Up for sale in our Tampa showroom is this stunning 1973 Dodge Challenger. This classic Mopar is finished in its original color and was repainted about 2 years ago. The black vinyl top has also been redone and shows in very good condition. This car has also been customized as a tribute to the R/T Challenger model including blacked out hood, R/T side graphics, rear deck "Go Wing", quick release gas cap and dual chrome side view mirrors. The paint looks great on this mean Mopar and you will be proud to take it to any car show. Body and frame are very solid and the under hood and trunk are very clean. Keeping this muscle machine rolling is a set of timeless 15 inch Cragar SS mag rims with 235/60R15 Cooper Radial G/T tires, both rims and tires installed new in 2016. The 360 CID engine is a newer 375 HP crate version with many upgrades. Edelbrock Performer intake, Edelbrock 4 BBL carburetor, complete MSD ignition system including distributor, coil and MSD 6AL ignition box, aluminum valve covers, ceramic coated headers, full length exhaust with Flow Master mufflers and four chrome exhaust tips, are all features of this car. This engine has an awesome muscle car sound, not overly loud but people will know there is classic horsepower on the road when they hear it coming! The A904 automatic transmission was overhauled in 2016 with high performance parts including a complete overhaul kit, new performance kevlar bands and a new Hughes Performance 2000 RPM stall torque converter. You are in control of all this power with a console grip shifter, power steering and power front disc brakes. Keeping you cool is a factory A/C system that was completely upgraded with a Classic Air 134a retrofit kit that blows ice cold. This upgrade was done in 2017 and includes a new lightweight A/C compressor, new lines, new condenser and other modern components. The interior of this Challenger is all business with stock style bucket seats redone in original two-tone blue and the newer carpet and headliner look great. The Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo has Bluetooth and aux music inputs, there is an amp and big subwoofer in the trunk that makes those tunes come alive. This stereo system was a new professional install in 2017 and sounds fantastic. The suspension and steering has also been gone through including a new steering gear box, all new ball joints and all new tie rod ends. The U-joints have been replaced recently as well so this classic American muscle drives down the road like it should, even the original build sheet is included as well. So here is a visual... a clear blue sky, a wide-open road, your favorite music playing on a great sound system, this Mopar muscle car making its own music and you with a large smile on your face behind the wheel of this fantastic piece of American automotive history!
