to let sit for a week is fine , but .... this car is 30 years old and has only 14 k on it and the seller says EVERYTHING except the battery and tire are original . so it has had to sit for long extended peroids of time !!! that is not good for any car !!

if it had more of a realistic mileage on it say in the 100k plus then thats different .

you say you park yours for a week or so at a time , heres an experament for you to do , next time you let it sit for that amount of time or longer , take a lookat the front disc'c for the brakes , i will gaurantee you they will be rusted over.

so imagine how the rest of the parts look on the inside of the one this person is trying to seel with 14 k on it

my dads friend had a beautifull 56 dodge pick up sitting in his garage for years , when he wanted to repaint and restore it , we had to replace every piece of rubber hose , every gasket , and rebuild the motor and trans because of the build up in it . let alone the amount of rust and corosion that built up inside of the frame .

it is a beautifull car as i said but for it to have that low miles on it , and the age it is , and most of all what it is , after all it is just a dodge , royal monaco yes , but just a dodge , nothing fancy about them , they were just a car here .

i say this nicely and not to hurt any one's feelings , but if it wasnt for the blues brothers using a monaco in the movie these cars would have been forgotten years ago .

Saw this car on Ebay a little bit ago...Thought I would share the link.
$8000 ? Woo, a little high for my taste but the car does look really good...Wasn't this car listed before for a big price?

This is the same Florida car that sparked debate over the price over the winter, I believe... '74 front end grafted onto a '75 Royal. My brother talked with the guy and though it's been a bit out of his price range too the car sounds very solid and very well done. Certainly worth considering at least!

Oh yeah, I remember now. That car did cause quit a debate and hopefully it wont again...
It does look solid but after selling 5 Bluesmobiles myself, I have never even considered a price higher that $4500...That's just me though and I aint no professional...
BTW, I am shipping my 1976 Monaco to the winning bidder off ebay next week. Total selling price on it was $4000 plus shipping...
I aint complaining...I got a sweet 74 now and I believe I am retiring from buying and selling these things unless I break my leg and can't perform again! lol
Peace, Justin

Interior can be changed if you're determined enough.

The car does indeed look in awesome shape, and it is more deserving to be turned into a Bluesmobile than many of the vehicles that are turned into Bluesmobiles.

WOW. That exterior is pretty nice! You'd almost hate to change it. I can understand where you're coming from.

Looks wonderful! It looks like a Royal, so some minor cosmetic changes to make if she's converted (rear tail lights, hood ornament, name plate on the C pillar to remove) but beautiful looking car!

I was kinda of put off by the guy selling his monaco in Flordia on Ebay last week. I was bidding on it, he had a buy in now for 8000.00, late at nite he lowered the buy it now and someone bought it. I figured he had a buyer, didn't want to get dinged by ebay for the 8grand and lowered it to 7800.oo and the guy who bought it paid something on the ebay side... Kinda sneeky for the folks that were bidding on it...... Bad taste in my mouth for those kind of ebayers..... Of course the guy that was selling his car will come on here and defend what he did and make me look like a ass for rating him out....

I talked to the seller about the Florida Bluesmobile. He seemed sincere enough. Builds racing cars for a living, and IS a fan. The car is everything he says it is. If I had the money, I would've bought it. I called him just after he pulled it the first time. He just wants it to go to a good home, and wants to get his money out of it. Just my two cents worth...
