1970 Plymouth Road Runner – $39,500

Are you looking for a rare project car that has had a majority of the hard work completed? Check out this 1970 Lime Green Road Runner that is extremely solid and has already had tens of thousands of dollars invested. This is a factory 383cid with manual 4-speed that came in the ever popular lime green color. The bucket seats have been freshly recovered with Legendary seat covers and the console has also been restored to new condition.

The car came with the Rally gauge package including a tic-toc-tach as well as power disk brakes and 3:23 rear-end with posi. The numbers matching motor and transmission were rebuilt, though the rebuild happened about 20 years ago and we would recommend a tear down to check everything before putting it back in the car. It has been stored and everything turns freely, but since its already out, it would be advisable to just double check. The car also includes a new power booster and master cylinder for the all new disk brake setup.

The front end has also been completely rebuilt and powder coated to the proper and correct color and a new clutch was a part of the work already completed. The front grill is original and complete and what we would call “mint!”. The car has very nice original front fenders, hood and doors. The quarter panels are also original, though they had been repaired back in the 1970s. We do have new AMD quarters and trunk pan available if desired. All of the glass is new ECS date coded glass and will finish off the car nicely. This is an original California car and has never been rusty and is ready for the next owner to complete and love.

$39,500

1970 Plymouth Road Runner – $55k

This is a very rare and desirable Road Runner that came from the factory with the Lime Green paint and a pistol grip 4-speed manual transmission. This car is in solid driving condition with the numbers matching 383cid and numbers matching 4-speed tranny. The repaint is about 20 years old but still looks good with a few dings and mars here and there. The body is solid, though one of the quarter panels was replaced during that repaint. The rest of the panels are original as is all of the interior which is still soft and comfortable. The carpert were replaced at some point in its life.

The car runs and drives well, though the bias-ply tires are not the best for cruising, and are not entirely correct for the car. The glass is in excellent condition and is very clear all the way around. The black vinyl top is also in excellent condition and was replaced at the time of repaint. The color combo with 4-speed and dust-trail stripe make this a very unique and desirable car that can be enjoyed on the road.

$55,000

1973 Plymouth Cuda 340 – $25k

This is a factory original 1973 Plymouth Cuda 340. It has been sitting since the early 1980’s and as such has only driven 91k original miles. The car includes the number matching motor and transmission, which in this case is an automatic. This car is 95% original. The motor will not run as it is froze up and needs a complete rebuild. There is also some rust in the trunk (see the pictures) and a small amount on the floor. Though the underside of the car is beautiful and the quarter panels are very nice. It is easy to see the condition of the body because the car still has the original paint on it.

The sunroof and the wheels were added around 1980 and look the part for a cool survivor hot rod. This is a real Cuda and they are becoming very scarce, especially survivor cars like this one. It is a good optioned car with everything still present and accounted for. You could put another drive train in it and go cruising as a survivor

This car will be sold whole, please no buyers only looking for parts.

$25,000

1970 Dodge Dart – $7900 (SOLD)

It is rare to come across these classics that are in their original condition, especially in good running condition like this one. This is a very original 1970 Dodge Dart Custom with the legendary slant-6 engine with only 100k original miles.

The car is running and driving and has a new vinyl top that really makes the car look a lot younger than it is! The car has good tires and this original California car has no rust anywhere and has the original classic California blue and yellow plates.

The paint and interior are original as is the glass which is in very good condition. This is a nice survivor car that can be driven and enjoyed now.

$7900 – SOLD

1974 Chevy Truck – $20,500

We have had a few classic trucks come to us recently and they are hot in the collector market right now. This 1974 Chevy Cheyenne Camper Special is very original with lots of original documentation to go with it.

The original owner added a Leer shell many years ago and it is still on the truck. The truck itself was ordered from Glendora California and we have all of the original paper work (see images below). This is a very solid two-owner truck with a straight rust free body that has spent its life in California.

The truck was ordered with A/C and cruise control and while the A/C switch is not working, it is an easy fix. These trucks are very hard to find in solid original condition like this one.

$20,500

1977 Ford F-150 – $10,500

There is no denying that 60s and 70s trucks and SUVs are very hot and here is a very solid and original Ford F-150

This 1977 F-150 is in original condition. It is an original 4×4 with 4-Speed manual transmission. At some point in its life it had a 3″ lift kit added. It still has the original 6 cylinder and the truck runs and drives well. We recently pulled it out of storage, where it was for 15 years, and got it back on the road. The tires are older, but they still get the job done. We have also checked out the 4×4 and it is working without issues.

The lights and gauges are all working and the glass is in good condition. This is a California truck and has a very solid body with no rust and comes with a clean title. The bed also has a liner which has helped preserve it very well.

$10,500

66 Rambler 770 Cross Country Wagon – $7500 (SOLD)

Well, you do not see these every day! This 1966 Rambler 700 Cross Country Wagon has been sitting in storage for many years before we found it and now offer it for sale. We literally just pulled it from storage and polished the paint…and look at it shine!

It did take some work to get the 232 cid 6 Cylinder running, but its now running, though the trans is a bit weak. It is an extremely solid California car and very original. It does need some upholstery work, but it is all there. There is a crack in the front windshield as well, but the glass for the most part is very good, as is the stainless and trim.

$7500 – SOLD

69 Plymouth GTX Convertible – $49k

What a rare find! This is a factory original GTX convertible that we found in California with a solid no rust California body. In fact, the exterior of this car still wears its original paint and the car has only 76k original miles! The interior of the car has been restored along with a new top. The gauges and lights are all operational and working well.

The 440cid motor is the numbers matching motor and has been rebuilt and running great. The carburetor is a new Edlebrock carb, but the original carb is included. The car still has the original starter and alternator as well. Unfortunately the automatic transmission is not the original trans but it has been rebuilt and working great. The front end has been completely rebuilt along with the steering box.

The rear end sports the original 3:23 ratio gears with posi-traction. The original jack and components are still in the trunk and all of the glass is original, even the front windshield which is in nice condition. The original AM/FM radio is in very good condition, but is not working, nor is the Heater and A/C controls as the plastic vacuum control is broken. Other than those items, everything else is working.

This is an excellent driving car and extremely original (Just look at the pictures!) Of course, there are some bumps and bruises but we wanted to leave it original so everyone could see the condition of the body. There were only 700 convertible GTXs built in 1969 and only 365 of them were automatics.

$49,000

1970 Plymouth Barracuda – $23,900 (SOLD)

This 1970 barracuda car has spent its entire life in California and still has the original blue California plates from 1970. It is a desert car and as a result it is very solid with no rust spots anywhere. The care does have new paint that is not a show paint job but more in line with driver quality.

The driver side quarter panel does has some bondo due to a side swipe from years ago. There are also a few other small spots here and there but there is nothing major. The floor and trunk pan are solid and clean with only light surface rust on bottom side.

The seat covers on the rear seat are original and very brittle. The front seat covers are also brittle and we would recommend that they be recovered. The dash pad has many cracks and either needs a cap, a cover or be replaced with a new one. The front grill is new and fits very nice. The glass on the car is all good and original. The bumpers are original and are very nice cores for a re-chrome or you can buy new ones.

This Barracuda was an original 6 cylinder car with 3-speed stick, but there is no drive train now so it is perfect and ready for an upgrade. We do have a motor available upon request and to make life even easier for you, there is also a V8 K-member that comes with the car and it is even already powder coated.

This is a very good builder car that you can build to your own taste.

$23,900 – SOLD
