    That is a nice car in a cool color
    1078 340 RT Challengers produced
    Butterscotch was estimated at about
    5.5% of production. Pretty rare.

    If the sheetmetal is all solid as the seller describes, it's in the $15-18K ballpark. When I see "easy restoration", I want to run away.

    I agree on your valuation but I think 20k is a fair asking price. You gotta start somewhere.

    651FEBF7-F68B-4F4F-BA1A-D5AF4F989B29.jpeg Gonna be my first E body. I have always heard if you want an E Body you gotta pay a little more. They are really nice people, and have owned it the last 12 years. I pick it up the first week in July. Might stop by Matt’s and let him check it out on my way back. Here is a pic of the fender tag they sent me.

    Awesome, post up some pics when you get it home. Hard to buy something without seeing in person. Hope it’s everything and more than your expecting. Good luck with the resto , it’ll be a looker when done

    I should get pretty close to your shop bringing it back, I’ll PM you some details as it gets closer. Your advice is priceless when it comes to restoration.

    Not to hijack, but I really wish I'd had the money a month ago to grab a really nice 71 R/T 340 Auto for $27k! :( We're talking drive it home and enjoy type of thing.

    He said it was original and rebuilt. Unfortunately the sale didn’t go through. They were willing to take $18K for it, but the higherest I could come up with was $16k. The car was also further disassembled from the original post at this point. Instead I picked up a 1970 R/T SE for half the price that is a four speed car on eBay.
