I purchased it from a Sicilian barber back in 1986 down in Kensington. It was a daily driver for 10 years when I lived in GA. But now it sits a lot, especially in the winter. That is not good. It is in a portable garage, but is still subject to invasion by mice, cold damp air, ect. Sitting for a car does more damage than anything else. The mice made a nest in the air cleaner housing last winter. ( I was wondering why it was flooding so easily!) This year I'm plugging the inlet with a tennis ball and using plenty of mothballs. Right now my financial situation is dictating putting my efforts into a preservation mode, rather than a restoration mode. But thats alright with me. It runs good, rides nice, and the body will hold up as long as I keep it away from salty roads. The secret to keeping a car running forever is changing the fluids, changing the fluids, (and changing the fluids) That includes oil, tranny, brake. It also helps to drive like a grandma. Sure, you can get it up to speed, but lay off the quick starts. Take it nice and smooth. Save the holeshots for a car you don't care about. I had a '72 Dodge Dart with a 225 slant six three on the tree once that I couldn't kill. The body and frame eventually rotted out deeming it useless. (torsion bars collapsed) But the engine ran like brand new when I drove it to the junkyard for the final time. There's a guy in town up here who drives a '67 Polara as a daily driver. The body leaves something to be desired, but the car as a whole is another example of a Mopar that will not die.
PS. I was able to squeeze 20 mpg out of it at 65 mph on the stretch from Maryland to Tennessee, interstate 81. Around town, the mpg goes South in a hurry.
