Reggie i hear everything your saying - why ?? and then why ?? and why again ? I wish i knew, i'll know more when i go look and take lots of pics. An ' 82 without rust thru is a good find at 143k on the clock but it's had/has some issues.
Not major but issues just the same, and i think for an asking price of $1.000.00 i should not have many if any issues
to deal with. Reverse light does not work, not earth shattering but not inspectable either - no plate no drive. Along with the usual rear light probs we've almost all had or have. Brain box replaced with an ' 87 filth ave box - i belive i was told.
That box does support lock up but is the speed sensor on the speedo shaft there? probably not, but i could deal with that.
I think it's possible to " graft " one in somehow, the holes might be there for it's mounting in the plastic. On and on.
And dodge dip your are so right about that, put what belongs in there back in there to be sure. It will make MY life so much easier. Instrad of trying to figrue this mess out. Maybe this a really good thing and i do not know it yet.
But from first feeling it's not. I've talked with a fellow mopar fan at work and he can't make sense of it either.
I'm in reality buying someone else's project unfinshed, i do not think it's worth $1,000 since i have to do so much to get it right. Maybe it is right, i can not make any judgements until i put MY eyes on it. So sunday next it is. Camera in hand.
