I am new to the group but no stranger to Mopars or A-Bodies. I have been looking for a higher quality A-Body for a few months.
I have not found anything that excites me yet.

Here is what I am looking for:
  • 68-72 Dart or GTS (convertible or coupe)
  • 70-72 Duster or Demon
  • 67-69 Barracuda (convertible or coupe)
  • Must have the original fender tag and be true to it - Day 2 mods ok, no color changes.
  • Body numbers must match VIN.
  • Acceptable engines 273, 318 or 340 (preferred). Numbers matching preferred but period correct same displacement engine/trans is ok.
  • Transmission 3 or 4 speed manual, or automatic.
  • Paint - nice quality, Black, Blues, Greens, White, Silver, FC7, FY3
  • Body - stripes and/or scoops a bonus, no visible rust, if restored... metalwork must be correct & not sculpted with filler. Quality restoration - no painted latches, no painted bumpers or non body color underhood or non-body color trunk paint.
  • Trunk - no rust through or soft spots in the floor or the spare tire well.
  • Underside - undercoat OK as long as the metal is solid.

I have looked at multiple cars since January, all have been disappointing mostly for the quantity of Bondo or rust in the bodies.

I am not looking for a project (I already have one), I am looking for a very nice driver quality car that I will drive regularly and show.

I am also not looking to steal a car - I am well in tune with the market value of these cars. I have money and do not need my wife's approval to pull the trigger.

I am in NJ but will travel anywhere in the US of hire an inspector to see the right car.

I appreciate your help finding my dream A-Body.

Thank you.
Joe P.
