I'd suggest starting with some good old-fashioned restoration guides.
I kind of want something that is already done, and ready to drive. I don't have much spare time to work/learn DIY.
What should I watch out for?
Also, can this car be my daily driver?
I only work 10 miles from my house, and I have a winter beater?
Best thing to do is to do a LOT of research. See if there is an old Mopar car club in your area.. if so join it and talk with the people in the club. Also, go to car shows and ask, ask, ask... owners of the car you want at car shows are very friendly and will tell you anything you want to know... what parts are hard to find... what to expect, what to watch out for... they may even know someone that has a car you want to buy.

It is just like buying any other car. Do your homework and find out what people are selling their cars for and not what they are asking. If you don't know much about cars, then take it to a mechanic and get his opinion. There are independent shops in every town that you can take the car to. How does it drive? Any rattles or vibrations? If you are buying a 70 Challenger as a daily driver, you are paying a premium. But hey, it's your money.

As said above. Join a Mopar club. Find out the knowledge of club members and check out their cars. Try to find the best factory stock examples. I think right now classic muscle cars are at an all time high of being hacked together. Take your time.
