I did, but that one is not up for grabs any time soon. This is one of his must do projects along with his 68? Charger RT and 67 Coronet 440/4spd convertible.

Awesome score!!!!! I installed the Spectra Premium 3/8" fuel sending unit in mine. http://ecat.spectrapremium.com/apps/ecat/mainfile.php?vehicle_id=1078972&model=CHARGER&year=1969&make=DODGE&splash=false&action=search_by_vehicle&module=product_catalog It's for a 69 Charger,but will fit yours without any or very little tweaking. DO NOT use the supplied seal. It WILL leak. Use the original or go to your dealership and order a new one. The stock pickup is 5/16". You can go to Canadian Tire and they can order it. Just order it by part # and not by the year and model or the DORFF behind the counter will give you the "deer in the headlights" look. This Monaco looks to be in outstanding cond. The Canadian Monacos had 318s for std engine while the 383 got the nod in the US. How does the rear window channel look? Any rust?.

Thanks for the link. The 3/8 unit looks like it has a return line, but I don't think there is one. Probably just use the 5/16 - good enough for my use. Rear window looks to be fairly solid, but there might be one or two spots under the vinyl. This car was built on May 5, 69 and sold in Saskatchewan and moved to Penticton, BC before the end of 69. There is a 1969 BC inspection sticker on the windshield - so it's the original glass. It has not been registered in over 25 years. The second owner cleaned it up, changed fluids, rebuilt the carb, and now has it running from a gas can in the engine compartment. It actually drives really nice. Can't wait to get it home. I'll be able to drive this one while I finish the 300.

 By the way, do you have a spare one of these?

I sold my NOS L+R brite trim pieces to Brent (Pewtermonaco). These are almost unobtanium. Those back 6 pieces of brite trim pieces are the hardest things to find on these cars,as everyone seems to rub the garage door post once in awhile.

This must have been real close because there is not even a hint of a scratch on the paint - only a damaged trim piece.

I've seen quite a few Monaco's and they are all dented. The pieces actually stick out a whisker past the bumpers edge. The piece is made of thin aluminum and has a brite coating simmilar to anodizing. This piece weighs about as much as 5 sheets of paper.You cannot polish them as you will go through the thin layer of coating. The passenger sides tend to get more dents as you cannot see and judge the back end of the car like the D/Side. I looked for a good 5 years for those pieces (NOS) and even finding a good used one will be hard. I went a different direction and sprayed all of my trim pieces with the silver argent textured paint such as on a 71' Cuda's shaker hood scoop.

Glad I own the Diesel.  While the trailer isn't enclosed,I got 14 MPG running through the rockies and the plucked chicken.

I've often thought about making a heavy duty frame and canvassing it.  That way I can take it down when it's not needed.  I could do it easy enough, but now the trailer is local so I won't put anymore money into the trailer.  I have had offers of $5000 the way it is right now though. . . .
