Mopar muscle machine always make us take notice. So when you can
find a 1973 Dodge Challenger with its numbers-matching V8, cold A/C
interior, and some choice upgrades, you know it's time to pay
The look of this Challenger is exactly what makes you love this era. Hood scoops, pillarless hardtop, and a wide muscular stance give this an iconic look that's unbeatable. The gray paint makes this the battleship of the streets. The details are nice, like the hood-mounted turn signals and Rallye wheels. Plus, this example has the cool Rallye Package that gives you the bold side strobe stripes. This coordinates with the grille, blacked-out rear panel, large spoiler, and black vinyl roof to give this coupe a well-coordinated dark side.
You can tell there has been a solid investment inside that keeps the vintage attitude, while also offering the right upgrades. The high-back bucket seats have a great vintage look and comfortable cloth inserts for where you sit. The whole interior is built around you with the center console favoring the driver and a dash that keeps everything within easy reach. As you slip behind the classic two-spoke sports steering wheel, you start to see this is finished in a tasteful carbon fiber that coordinates nicely with this coupe's colors. You've got the full Rallye gauge panel in front of you, and AutoMeter auxiliary readouts neatly installed under the dash. Plus, this coupe has all the right features for easy cruising like cold air conditioning and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux hookup.
The 340 cubic-inch V8 is already a Mopar legend. So it's great to have the numbers-matching block under the hood. And while there's a nice look of originality everywhere from the decals to the air topper, there's also some very nice upgrades. A Holley four-barrel carburetor, MSD ignition, and newer aluminum radiator keeps this one running strong. There's a nice muscular soundtrack from the dual exhaust. But this Challenger is much more. With power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes w/discs up front, and rare cruise control, you have a great all-around driving classic.
This is the Challenger with the features you want and a price that's irresistible. So don't let this deal slip away, call today!
