Bought a CB radio...
« on: July 30, 2008, 03:55:13 AM »

...and a 1978 New Yorker came with it!!
 
This, my friends is a gen -yoo-wine barn find!  Has not been onthe road for...ready for this?... 26 years!
 
Found it on Craig's List.  700 bucks.  No picture.  Hmmmm, maybe a good parts car?  Took a trailer just in case.
 
Are you $%#@ kidding me???
 
TOO NICE.  Clean her up, do a fluids change, etc, she's gonna be NICE!

Two Mopar big-un's in the same garage....Where are you gonna live when yer wife throws ya out Stan? 

Wonderful catch....keeps the dream alive for all of us.

(BTW, my Roadrunner was bought in 1982 for $800 and has been in storage for....26 years! But it don't look that nice!)

The clock says 50k.  I think original.  My friend thinks it's gone around once. 
It's rust free  so truthfully I don't know.  I'm usually a good judge of these things but this one is a tossup. If it's really been off the road for 26 years, hard to rack up more than 50k in just four years.

SCHAWEEET....
 
That's one sexy ride....nice score!!
 
From the pics I don't think she's rolled over...you would see a lot more wear and tear from 150K....maybe the "in storage 26 years" might be a stretch but regardless it's a beauty.

I didn't think that those finds still happened in the 21st century.  Great score Stan!  She's got potential, and I agree with you on the mileage. 
 
Good luck with the missus part  10-4...?

So Stan won't be "Snowman".  I didn't think so regardless...  we'll call him "RubberDuck" or better yet "Rubber Chicken"!
 
God I love, hate, love, hate that movie...  My family has a personal connection with Mr. Gleason so what can I say...

Does the CB mike have the pentastar on it??
The radio appears to be a GM unit or aftermarket.
The Mopar ones filled the whole face plate.IIRC.
I'll be 10-6 doing a 10-100,10-4
