Maybe the best GT left!
The most rare of the Magnums. Dodge only made the first generation Magnum for two years – 1978 & 1979. It was initially made to replace the dying Charger as the B-Body muscle car for Dodge. However, Dodge got cold feet over the radical front end styling and hung onto the slow selling Charger for 1978, just in case. The Magnum was a big hit for 1978 and the Charger was dropped. Only about 5% of the Magnums were the GT model, which had heavy duty suspension, a engine tuned look dash and console plate, and big wheel flares.
As the 1979 Magnums started to trickle out there was an Arab Oil Embargo / Gas Crisis, with long gas lines for expensive gas – and the day you bought you gas was based on your license plate. This killed Magnum sales and the B-Body was forever dropped, to be replaced by the smaller J-Body (Stretched Aspen/Volare) Mirada.
The 1979s are far more rare than the 1978s, and the 1979 GTs are rarer than Hen’s teeth. My first new car was a Magnum, and I’ve owned over 20 since. This is the only GT I’ve ever seen in person!
I bought this car in 1999, from the broker of the original owner in Georgia. I replaced the 85mph speedometer with 67000 miles with a very expensive NOS Police Certified 140mph speedo.
This car is loaded with the E58 Police motor (360Ci 4bbl) with dual exhaust. The original plastic thermoquad carb was warped (as most do in time), and so I decided to go for Performance with an Edelbrock Performer Aluminum 4bbl Intake and 600cfm Performer carb. I also swapped the flaky stock ignition with a Mopar Performance ignition box and distributor. The car goes like a Raped Ape – well for a Disco Era Muscle Car. See below video I made today.
The paint and leather are in great condition. The headlights are clear. The intermittent wipers work, as does the power windows and locks. The car has leather wrapped steering, pedal dress up and floor console. The AC blew cold last month, but not as cold today with 96 degrees. I assume there might be a O-Ring leak as it was cold for about 4 months since I last recharged it. There are no chips in the glass or cracks in the dash. The photos speaks for the car. It is most likely the very best GT left on Earth. I wouldn’t think twice of driving this car cross country.
I love this car, and the only reason I’m selling is that in my mid-60s, it’s time to downsize my life. I have 31 cars and need to sell about 3/4 of them. Those ready to sell now can be found at www.DaveSchultz.com. It is located in Beasley TX. The reason for the Georgia tags is I never titled in my name. It’s been a museum car, driven occasionally to keep gas fresh and car exercised. The Georgia title has the buyer’s name blank.
This car is a rare time capsule and well worth the FIRM PRICE OF:
I just placed an order on a 2020 Entegra Cornerstone, which will take 3-5 months to come in. I’m offering my 2017 Entegra Anthem for trade-in plus 10% (the sales tax savings I lose for not trading in).
This year and model with this mileage 31,000 is retailing for $290K and street price is usually $279K. Retail for new 2019 is $563,999 and street price is about $400,000. https://www.entegracoach.com/build-price/
This baby is loaded. 4 TVs, King Size Air Number Bed, Sofa air bed, Fire Place, outside Cooler/Freezer to keep your beer ice cold, Big man size shower, dishwasher, washer and dryer, aqua hot system, in floor heating, HD TV satellite dish, china cabinet, and more. 450hp Cummins and Alison 3000 transmission easily has you passing the big trucks up hills with the cruise on.
I’ve had 11 motorhomes, and this one is the most comfortable to drive. I pull a 32′ stacker trailer with two full size 60’s cars and golf cart easily at 75 mph.
I take to the factory in Indiana (good place to spend a couple of days sightseeing) every fall to winterize, do a PDI and fix whatever they find wrong. I have a mobile motorhome mechanic come change oil and service generator every 7500 miles for $330.
Frankly the front air doesn’t cool real well right now, but the other two keeps the coach cool without it. I was going to have the factory service this Fall. I’m pricing this cheap enough to where you can fix it and still be way ahead of of the street price. I priced so low so I can still use until the new one comes in. I just need a $1,000 deposit to hold it for you until then. If not sold under those conditions, I’ll just trade in for the $240,000 and save the sales tax on that amount. They’ll turn around and advertise for $290,000 and sell for $279,000.
Engine, transmission and structure still under warranty.
No Passes Since Restoration. Perfect For “No Prep”
This car is currently in “Turn Key” form, and I have about $70K in building this car, but all of the calls I was getting were wanting to put their own drive train in, so I’ll pull the engine and transmission and sell ready for your drive train. I’ll leave all electronics including the ignition box. I’ll leave the radiator. All I’ll take is the motor, transmission, torque converter and Flex plate.
This car features:
- Basecoat/ Clear Coat that was clear sanded
- Dana Rear End Narrowed for 17″ Slicks
- Tube Chassis by Jeffers
- Fiberglass front Clip
- Fiberglass Doors
- Fiberglass Deck lid
- All Lexan Windows
- Kirkey seats
- All Electronics and MSD 7AL ignition
- Rack & Pinion Steering
- Fabricated Dash Filled with gauges
- NOS Bottles and Rack
- Aluminum Radiator
- Cheatah 3-Speed Shifter
- Driveshaft for Mopar BB & 727
- Fuel Cell
- Dual 12-volt batteries
- Electric Fan
- Fourwheel disc Brakes
You simply drop in you Engine, transmission and converter – fill the bottles and head to the track. You couldn’t build this car for twice the $30K I want.
I have a signed title from the Seller with open buyer, but I never titled. I’ll sell on Bill of Seller and give you the Title I was given.
I’ve given you all of the information and detailed photos I have. For a low price of $30k anyone who knows anything about drag racing has all the information needed to either be the first to jump all over this car or move on. I expect the car car to go quick. I’m told the car with an iron head/block 440 and a 7727 weighed 2300 pounds with a 180 pound driver. The car is set up for someone 5’10” to 6’4″. I’m 5’11” and my son is 6’3″ and we both fit comfortably.
The car is located at my race shop in Beasley, TX, which is 40 miles south of Houston on I 69. I’m generally at my shop Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays 8-4.
I’m way over the bag limit on street and race cars and only want to trade for dead Presidents. If you know someone or a group that might be interested in a Superman Deal at a Clark Kent price, please a link to this.
Original Condition by 2nd Owner. It can only be original once!
About 15 years ago, I bought this car (through a broker) from the original owner. It has the original Spanish Gold Metallic paint in very good condition and the original interior is excellent. The car runs and drives great and I’d not have a hesitation of driving that car anywhere.
The one deviation from stock was that I replaced the cast iron 2bbl on the rare for Diplomat 360ci, with an Edelbrock Performer Intake and Performer Carburetor. I also replaced the Leanburn ignition with a Mopar Performance. It really woke up the performance.
This is a very nice original car that drive and rides as if it were new. I love the car and hate to part with it, but I’m trimming my collection down to move to a smaller place. This is one of my cars that has to go.
In the Swamp, there are two Standards of Justice. The MSM is an important part of of propagating this standard, and Conservative indifference is as complicit.
The Gestapo decides what posts stay, and block you from posting to any page or group if they disagree with your opinion. They then call it violating their community standards. It doesn’t have to have nudity, hate or anything else distasteful. Only needs a Liberal snitch to report to a Socialist Gestapo and for that high boot goosestepping member to not like it. Speech on Facebook is a one way street.
The Mueller Agenda
and who are they selling that information too?
No only does Facebook do the work of the Liberal Swamp by stifling the posting privileges of anyone posting a Pro-Trump or Anti-Liberal post, they’re reading every word of everything you’ve posted or communicated using their messenger – and scoring you. They know more about you than the NSA, CIA and FBI combined, and they make the ‘Deep State’ look like rookies on how they monetize it by selling your info to any entity targeting your assigned scores, or punish those posting to the Right of the Castros.
Do yourself a big favor and Google the topic of Facebook Spying on its Users. It is an evolving story that has picked up a lot of steam this month. Facebook’s power, corruption and political influence is far greater than most people can comprehend. They’re as much of the Swamp as the Socialist and Communist politicians they’re working hand in hand with.
Their Primary income source is not ads, its selling your Scored Data. Wake up and demand that they be held accountable for their promotion of the Socialist agenda from Soro’s Funded Groups, while punishing those speaking up against Socialism. Pull your heads out of the sand and speak up about how you won’t tolerate this abuse and corruption.
You took out the loan, you need to pay it back. The government needs to get the taxpayer out of the Student loan business!
Clean lake house garage and boat, finished dying seats in Screamin’ Woody, and take the Petty Tribute to get shot with high build primer.
To be honest, I didn’t get as much done at the shop as usual – as I spent a week at my lake house.
And then it was family time for Memorial Weekend. My wife was across country visiting her sister, but my kids and grand-kids came by to keep me company.
Back at the shop
I loaded up Petty Tribute car to take to get a gallon of high fill primer sprayed on it. It goes to the wrapper in Indiana when I race in Bowling Green (Hot Rod Reunion) in about 10 days.
