  • 1978 Magnum XE $5000

    I'm selling my Magnum. I bought it 9 years ago to use as a daily driver / beater, then I came to really like that car and felt bad about not treating it like a classic. So last year I put new metal in the quarter panels and the right front fender in front of the wheel well. The car is in primer now. It has a 360 with a 4 bbl Street Demon carb on a performer intake and electronic ignition instead of the lean burn. I added Sure Grip with a 3.55 ring and pinion (it's out of a Jeep since they kept using the 8.25 rear end until the 90s). The AC has been converted to r134-a. I have had trouble getting an AC clutch to work. I think I'm not getting it torqued on properly since I don't have the tool to hold it in place. I have some spare and NOS parts that will go with the car. I have an NOS set of headlight covers, a front turn signal and bumper trim. There is a spare door hinge, sport mirrors and climate control module. I also have the original intake a carb rebuilt by The Carb Shop.

    It does have rust under the vinyl roof on the passenger side and a tear in the driver's seat. I'm going to miss the car but it should have a home where it can be pampered and continue it's cool car life. I have to get a ... yech.. normal car to drive every day. Thanks for looking, let me know if you have any questions. I'm asking $5000.
