I was sent several responses to this advertisement and finally was contacted by the previous owner of this Dodge 880. I was very nervous entering the classic car market but what a payoff it has been! The car gets a lot of looks and the kids love the big seats.
Ive gone to several shows and have taken some trophies in the Mopar class. The lines on this car are incredible and it drives like a dream.
Over the 2011 winter months I will begin to work on the 383 and polish it up a bit.
I must admit it is very difficult to find some of the parts for this Mopar as to the rarity of these convertibles. I must put a plug in for the 1962 to 1965 Mopar website because the vendor list is outstanding when trying to find some parts and over the phone a lot of them are very helpful.
All in all, what a great trade; I think and I hope to enjoy this Dodge 880 many years to come!
