I'm the fourth owner of this vehicle. There was the original owner, then my grandfather, then my father, and now me as of a month ago. It sat in a barn for over a decade, but a good cleaning and a little tinkering (new tires, battery, plugs, wires, distributer cap and rotor) has her running as well as ever. Couple parts need replacing (driver door handle broke off at the bend and the windshield pillars are warped and chipping from past sun exposure. Otherwise it's in remarkably good shape from what I can tell. I'm excited to learn more about this car and hopefully find the parts I need to really make her shine. Glad to have found this community!

Very clean. The aftermarket wheels compliment it well too.

Nice car! New outside door handles are easy to find, non crumbling, non warped a-pillar trim can be tougher. You've come to the right site to find parts.:cool:

I'm hoping I might luck out and find some random bits here and there. It's actually the interior handle that snapped, I'm hoping the ease of finding still holds true.

I didn't know it came standard. I've been thinking it was an aftermarket addition by the original owner. That's awesome to learn, thanks!

It wasn't standard, I used to have an '82 Fifth Avenue and it didn't have it, didn't even have the plug. Easy to wire though, added one to my current '85 Gran Fury too, got the light from an '80s Ram Charger. Beautiful car by the way!
