    That’s a good find! I’d imagine with a factory 360 and a sunroof, it’s a rare combo!

    Wish it had better pics..
    Looks like old school 7080s w letter tire..
    Looks quite straight bumpers hood trunk etc..
    And whenever it dry docked someone put up window blockers and such..
    Can't make out tag..
    Still new to AZ, but looks to me like typical desert sun bake then surface rust or as the millennial say "patina"...

    So both the 76&77 Dodge had the ugly weird taillights?
    Wonder the difference between them...
    Still hope someone has guts and deep pockets and save it..

    So there is an interesting anomaly here in Southern New Jersey. The state has an area called the Pine Barrens. Pine trees and cedars with a very good draining sand. It is very unique soil. Like desert, but white and grey not yellow. Here is the best part. The pH is very unbalance and the anti-oxidizing properties are amazing. This So this black RR is not bad at all underneath sitting on the sand for a few years. We will get more pics once up on the trailer. Not saying it is a clean 40 yearold Plymouth, but it is decent and worth saving. More to follow on this one
