What an amazing story, I truly hope that car never sees a restoration, that would tarnish it's history and value IMO, and I hope it stays in that family.
Me too. To truly keep a car that long and even on your death bed its one of the last things on your mind to pass down is amazing!
I watched that last night, cool vid!
This has made the rounds on every Mopar forum lately, there is a pretty healthy discussion going on over at FBBO. Most think the same way and most hope it remains in the family but there are a few who are advocating it get sold off to a "collector" who can protect and take care of it. Personally, I hope it stays with the family and they drive the crap out of.
Sweet video thanks for sharing. The idea of a collector buying it grosses me out, cars are made for driving not collecting dust.
LS Swap it.
Breathe people I'm kidding I love the car !
Now a 6.4 Hemi would be cool... LOL I have to admit that if I owned it, that would be tempting; remove all of the factory stuff and install a 6.4 with modern brakes and such a way that does not alter the car... But they say it runs really good as is so I would probably let it alone.
Very cool. Thanks for posting.
I called off the JDAM strike headed for your garage. JK.
Saw this a while ago. Hope it stays original and the family keeps it and it doesn't go to a collector like the one who had a Hemi mod top '70 cuda stolen out from under his nose, never to be heard from again.
Cool Video, The son knew nothing of cars until he got it. Now he's getting into it and feels his dad's presence in it. Plus the 3rd Generation son already is into it and knows someday it will be his. How would he feel as an adult knowing his dad sold out on a ledgedary car that could have been his ?
Wow! What a cool, well documented story! And a rare cool car to boot
Cool car for sure. Some things don’t add up, but the have to embellish the story somehow. Kim
This is a fabulous story...I hope they keep it. I remember living in Harrisburg PA in 1974-1981. There was a white Challenger and that is all I know about the car except it would come into the city and win a lot of light to light racing. The police would attempt to catch the guy and never did. They even put it in the paper looking for information as to who owned it.
Kimmer,^^^Agree. But it the way media works. If the son and grandson has the same feelings as the old man, that is definitely cool. But the right money may come along once the fame fades.Who Knows ?
My neighbor has a 72 340 Duster Orange/White interior that he is holding for his grandson who when he was 5 loved and told grandpa that's HIS car. The kid now a teen could care less. No, grandpa will not sell.
I was in High school, a guy had a 1968 b5 383 4spd. GTS. A real beater. He had a part time job after school. Every Friday he would buy oil and spark plugs and fill the tank. On hot summer nights in bed, I could hear him thrashing and pulling horror all over town. He would walk to school all week then repeat the process again on Friday. Police were looking for him too .
A great story. Our 73 Duster will be passed down to our son and some day to his son. Owning it for 47 years now, it will never leave the family.
And people get all gaga over the Bullitt Mustang. Pulp Fiction over reality. Rear view: No.4 – Bullitt, Shelby Mustangs sold for auction records
Nothing wrong with the Bullitt Mustang. Not too many vehicles set up like that from that era of movie making ever had the back story that it did and then NOT end up butchered and rebuilt with modern parts.
3 million dollar car for sure !
What a great story, thanks for posting.
You can have either car. But you can never sell it or transfer it. You only get to keep it as long as you live. And you cannot monetize it in any way. Which one will you take? Those are the rules.
