Owner Paul Bischof wanted a muscle car and only a Mopar would do (smart man). He was able to purchase this 1970 Charger R/T at the January 2015 Mecum Auto Auction in Kissimmee, FL. Once he got it home, he discovered he had one very highly optioned B body. The car is a low mileage survivor (short of some paint, brake pads, some belts and hoses, a ballast resistor, and one tail light bulb!). Find out more about his treasure at Mopar Magazine.

This stretch wagon was built by Chrysler in Rodderdam, used in Israel as a cab and, oh yeah, powered by a Perkins diesel. And you thought Charger Daytona’s were rare! Read more at Curbside Classic.
(Update: Not an actual Coronado which ended production in 1962. It’s a stretched Fury built by an unidentified party)
Do abandoned projects make the best projects? While certainly a diamond in the rough, at least much of the teardown seems to be completed in this 1970 Barracuda. The block is a 318 and used to be topped with a 2 bbl. Per the seller, “the hood, roof, and doors appear to be in very good condition. The floor pans are very nice, and frame rails are solid.” The rest of the car will need some work. With no reserve, it could go for a decent price. Follow the eBay bidding here.

Going to the Mecum auction in Dallas later this month is this Lemon Twist Cuda. No 3rd gen Hemi for this restomod though. It’s powered by a 650 hp 528 Hemi sucking the air/fuel mixture through dual 4-barrels and sending power to a Dana 60. The suspension is upgraded to an Alterkation front end combined with an air suspension system. Now, about that stance. Find more info at Mecum Auctions. More pics after the jump!
Gong on the block in September is this 1970 Plymouth Cuda 440 Six Pack with only 5644 miles. The bulk of that, 4000 miles, were put on the car from 1970 to 1983! Some options include a shaker hood, Track Pack, road lights and hood pins. It’s actually still sitting on it’s original Goodyear Polyglas tires. Find more info at Mecum. More pics after the jump!
“I know it’s not pretty to look at but it’ll getcha where you wanna go.” The owner of this 1970 Barracuda, while obviously suffering a huge setback, decided to make the most of it at a burnout competition. You can’t keep a good Mopar down! Find more info at BangShift. Video after the jump!
