My 1964 Dodge is neither barn or garage find, since I found it at Roe Hoyles Motors in Galt now Cambridge, in 1964, and bought it then.
I heard many people from time to time say “I had one of them, and I wish I’d have kept it”, well I decided way back then not to ever sell it.
It sat for 7 years at one point when I first went into real estate (since it just isn’t a real estate car)
It was my only car for 13 years, so it certainly wore down, and went through a couple of cosmetic body jobs.
In 2005 I decided to send it in for major restaration, and after new front clip, fenders, doors, floor, rear clip, top, upolstery, I pretty well had my original car back. Over the last 6 years I have improveed on the parts not done in the major restoration, mainly chrome, dash, door panels, etc.
I put between 2000 and 5000 MILES on it per year, and my wife and I enjoy it emensely.
