Drinking and driving is really, really stupid.

My 1970 Fury III & 1970 Valiant are both '88' Plymouth Division hub cap cars, I do love the look.

Here it is back in the day.   Original owner put the mags on it.   Sold it in late 1976.    21,000 miles at the time.    It's had a pretty easy life.

Really nice looking car!!!!

Lots of details to look at.

Hard to tell, but is there a mismatch of the nose to body colors from the different paints in the 1976 picture?

The Tor-Red seems to be somewhat forgiving, much better than Limelight for example, for fading differences between the enamel and lacquer paints applied in production.

I have seen some detail pictures of a couple of un-restored Tor-Red cars. The formerly 12 mile car, when it had 5400 miles, and RM23VOA162292 which sold for a bunch and it had 22K on the clock.

Very hard to tell with the studio lighting as to color on the nose.  I'd be curious to see it in natural light.

Really a great car.

I wonder if the vin stamping on the trunk rail is wrong like the one on the radiator support. WINGNUT

What do you see wrong with it wingnut, I have most of those numeric characters between my two cars and the fonts and shapes seem correct.

Rad support is mis-stamped 169451 instead of the actual 169441.
