 It's not for sale and never will be.  She has already been offered 200k and turned it down.  I plan on pulling it out in the spring and cleaning the car up.
15,000 miles, original paint is thick and clean.
More coming.

There would only be a bloody stump left of the guy's arm offering the 200k - wow.

Nice find though!  cheers

Yeah, this thing will clean up like brand new. The paint is amazing and the interior is very very nice except for the moss steering wheel. She has the tag, build sheet, bill of sale, owners manual, which has never been opened and is still sealed.  Someone who knew the dealer told the dealer owner who had the car and he closed shop years ago but said " I knew I saved this stuff for a reason " and gave them ever piece of paperwork from Plymouth to them.  It came from Maine in 1971 for 2,800.00.

I can't believe I found it?  I was mentioning it to a friend and he says I know where that car is.  slap

good find Rob yesnod drool5  great pictures thanks for posting popcrn cheers
Thanks guys. My head is still spinning to know this type of car is out there in this shape. Blows my mind. I'm so excited to be a part of getting it back on the road and cleaned up like almost new. The husband was so nice, his wife the owner was out but he said she will be thrilled to meet me again ( I met her in the mid 80's when I saw the wing in the gargage window ).  I told him I would work on it for free and clean and detail it.  I don't plan on this until spring 2011 and at that time I'll have clear pics and video and fire it up. Last time out was 1999.
I read the Aero thread all the time and dream of finding something original like this one. The Red Daytona posted recently made me so wanna be there, and now after a little digging around I found this true classic. Very excited, can you tell?
When I told him I had a Orange 69 charger he knew the car and actually worked with me in the 80's in the same building and remembered me!
He said she had a 71 charger out back for years just rotting away and she wouldn't get rid of it as long as It ran.  So he put sugar in the tank and junked it soon after.  It was a blue 318 car.

Yeah cool stuff for sure. I talked to the wife tonight for awhile. She is protective of the car But I am gonna swing over there and put air in the tires for now. She's interested in the AirChamber I store my Charger in. She remembered me from the 80's and the different Muscle cars I've owned. Not much to add. Just neat to find these American Classics.
Believe it or not there is another one in a field also close to me in town. It's white and rusting away, that's my next mission to find that car.

You never know what's out there.  That's awesome.  What's the story with the car?

I mean I never find stuff like that.... cough... cough... but that is an awesome find!

There are 2 Daytona's and a 70 Superbird within a 50 mile radius of eachother... all barn cars.  Shows you how common they are....

The 12 mile car now has 5400 miles on it.  The miles were put on by the folks who bought it in 1988.  Current owner John Hlivko and his wife Marilyn are shown with the car here at Meadowbrook Hall last June.   The gentleman on the right is Jack Smith who was a designer at Chrysler.

Sounds like you need to make a trip to your wife's work place with a Mopar shirt on pictured with a bunch of Superbirds... That's strike up conversation...  icon_smile_big

Naw don't be jealous.  Recently I met someone with a 70 chevelle SS 396/375, another guy with  2 Hemi chargers, and now the Bird.  And I've already been to each of their houses. What I'm re learning is, ask and talk cars to anyone that will listen and connections will happen.  I had mentioned this bird to my friend before.  It was just this time that it clicked to him.  slap

I know what you mean...I am in a town of 220 people and 2 blocks from me in a building sits an original petty blue superbird and on the other side there are two original numbers matching hemi roadrunners  drool5 they have been in there for over 15 years.The guy wont sell them and he has done nothing with them.He did let me in there to look at the SB when I was building mine.He was really cool about it but there his jewels.I also seen a 70 charger rt in there with 60000 miles on it.He center punched a pole with it 20 years ago and it has been there ever since.It really just needs a hood and grill and rad support and bumper.He wouldnt even talk about selling it either.

That's just amazing.  There really are so many of these still out there.  That is a good thing.  Kinda glad the crazy numbers are coming down, maybe more and more people will put them back on the road?

The other two ladies mentioned aren't original owners of the cars, but they do own them. Although in attendance wil probably be a few other original owners of wing cars. Its always a nice gathering of cars, and people.

Well it's not my car. It's her's and I hope it always stays that way. I'm just offering my time and skills to bring it back to the way it was. I'm calling her Monday and hoping to swing by and fill the tires and cover the car until spring. Hopefully we will build a trusting friendship and I can get the car road ready. I already told her the only thing I'm looking for is smile on her face when it's all done. Nothing more. As with most Aero cars I feel,  notworthy

I'm 100% Muscle car guy and love what I have. I'd love to own that car for the simple reason of knowing her and seeing it over 20 years ago and what the car is history related. But it's always been her's and always should. Hey I have a soul.
