Hey Folks,

Spotted this one and had to post it up.

Is it just me, or does something seem not quite right here?Undecided

Seems like the real deal at first glance to me. What are you thinking is not right with it?

Same thoughts here, Kit.

Price may be quite high, but this car seems to be the real deal.

Looks like the real deal. Only problem I have is its been sitting around for over 40 years now. I get the survivor thing, but I think our cars should be driven. Thanks for posting Greg.

Hi Kit,

What do you think of the hood black out? Does the shape of it, and the fact that the black contour lines are not very straight mean anything in terms of being original? Also, the fit and alignment of the hood seems not original, or was this a typical example for being original in it's day?

It might sell for 25K...to someone who really wants it. The crazed buying frenzy for anything resembling a muscle car reached its peak 10-15 years ago. That was the time to sell. Today, it is usually only the rarest or most-desirable models that get the big bucks.
This is a beautiful car, no doubt.

But it is not particularly rare or extra-desirable. Kind of a run-of-the- mill model actually. 73 just didn't offer any of the options that bring the money.
Down on compression and power, no ram-air for the CJ motor, nothing bigger than a 3.50 gear, only 14" wheels available...

71 had the BOSS, 72 had the HO...both very-nicely equipped performance packages. 73? Nothing even close...

I thought the twist hood pins were only available if it had the ram air option?

I was thinking the same thing. It is a nice car though but every seal and piece of rubber on the car has to be brittle and dried up by now, especially since it hasn't been driven.

Yep if it was a 71 Boss, it wouldn't last a day at 50K.
