Blue '71 Mach 1: Nice... but yeah, maybe a bit overpriced - not too unreasonably so, though.

Cougar project: Could be fun! If it runs, seems fair to me.

'73 Mach 1: I have a problem with: "Special Note: Data plate shows this real Mach 1 to be born just as you see it, colors & options." Really?! So, a '73 Mach 1 was born at the factory with '71-'72 stripes & emblems, an aftermarket center console, missing its Ram Air, with the trunk spoiler mounted way too high on the trunk lid? Yeah... OK. They messed up the TuTone when they repainted it as well. Whack about $10K off the asking price and start negotiating from there.

General Lee: I'm no expert, but this is not "one of the nicest ones left in existence." It's not an 'official' General Lee - it's someone's interpretation (and failure) to duplicate the real deal. The letters of "GENERAL LEE" are not spaced properly, there is no push bar, wrong steering wheel, modern stereo, and the original cars were front bench seat equipped with a roll bar inside. Not "authentic" by any means... but still a bad-ass car. thumb The signatures are cool (if they're valid - I'd have them checked & verified), but it's not worth anything close to $110K, IMHO. Not a penny over $40K, if you ask me, just because of the autographs and the fact that nice Chargers are getting harder to find.

Thanks for sharing! thumb

Not bashing anybody's set-up... HEI just looks out of place on a Ford. Kinda like doing an LS swap into a Shelby - SACRILEGE!! rofl

Today, I stopped by the used car dealership to examine the third item listed above (don't bother trying to click the link, as it no longer exists). A buddy said he sees it all the time, but I pass by the lot every day and never have seen it. OK...go in, ask about it, and it is in a garage structure to keep the local kids from trying to joy-ride it. First impressions: bubbles under the paint on the hood, along the hood edge, and rust underneath paint in the usual places. Seems like a quick paint job to me, not done particularly well. Interior looks OK, as does the engine compartment (302). They try and start it; it cranks well, but they think it is out of gas. Look in the trunk, pull the mat up, and black undercoating everywhere. Do a quick look under the chassis and same thing: black undercoating everywhere. All this raises my warning alarms, but hey! I wan't about to buy it. I asked what they wanted for it: $19k. Okay...probably a $10k car at best. Oh well.

So it's been on the lot for a good 11 months...it's the only classic in their inventory. I will say, though, that the saleswomen were very low key and not pushy at all, and answered all of our questions promptly without dissembling. At least, that was refreshing.