Got my stacker trailer and a couple of cars ready and listed for sale.
Other than that, it was mostly routine car maintenance, like getting my daughter’s truck washed and oil changed today.

- Navagation and Premium Stereo
- Alloy Wheels
- Recent Brakes, Tires and Front End Alignment.
- Just Serviced

I bought this car new and its received the best of care. I was letting one of my daughters drive it, but she’s now in a family way and I gave her my pickup. Fly in and drive home. Would make a great graduation gift.
The Photos tell the story.
Well worth $8500.00-$9000.00 but I’ll take a quick $8200.00
GT option package that added front fender medallions, silver GT logos, wheel lips, color-keyed fender flares, heavy-duty 15-inch by 7-inch extra-wide GT Rallye wheels, charcoal astratone wheels painted with a bright center dome, lug nuts and deep-dish trim rings, GR60x15 white-letter Goodyear aramid tires and a leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel (a 2-spoke wheel if the tilt option was ordered at no extra cost). The GT’s Firm Feel suspension included heavy-duty torsion bars, heavy-duty anti-sway bars front and rear, heavy-duty shock absorbers with special valving and heavy-duty rear springs. The special Firm-Feel power steering system and special engine-turned instrument Rallye dash panel and crash pad applique included matching console trim with the console. There were only 1674 Magnum GTs produced in 1979
This is a Uber-rare 195 hp/280 lb-ft E58 360 4-bbl Police motor car with a high performance non-lockup 727 Torqueflite transmission and 9.25″ rear axle. This was the most powerful engine you could get in a Dodge car in 1979, and was the engine used in the 79 Little Red Express truck.
I’ve owned this car for over 15 years and taken very good care of it. It has less than 61,000 miles on it. I replaced the 85mph speedometer at 60,400 miles with a NOS Police Certified 140mph speedometer – and put less than 500 miles on the car since. I have the original speedo in a box somewhere in the shed.
I replaced the leaky and restrictive Thermoquad and cast iron intake with a Edelbrock RPM intake and a Edelbrock Performer 650CFM Performer with e/choke and AC idle options. I replaced the troublesome air cleaner mounted ignition with a Mopar Performance electronic ignition conversion kit. The car is both quicker and faster than stock — but I should still have the old parts in a box in my shed.
This car is rust-free, always garaged, and never been farther north than Atlanta, Ga.
In addition to the GT Package – Options Include:
- E58 360ci – 4-BBL with dual exhaust, 727 Transmission and 9.25″ Rear
- Leather seats
- Factory Installed AC
- Cruise control
- Power Windows
- Floor shifter with console
- Tilt Steering
- Intermittent Wipers
This is maybe the best equip and nicest 79 (far more rare than the 1978 GT and 20 more hp in the 1978 E58) GT available. The headlight doors are clear, the leather is great, carpet great, and the dash is great and without any cracking. Drives and rides like new, but faster; and brakes quick and straight. The car was just completely gone completely through and anything needing to be addressed was. Fly in and drive back to Alaska with confidence.
I’m asking $15,000 cash (Interbank Wired) for this car. Delivery can be arrange. eMail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Please no Nigerian Princes or offers to send me a cashier’s check for way too much money and for me to refund the difference. I’m not taking Paypal or Western Union either. Basically — if you’re a scammer — move on as I don’t fall for any of it and will accept a bank wire or dead Presidents only.

Not all Stacker trailers are created equal!
I’m selling a highly optioned 32′ Aluminum Stacker Race Trailer that I had custom built by Intech Trailers about 4 years ago. It will cost about $100K to have this exact trailer made. Features, in no particular order, include:
- All aluminum construction for great weight savings and better road stability at high speeds. Previously, I had an all steel Stacker trailer the same size, but with far fewer options on 16″ G-Rated Goodyear tires. It weighed 22,500 pounds loaded and I’d average 10 blowouts a year. I had this trailer built to my very high specifications and loaded with the same cars, golf cart, tools, and far more parts & supplies — it weighs only 14,200 pounds. I barely know it’s behind my bus type motorhome.
- I added 1′ increased interior height for 60’s full size cars, but still a legal 13′ 2″ — and goes under the 13.6 low bridges.
- This trailer is set up for two LARGE drag cars. We load a 65 Dodge Coronet and a 60 Plymouth Station Wagon, with a golf cart having a roof – and we travel cross county with ease.
