Dodge’s Challenger has always been considered iconic in the muscle car world—and it is not without reason. From the originals of the early 1970s to the new models of today, these are cars that generate raw excitement. The Challenger had an answer for anyone’s needs—from practical grocery getter to tire spinning, road eating, raw American muscle.
Of the latter persuasion is this 4 barrel carbureted 440 equipped 1973 Challenger, finished in Hemi Orange. Benefiting from a complete restoration, this car has a beautiful finish that is further enhanced by Black rallye hood stripes and ram-air type hood scoops. The chrome and bright work are also in excellent condition. Adding additional pop is its rear spoiler, polished 17” wheels, and chrome tipped dual exhaust. This Challenger also benefits from a brand new set of tires.
The interior is equally sporty, and features Black vinyl bucket seats and a center console. The seating areas, carpeting, dashboard, headliner, and console are all in excellent condition. You will also appreciate this car’s power steering, power front disc brakes, automatic transmission, and AM/FM stereo with CD player. A full array of Summit gauges, including a tachometer, will keep you informed about what’s going on under the hood.
But this car is not just about good looks. Under the hood is where it counts, and this car does not disappoint. This Challenger’s built 440 packs a punch. It features an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and a high rise intake manifold. Its Mopar Performance air cleaner and finned valve covers are the perfect accompaniment to its neatly detailed engine compartment. The engine is mated to a Torqueflite 727 3-speed automatic transmission with a 8.75 inch limited slip differential. One tap of the accelerator reveals a satisfying exhaust note that will bring a smile to your face.
Originally a non-R/T car equipped with a 318, total mileage is unknown. In addition, although originally an A/C car, the system is no longer with the car. It should also be noted that the horn is not currently working. Minor imperfections in the finish do not detract from the overall appearance of this car. The original T-type shifter will be included with sale.
If a beautifully restored Challenger that is ready to enjoy is what you desire, this is the one for you!
