I’m giving much thought in purchasing a 61 dodge Convertible. How are mechanical parts availability. My 55 st Regis was really difficult and I do not want to get into that situation again. Body and parts are fine

Your thoughts

Thanks. Gary

Easy car to work on. Buy it. They are fun to drive as I have one.

It’s back on eBay at a price I’m willing to take a chance on. I’ve restored cars in much worsen condition. Actually this would be one of the best. On my way to Hersey this week If I don’t find anything else Ill go for it

The most solid advice one can give or get on 61 Dodge is to
flee, while you still can, make sure your mental health insurance
is current, and prepare to be given LOTS of funny looks !

Seriously though ... they are awesome cars. A whole lot of
bizarre in the styling dept., but super cool for it. Mechanically,
the Forward Look was never as good as it was at the end. Parts
are easy, easy to work on ... hard to find a better one, especially
if you like having something no one else has.
