Found something in the local boneyard....

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Curly, Oct 15, 2010.

  1. a 2 door '61 Dodge Phoenix. At first I didn't know what it was but from 50 feet away the roof line looked GREAT so I had to inspect. All the trim and badges were gone, but it had a distinctive "Dodge" look. The body wasn't too awful for an Ohio car but what really was cool was the dash/speedo.

    How rare are these cars? I don't think I have ever seen one.

    they are only rare because they were considered ugly by most and were crushed. But back in the 70s Studebakers were in the same boat and look at them now. You may just be on the cusp of the next big investment car craze.

    Are you saying Studebakers are in an investment stage?


    Did it look something like this?

    sarcasm but years ago no one wanted Studebakers as well as 37-38 fords as well as a lot of other vehicles that are now coveted as cool.

    Same here. I would say parts off of that thing would be worth a ton to the right person. They're all '61 specific parts.
