It's your car. But a color change on a Mopar is a big deal - like you might as well restore it big. Jambs, engine bay, trunk... It all has to come apart for it or it looks like carp and a quickie deal. Ultimately when you sell it, the buyer will use it against you. If you want a real Hi Impact color - and you have interest in selling it down the road - find one and buy it. Otherwise either do it half ass and lose a bunch of value, or spend a boatload, do it right, and never get that back when you sell it.
If done "properly" a color change for a green or brown type color can actually add value.
but thats just a 74 dart not an original 340 demon.. huge difference in value. .
personally i think it would look great F7 green... the go green or lime green is way too over done in my opinion.. will it kill the value? hard to say. being a 340 car the ones that bring the most would be as original as possible in most cases. but F7 would also turn some buyers off the lime green may open up to more buyers. guess in the end its up to you but i'd keep the F7 if it was mine...
Agreed. But does the cost get reflected in that sales price? I can't see the value going up $10K+ from a color change, especially with a guy that doesn't care about originality. That was my point. Do it half-assed - loose money. Do it right - never recoup the investment. I'd rather drive a green on green on green car.
I don't think a color change would hurt the value as much as an incorrect engine for instance in this case. What makes a car valuable in the first place? The trim tag, not so much what engine or tranny, or even color it has when you buy it. Would a 68 or 69 Hemi Cuda be less valuable if someone put a small block in it? Not likely.
If I did it I would do it right, I hate people who black out the engine bay and trunks on a Mopar
I like that with the black stripe but the triple green with the white stripe looks odd.
i'll bet the white stripe looks great. hell put a black stripe on it then.. thats a lot easier to change then the color..
I think it will hurt the value, and if it's numbers matching with stripes. I would definitely keep the original color. Rare and beautiful in any color
Have you ever seen the lime green one that goes to Mineral Beach ? 340 and four speed. Very nice.
What is wrong with triple green? My son drives one, and everyone likes the color combination: The world needs a lot more green cars, especially nowadays.... ....ask Greta!
A body values are in the toilet........cant even give them away. No trunk mat? Cool car but I'll pass!! Dusters and darts are not getting any money whatsoever. 90 percent of people are lowballers.
I would research the whole car at this point. If that's the correct fender tag and it does have D34 as the transmission code, the car is not an original H code car. D34 designates the 904 transmission which 340 cars never came with. I would get to the bottom of this before you buy.
I own a true FJ6 car and there a few things to consider. Demon 340's are somewhat scarce and originality helps in value. I can tell you with the FJ6 unless you have a lot of black to break up the color it is god awful to look at, it is just way too much. F7 with white stripes would look really good IMO, and you won't see another one parked next to you which is nice. As others have said, you would need to do the engine compartment, trunk, jambs and all and is that really all worth it. At the end of the day it's your car and if you just aren't going to be happy with it because of the color you need to do what you have too.
very hard to say...but some restomods are bringing more money than the numbers cars at BJ
Live & learn. ;-)
And...... I love green. I would keep it original myself.
So what does that mean? I see the H. Are you saying 340 cars came with 904s?
D31 is a 904 D34 & D36 are 727
That's not what I'm finding online.......BUT this is also something I know very little about so I sure as HELL aint arguin about it.
See D34 at http://www.hamtramck-historical.com...shipDataBook/1972/72_Dodge_Dart_Demon0020.jpg
D32 is a 727 hd for a big block
Maybe that's where I was gittin kornfrooshed.
