Description for Dodge Charger 1966

I have owned this original first year Charger for 13 years. I believe the car was originally from Utah and I purchased from a collector in New Mexico. It looks like in June 2004 (touch up paint can) the car was repainted and updated with Yearone or NOS parts. The current mileage shows 12638. I have no knowledge of actual mileage but the interior is original and suggests regular past use. I have driven the car regularly but only a few thousand miles in the last 13 years. The car has been in service and passed Texas vehicleinspection in each of these years. In the past year I had an excellent mechanic thoroughly go through the car and replace the fluids, clean out the carburetorand update the functioning headlight switches and motors. I was told the engine had been gone through in the past and runs great on unleaded gas. There is never any black or white smoke when the engine is started and revved up. The 383 engine is consistent with the VIN. The car has a four barrel and looks to be original. There is no 4 Barrel emblem on the air cleaner cover but there is on the fender. I am not sure what was original for the air cleaner cover but the valve covers are the original Mopar blue and not after market chrome covers like on many vehicles have.
Under the hood the engine is extremely clean the under bodyis also clean with no evidence of past rust. When I looked in the trunk you can see original green paint in excellent condition. It appears the carpet inside the car was replaced but the trunk carpet is clearly original and not falling about like most cars of this age. I have always kept the car in a garage and my guess is that all owners did the same. The chrome, aluminumtrim and the hub caps are in great condition. The spare tire might even beoriginal. I would not use it for a spare.
The paint job is good but not show quality. The original 110 Volt converter works well for the working dash lights. The gauges have faded over the years but all work. The fuel gauge is off a little (don't let it go to E). The Speedometer, Tach and Alt work great. The Oil pressure and temperature gauges but I have some doubts on the accuracy.The clock has worked in the past but not sure if it does now but the green dash light does work in the clock. I provided a link to a video.
I have tried to take a number of pictures in all the places to show the condition of the vehicle. I have also made a few videos so you can see the dash lights and headlights work. I have set a responsible reserve far lower than similarvehicles recently listed. Please ask any questions prior to bidding.
