1974 Dodge Charger SE - Factory U Code 440 Car - Non Numbers
Matching Motor - Automatic Transmission - Factory Triple Black Car
- Tons Of Factory Options - 94k Miles Shown With the popularity of
the Pony Car in the mid-1960s, it is no wonder that many auto
manufacturers started to seek out a piece of this automotive craze.
Although it was initially a concept car, the first Charger was
produced for the 1966 model year. Designed as an upscale, upsized
Pony Car, the Charger was hoping to be the new personal car that
was going to set Dodge apart in this new emerging niche market.
Noted as a more expensive and luxurious coupe than some of its
competitors, the Charger was positioned to take on the market
segment represented by the Oldsmobile Toronado and Ford Thunderbird
instead of the muscle car segment which is where this vehicle is
often categorized. The third generation of the Dodge Charger was
produced from 1971 through the 1974 model years. Like the 1971
model, the 1973 and 1974 models had minor differences in the grille
and headlamps as well as debuted with new quarter windows that were
both larger and shaped differently than previous Chargers. The
third generation also saw an increase in sales due to Dodge's
elimination of the Dodge Coronet, allowing the Charger to be the
only two-door intermediate-sized vehicle under the Dodge brand
(although the Coronet would reappear in 1975). Shown here is a 1974
Dodge Charger SE. Displayed in a triple black factory color
combination, this Charger is quite stunning. With a bold front
fascia and chrome American Racing wheels, this Dodge exhibits a
subtle muscular prowess that is not overwhelming. All exterior
finishes show nicely, and the vinyl roof covering has aged
exceptionally well. The triple quarter windows harken to design
elements from the Chevrolet Camaro and Plymouth Barracuda. From the
nose to the tail of this vehicle, it is evident that this Charger
has been taken care of. Under the hood is a non-number matching
motor but this Charger is noted as a factory U Code 440 car. Noted
with 94k miles and an automatic transmission, this unique offering
from Dodge is ready to hit the road. As stated, the black interior
has been as well-kept as the exterior. The leather front bucket
seats and rear bench are supple and appear quite comfortable. There
are a couple of tears in the headliner, but they are not
significant enough to be completely falling down; it may need to be
replaced at a future date. Noted with tons of factory options, like
power windows and AM/FM radio, this Charger is filled with style.
With the reintroduction of the Charger name and its continuation
today, these vintage examples are becoming quite favorable among
collectors. This Charger is the perfect example of both performance
and grace. We hope that you consider this Dodge Charger as the next
addition to your garage or collection. Please call if interested or
e-mail with specific questions. Thanks for looking.
