    Well, you can't build anything like that for the money he is asking, so in that sense, ya it's a good deal.
    On the other hand, it appears to be about a 74 model (can't tell in small picture) which isn't the most desirable body style with the big crash bumpers and all. After 72 the prices drop substantially. So it's not going to be a collectable by any means.
    If you want something to tool around in for some fun, and be different than everyone else, it's a great price to get into something and turn the key.

    I go back many years with Mopar. I raced Hemi's and 6 Pac's in the late 70's and built A and B bodies in the next two decades. I say put 9500.00 in an envelope and hand it to him. Once he has the cash in hand the car will be yours. The drive train is worth over 7k so you will be getting a good deal. Good luck

    Thanks for the info guys. I am going to go check out a few other cars this week and not rush into anything quite yet. I figured it was not the most desirable year but at the same time I like that not everyone has one so Ill mull it over.

    Sharp looking car and one that you don't see a whole lot of anymore. I agree that the parts alone exceed the asking price. Just be sure to look it over real good and ask all the questions that you can think of. Try everything to make sure it works -- lights, wipers and all the other crap that can nickel and dime you on a car. Look for evidence of past body work or sheetmetal replacement, inspect body gaps and alignment of panels, look for leaks, pull the dipsticks, radiator cap and oil fill cap to see what lurks inside. Allow the car to run and come fully up to temp -- be sure to watch the exhaust on cold startup and on revs to see if it puffs blue smoke.
