It's already going to a new owner, after I'm dead. I'll never sell, got it for $1650 about 15 years ago. Only had a few old rides then. Bought more and kept this in the backyard, then a barn, then down to the storage unit it still sits in today. I am done buying projects, really, I sweat it this time! I have my unicorn four speed C body (Canadian Monaco) that needs everything, my Dart that was my first old Mopar, my first C body Polara, the Polara 500 that was supposed to replace the Polara, and two Monaco 500's. The second one was going to be a parts car for the four speed, but it's much nicer than the twin in storage with the truck, so it's going in the road and the twin will become the parts car. And I just got a 71 Monaco wagon. I think I'm good. I hope and pray I'm good, I'm out of space for the fleet.Absolutley...knock that off and get this baby on the road I bet if you tried to sell it , it would go really quick ! Super cool crew cab. If I was close, I would be trying to buy it
My stepson and his wife asked for the Polara and Polara 500, and my friend asked for the four speed, and the wagon, I told him he's getting the truck too. Not sure who's getting the dart or the Monaco 500, but I'll find them a home before I'm gone.
The stepson should have bought the Polara after we brought home the 500, I still love that car and really don't want to sell it. That 500 is a California car that ended up in southern Oregon, my friend in Eagle Point paid for it and kept it for a week so I didn't lose out on the car, seller was very reluctant to let it go.
Four speed came out of Canada, at the edge of the west coast where I picked it up, then got hit 2 hours later, that sucked, but that's how I ended up with the second Monaco 500.
I got the wagon out of Idaho in April, and got two dogs with the car, couldn't let them go to a shelter.
I had to go to where the cars were, and I'd do it again, but only for a finished car, projects take too long!
I have land I plan on building a shop on, but not sure it will be as large as I planned, prices have skyrocketed. But I have no kids, just the dogs, so I have disposable income, and a ten year plan. Now I'm off to work on some cars, and sort out my mess of parts.
