Just joined.
« on: December 28, 2017, 01:42:15 »

Hi everyone new owner here. I was given a '87 Fifth Avenue by my son last week that he bought for me from FastandFuryus. I will likely be stalking round for repair tips. I bought my last mopar, a '81 Diplomat 2 door non-ac car, in 1987 and have kinda missed it ever since getting rid of it so this one is just fine. There is a loosely wound plan for performance upgrades but for now I'll be enjoying it as is but I'll try to keep y'all posted.

Welcome to the forum!

The search option and/or archives (we should still have 'em, right???) are your friend...lots of ways to tweak copious amounts of fun from the ol' M-body platform!!!

Thanks y'all. Forums are really not my thing but we'll be around some, mostly searching for info but also sharing from time to time as improvements worth noting are made.

Good move keeping the white walls. They look so good on Fifth Aves.

Thanks y'all it's a nice body for sure. The interior is complete for the most part but needs upholstery work desperately and we have a plan for that. I'm not partial to the whitewalls but they were on it already and match the 60's Plymouth center caps and rings well so they may be here to stay. After they're burnt up I'll see what's out there in the size I have picked out.
