Guys, you have watched the build. We didn't scrimp on JACK SHOOT. Ain't a speck of rust on it and professionally built cop drivetrain. I put it on C bodies for sale, good grief the keyboard jockeys. Someone on here want a fine car, fly here and drive it home. I will be getting the push bar and spotlight on it while you are on the way. $20k
If you want it cheaper I could take the E86 440 out and put in the low mile RV 440. It is scheduled to be at the Mount Prospect reunion June 16 for your review. firstname.lastname@example.org

I saw your post on the forcbodiesonly and wasn't surprised. My little response in support of you -
"WOW, while I am not surprised, I still find it shocking the negativity coming from this group.
Firstly the crotchety old dudes on this site are notoriously cheap. They'll tell you formal error cars are not that valuable and not in demand. While that may certainly be true of New Yorkers and Imperials, the same cannot be said of Monaco's, which are wildly in demand. The front-end alone of a '74 Monaco is worth as much as they think a whole car is worth.
Secondly there is a disdain for Bluesmobiles or anything that has been wildly modified from the way Mother Mopar built them in this group, so don't expect much support when it comes to trying to sell a car that can and will get 4-5 times what their "equivalent" formal error car would get.
Well done Bluesmobiles can and will get anywhere from 15-25k, especially with the go fast goodies, you just have to market it to the right group (this isn't it).
Thanks for the info and support. That is a bunch of remoras on that thread but I wear Big Boy Panties. LOL We put couple hunert' miles on it today. Very nice. It will be at the reunion with the Fury and I DON"T need to sell it. Will live in lawn mower shed if need be. See you in a few.....Stephen
PS It DEFINITLY has the GO FAST 74 E86 junk(built to 69 specs not 74). I have faster cars but nowhere near as sleepy. Anybody qualified at the 16th gathering is welcome to drive it. FUN TIME expected.

Put about 500 miles on it so far. It is a HOOT to drive. If I would not have just finished this and have my shop area so junked up with C bodies, I would have high bid on that California K car. We are going to "line 'em up" in a drag race this weekend, my butt in seat says the black and white will win. Phish
I think the original mirror in my truck matches that one, even the ceiling mount looks the same. But I had to take it out because the glass had a ton of rust behind it... Where do you find the light btw? Is there a brand or some kind of keyword to look for?
Send your mirror to Joyce Borell mirror restoration in Pa. The ticket light was in a donor cop car, I will look for markings. It had a factory harness that tied into the dome light circuit. We also got the correct spotlight mount from Unity and had a light off the donor. I also changed the small tires that made the car a low rider. We threw a trim party and put the best pieces from six cars on this one. It is SLICK and SICK.....Phish
[quote. Where do you find the light btw? Is there a brand or some kind of keyword to look for?
That's a '76 and up factory ticket light, my '78 Fury A38 North Carolina trooper car and my '82 and '84 Diplomats all had that same light. '75 and earlier cars had a smaller round light that resembled a dome light with a separate switch.
