History
DSO Detroit, manufactured in Dearborn, rust was probably from 1967 on. "Restored" Victoria British Columbia approximate year 2005, restoration fraudulent in terms of body repair, phrase "certified rust free car". Rust areas were covered with thin tin plate welded, feathered into the floor pan, firewall, and wheel wells. New rear fenders were laid over existing (which were cut off mid-way down, making an inside trunk seam) then feathered back in at top edges, exterior. Floor, wells, firewall painted heavy thick semi-gloss black (POR15 ?).
C code. Anything can be done with it, provided good judgement, increase its value.
Factory configuration: "Challenger" V8 2-bbl, 3-on-floor standard manual synchromesh, 2.80. Standard interior (Parchment and Ivy Gold). Armstrong power steering. When I found out the true condition of the body...it's in shop...still. Active project.
