Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2) based on 496 votes

Up for sale/auction is my 1969 Dodge Charger. The car looks and runs great. and never fails to get a compliment. Between what I paid for the car and put into it. I have between $28. 00 and $30. 00 into the car. but I rarely drive it so I figure why not let someone else get some enjoyment out of the car. My reserve is well below $28. 00.

 

The car came to me form Texas. and seems like it spent most of its life there (or close by). I live in New England and have never driven the car in the snow. or in the messy salt/sand that follows a snow storm up here. It's rarely even seen rain since I bought it. When I'm not driving it. it's garage kept.

 

Car is solid and makes a great weekend cruiser. or a great candidate for a full restoration or resto-mod.

 

I believe the below covers everything. but feel free to reach out with questions. If you prefer a phone conversation. include your # and best time to call.

 

Here's a kind of “virtual walk-around” to go along with the pics: http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=_10XL3Gb8D8&feature=youtu. be

 

 

 

Engine/Transmission

·         engine was rebuilt was about a year ago

·         block was bored . 040 over

·         new over-size pistons & rings

·         has a performance cam installed (not sure of the specs on the cam – lift/duration. etc. )

·         heads were redone with new valve seats and larger valves to go along with the cam

·         nothing has been done with the tranny since I've owned the car. it shifts fine but I believe it may have a mild shift kit installed

·         aftermarket coolant overflow tank installed

o    you can hear it running here: http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=DQseTVXRV2M&feature=youtu. be

o    sounds decent on the video. but much better in person

 

Tires/Wheels/Brakes

·         Wilwood front disc conversion was done before I got the car

·         Wilwood disc brake conversion done on the rear

·         new rear axles. bearings & seals

·         new master cylinder & vacuum booster

·         adjustable proportioning valve installed

·         all new brake lines (from Year One)

·         electronic vacuum pump (for brake booster)

o    Because the cam is kind of aggressive. the engine makes lower than normal vacuum. This pump was installed so that the brake booster will work like it should.  

o    See details here: http://www. jegs. com/i/Comp+Cams/249/5500/10002/-1

o    The switch to power the pump is shown mounted where the radio would be on the dash. It's easy to reach there. and the car didn't have a radio when I got it.

·         Tires measure 17 x 9 on the front & 17 x 10 on the rear and have plenty of tread (see pic with penny)

 

Body/Paint

·         solid & very straight

·         no rot that I'm aware of

·         paint has a few chips & scratches but there's no dents or dings

·         noticed a few bubbles on the roof between the rear driver side window and the back window

·         reproduction trunk mat (Year One) in the trunk

 

Interior

·         appears to be stock. with a new carpet

·         “Charger” floor mats

·         Power seats

·         Tic-Toc-Tac works and seems to keep accurate time

 

 

 

 

A couple things to note:

There does seem to be a slight coolant leak. I believe it's from the exhaust manifold bolts and they likely just need to be resealed. Dodge designed it so that the exhaust manifold bolts seal the coolant passage in the heads for some reason. The car stops fine. but the brake pedal feels a bit spongy at times. Not sure if there's still a little air in the system. or if that's the way the pedal feels when using the external vacuum pump (first car I've driven with one). The pump could be removed. but I believe you would need to change the cam to a milder one to use the brake booster or switch over to manual brakes. The parking brake cable needs to be connected to the rear calipers (will probably need to be modified as it was made for the drum brakes)Will need a new speedo cable installed. I have it. it just needs to be put in. Gas gauge is a little off. When I filled it up. it stopped at ¾ tank. Not sure if it's always off by ¼ tank or not. but I try not to let it get below ¼ tank just to be on the safe side. The only thing not new in the brake system is the splitter block that mounts on the rear differential. I have this as well and will send it with the car too. I did take out a loan to buy the car. and own a small amount on it. I do have the title in hand and can transfer ownership once payment clears. I will pay the balance I owe within 48 hours of the car being received by the new owner (either picked up by in-person. or dropped off to by a delivery service).

 

 

 Payment

 

$250. 00 deposit due within 48 hours. Balance due within 14 days of auction close. If you need to get a loan. borrow money. etc. . please do that BEFORE placing a bid. I don't want to hear form the winning bidder that they think they can get the money or they can probably get the money.

 

Deposit due via paypal. Balance due via cashier's check or bank check. If picking up in person. it's cash only.

 

Check payment must clear before I'll release the vehicle.

 

 

 

Shipping/Delivery/Pick Up

 

Car must be picked up within 21 days of auction close. I can try and help find a delivery service. but buyer is responsible for the costs. Pick up in person is free. but I will be taking the plate off the car once it's sold.

On Jun-30-13 at 12:21:51 PDT. seller added the following information:

I spoke to a friend of mine who is more familiar with Mopars.  Based on what he said. the best option to fix the slight coolant leak would be to replace the exhaust manifold bolts with new ARP bolts and use their sealer.

I also found a few of the receipts for the brake parts & work done to the engine. I'll include those with the car as well. and any others I might find in the mean time.
