Dodge & Plymouth Enthusiast Reveals Massive Mopar Warchest
Instagrammer is a one-stop shop for endless parts from some of the most legendary Mopar muscle cars ever produced.
Hot Rod recently ran a piece penned by Ryan Brutt, who goes by The Auto Archeologist online, where he visited an insane collection of Mopar vehicles and parts. We aren’t sure whether to call it a collection or a graveyard or a hoard, as the guy is clearly beyond the point of having a collection of parts. He has some cars which appear to be complete, he has cars in pieces stacked on top of each other and he has cars that are literally suspended from the ceiling.
In addition to those cars, the unnamed Mopar collector has a seemingly-endless spread of parts, from body panels to engine blocks that line the shelves, the floor and the rafters.
Take a Look Around
Brutt doesn’t offer much insight into the sprawling collection of cars and parts, but really, there isn’t much to be said. Everything is so jam-packed into the building that it is hard to make sense of what is what.
There is a Plymouth Duster 340 sitting outside while another A-body that appears to have been raced with 340 power is buried inside. We also get a look at a Dodge van from the 1970s, a 1967 Coronet R/T, an Aspen coupe, a 1967 Barracuda, an array of partial B-body cars and some classic Darts.
Around all of these vehicles, there are parts piled everywhere. In fact, they aren’t just around the cars, as in many cases, there are parts piled on top of cars, filling the interiors and lining the many shelves the reach to the high ceilings. Even the ceiling itself is helping with the storage effort, with grilles and tail panels from several classic Mopar muscle cars being balanced carefully across the rafters.
While we have included a few pictures from the Hot Rod piece here just to give you an idea of what to expect, but this is really a piece that you will want to check out in its entirety in the original piece.
