Especially for what I got it for. I got out of the navy back in 96. Found it sitting at an abandoned house no hood, no engine or trans. Left my number with the neighbor and I got a call about 4 month later. $500 plus all the spare parts to go with it. Needless to say, I jumped on it. It was originally built with a 400/auto but the guy before me had a 318 in it. I built the harness I needed. A guy in Philly was parting out a 78 Cordoba with a 73,000original mile 400 auto for $100; for another $50 he delivered it. Had alot of pride in that car since I kinda put it together. Absolute blast to drive except for the 4 wheel drum brakes...but I was gathering parts to rememdy that. Unfortunately design on a big block Mopar puts the coil right in front of the carb next tot he fuel line. My engine caught fire. I put it in storage to fix it later, but everywhere I got stationed kept me from it. Oh well, maybe some day. A guy from upstate NY came all the way to south Jersey to get it.
