You won't be disappointed with this car and you can drive it anywhere. As we used to say SHOW AND GO. Take this to a show and win a prize (I have at both shows I've shown it at) or take it to the drag strip (I haven't done that). The car is in excellent condition, paint is fantastic, no rust, all gauges and lights work, original AM/FM radio does not work, Shipping is up to buyer however I will do what I can to help

My first encounter with Mopar was 1970. We were a young couple, fairly new to Santa Barbara, Ca and with 3 young kids but the "car bug" had already caught me but has never really caught Mary Sue, my wife of 47 years, One block from my insurance agency was a small Dodge Dealer. I went in and ordered a Plum Crazy, 383 Challenger and put $500 down with a 8 week wait until it arrived. I told my wife and she thought, and said, that I was crazy (maybe she meant Plum Crazy) and "suggested" that I cancel the order which I did. Later that year she went with me and I purchased a 1970 Road Runner 383 in green. Unfortunately I've always been very jaded about my cars and, since I was starting to do well in commercial insurance sales a Porsche caught my eye and next thing I knew I had a new 1972 Porsche 911 and I don't remember what happened to the Road Runner. My love of Porsche's continued until two years ago after having every model known and then some. In the meantime I've had every hotrod in existence over the years from low cost to a $100,000 blown '40 Willys. Back last summer I ordered a '32 Ford built for "us" thinking how fun it would be to drive to shows around the state since I've always trailored my high horsepower cars. Well, the first time I drove it 20 miles south I realized this was a BIG mistake and I would not enjoy driving anywhere. An acquaintance of mine from southern California heard that I was unhappy with the coupe and wondered if I would be interested in a trade plus money. When I found out that it was a Super Bee I was IN. My friend who enjoys buying and selling cars had only owned this one since February and it appears to have had a very nice restoration including a switch out of the original 383 and the addition of a 440 motor. It appears from a small eBay ad I found in the paperwork, that my friend got this from eBay. I have now installed a new 6 pack system from Atlantic Speed Warehouse and this car is now very scary to drive. I've never driven anything with this much, just plain raw power. The car has the "rare hidden headlight option" which I assume is a good thing. John Bobar, who I want to thank for this fabulous web site, has told me his research shows that this was originally ordered for Canada export and was Orange with a White Vinyl top. The strange thing is this car has had to have gone through a total rotisserie process because the Yellow color is everywhere including under the dash etc. and I can't find ANY sign of orange anywhere.

I plan to, maybe for the first time, keep this car and drive it. I've found a set of original '71 bucket seats and have ordered new upholstery from Legends which should bring this back to "original". I look forward to meeting some of you either in person or through email. My other hobby is collecting gas station memorabilia and I have a collection of about 250 early signs and 10 old gas pumps.
