CARS IN BARNS
"FORGOTTEN, NEGLECTED MOPARS"
I got this from the mopars.org Website: The car I chose to profile does not belong to me (I wish) and is NOT FOR SALE. It's a very desirable and low production 1967 Plymouth GTX convertible with factory 426 Hemi 4 Speed and Dana 60 axle. The VIN is RS27J7______ and is just 1 of 7 built! This vehicle started it's life in Calgary, Alberta and is now about 30 miles from here. It has approximately 95,000 miles on the complete power train (all numbers match).
.....THESE TWO BIRDS SEEM TO BE EVERYONE'S FAVORITES,
APPARENTLY THEY ARE LOCATED IN THE VICINITY OF DAYTONA SPEEDWAY....
....Hi, I noticed you had my image on your page a long time ago. But
now that it's you visitor's favorite, how about a little credit ;-). You could mention that you got
it from (http://www.net-solutions.net/~mAARk/)(Site is not working, if you have an updated site,
please email it to us.) a great resource for
AAR 'Cuda information and "how-to" on numbers matching documentation.
Where did you hear they were near Daytona Speedway?
(I haven't done a great job of protecting their location), you're
close. I plan to go back to where they are (don't you love the secrecy ;-))
in a couple of weeks, I'll take the camera and see if I can get some more
images, maybe some info from the owner (if they don't shoot first!).
I'll send you the images when I get back.
BTW If you didn't get them originally from my site, that's my '89 Chevy
conversion van in the rear view mirror in that shot!
SEND IN YOUR PICTURES AND TELL US THE STORIES OF THE CARS IN BARNS, DRIVEWAYS, FIELDS AND ON FRONT LAWNS , THAT CAN'T BE BOUGHT AND ARE JUST ROTTING AWAY IN THE DIRT...AND THE OWNERS ARE GONNA RESTORE THEM SOMEDAY....YEAH , RIGHT....
'68 HEMI ROADRUNNER....
THIS RUNNER HAS BEEN SITTING IN THE SAME SPOT SINCE AROUND 1986...
THE CAR IS NOT FOR SALE.....IT'S A 426 HEMI / AUTOMATIC CAR WITH A DANA......
As if this isn't enough, its original color is Red! Some options include: Magnum 500 wheels, power disc brakes (manual steering), AM radio, light package with fender turn signal indicators, sport mirror, 3 speed wipers and tinted windshield, as well as the all-important drive train option. Owner installed options are: tachometer, red metallic steering wheel (this car once had a 4x4 transfer case shifter for the Hemi 4 speed) and lastly a trailer hitch. As you can see by the photo, this car is parked outside year 'round - with no rear window (full of snow, rain, etc.). It hasn't been driven since the owner hit a truck about 14 years ago (1986). It is not for sale as he says he's going to restore it "someday". P.S.: The owner is a Chevy mechanic that has been offered up to $35,000 for it, but still not for sale! Owner: Unknown
