The Gen1 MOPAR E-body is rare in today's marketplace. Chrysler
Corporation did not produce as many 'pony" cars as GM and Ford.
This restored 1973 MOPAR began life as a Challenger 'Rallye' 340,
but it has been the beneficiary of serious mechanical upgrades. The
exterior re-spray (2007) of Top Banana Yellow is in very good
condition, as is the black vinyl top. A Challenger Rallye 340 hood,
black paint accents, period-correct American Racing alloy wheels
and a mean stance complete the exterior package. Inside, the black
vinyl interior has also been refreshed. Seats have been
reupholstered and accents include wood-grain trim, tinted windows
and AM/FM stereo. The interior was removed and Dynamat Xtreme sound
insulation was installed under new carpeting. New door cards w/new
hardware have also been installed. The owner reconfigured all of
the wiringand has included detailed wiring diagram documentation
(Factory MOPAR wiring was a little suspect during this timeframe.)
That said, this MOPAR is all about muscle. The original, matching
number 340ci motor has been built to perform. Use of a 4340 stroker
crank w/Wiseco pistons created a 416ci monster. It is fitted with
Edelbrock aluminum heads and intake, solid-lifter Comp cam, roller
rockers, Holley Mighty Demon 850cfm carb, MSD ignition and 8-qt
pan. Exhaust is routed through TTi custom headers and a 3"
stainless exhaust system. The 416 is mated to a TCI Super Street
automatic w/Super Street torque converter that transfers power to
an Auburn Pro Series differential with 3.91:1 Richmond gears and
NHRA approved axles. Caltrac rear springs, Caltrac traction bars
and QA1 shocks plant the power disc/drum brakes. The chassis is
fitted with a T/A power steering box and power disc/drum/ brakes.
The Challenger has recently received a major service including all
fluids and a new battery. If you want an old-school Challenger that
is built to run, take a look at this one - it is all business. ALL
VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
