Find Of The Day: Matching Numbers 1969 Dodge Charger R/T

The 1969 Dodge Charger always makes the saliva glands work overtime. The star of stage and screen ( have they ever been on stage other than an auction?) makes it one of the most iconic muscle cars.

This example is an R/T, numbers matching, has a great 440cu. engine and is in reasonable condition for its age.
It’s already at $34,500 with three days to go which is expected to go up, but everything seems to be here for an original classic.

It seems to be some amateurish restoration work was done in the past round the bottom of the panels, typical bubbly Bondo work which is a shame on a car with an original A33 Track Pak, but a classic like this is worth the work.
The rear quarters also have some rust, but with that Bondo work, this is the smallest of the exterior work needed.
It’s not to say the bodywork is in bad condition as it clearly looks good, it’s just how much work will be entailed after all the Bondo is stripped back.

The two tone seats may or may not be original, but the rest of the interior is in fine shape from the dash to the rear seats.

The engine and engine bay look in great shape, with no signs of deterioration. With only 9000 miles on the clock you would hope that this engine would only need a good service to give you peace of mind.

Everything on this car seems to check out and it’s a shame about the Bondo work, but the real question is what the final price will end up at.
All things considered, this is a rare 69 Dodge Charger R/T and needs to be brought back to factory condition to get another fully restored classic muscle car on the books.

An Unbelievable Snow plough 57 Chevrolet

By Mark Weisseg In parts of the west such as the Dakotas they are being hammered with blizzard type snows. Schools and stores are closed and the big dig out continues. When these events happen everyone that can man a shovel does so. Snow blowers, snow throwers and hard work gets the roads and driveways passable again. As bad as it is for some, there is a lot of money to be made plowing snow. When I saw this picture of a ’57 Chevy body on top of a four wheel drive truck I smiled. Hey, this old Chevy is plowing snow. Yes, what every sound American should do. Find a car that is world renowned and make a plow truck out of it. Forget taking the body and putting back on the real frame and making it a very pricey classic. That’s silly. This guy is a genius. Next, I hope he finds a rare 59 Caddy convertible and does the same thing…….. You see, every day another Einstein is born. Some Einsteins never find there calling. They land up being land Barron’s or stupid Doctors or lawyers. But other Ei

2016 Ford Mustang GT RHD Info. Graphic

As we mentioned in a previous article, the right hand drive version of the Mustang is now being sold on the Indian continent. The reasons for making a right-hand drive and hitting those markets of the world is obvious. So, to help see exactly what you get with this RHD model, the Max about website have made a cool info graphic for the car as you see below. RHD Mustang Info. Displacement – 4951 cc Maximum Power – 401 PS @ 6500 rpm Maximum Torque – 515 NM @ 4250 rpm Gearbox – 6-Speed Automatic Top Speed (KMPH) – 250 kmph Ground Clearance – 137 mm Boot Space – 383 litres Fuel Tank Capacity – 60.9 litres We wonder now if the other muscle car makers will follow suit and start producing vehicles in right-hand drive.

The Mustang Beats The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro sales

As we’ve reported recently, the 2016 Mustang is now selling across the globe in right-hand drive and introducing everybody to the muscle car world. This could have been a big gamble for Ford, but it seems to have paid off as sales for the 2016 Mustang are doing better than ever. However, Dodge and Chevrolet, especially the Mustang’s main rival, the Camaro, are staying on home territory and sales don’t seem to be anywhere near as good. Sales for the Chevrolet Camaro have dropped in the US by 42.3%, shifting 4969 units, a drop of 13.5% compared to this time last year. As the world grows to a more globally integrated arena, it makes sense to start pushing muscle cars in other territories. The Mustang, although traditionally should be left hand drive, is doing very well in Europe, Australia and recently India in the RHD format. they are familiar with the Ford brand, so the Mustang brings a bit of exotic presence to the rest of the Ford lineup. Chevrolet have a presence with their other veh
