I bought the car from a friend and Mopar buddy of mine in Modesto, California in 2003. He had had found the car in a storage yard in Oakland California and owned the car for 5 years or so prior. When he got it, it was a very used and abused Mopar. It still had the faded original gold paint and Decals. The driver quarter panel was damaged along with both valance panels, which were trashed. The front seats were missing most of the foam, showing much of the frame. The interior was missing some parts and seat belts, carpet, and headliner were not in good shape. The original motor was gone, but it did have a running 68 HP 383 in it. The original 4 speed, shifter, and rear end were all still there. Overall, the car was still rust free and a real Superbee. After my friend bought it, he decided to paint the car curious yellow. He did some clean up as well. By the time I bought the car, it didn't look bad, but still needed quite a bit to make it a daily driver. I did quite a bit more such as new exhaust, wiring repair, transmission rebuild, brakes, suspension parts, and tune up. I added front and rear spoilers and machine gun tips. The car was looking pretty good again by that time and ran well. The yellow car pictures show that. I asked my friend if he had any photos from when he found the car, but he did not have any. The car remained yellow until 2016 when I was finally able to restore the.car back to it's original state. The restoration was finished summer of 2020.
