$5K spent in 2019 getting her to top performance.
Purchased 20 years ago as a father and son project. I have great memories of building this with my dad. Now, I'm a dad and someday I will work on a car with my young son. It's time to pass the keys to someone who has time to enjoy this awesome car. It shouldn't be stuck in the garage. Our Charger has been well taken care of and I am seeking a good home with someone who will enjoy her as much as we have.
We are the third owner spanning its nearly 50 year history. Over the last year, we spent almost $5K to get her back in top performance. The majority of work done by a seasoned mechanic our family has been using for 25 years. He knows his way around cars having built and raced them.
There is virtually no body work necessary, as we have always garaged the car and the former owner indicated he had done the same. The only thing I noticed is with the section of vinyl top along the trunk. There is some separation and ripping in this area only. The majority of the roof vinyl has stood the test of time well.
On the lower underpanel of the passenger door, a small golf ball size puncture occurred in the metal from a jackstand many years ago resulting in some rust deposit.
The interior shows some age, but overall is in great shape. No seat or carpet tears. Any UV fading of material is minimal. Dash is sturdy and intact but does have a few defined cracks. Roof liner is tight also no tearing, but a couple of small dime sized holes appear along the perimeter.
Only 79k miles on the odometer, we purchased with only about 50-60K original miles.
This price evaluation is based on current market. Most Chargers of this 71-73 era that I reviewed are fully restored with asking prices in the 30-35K range. Chargers on the other end (less than $15,000) mostly look to need significant work. This 72 Charger for sale looks great and is ready to drive with almost $5,000 put into her in 2019 by a professional mechanic (will send list of work upon request).
