    Hello all, I'm wondering if anyone has seen this or might know were it is?
    I traded it to a person in 1980 for thier 73 Challenger Rallye. the new owner was going to BYU in Utah and I did see it once in Pleasanton Calif around 1984 but was on foot at work when it drove by.
    Thanks for looking and any help locating it would be appreciated.

    Last Calif plate was "EL DEMON"
    Vin#LM29H1E112870
    FJ6 (Green Go)
    Bucket seats (black w/silver inserts)
    Tuff wheel
    Rallye dash
    Consul/auto
    A/C
    P/S
    Power Disc brakes
    3.91 Sure Grip
    Non-# matching engine (340 CID)

      Nice car !! Try moparts and put that pic on 70's street machine on Facebook. Someone posted a pic of my demon on there and I will be meeting the one of the old owners this spring.

          So the most helpful info here is to tell us anything that isn't stock about the car.

          No offense but to a non- demon- centric person like me, That looks like every other green demon out there.

          Have you tried tracking it down through the VIN? Last year I saw this T/A Challenger at a car show and it belonged to the owner's dad in the 80's and was sold off. He tracked it down in Japan (I believe) and got it back 30 years after his dad owned it. I think it had a non #'s engine in it but now the original engine is back in it. So it's possible to find cars that are long gone... best of luck to you. I love Demons!

            Believe it or not, I didn't have the Vin number until last night when I found it in some paperwork.
            Thanks

            Sold the Challenger after 6 months and built a 440 Duster.

              No offense taken, I check every Green Go Demon to see if it is my old one. Years back with no web I'd say it'll never happen, with the web and Mopar forums it's worth a shot.

              Traction bars were removed and Sox & Martin pinion snubber was added.

              There was a repair made on the hood when I lost a Flex fan at 100+ mph, repair should still be noticable.

              Exterior was stock with no mods unless the car is running a set of M&H Slicks that went with the car.

              I replaced the engine with a more street friendly engine, Purple shaft cam, Thermoquad, Headers, HD trans with B&M parts.


              I believe I read that only 4% of Demon 340's were Green Go, about 400 Demons were painted this color. Add the Black vynal roof and the number gets smaller, this was also a A/C car which lowers the numbers that were produced.

                    Hello all, Bringing this back up and after all these years of searching it's a big zero.
                    Additional info: Passenger door striker was repaired by brazing, console would have holes on top were a B&M shifter was mounted and front fender was cut to clear tires.
                    Calif DMV was no help.

                    As always Thanks for looking.

                      " It has the neatest most baddest 340 on the face of the earf in it..." OR the original poster left a bag of weed in the console back in 1979...:)

                        I must start with "best of luck" before I tell my story. I had a 1973 Gremlin LevisX 304. It was our first car when we got married. young wife took her 1st license test in it. Several years after I had traded it for a formula 400 Firebird with the TransAm bird on the hood, a few others including a 70 SS Elcamino, I got a notion that I wanted that Gremlin back. When I found it... Heartbreak. I may as well have dug up my grandpa. It was trashed. Nothing like what I let go of. copy/paste "best of luck"

                            I had recovered the seats with help from a friend with upholstery shop and we used Wrangler denim. Regardless, It looked awful when I found the car again. I walked up into the driveway, looked in and around the car, the resident came out the door and asked, "What can I do for you?" My reply was "Nevermind".

                              Been there with a 66 Barracuda, 413/727 straight axle and ford 9'', 2nd gear would turn you sideways if you weren't paying attention as the new owner found out. Found it a few years later and it was tore up and they had taken the hood scoop off and the engine filled up with rain water, ruined the carbs on the Tunnel ram and engine owner was was going to fix it someday.....year later I heard they scrapped it.

                                A guy I know had one in the late 90s, Same levis interior but of course weathered and aged. he had a roof rack on it, did roofing for a living...of course it was a 15 foot ladder nothing crazy. At the time it was a cheap car to him a POS AMC,same could be said about my 70 dart really, I remember when no one cared about A Body Mopars they were throwaways...
