I like it personally. Odd color & all. Just out of my budget & I don't need another one right now anyway. Welcome to the site & good luck with the sale.

They are still out there thought for the others that can't find one reasonably priced. You just have to be patient until the right one come along. I found my complete 70' 500 S.E. that came with a 440 for less than most are selling the front bumper assemble for these days.

Little update on the car, Just did a shoot with the car for a upcoming Discovery series where they go over the car and give their opinion as well as an appraisal... Should air late summer/early fall...

Hopefully we'll get to see that in the uk.
Personally I like the colour and patina of your car and if it was mine I'd just fix any rust issues and use it. Not every car has to be fully restored.

I had a '68 once that I barely used as I didn't want it to get damaged.
The one I have now is really rough and will pretty much stay rough so when it's finally roadworthy I'll use it more without the worry of it picking up a scratch or a dent.

It looks like a nice car, priced very high, but who knows?

Can or WILL you say what the discovery show appraised it at?
Anyway you slice it it looks like a nice, cool Charger.
Good luck.

I like your 70 a lot. I would fix the structural/floor/trunk pan rust, do a mechanical restoration, and drive it as is. The patina and color are awesome!

However, I am extremely skeptical that somehow Discovery or Velocity Channel will make a car show worth watching. They are 0 for 300 at the moment. icon_smile_big

Delusional jerkoff. My 70 500 was in better shape and running when I paid $1700 in March 2000. Even adjusting for "Charger fever", the car is still listed for about double a reasonable price.
Wow... that's not very nice... So your comparing your 500 (which probably has a 318 in it) to my R/T? And your comparing what you paid for it 18 years ago? And I'm the "delusional jerkoff"

Come on, man...Look at the thread title. The prices these cars are listed for are not mentioned in this thread if they are reasonable. It is the delusional people that get mentioned here. YOU are one of them. The car is not driveable in its current condition. It is NOT a desireable color. It is a 440 automatic, converted to a 4 speed R/T which is a great car but yours needs everything. A running driver with decent paint can be bought for the money you are asking. I am not the only one that feels this way. Reread the responses. Here is one:

"No offense to the seller, but unfortunately, it needs too much work to want to be driven as is & a full restoration is necessary which will set you back 40-50 grand, at least. Today, top dollar for this car fully restored is 65 grand, however, that might be tough to get due to the bland color. So, the logical thing to do is to do the math to come up with a true price."

 I was obnoxious, sure but was I wrong? If you are asking too much for something, aren't you jerking people around?   
Welcome to the forum, maybe your thinking will change. Sometimes people are in their own bubble and do not know how the rest of the world works. I don't know all the answers and I never will. I do know that while I did get lucky in 2000 to get my car at a great price. It was a 318 car but even then, the "Charger Fever" I mentioned had not yet hit. The Fast and Furious movies have people thinking that these cars are worth crazy money. In your defense, many people share your opinion...otherwise there would not be a thread here on this very topic. Seriously though... these cars in the condition of yours do not usually sell at your price. Maybe some movie studio stunt crew will, maybe an oil rich Arab might, it may happen.

Better to be a "has been", than a "never was"

Looks to be a fairly complete and original example, and IMO, potentially a very good starting point for someone so inclined.

As far as pricing ? IMO, the "test" would be if the Buy It Now was reduced to say $25K ?
Wherein I believe, the Car would be quickly snapped up by someone, and indicative to the Seller that money may have been left on the table.

As is said, opinions are like **sholes in that everyone has one(including me).
And myself included within that gene pool, I don't think there is one of us here that if it was our Car ? We wouldn't be doing exactly the same thing trying to maximize returns.

Of course Kern Dog is 100% correct, not only for his own thoughts, but he quoted me and I am also 100% correct. Together, that makes us to be 200% correct.

To everyone else, I really don't care if it sells or not, its just another bank account for me... If it sells, I plan to buy a 68 which is what I really want. and with that said, I'm sure Ill end up paying the same or more for a car in similar condition to mine...

As the owner of a needs everything 70 Charger R/T, I would be happy with the 10-15K range for my car as it sits.. But since I am still alive, the car isn't for sale.. Now my Daughter might want a million for it when I pass, but you can deal with that..

Selling your 70 to get a 68 sounds like a good ideal to me. 2thumbs
