Uggh. Those cars look eerily similar to several in the El Paso pick a part 8 - 10 years ago. Near impossible to sell much of anything - due to short window of availability, and logistics. The gold coupe would have been nice to have to fix up as a daily. But, have to imagine there is all sorts of nice stuff, under that white vinyl top. The grille is different than a '77 grille I had, a different model, or is it a '76?
Yeah wow, I also like the non A/C and manual discs.I think the 4 door is a 76 and the Century is also 1976
man, both of them waaaay too nice to be in junkyards, how does this even happen in 2021? I see absolute crap in and around ATL on CL and FB marketplace, with terrible rust, and folks think they have a 3 to 5 K car. Someone actually taking decent care of these to last 45 + years....
yeah, the Century's had the waterfall grill, don't really know if anything else was different on them vs the more expensive Regals.
I see worse looking cars on my daily commute.
Atlanta’s PAPs are full of crap like the background-red Grand Ams and a lot of GM 3.6 timing chain victims like the black Cadillac. (Plus every Audi A4 ever built).
The Chev built 60 degree V-6 was weaker and less durable than the '89-'93 Buick 90 degree unit. Have not experienced 3.6 failings, that engine was also used in the Rendezvous SUV, correct?
I think they’re all part of the Chevy 60* V6 family but the timing chain issue started about ‘04 with the DOHC version that also had variable valve timing. The long chain combined with long oil change intervals and supposed bad metallurgy means rattles, CELs and big money.
Oh Man, I wish those were 73 or 74 Regals! I'd be on my way to pick those up right now!! Larry.
I'm going to try and get the 8.5 rearend out of this car when it's available to the public
This was a sneak peak
I grabbed a rough 68 from Allentown Pa
I need to score these 2 68's local to me
To make 1 decent one
Pick and pulls around here do nothing farther back than 2000…..sucks!
Are you telling us its Spring ?
I was expecting something like this -
Just a single 77 regal
This car wasn't in a junk yard .
I saw it on a recent trip to Erie
It's 1 of 40 i believe
