I just picked up this car as well as an 84 SE as a package deal. I got this one home tonight and I'll get the other this weekend. It's an 84 base model with a 4spd and 100k on the clock. The car is in super nice shape...last on the road in 94 and has been sitting in dry storage ever since. I got it home with enough daylight left to at least hose it off and hit it with a sponge and some dish soap quick. It looks like it will buff out pretty darn nice. Here are some pics:

Thanks...that's exactly what it is, a clean start. I am going to work on getting it running and replace any wear items that may have frozen up from sitting. I'll drive it with the duke for a while as a commuter, but I plan on doing a swap at some point...probably 3800 for reliability and simplicity. I already ordered everything to do the lebaron brake conversion. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the other car yet. I will probably sell/part it after I swap out some parts.

Did some work on the car today. It has a seized up clutch slave and the fuel pump is toast from sitting. I got it to fire up with a little gas down the throttlebody though...seems like she'll be a runner!
