    Hey everyone looking at buying a challenger vert. I will attach the links to them. I basically want any and all opinions on the cars and the dealers. I know I need to get vin # and fender tags I plan on calling tomorrow for those. Hopefully the links work.

    Did you notice that on the orange one, the left fender front lower area, valance, and bumper have been pushed up quite a bit. The blue one looks nice. Ask both of them to send you some pictures of the trunk and under body areas. You really need to thoroughly check them out personally.

    Please go look at the car you want to buy. Bought a 70 Bee and wished I went in person to see it. I am happy with the car but still wished I went in person. You dont want to drop big money and regret it.The blue chally is nice but I think the price is high.

    Curtis, welcome to FEBO from New Jersey and good luck with your convertible hunt.

    That 1970 blue Challenger looks good.
    If it is an original A66 car, it is even more special. 45K is not a bad price for a clean convertible, especially if it is an original 340 car. If the car is as clean as it looks, it's a decent buy, but you really need to see it!

    Welcome to the site from the Motor City! I live in the Detroit area and have never heard of the dealer in Whitmore Lake but that blue Challenger looks like a beauty and I think pretty fairly priced even if it’s not a real 340 car. At least from the pictures....

    Thank you for the welcome and that kinda makes me nervous about not much information about them. It looks like a small restoration shop. I would not buy anything sight unseen though.

    When looking at these cars pay attention to the frame rails underneath and be comfortable with the integrity of them. Rust no undercoating and neglect is a killer. Quoting my father, "A pig with lipstick is still a pig."

    When I was searching for my '70, a year ago, I used Your Classic Car Classifieds and Community as a on-line source. "Some" a little bit on the gold-plated side, but none the less there is an occasional "Hmmm-mmm" pasted on that site.

    Wow, it is an A66 Challenger convertible
    They only made 264 A66 convertibles total.
    The automatic A66 verts came in at 178 cars, making the blue one a rare car.
    I am lucky enough to own an A66 Challenger convertibile, automatic w Y1 paint. It is costing me more to put my car in that condition then the purchase price of that car.

    I get excited when I see another A66 Challenger; especially the verts!

    John do you like to breath or eat .... both of your choices are extremely attractive .... two of my very favorite cars..... but without seeing or driving or really, really looking at it.... and how much to get near perfect.... if I was buying I would take the blue challenger ....
