Re: 1964 Plymouth "before" car



Good point. I admit that was my thought too.

I'm also reminded about a 1965 Plymouth Fury 2 door I saw in a self-serve (Pick A Part type) junkyard around 1999. The Plymouth had  just been put in the available to part out row of cars. Prefect paint and trim, like new factory interior. Big Block. Once the place put the car in the yard it was immediately a "parts only" car. They would not sell it complete. I assumed that, tragically, the  Plymouth's owner died and the heirs just junked "that old car" after the owner dearly departed.

Also, on the other hand, the supply of donor cars is also getting scarcer, so what people start with may resemble what we years ago would junk. Like the action of restoring this one:
