Just how many of these are there?
Every time we turn around, it seems like someone has discovered a new private junkyard filled with Mopar vehicles, frequently in the North Carolina hills. Auto Archeology, one of our favorite YouTubers, has once again provided us with that, and it is certainly a delight. These Mopars are genuinely for sale, so it’s not just interesting to see all the vintage automobiles lying about.
See how one man uses a Ram SRT-10 in his junkyard by clicking the link.
These vehicles aren’t owned by some elderly man who adamantly maintains that he will restore each and every one of the 200 vehicles he has sitting on his property by himself. You read it correctly. You will need to contact Auto Archeology directly if you want to learn more about this collection’s owner’s plans for it. To let you know, he does provide the address at the conclusion of the video and includes a link to the junkyard’s Facebook page in the description.
You should know right away that every 1968, 1969, and 1970 Dodge Charger in the yard has been sold. If you’re fortunate enough to already have one, keep it in a very secure place since everyone wants one.
You’ll notice there are plenty of other desirable options like the Chrysler 300, Plymouth Road Runner, Dodge Dart, Plymouth ‘Cuda, Dodge Challenger, and so many more. Just watch the video and feast your eyes, because if you want to pick out all the classics shown you’ll be pausing the video and pouring over details a lot.
You’ll notice there are some non-Mopars scattered here and there, like the VW Beetle and Datsun Fairlady. But most of the rides in this private junkyard identify as Mopars.
Sure, these cars are rough, many with some surface rust, some with more. Body panels, taillights, interiors, engines, and other components are missing. But most look to be in solid condition. You might have to source parts elsewhere and perhaps drop in a crate engine or something from a junkyard, but you could really do something special with these rides.
