Jeeez, Foamy.  Could you find anything a little rarer?  

Seriously, since I talk to a lot of "Formal" guys, I'l keep an eye out.

James - why '75? '74-77 are essentially all identical - the '74 and
some '75s had a 4 headlight grille, the '75 Brougham and all the rest
had the 2  big headlight grille, otherwise the same. I had a '76
and '77 Gran Fury Brougham... great cars, but stay away from any with
Lean Burn,  and I myself prefer the 360 engine to the Big blocks,
and the 318 is a tad wimpy....  my 1 cent (2 cents after the
sub-prime downturn).

Good point.  A 360 is just about right for those cars as an average daily

well i saw an old MSP car today that was a 75 with 4 headlights and i kinda fell in love. a 360 would be great.
i've been looking towards getting another Mopar but didn't wand a A cuz they are too small and a bit pricey with v8's
and B bodies are WAYY out of my price range. escpecially in drivable condition

Foamy: A clarification on the 74-78 Formal Furies:

In 74, all Furies were C-bodies.  Top of the line Fury was the Gran Fury.  The Furies had quad headlights and the Gran Fury had single headlights.

In 75 and up, the B-bodies became Furies and ALL C-bodies were Gran Furies. All Gran Furies had single headlights.

If you like the quads, you're looking for a '74.  Or any 74  Monaco / 75+ Royal Monaco.

And yep, you're right.  The Formals have to be hands down the best bargains around.

Almost right Stan - the 74  Fury III  and Gran Furies ALL had
4 lights ... I have the factory brochure. In '75 the single head light
model was introduced as the Gran Fury Brougham.. I also have the 75
brochure. The lower 4 headlight model was known as the Gran Fury Custom
instead of Fury III.

Oh, and all the '75+ Royal Monacos had hideaway head lights. I think those front ends are ugly.

Now THAT is cool... one problem is that guys are buying up '74 - '77 C
bodies and making Bluesmobile or other cop car clones,  driving up
demand - if it weren't for that these cars would be even
cheaper!!!!  I saw a '77 Gran Fury near Pittsburgh last year: 34K
orig mi in mint condition for $3500... The good thing is that all these
cars were bought by really old people, age 60+  (GULP! - whoa!
...that's me!)  and many were babied and not driven much.

I think I have seen that before at the Gilmore Red Barns Mopar show. IIRC it had a 400 in it.
