Ya see the problem with building Bluesmobile's is that it becomes addicting! Here is the foundation for my next build, Daisy. She's a 1977 Royal Monaco Brougham with a 360 upgraded with an Edelbrock intake and 4bbl carb. She's originally an Oklahoma car and is extremely solid. Interior is factory gold/tan and in really nice shape, save for a few split seams. The last owner kept the car in storage for the last 10 years in Michigan and drove it sparingly until this spring when he had to move her outside and decided to sell her because he didn't want her to be left out in the elements.
I will be converting the body to '74 specs and perform movie accurate paint and markings, along with the push-bars and spot light.
This car will be put of FOR SALE after the conversion. If I find a buyer for her before completion I will convert her to their liking. Although the more OCD I get with her, the higher the price! You'll be able to follow progress at www.thechicagobluesmobile.com

- I suppose I wasn't the only one who thought it was going to be a yellow Road Runner or Satellite We do have a member who has a Blumo and did indeed have a Daisy car as well. It was for sale here years ago. This is not it ...
That's something but it's not it ... the car, for sale there the one I was talking about. Earlier. So ...
What is your timeline for the Blumo build ? Ready for Christmas ?
Yeah, I can see why that caused some confusion! I named her Daisy because she's yellow! I would love to have her done by November, that way all work will be done and she can rest in the garage until sold.
