HELLO BLUMO FRIENDS!!
It has been months since I've been on the site, but it feels good to re-connect with everyone.
Recently, ARNEWOOD visited my home to obtain the remaining tan interior parts from my dismantled Blumo for his car. Arne, I look forward to seeing your car when it is done.
I have some remaining parts that need to go. Some are in my sister's storage unit and she has had a falling out of sorts with the family. I want to clear them out before she has a chance to scrap them (hood, doors, trunk lid, front bumper). I also have some miscellaneous parts that I'd like to clear out. The more I can clear out in one shot, the better.
I'll be posting pictures later on today once I download a few to the laptop. Being that this is my first time on in months, I read that spanks79 was interested in if I was parting out the doors? Unfortunately, with them being in a family member's storage box, I don't have that luxury - they have to go wholesale.
Here is what I have so far (remember, pics coming tonight) and ALL parts are off of my 1976 Dodge Monaco base sedan unless otherwise stated:
1. COMPLETE set of (4) 1974 Monaco Hubcaps 2. (1) Coolant water bottle 3. (1) Charcoal Canister 4. COMPLETE wiper system (motor, transmission, arms, blades, wiper fluid bottle) 5. Set of (2) plastic firewall leaf grates 6. Dash instrument cluster with 100 MPH speedo & headlight / wiper switches - 69,000 original miles showing 7. Set of (3) radiator support brackets 8. (1) Radiator support brace 9. COMPLETE lower metal dash with glovebox & ash trays 10. COMPLETE set of (2) 1974 Monaco Tail Lights with wiring harness and extra tail light housing/trim without lens 11. (1) 1976 AM only radio 12. (1) 1976 Dodge Grille with (4) trim pieces 13. (2) 1976 Turn Signal housings with lens set - complete 14. (2) 1976 Headlight set - complete 15. (1) Hood in good condition (minimal rust) - complete with hinges 16. (1) Trunk Lid in good condition (minimal rust) 17. (4) Doors - complete with interior mechanics intact, windows and hinges (interior door panels already sold to ARNEWOOD) 18. (1) Rear Lower Seat in factory tan material with small tear 19. (13) Assorted exterior chrome trim pieces (complete rear window set, side gutters, front lower and upper trim and a few others) 20. (1) Unity S6 Spotlight (unknown if works - never installed) 21. (1) 1976 Front Bumper assembly
I have a few other miscellaneous items as well, including a set of hubcaps from a 1980 Newport (only 3 match). These items have all been kept away from moisture since being removed from my car nearly 2 years ago - far too long for me. ARNEWOOD has seen them within the last 14 days. I tried to get him to take everything since he had a big van, but he said no. Even if you may not be able to use something, but think someone else might, please take it and share it with the hobby. I don't want anything to be lost to scrap if at all possible.
I haven't listed prices - some who have read my past postings know I am only out to help the hobby. I'll try to do the best I can on shipping, but I suggest pickup for the big items (hood, doors, etc...) if possible.
Here is my e-mail for my personal contact info as I know members get a little worried when you post addresses and phone numbers: firstname.lastname@example.org. ARNEWOOD, and I think a few others here have my info and he has my permission to share it. I can text pictures of a specific part if I haven't gotten them on here yet.
Folks, it is good to see how everyone's cars look and though I honestly miss my Dodge, I enjoyed it immensely during the 10 years we were together. Someday I'll own another one. Until then, I'm looking forward to seeing all of your cars in Aurora, Illinois this fall. KEN DUNN (1991 Ford CHP PD car) and myself talked recently and I WILL be attending CEVS with his car. We made the Woodward Dream Cruise in Michigan last year where I met a couple of you - I loved it! I can't wait to meet everyone else from the hobby and ask all of you to try as hard as possible to attend CEVS.

Thanks for the kind words sigmfsk. Definitely looking forward to seeing the best collection of Blumos in the world at CEVS.
Even if you folks don't need the parts but think someone else might, grab them. It is first come, first serve and I do have a PAYPAL account to protect your payments. Should you use that method, all funds will be held until you are satisfied. There is a UPS Store a few minutes from my house (Center Township, Pennsylvania, United States). Large, Long or Bulky items could be expensive to ship to your Zip Code. Please take this into consideration.

Almost forgot these pictures. The doors do have some rust on the bottom but all the internals, windows, etc... are all in good condition. Glass is hard to come by - buy the door for the cost of the glass. I'm that fair. Door hinges and interior window crank handles are at my house and included with these items.

It will be awesome to finally make it out after 3 years of hoping. Ken and I plan to attend unless Chicago gets invaded by 50,000 cops, military, horses, helicopters, tanks and other apparatus - we might reconsider then. Outside of that - all systems GO! _____________________________________________________________________________ So far, there are no confirmed takers on the parts I listed above. I sent PMs to those who messaged me and who have first call on a few parts. I'd like to be able to hold onto everything until CEVS, rent a U-Haul van and bring it out, but that might not be possible and I don't want the hobby to lose out. Plus, a U-Haul VAN will also cost me about $400 from Beaver Falls to Illinois, including mileage and fees.
Remember, I'll do everything I can to keep the parts cost low to account for shipping or anything else. Every part is make an offer or if I mention a price, know it is "OR BEST OFFER".
