Title: Greetings from ChicagoLand!!!
Post by: Bob Schaefer on June 11, 2010, 04:15:42 AM
Hello... So I have finally picked up another Dodge wagon, after 25 years... It's a 1969 Monaco, and will need a decent amount of body work, and other things. The interior is great, the body is fair, and the engine needs some TLC, but it runs, and I am a happy man.
 
I'm gonna try to attach a couple of pics... Now that I have it, and I've found a couple of these great sites, I will probably be a regular poster, since my skills may be as rusty as some of the body panels...
 
The car came with a 383 G-code, but a previous owner plopped an Edlebrock Performer, and a Carter 4bbl on top, electronic ignition, and dual exhaust... It's not the same as my old HP 383 in the previous Beast, but it has plenty of potential, and the stuff I would have done first has already been done.. :-)

Nice Car!!!  I love fuselage wagons, having had 3 of them, I feel they are the best wagons ever built.

Hey snotty!  After 7 years, I don't remember if they are 14's or 15's on that car.

1969 was the year all C's came with standard 15" wheels and tires and continued to the end of the C bod line in 1978 
1968 was the last year for 14" on all C's
