Private group tour reveals Mopar and Chevy muscle cars

In a way, the United States continues to show more and more great cars. For whatever reason, these cars now spend their days rust free. YouTuber Heart of Texas Barn Finds and Classics found Chuck’s Mopar Collection. According to the YouTube channel, this set includes the Roadrunner, Satellite, Charger, and even a Chevelle.

The same YouTuber owns a C2 Corvette in good condition. The correct car color is red. The car has a brown color that is close to pure. An early C2 model, it had chrome fenders, not the less attractive rubber fenders. The C2 came with a range of engines including the 327, 396, and 427. Usually, such a well-maintained Corvette would feature in an article of its own. However, a group of ChevroletDodge and Plymouth models are a much more interesting topic.

Hidden in the Texas are the Camaro Z28, Road Runner and Charger.

What cars are in the group?

Very few of these cars are in perfect condition, which is a shame. But when you’re putting together a large group, it’s hard to stay on top of all their maintenance. The owner of the set also has a 1970 Dodge Challenger with a 383. According to the owner, it is in original factory condition with all the trimmings including the power steering. This particular car is not in the yard but instead in a workshop receiving new paint. The YouTuber paid the yard owner to see if any of the cars were for sale, but nothing is currently on display. All of these vehicles, although not purebreds are his “children”. The wrecking trucks Charger and Road Runners may be offered for sale if the right price is right for the owner.

This collection contains more than just the traditional classics of American automobile history. A few different locations are dotted with regular cars like an old Chevrolet pickup.

What Mopar cars are in this group?

Upon further examination, the Road Runner is in dire straits. With burning tires, they settle to the ground. However, it does have a motor. The Road Runner was the tough entry-level car within the brand. The engine lineup included the 383, the more common and larger the 426 and 440 that tread on the toes of B-body cars. There are not many parts of the car’s interior anymore. Lacking seats, a dashboard and door covers, the car is open to the elements. However, much of this appears to be rust-free, quite unlike the car’s exterior. The rear of the car has flared arches. Whatever the case, the car needs a lot of work.

The road runner group is in better shape. This example in small camouflage with the upper body of a 1969 Chevy Blazer, conceals the coupe body style. Instead, it looks like a station wagon. This car has the 318 engine under the hood of the 440, which has a much larger intake to allow the 440 engine to breathe freely.

Another special car in this group is the third generation Dodge Charger. Introduced in 1971, the car complied with new regulations that the more popular second-generation car couldn’t achieve. Available in everything from a 225 V6 to a 440 V8, the Charger came in a wide range of specifications.

This particular example is in red with a tan contrast roof. Inside is way better than the runner’s way. Not only the seats remain, but also most of the upholstery. Unfortunately for the charger at some point it did suffer some damage. The left side of the body was severely damaged. This vehicle is delistable and is now for parts only. According to Classic, an aggregator of classic car prices, in roadworthy condition, this vehicle will sell for an average of $44,442.

What are the Chevrolet cars in the collection?

In another section of the yard is a Chevy pickup truck. Bucket rusts full on the outside, there are signs that it was once a scallop paint job. Just like the charger, the example now is for parts with missing parts like the steering wheel. The YouTuber reports that someone modified the cabin to have a moon roof now. Next to this truck sits an old Maverick and a Camaro Z28. From the third generation Camaro, the pony car without a production year. In production for a decade from 1982, Chevrolet stood out among the muscle car group of the 1970s.

One vehicle that is explicitly marked as not for sale is the Chevelle. The 1971 model year is the second generation of General Motors’ A-body car. This example is not an SS-branded car. However, with the model only lasting five years in production, it’s still a very rare car. The 1971 cars received a middle-aged facelift, with General Motors replacing the car’s front end with a wider grille. Just opposite the Chevelle sits the Blazer pickup. Without a motor or hood, its best parts now live another life as part of building another gearhead.
