Junkyard find 1987 Chrysler Fifth Avenue
« on: May 10, 2021, 08:43:35 »

I found this amazing Fifth Avenue in a junkyard Moye's Auto Parts in Holly Hill Florida. She's a real 52k mile, one owner, COMPLETELY rust free North Carolina car. I seriously felt guilty about taking a few parts I needed...they said they'd take $1,500. for the whole car, if anyone is looking for a nice M-body in Florida this is it! Someone please save this car!

The paint is dull, but the body is straight

Interesting car: power passenger seat, but no full size spare

Check out how nice the steering wheel is, and even that cheap plastic glovebox strap isn't broken!

For me: the trunk lock, trunk weather striping, headliner, floor insulation and the floor mats. Someone before me got the a,b, and pillars, and the other day someone bought the a/c controls, and the turn signal lever.

Well, it looks as though there are too many parts already removed. I was considering buying it and having it shipped to Australia. Should have acted sooner.  I have a beautiful gold '85 Fifth Avenue and a '77 Lebaron.  You had a police sway bar that I was looking forward to having. Roger.

If you're going to go thru the expense of buying one to ship you'd be better off getting a nicer one that doesn't have paint problems. When it's weathered like that it means the vinyl roof has also been drying out for years along with other rubber parts.
