It has a 440 six pack, but it is not original motor. The restoration looks very complete and of high quality, at least it appears so from pictures and description. I really don't care that the motor is not original, I am just going to drive and enjoy the car, won't show it real often.
Is the price fair? I've seen some that came from the factory with 440 six packs priced from $60,000 to $130,000, so I'm just not sure whether it is a decent price or not. Thanks in advance.
Looks like a very good price. Why wouldn't you show it?
I might show it some, but I would drive it regularly so it wouldn't stay in pristine condition. I'm not sure if that is the smartest thing in the world, to take a car this nice and drive it 2-3k miles a year, but it's better than buying a new challenger hellcat in my opinion.
440 CID 6 Pack, 3x2 Barrel, High Compression V8 Engine.(NOM) Period Correct A833, Heavy Duty 4 Speed Manual With Hurst Shifter. 8 3/4 Rear Axle 4.10 Sure Grip.
It should have a dana rear not 8 3/4! Transmission is a 23 spline instead of the 18 most likely. No pics of fender tag or build sheet even tho it had a motor swap. I want to see it before i even consider spending a dime to see if they changed anything else on it(original color auto-4 speed etc...). They should at least disclose this. I would see if you can find any similar cars the sold recently like it. All comes down to who wants it and what they are willing to spend. $35.800 is what Hagerty says it's worth with the original 383 like it left the factory with (it is NOT and original 440 6 pack car!).
High horse power motors (hemi and 440-6) with the 4 speed got dana's, Auto's got the 8 3/4. Any hemi or 440-6 also got the skid plate on the k frame.
Moparite, I'll certainly will agree with the above. But am I reading your previous post wrong? You start it by saying " It should have a dana rear not 8 3/4! " However the VIN alone on "this" car indicates it's not a 440 of any sort from the get go. Therefore, IMO, it casts doubt that a Dana was ever in "this" car.
