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?

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

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.
