Just purchased a new Project Car!!!

I just purchased a new project. Its a 1972 Dodge Dart Swinger with a 318, rally wheels and dash, 727 and a rare (for these cars) 8 3/4 rear. The body is straight with only the slightest amount of surface rust. As you can see, the interior needs some work. The engine does not run but it is an easily solved ignition problem. It need just a handful of trim pieces and I paid $500 for the whole deal.....the guy might even through in a 340 intake w/ 4bbl carb. I feel I got a great deal....what do y'all think?







Hopefully someday it will look like this!

When I was in HS one of the older guys bought a new one right after he graduated in '70. It was dark green metallic with white stripe and interior. I'm thinking his was a 340 but definitely was a 4 speed and within a year he had swapped on a six pack. Neat car and it ran pretty good as well. Good luck and enjoy.
