This well optioned 1964 Dodge Custom 880 convertible was purchased Horace E Dodge Jr, son of Dodge co-founder Horace E Dodge, as a present for his mother Anna Thompson Dodge, the widow of Horace E Dodge. Now that is a provenance that any Dodge vehicle would be proud of! Read the story at The New York Times. More pics after the jump!
BangShift has found this clean but dusty (is that even possible?) 1969 Fury III on Craigslist. This car is very unusual in that, while the Fury III was near the top of the Fury lineup, it’s equipped with a slant 6 and a manual three speed! Chrysler’s six was a war horse but in a 1969 C-body? Can you say sluggish acceleration? Find the original Craigslist ad here. More pics after the jump!
The Charles Kee Estate Sale was May 8th and 9th in Brothers, Oregon and it was a blast to attend. They had 1000 boxes of parts for sale and 200 cars, most of it Mopar! I was there from the front lines bidding and buying parts along with a bunch of other Mopar fanatics. The cars ended up going for pretty cheap, most at not much more than scrap prices with a few exceptions. The parts were a little more expensive but lots of treasures were to be found in the hundreds and hundreds of banana boxes that Charles Kee used to store stuff. It is hard to show the scale of how many parts were here but we tried with this picture.
The next car we are featuring looks like it was one of Charles Kee’s personal cars he wanted to keep. It is a 1962 Chrysler 300 2-door with a big block engine. This is a really nice car, and like many others, Charles Kee put blankets over the dash and seats to preserve them from the desert sun.
Miss our last post on the Kee collection? James G. Murphy will hold the estate sale of Charles Kee on May 8 and 9 in Brothers, Oregon. Charles has a huge collection of Mopar cars and parts and we got the opportunity to go out and look at some of the stuff. Read more about the 1966 Chrysler Newport in this collection after the jump! (We want to apologize that some of the pictures in this post are not very good–it was 35 degrees and raining with a 30 MPH wind when we took these, our camera got some water on it a few times).
