Didn't get the Washington one, but it looks like my options have widened thanks to hemifury! I can take any 74-77 C-body sedan. It still doesn't need a motor or transmission. I have a really mean, brand new 440 and 727 tourqueflite on the stand waiting to go into nothing less than a Bluesmobile.
If anyone is trying to get rid of their project and they want it to go to someone who will keep at it for as long as it takes, I'm the guy! I am not looking to sell/flip the car, and IF I ever need to get rid of it(Big if), it stays with us on this site!
(Edit: Kinda don't think a VIN swap is a good idea. Looks frowned upon.)
Life keeps throwing me curve balls. Just out of reach, or just out of my now lowering price range. My plan was to get an older Monaco, fix it up, and flip or trade it for a '74 sedan.
I got a spare 440 that was fixed up by my NHRA racing uncles, and I really want to get it off the stand and into my own Bluesmobile. It's only got about 2000 miles on it and came with it's matching, fresh, 727 Torqueflite tranny. Fresh coat of Chrysler 440 blue, looks too pretty to sit! (I also got kinda picky and decided I can't put that motor in anything less than a '74.)
So, my mission now is to scout out the 74's and share them here to help keep them in the community and when I get enough dough saved up, I'll know right were to look!
