The sedan stood for years in the barn, but is well preserved

Craigslist posted an ad for the sale of a 1967 Dodge Charger found in a barn. For a golden car with a body almost untouched by time, the seller asks for 11,500 dollars.

Almost nothing is known about the history of the rarity: according to the seller, in the late 60s of the last century it was bought in the state of Arizona, after which it ended up in a barn in Nebraska, where it was discovered. From there, the car was transferred to Denver, Colorado, where it is waiting for a new owner.

Despite the years without movement and maintenance, the exterior of the Charger is well preserved: chips and plaque are visible on the paint only along the edge of the roof and on the edges of the stampings. The interior looks good too, save for the ripped upholstery of the driver’s seat and the missing radio. In addition, the buyer will have to make their own trunk key.

The Charger was originally equipped with a 5.2-liter V8 and an automatic transmission with an index of 727, but at some point the factory engine was replaced with an unknown one. According to the seller, the mysterious engine was manufactured in 1973, has a volume of 5.6 to 5.9 liters and powers the 53-year-old sedan without any problems.

On the odometer of a rarity, there are almost 129 thousand kilometers of run, but it is not known how much the car managed to run over after replacing the engine. The Dodge Charger comes with a set of original floor mats, seat repair foam and even a glove box liner.

Another 50-year-old Dodge was found in mid-August in one of the garages in New York. The 1969 Dart Swinger is even better preserved, with no rust in its red body. The vinyl roof and black leather interior are also still in excellent condition.
