Everyone dreams of this story.   I received an email about this car through my website www. moparmontana. com in July of this year.   The email was about a one-owner Phoenix-based numbers matching 383 Magnum 4 speed Charger with factory A/C that might be available for sale.   In August. I was able to obtain the car from the widow of the ORIGINAL owner.

This is an exceptional example of a well maintained car that the one owner took extraordinary pride in.   It is not exactly a "survivor". yet is not "restored".   It is simply a extremely nice car that the one-owner treated with love and respect for the past forty-five years.   The trunk had two boxes of receipts for every single part. belt. hose. filter. u joint. and tire for the past four decades.   It was his pride and joy. which is why the wife took 25 years to resell it after he passed.

 It was resprayed to a very high level in the late '80s and still presents very well.  I assume that the bumble bee stripe was added at that time.   It still has a high gloss and is perfectly straight.   The chrome and bright work are perfect with exception of a ding in the drip rail trim over the driver door (see photo).   The interior is perfect.   The vinyl top is perfect.   The glass is perfect.   Everything works except A/C which needs a charge.   Being from Phoenix for most of it's life. there is no rust.   The gaps are perfect.   The chrome is perfect.   The interior trim is perfect except for a few minor cracks in the plastic around the radio bezel.   No cracks in the wheel. dash pad. seats. etc.

I did not detail. or even wash the car for these photos.   All I have done since I purchased it is brakes. tune up. lube. and all fluids.   As far is I know it was last washed 25 years ago. and has been under cover ever since.   It was on jack stands. under a car cover. when I went to pick it up at a condo in Phoenix.   After recommissioning it. I have put less than 400 miles on it.

Weaknesses ~

*sagging rear leaf springs

*sticky Hurst 4 speed shift mechanism

*minor front suspension wear

*factory 3. 55 sure grip does not make for the best highway cruiser

Strengths ~

*Completely original and well maintained unmolested car

*383 Magnum professionally rebuilt in the 80's

*Laser straight. rust-free perfectly-maintained. one-owner car

*Big block. 4 speed. factory A/C with a 3. 55 sure grip?  Too cool.

 

Options~

*AM/FM radio

*Air conditioning
