Well after 16 years the 59 Dodge and I will be parting ways!
A fellow from Colorado wanted to buy the car but changed his mind,soooooo~~~~~
She is up for sale.

As most of you know, She started life as a Coronet convertible, with a white body and blue top.
The seller I had bought it from used donor parts from a custom Royal to convert her to a Custom Royal.
I finished a few things he did not complete, redid the interior from black vinyl to the correct
Custom Royal interior. I also replaced the SS eyebrows with the correct (for Custom Royal) eyebrows.

The car appears to be a "perfect custom Royal" until you open the hood.
The vin tag will decode as a coronet convertible and the engine is "Slightly different from stock" LOL

The engine was built 10 years ago with the best parts available at the time.
KB alloy pistons, Edelbrock performer aluminum heads and intake manifold for two 4'barrel carbs.
The engine dynoed at 476 HO and 535 ft lbs of torque on 87 octane gas.
I just installed a new 4 core radiator, new edelbrock 1906 carbs spark plug wires etc.
I had the valves adjusted. She starts and runs fantastic and "cool" too.

The car has the 6 way power swing out seats, power steering, disc brakes (front only), new master cylinder.
The top is in xlnt shape and works very well (Fast up/down).
Anyway the car looks and runs great. It is NOT a "concours car"!
The car has the hideaway DVD player

PM me if your are interested, as you know, it is a very very rare car!
There are many videos of the car on Youtube.

yeah and note "Negotiable", $70,000.00 USD.

Not feeling well, but if I feel better I will put pictures in the album section.

Sorry about forgetting to post the price.

Some of you may recall, that about a year ago, (maybe more than that)
We asked you guys to try to put a value on the car, (Yeah I know it's hard to do),
but the "general consensus" back then was $85,000, and that's about what I have
invested in the car, but better yet than asking $70,000.00, just make me an offer.

The car really is in "close to perfect mechanical shape", new radiator, new master cylinder,
2 new 1906 carbs, new rear "Main springs", a "Big M" heater core, (Thanks A Lot John F)!!
The shop says brakes are good, doesn't need pads shoes or whatever.
All the rubber parts in the front suspension were just replaced in the last month or so,
even the rubber grommets or whatever is used in the anti sway bar (yep it has an anti sway bar).

Anyway if you have questions fire away, I also appreciate your comments too, keep em coming!!!!
