For Sale: 1968 Dodge Monaco in Corona, California

$4,500 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

Here is an ultra rare 1967 Dodge Monaco 500 in exceptional unmolested condition! This was a CA desert car all of its life and the original owner stated that it had never left Southern California.

Only 2500 were ever built and most have rusted away to dust. (

This car has perfect pans, body, trunk. There is slight rust below the rear window but this is easily correctable.

Engine: 383 HP 4bbl -- Numbers Matching -- was loose when we acquired it! Before started we replaced distributor, carb (carter AFB), water pump, fuel pump, hoses, belts, vacuum lines, alternator, master cylinder, brakes, vacuum booster, radiator-- flushed and serviced transmission and the block. Started right up -- immediately -- not bad for 30+ years of sitting.

Car was in barn -- yes literally a barn -- since the late 70's but sadly towed out into the desert sun in 2003 -- this ruined the interior so......
We had front, rear seats re upholstered in original materials and pattern, door panels redone - matched original wicker as close as humanly possible, new headliner and carpet. There is more to do here but the $$$ stuff is done.

Tires also replaced -- date codes on bias plys were 1969 and 72 -- not much left of them but the codes.

All glass is GREAT and all window mechanisms were serviced and repaired (dirt removed -- there was half the Mohave in there) and they work great.

The paint.... If you love an honest patina this one might be a candidate for a clear coat and drive it away.

Here are the problems: The chrome door moulding on the passenger door is missing. and the right wheel lip moulding is damaged. Otherwise the car is complete (even has all 4 special edition hubcaps).

Runs and drives --

This is an exceptional vehicle and with a little work a real head turner.
