    Thank you guys, yes I love that body line too and that dashboard I'm in love with it lol

    The idea is to enjoy it as much as we can and perhaps someday going through a resto but not yet!
    Everything sheet metal is original to the car, trunk floor is solid, still have the jack in it the original spare tire, the marks on the deck lid with the instruction paper stuck on it.
    I think though that the dashboard upper pad is new as well as the carpets. The car has been repainted once in its life.
    Not sure about the upholstery on the seats but they look original but in an excellent shape.
    Floors under the carpet will check those tonight.

    The rear end is a 742 case with 3:23 sure grip in it.
    Engine, trans have been redone, seems to run strong (only ride it in my street) didn't have the chance to test the car yet. Sounds awesome (but that is obvious because it is a Mopar lol).
    New seals in the rear end not sure about the bearings..
    New 15'' wheels and tires only 300 miles on it according to the seller.
    It is a non A/C car with Power steering.
    The brakes have been upgraded to a dual core master cylinder with assistance. Seems to brake really good.
    Car runs straight from what I saw without hands on the wheel.

    That is for sure Quickbird! But a disease like that, I'm fine with it lol!

    Thanks Russ, yes no worry I'll keep up on the Runner, now my dad has been to the hospital for is shoulder surgery, it went very well so that is cool.
    He has to stay 4 weeks without moving his arm then the rehab starts til the end of April. So 4 months to go.
    But I will work on the Runner for sure! Just moving slower now.

    Just forgot to mention, the car is an Arizona car, just saw yesterday night the floors firewall and cowl are very clean no rust whatsoever that was a great discovery! All the wiring harness are new,
    Now just enjoy driving it till the runner is done and after might considering doing some work on the Charger here and there to make it to my style.

    Yes it is, I am totally happy with it! Very solid car! It drives nice and quite until you jump on the right foot pedal! Drives very straight with no ends on the wheel.
    Just have to change the leaf springs bushings sway bar bushing (done it this week) and all 4 shocks and the car will be done.
    Just place an order on the shocks, waiting for them to arrive home.

    Yes Russ, this is the first time that I buy an old american car with no rust lol!! So glad!
