1974 ‘space’ duster (lots of pics) $1200 obo

I can't keep flip flopping any longer. I have no means to do this car the way it should be (how I want it anyway...)
The space is needed in my garage anyway, I can use it to make money.

1974 plymouth 'space' duster (back seat folds down).
original 318/904 8 1/4 car, it now has a 360

the engine was installed with a balance adapter and retains the 904 tranny. It also has an edelbrock performer 318 4 barrel dual plane intake. i was told the motor had a reconditioned crank installed before the motor was installed, along with a new double roller timing chain (that's verified).

the car is very solid, the usual though, floor pans and some light patching in the trunk. quarters, rockers, drip rails, fenders, frame, inner fenders, all very solid. the car has been repainted at least twice, and not very well either time.
i have the back seat (pretty good shape) and some parts of the interior, but the front seat(s) are long gone, no carpet, headliner is iffy (hard head liner), dash pad is done for. i CAN get a bench seat for the front, but i can't promise it will match.
the tail panel also has a little bit of work on it, it has been packed with fiberglasss around tail lights.

the car needs some wiring love, the previous owner though it needed to be rewired, so he started to install a painless harness, very shabby i might add, and never finished it, i have since pulled it out.

it does not run in current form, but it has run since i have owned it (about a year ago it ran), the motor is surely good, its just missing a few key elements (engine wiring, carb, unknown condition of distributor, it worked before.)

it was an A/C car, but that stuff gone with the seats.
it also needs an idler arm (i doubt thats a deal breaker though ;-) )

i know the pictures are kind of crummy, i cant really get a lot of good ones because my garage is crammed up...

The car is located in Dallas Georgia
