Wow! Nice beater! Sadly, these werethe last of the quality Chryslers. By '73 or '74, the build quality was so badthat the company took out full-pageads to reassure buyers that Chrysler Corp. was doing its best to fix a wholehost of problems that beset these carsduring that time. As for this one, I'llbet she's packin' a 383 V-8 backed by a 727 tranny. Now this this is some-thing that I would run out and buy! Ithink my wife would approve.
I don't think you Oregonains know how spoiled you are to be able to see things like this still on the road. Where I am in NH, these would have turned to rusty powder years ago
We who grew up in Illinois can certainly empathize with you man! We had the same problem in the Midwest. The stuff they poured on the roads back then would rust an oak tree! Unfortunately for Chrysler, rust-out was the car's achilles heal. Being a unibody car didn't help either. Rust began in the body seams and worked its way out.Many's the time I'd pull parts off of cars in the wrecking yard that were rusted in half. That's how I kept my '63 Plymouth wagon running so long! Sad thing was that the donor cars all had less than 50K miles on them! The engine and tranny I put in mywagon had 41K on them. You folks are indeed lucky in Oregon to have that rolling museum on the streets out there. If I could afford to live there, I'd come join you!
Mmmmm...fuselage goodness. Love these yachts.
Hey, this was when I had just started using my D70, but it was newly purchased so I didn't know how to use it aside from auto-everything.
Ha! I saw this car parked almost in the same place a few weeks ago...across from the Starbucks in St. Johns and it still looks the same!