- Triple 7,000 pound spread axles with high speed, H-Load rated Goodyear tires. I’ve NEVER had a flat and often travel at 75mph on Texas highways.
- Optional .050 Aluminum skin thickness for a far better look over .040. It also avoids warping in extreme hot or cold weather and dents from hail.
- Wrapped last year in Antique Bronze. Was previously blue.
- The Roof is heavy duty braced to walk on observation.
- The attic is heavy duty braced to transport a golf cart
- Attic starts 6’5″ from floor for tall people to stand upright
- Full width rear door goes wall to wall to make it easier to load wide cars
- Aircraft cargo strips and Heavy Duty D-Rings
- Floor made of Extruded Aluminum
- Tongue extended 1′ for tighter turns and backing with out damage to trailer or towing vehicle
- Tongue box to house jack hydraulics (instead of taking up a floor cabinet) plus two storage compartments. I have two pneumatic hydraulic jacks and an impact wrench with air for on one side and trailer’s 35 amp shore line on the other side.
- Lift pump in floor compartment
- Dove tail rear for easy loading of low cars and low headers. I’ve never hung a car up loading in trailer or on lift.
- Spare tire mount with new H-Load Rated 17.5″ A Spare tire on front of trailer. A flat (NEVER HAD ON ON THIS TRAILER) can be quickly changed without going into the trailer.
- All LED lights. Interior, Loading, Pit, Cabinet, under lift lights are bright low watt DC LEDs.
- All Driving lights are LED.
- There are 6 Deep Cycle batteries in floor compartment, which can power the trailer (lights, lift, jack) for better than a week in the pits and away from shore power.
- Completely wired for 35 AMP shore power service that automatically powers the numerous 120V outlets and heavy duty battery charger. Circuit breaker box, battery charger and master cutoff switch in street-side upper compartment.
- All aluminum lift with three removable center sections — to service the underside of the race car.
- Two more in-floor spare tire compartments, one containing a new matching spare tire (never on ground) and the other supplies.
- Wall fender compartments with shelving on street side.
- In floor winch compartment with wired 12,000 pound electric winch. Also has a slide in pulley for loading the bottom car, while the lift has a pulley mounted to load the top car.
- Full width upper/lower cabinets with stainless steel work bench and full length closet in front of the trailer.
- Double side doors that open wide enough to drive a Golf-Cart in.
- Slide out door step.
- Puck door lock for greatest security
- Wall mounted race car tire holder in attic
- Wall mounted 5 jug holder in attic
- Wall mounter jack pouch
- Built in Tool Chest
- Large door mounted cabinet with drop down table
- Front & Back wall mounted strap holders with closed cell foam rubber under it to protect wall
- 4′ Rubbermaid wall rack to hold extension cords, blower, broom and mop
- Extra long aluminum lift ramps to load low cars with headers
- Extra long full length aluminum door ramp with lock downs — for loading long cars
- Heavy Duty 30,000 pound safety tongue – for safe towing
- Wall mounted Fire Extinguisher Holder
- Inverter that converts DC to AC – I use on bench for weather station and computer. Master cutoff switch.
I’ve pulled this stacker all over the country with a 43′ motorhome with a 450hp Cummins. It tracks real well behind the coach and I pass trucks going up the mountains. My deal is that I’ll be ordering a 45′ Coach and as such, I need to step down to a 30′ stacker to stay legal. This trailer was built to last for decades with good care and annual axle greasing.
My opinion is that Intech makes the very best aluminum trailers, and they have not experienced the quality/welding problems racers have experienced with trailers like ATC. They do cost more — but are worth it. A trailer with all of these important options (extra height, 17.5 H-Load (and 86 MPH Speed) Rated wheels and tires including two spares, thick skin, extra roof and attic bracing…) will cost you around $100K to order. This trailer is ready to go. will last you years. I’ll sell for $60K. I believe it is a 2015.

Selling the NSSRacing.com domain with the forum and Registered membership list.
Frankly I haven’t been doing a good job with promoting the site, soliciting advertisers, adding race dates to the calendar or promoting the Classified Ad section. It was once a very active forum for those interested in Nostalgia Super Stock Drag Racing. This might be a good opportunity to for a NSS Group, vendor of a product or service of interest to NSS Racers, or a computer Geek willing to build the site and sell banner ads.
