Anyone want some American muscle for the garage?

This is a 12 year build that was done piece by piece as time/ money allowed.

Has way too much to list but I can answer any serious inquiries so PM me any questions.

It's a small block 360 with hemi horsepower.
A stock 426 hemi put out 425 HP from the factory......this little small block put out 441 HP on the first Dyno pulls with a crappy carb and little tweaking.

It is estimated now at roughly 450 or better.

11.0-1 compression 360,j heads, Harland sharp roller rockers, big .555 " solid comp cam, Holley strip dominator single plane intake, Modified Holley 870 street avenger with electric choke amd vac secondaries.A-833 four speed trans, Mopar 8-3/4 sure grip rear with 4.11 gears, moser axles, SS springs, manual disk brakes, manual quick ratio AAR steering box, boxed lower control arms, heavy duty torsion bars.

Custom paint and interior, but not way over the top.

The car is streetable and has good manners, never overheats and has less than 5000 restored miles on engine and car.

It is set up for street or strip and can really scream with race fuel and timing dumbed down with a holly double pumper installed. ( I removed that set up) for better and cheaper street manners.

It would probably run high 11's at the strip but I never raced it.....too expensive of a hobby.

it's kicked some serious butt at car shows and always draws a crowd.....the ladies love it by the way.

It's been in several car magazines but I don't like to register it for trophy shows....kinda lame if you ask me although its won several.

I'm asking $30-k cash or trade for property in North Georgia.

Vehicle located in Georgia 30004.

Sweet ride! 400+hp out of small block is nice! I don't know about 30k though seems a little high for non numbers notchback. Maybe in the spring when us northerners are looking for solid southern cars that can plant your backside? I had a buddy that had a 69 fastback with a heavily modded 340 that went in the 9's and I'm pretty sure he sold his for 25k.
Either way nice to see another Mopar man on here and good luck!

Considering I have over $45 k invested I am making a big sacrifice.
I'm in no hurry to sell just putting it out there.
Yeah I can't vouch for your buddies car Or why he sold it for his price.......that's his deal that needs to stay in his ad.
