GREETINGS FROM THE GRAVE
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.
