing it. The car wears a Corvette red and a white vinyl top with an R/T stripe. Interior is white with black carpet. Restoration looks to be good with exception of some of the common obvious mistakes that Mopar purists will recognize, such as the engine bay being painted black and the deck lid hinges being black as well. The car has a strong running 440 with headers wrapped in heat shield fiberglass material. It is a console shift automatic and the drive train feels very tight. Car sounds as good as it looks. It is an A/C car but all hoses are not present to charge and test if it all works. The compressor looks to be a newly installed reman piece. It also has power steering and power brakes.
This car had sat in storage for a few years so we addressed a few items prior to listing. We installed a new Mopar Performance fuel pump and water pump, had the radiator core replaced, replaced the drivers side header gasket and the intake gasket. We also had the front end aligned. The heater core is bypassed due to a leaking core that I don't have the time or patience to address. I am not a believer in the goop leak stopper but the winning bidder may love the stuff. If asked to rate the paint, I would call it about a 3 footer. If you get real close you can pick a few places were the painter got lazy and did not get fine enough with the prep work. You have to look for the mistakes to find them. It has a late model aftermarket CD player which does work with some Sony 4"s in the dash and 6x9's in the package tray.
Without a doubt this Charger is an eye catcher and has some serious appeal. I feel it would make someone a great cruiser or weekend toy. If you are looking for a perfect concourse restoration this is not the car and you will undoubtedy pay much more and we would be glad to build one for you if you are looking to spend that kind of money and time. We have driven the car only a little but see no reason why the car should not be able to be driven anywhere upon purchase. Please do not percieve that as a warranty as this is still a 35 year old car and all warranties expired many years ago. I am simply trying to offer my honest opinion of the car.
While checking out the car, I discovered that this looks to have been a FM3 Pink Charger. Pink is evident in the inner upper quarters, where the deck torsion bars are rubbed by the sliders, under the back seat where I eagerly looked for a build sheet, and under the factory undercoat. I have no documentation to prove it and no fender tag so what I see is what I say. Here is the complete vin just in case someone has the build sheet or fender tag and wants to give it up:)
The following pictures show the evidence that this car was originally Panther Pink.
