    so glad I found this site. It’s been a long time since I have done anything mopar so ...

    Over 20 years ago I came across this 69 convertible. Guy wouldn’t sell. I’ve pinged him every couple years.....He called me a couple weeks ago. Time to sell.

    Car was disassembled way back then. Most parts look to be there. Haven’t settled on money yet as we both are unsure. Maybe you all can assist...needs everything touched. Body decent except for lower rear driver 1/4.
    VIN RM27H9C27747
    Fender tag
    R11, V21, END
    C16, C55, J25, M31, N85, N96
    B5, B51, M6C, B7 528 197283
    E63, D21, RM27, H9G. 277479

    I can do the restoration. Biggest problem I see is missing hardware....fasteners all missing. Console missing, shifter missing, air cleaner missing.

    Sound's like a project. I have over 1500. Just in the console. Manual shift four speed. Paid around 400 for the shifter. Then had to find a Hurst shifter mec. You will find some thing's really hard to find. I did not know how hard to locate some part's would be. But a lot of part's are being reproduced. I have done all the body work and metal work my self to be able to buy part's. Yes I would like to see pic's also. Good luck. I would offer about 7.000 to about 10 thou. But may be some of the other guy's can help also.

I went over on Friday and pulled all the junk that was on the car off. Pictures were tough to get because of where it’s at in the middle of a lot of junk. Hopefully I can yank the car out in the next couple weeks. Yes protecting the car from the Az sun and occasional rain is the roof of a VW vanagon. Lol.

    No engine ? Missing parts? For me I’d offer about 2.500 - 3000. Lots of parts to find here

    Engine and transmission is there as is most everything else. Pictures actually look worse than car is. Believe me I have done a couple others much worse of a start than this one.

    She's rough for sure, but worth the fun when done. Love the rag tops. The N96 Air Cleaners are around, the duct work on the hood is the hard part. You'll pay over a grand for that, but so cool to see when you lift the hood. Tony's Mopar parts in Delaware will have a bunch of stuff you'll need.

    3500 if he can’t find the hundreds of bolts that are missing or 4000 if he does. They may be in the trunk which should have gotten opened today. The shifter may be in there...think I spotted it under the radiator and other stuff. I am out of town on a business trip in Oklahoma City all week so....I’ll get at it Saturday and tow it home.

    Not a bad price for the car. Hope every thing is their. But would like to say the interior and trim parts are not cheap. The saying is you will have as much in interior as the rest of the car. Keep the pic's coming on your progress. :thumbsup2:

    Still waiting to get started on the car. Interior except for console is all there...needs everything touched though. Console is in at least 2 pieces so will need to locate one.

    Really excited to get started on this. Probably around Christmas holidays get it on a rotisserie and get body worked. Still don’t have the hundreds of fasteners need to put it back together. May try to locate a parts car for that. There have been a couple 69 Plymouth’s come up on local craigslist but I didn’t act

    Try pentastar reproductions. They have kits of fasteners that you will need

    I saw a B-body 69-consul for sale on Facebook somewhere. Pretty sure it was Tony's. I'll look on his page on report back

    Car was in central Phoenix. I Stumbled on it over 20 years ago.....and have been trying to buy it for that long.
    The owner wouldn’t let go but I’d remind him every year or so I was still ready to buy it.
