    Just picked up a 70 Dart, factory FC7, 6cyl with AC. No motor. New AMD quarters that are almost finished being installed, mini tubbed with an 8 3/4. New AMD fenders. Zero chassis rust except for front floors. $1500. Good deal or not?

        Oh hell yeah!

        Almost makes me wish I still lived on the island so I could come up and double the offer so I can take it home.

        LMAO! Nice score. Even more so for the island!

              Yea that’ll be a nice ride for sure. I kind of regret selling mine. I also had a ‘70 in medium blue. (Actual code I don’t know.)

              @BergmanAutoCraft Bobby Craven bought it from me.
              I hope he is doing well. We got along very well.

                Is it something you want? The best deal never works out in the end if it's for something you don't want. On the other hand, if this is something you want it should be in your garage.

                  Nice get Peter. If I recall, you had a gold one you got from someone in the city? I remember you telling me you were planning on building it up Brooklyn street race style?

                  BTW, I've been off that stupid Island myself for almost 5 years now. Don't miss it! Guess you moved the shop down there? Have to say must be a bit of culture shock...

                  $1500 would get you the rear end and not much more around here- looks like an awesome deal! :thumbsup:

                    I had a gold 72 in the shop I built for a customer in Brooklyn. Mine is a purple 71 I've had since 1985.

                    Depends on the rear end…..

                    I know Greg is very happy being off the Island!
                    Now you just gotta retire out of Ct.!

                    How are you liking it so far Pete? I have family on the coast. Always a nice trip to see them. Nice country and people. Accents on the west side are thick! But super pleasant they are.

                          in all my years I have never heard of an FC7 6 cylinder car this is a first. I'm not saying it isn't authentic I'm saying I've never heard of or seen one. Id research how many of then were built.

                          You paid for the AMD sheetmetal, the car was free. Good deal.

                            That sounds to good to be true. Did you get a title with it that matches the numbers on the car? If so then that was one hell of a deal for sure!
