1973 Dodge Charger 400
The Dodge Charger (B-body) is a mid-size automobile that was
produced by Dodge from 1966 to 1978 and was based on the Chrysler B
The 1973 model year was the third generation Charger, characterized
by the split grille and more rounded "fuselage" body style.
Most of the changes for the 1973 Dodge Charger were cosmetic that
year and one stood out as a premium performance example and had the
400 cubic inch 4-barrel B series engine.
We have one of those 1973 Dodge Charger 400's here at Adventure
Classics with the P code in the VIN verifying it came with that 400
4BBL 8 Cylinder "B" (High Performance) engine.
Engine & Drivetrain
Ours has the original 400 cubic inch engine with a few upgrades as
well. It has a lot of factory stock equipment like the engine
block, cast iron exhaust manifolds, power steering, and 4 wheel
power disc brakes, but has performance additions like the Edelbrock
aluminum Performance intake, 4-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock chrome
open element air cleaner and chrome valve covers, Mopar Performance
Ignition, red racing Spark Plug Wires, and MSD ignition parts.
All this power gets to the ground via the 727 Automatic
Transmission shifted via the center console, and H.D. Chrysler rear
end and gasses flow out the dual exhaust system to chrome tips out
The interior looks great and is factory correct with its Rallye
dash, pushbutton Am/Fm radio, center console, high-back black
bucket seats that are comfortable with the matching rear seat,
three spoke factory steering wheel, black carpet and floor mats.
This car was born with factory AC, however it has been deleted.
All the rest of the interior looks like it did when it left the
showroom with the factory stock door panels, headliner, as well as
the clean and stock looking trunk with it's trunk mat.
The Charger is known for the Coke-bottle profile and will always be
regarded as one of the most beautiful of its era, and ours has the
bright red paint scheme with the offsetting black tail stripe,
enlarged rear quarter-window with the specially designed rear
triple "opera" window, taillights with vertical slats, and rides on
chrome 5-spoke mag wheels and raised white letter BF Goodrich
Radial TA performance tires.
The 1973 Dodge Charger we have at Adventure Classics is a great
example of how Dodge Chargers were modified back in the day to
outperform the other brands of muscle cars. Ours has done that and
done it well. It is very powerful and fast, and also well-built and
dependable for cruises and trips to the track.
