    So Saturday I took a 45 Minute drive to buy a used Lazy boy recliner. While loading it on my truck I commented on all the cars he had. He said I have too many and also have some off site. I told him I had a couple of 68 Darts and he laughed and said he had one too. He has an original 68 GTS 340/4spd/B5 Blue. All stock But (ALWAYS A BUT) has a 73 340 motor and not the original. Said it was solid with minimal rust starting in the lower rear section of quarters in the rear. I asked if he would sell it and he said he would consider it and what would I offer. So I said I'd like to see some pics when he gets a chance. He's in no hurry and car is not on the market so I'm interested to see what he's got. He said he took the front fenders off because someone tried streching the wheel openings on them and it didn't look right. I'll post some pics when I do get them. My wife will divores me if I buy another one. Maybe I can get my son to buy it. lol

      Sounds awesome and I always love "creative buying/financing" to get a car to avoid the divorce. Divorces cost as much or more than restoring our Mopars, lol. Hope he comes through with some good pics of it, that'd be a good one to have. Good luck.

        Cool! I have a similar story. Went to buy some a body parts. Guys brother has a TA Challenger that's in pieces with 62k and a bunch of extra parts and an extra hood and TA engine. We talked and he's supposed to get me more pics and more importantly a price...

          I bought a 73 Dart Sport K frame and front suspension a month or so ago from a guy. He asked me if I was interested in a 68 Dart GTS! I turned around and there it sat! It was a 340 automatic but he put the four speed out of the Dart Sport in it, complete with the four speed console! I asked about the console, but he knew what it was worth. He had the original 340 with it and 727 but wanted like $7K for it. It needed floors, quarters, and trunk floor - pretty complete car though. He was putting a 1966 SS396 Chevelle together when I was there.

                I hear you. This was the 1st time for me. Real nice town and a real nice house(clean). I'm in a rental that came furnished currently and it matches the set and the previous recliner broke. If the house was a dive I would of reconsidered , you still don't know though. My worry is when my kids come home from college with their laundry and crap.
