GREET­INGS FROM THE GRAVE

Mopar Muscle - - Contents -

What made this car even rarer was the fact that it was Tor Red and fea­tured an N96 on the orig­i­nal fender tag, aka a Shaker Hood.

My client pur­chased this car back in 2008 af­ter it had trav­eled the pop­u­lar Mopar show cir­cuit: Chrysler’s at Carlisle, Mopar Na­tion­als, Mopars at the Strip, etc. The gen­tle­man who took it to the shows was du­ti­fully try­ing to sell it, he wanted $75,000 — as-is! Which is why he brought it back home to south­ern Ore­gon. Ev­ery­thing he had for the ve­hi­cle, in­clud­ing the shell, fit in the back of a pickup and a small util­ity trailer. This car was dead.

Af­ter drag­ging it around with us for nearly a decade while we pro­duced the show around it, we fin­ished the restora­tion and shared its un­veil­ing with the world on episode 13 of sea­son seven. Watch for this car some­where in North Carolina at the lo­cal shows, where I’m sure the new own­ers are lov­ing ev­ery minute of their part in Grave­yard Carz his­tory.
