There is no putty on this car, so what you see is what you get. The following items are not pictured, but
they do go with the car. Front bumper, hubcaps, trunk lock and latch, Tail light housings, both exhaust ports,
Firesweep name plates, and passenger door handle. The bad stuff... it has no floors, and engine is stuck. I have
some of the side trim for the front fenders, and maybe the doors, but not the quarter panel trim.
Make me an offer and come and get it quick.

I'm gonna have to buy a piece of land in Arizona, and take these cars out there, so the don't rust anymore.
Better yet, someone take these things off my hands.

I have the radiator for the Firesweep and the extra ashtray. Please note that the windshield has a crack in it.
I will take $1,500 for the Firesweep 2 door hardtop.
The Firedome and 59 Chrysler are no longer available.
I still have the 59 Dodge Custom royal 4 dr sedan, factory A/C, swivel seats, etc. $4,900 .
and the 59 Coronet 2 dr ht. cut up, with title, $1,000.

Here are some more pictures of it I took today. The roof is good. The trunk floor is rusted out.
It rolls very easily. Steers good. There is no title. I will send a Bill of sale.

Well, if you're in West Virginia or Sweden, you say "sure, I can restore that".
But if you're in California or Arizona you say "scrap it".

I'm sure that someone can use it.

A premature sold. The deal fell through, so this car is for sale again.
Actually, all of these cars are for sale. Make me a serious offer on any or all.

By the way, I have all of those interior parts for the 59 CR 4 door. I hope to pull it out and clean it up this weekend.
The only thing the Custom Royal is missing, is the roof trim.

Yes, it is the same car. I bought it that way. Look real close at the first picture. I did try to fix it a little bit.
I touched it up with the blue paint. Now it really stands out. That was not my intention.
Also, I replaced the trunk lid with a better one.

A lot of askers, but no takers. The bumpers and tail lights are worth the asking price. After that, it's all gravy.
The fenders, Dash, clock, radio, wheels, glass, ect...

I have the top section of that fin that could be used to repair the quarter. Free to anyone who purchases the car and would like it. The bottom repair panel of course, is best purchased from Sweden.

I'll believe it when I see the quality. There are so many fakers out there that I no longer get my hopes up.

I hope not. I hope someone puts the effort in to fix it. They are easy to destroy but impossible to get back. I was amazed that the previous owner of my fastback Barracuda was going to part it out. He didn't think it was worth messing with because it had rust in the lower quarters......

I wish I had more time, and money, to work on these cars. I would have put them back on the road.

I don't think the new owner is a member here.

Lot of stubborn and resourceful Germans, Swedes, Fins and Norwegians up here. I think it will be saved.

That sounds good. If you see this car cruising around up there, snap a picture and post it. I would love to see it on the road.
