I looked at the guy's other items and he has a 100 amp alternator with brackets off of this car (it has a 360), could this be a small town police package car?
I emailed the guy asking if it is a police car and advised him to selling the nose complete. I also asked about some of the police only parts like door panels, speedo and bezel (possible radio delete, I don't see an antenna in the pics), and of course about some pieces I might need for my Gran Fury. I'll keep everyone on here posted. It might be worth someone making an offer on the whole car, rough or not it's still a Monaco and at this time looks fairly complete.

Black car, green gut, not police but a towing package. Would sell the whole car if anyone is interested. If you guys need a nose and all to convert a 76-77 you might want to email him before the parts online start getting bids.
I see you mentioned my stuff on that forum. Thank you. I see they figured out where I got it from too! LOL That thing was a hour from my house and the old guy I bought it from ordered it new. It has the some options on it I never saw before. Check out that towing package set up.I just put it on ebay. It even has weird brake controller on the pedal. When I first saw the trans cooler I thought it was A/C condenser. But its a non A/C car. I'm not trying to get rich on this thing, when I first went to look at it as soon as I saw where it was I said heck with it. He parked that thing in the friggin woods 20+ years ago. But when I told him I didnt want it he said The scrappers were coming to get it in a couple of days.So I took one for the team,give him 270 for it and spent all day in the rain sawing and digging it out. I have made a couple Blumo's in my day and I needed every one of those parts I have listed on ebay.And back then there was no internet! Anyway,let those guys know on the forum that I am easy to deal with. I would take a 100 for that hood and let em grab whatever else small stuff they wanted off the car while they were here. Anyway Thanks for giving me the proper exploitation!
Hey guys, I am the dude with the stuff on ebay. I have been a longtime Bluesmobile lover and have built a couple of them long ago. I just stumbled on to this one and now my interest is re-kindled. I was checking this forum out last night and I am very impressed.
I got to thinking if I could remember where some more Monacos were around my area. I do know where one is but as I recall it was in such a hard to get to place that I dont know if you could ever get it out. The thing is, if my memory is correct it was in real good shape. 74' civilian,brown exterior with tan interior. I might go there today and have another look,maybe take some pics to post on here later.
BTW Dont get me wrong guys, I aint trollin'around here around trying to make money on this stuff. I know how hard it is to find parts for these things. Just trying to help out.
Welcome aboard Nighttrain! These guys on this forum are great and full of information, not just on Bluesmobiles but C-Bodies in general, I'm sure you'll find joining beneficial if you plan on building another car.