I feel the the domain name, membership and Vbulletin license is worth more than $1000 as-is, Where-is – but I’ll accept the $1000. Any of my help or domain hosting would be extra. If the site doesn’t sell within a month or so — then I’ll list the domain name on an auction site, sell the Vbulletin license and delete the site. If you are interested in the site, domain name or Vbulletin license — contact me via email at davetheoldhippie @ Gmail.com.
I created a Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/nssracing/ that appears to be taking up a lot of the slack for NSS Racing — although a Vbulletin board is far more efficient with regards to categorizing posts by topic, calendars, searching, and income opportunity with banner pay for view or pay for click ads.
The first week of May 2019, I raced in Memphis. See the Memphis Recap for that story. After I returned from the Memphis Race — here’s a few of the items accomplished at the shop, in no real order.
First we had a butt-load of rain here. I actually had more flooding coming closer to my home and the shop than the last two hurricanes and the last Tropical Storms.
Moving to the topic of cars, the following was part of the happenings.
While on the subject of dye, 48oz of Evergreen Dye has been applied to the interior of my 64 Imperial. Still needs more so I ordered another 16oz this morning.
And while on the subject of my 64 Imperial, I took it for a 60-mile shakedown ride yesterday. The goal was to identify what problems I still have to address after all of the work (new brakes, power steering pump, complete exhaust system, major motor tuneup, leaking transmission fixed, odometer fixed, convertible pumps fixed, carb rebuild, new shocks – and a ton I’ve forgotten). The below is the first of five videos I took, which documents the repairs I still need to make.
None of the problems were really major — and two actually corrected themselves. However, about 29 miles into my trip I kept getting smoke looking like it was rolling out from under the dashboard. I stopped the first time and looked under the hood and under the car – but could find nothing. When I started driving again the smoke reappeared only thicker. I stopped again and looked under the dash and found nothing. As I was getting back in the car I noticed smoke coming from the back seat — and that’s when I saw my carpet was on fire. Fortunately I carry a fire extinguisher in most of my old cars — as I was way out in the sticks and had no water. After I got the fire put out — I found that the brand new exhaust was too close to the floorboards and set jute on the back of my 56 year old carpet caught fire. I order a fire mat made for Turbos and catalytic converters, which I’ll use as part of my repair — but I will have to get a new carpet. You can see the other videos of the test drive on my You Tube Channel.
Moving onto Race Cars, The Thugs now has Wheelie Bars as twice I was surprised with Wheel Stands far higher than I was expecting.
Yesterday I picked up the block to my wagon, the Screamin’ Woody, from the machine shop. After a thorough washing the crank was sent in, and then the rest of the rotating.
Also on the wagon, the cage was painted hammered gold to blend in a little with the Maple wood on the pillars.
I intend to leave the carpet black — but will make new interior door cards in a red vinyl that will match the seats going in.. The car is on the home stretch to getting finished.
I’ve had a 63 Studebaker GT Hawk for about thirty years now. It’s bounce around a couple of shops to get converted into a Mopar Powered chassis car with a 53 Commander front clip and 60 Plymouth fins — called the Mohawk. It’s come back worse from each of the shops its been to in the last 20 years — so I bought it to my shop to try to tackle the job. The body has been separated from the chassis.
A good bit of work has been accomplished since these photos. The body is wrapped in a tarp at the moment, but the chassis has been reinforced and the welds smoothed. It is about ready for paint – and then will be brought into the shop to get the all of the chassis components right. On the body — it needs to have those nasty home made rear fins cut off and a set of 60 Plymouth fins I have grafted on — and then blasted, repaired and primed.
A lot of wet sanding has occurred on the 60 Plymouth that will be my Petty Clone — but I don’t have any photos of that.
I took my Magnum XE for a shakedown ride, and it’s almost ready. I’ve had this car for a very long time and love it. Ought to be the fastest Magnum out there.
I putting a cactus garden at the entrance way of my race shop and so I picked up a couple yards of a sandy soil mix at the local dirtyard. Photos of the cactus garden to be in the next shop update.
Finally, I’m thinning my cars down from 31 to about ten. I have a lot of real nice ones for sale. The list includes:
- 67 Marlin
- 99 Vioer GTS
- 79 Magnum GT
- 86 Buick GN
- 72 Demon Roller Race Car
- 69 Barracuda Race Car
- 70 Superbird V-Code
- 09 Drag Pack 42
- 78 Dodge Diplomat
- 64 Dodge A-100 Pick up
- 58 Dodge Pickup
- a pair of low mileage 09 Challengers with 6-speeds
- 61 Plodge Wagon
So that’s my story — and I’m sticking to it!
50 pounds in less than four months
