1974 Dodge Charger

This 1974 Charger has been meticulously restored to its factory original Yellow Blaze paint with black vinyl top and interior. The car was partially restored in 2006 and in the past 4 years the current owner has meticulously completed a major restoration and refreshing as well detailing to the car to show standards. The charger still wears all its original panels.

I will attempt to list out all the unique features and history of this amazing vehicle:

History: car purchased new by Universal Studios and is a Y28 public relations car. It is also a Y86 New car service and has a Y95 show car finish. Car was then sold to its first owner in May of 1974. It stayed in California most of its life. Luckily, the previous owners had the foresight to retain the paperwork and there is a stack of documents that go with the car including the original check for a deposit from the first owner and registrations.

Some of the options and features of this 2-fender tag 3 build sheet car:

· KY5 Yellow Blaze paint

In 2006: the car received a mechanical restoration with the original numbers matching engine and trans (featuring mild stall converter) being rebuilt as well as the suspension. The entire car was also repainted at the time including the undercarriage. The engine block features its original numbers stamped into it and was rebuilt at Koffel’s place in Huron Ohio (Mopar fans know this is the shop for high end, high horsepower Mopars). Please see dyno sheet. Although the exterior of the motor looks 100% original, the internals are all high-end parts that netted 500hp on the dyno so you can pass up your friends Hemi car except you can enjoy a sunroof and AC.

July 2018 Cover car for Muscle Car Review -extensive photos and details are listed in this magazine which featured cars from the early 70’s and how they are becoming extremely collectible now. There is a 4-page spread on the car. Color photos and numerous other details describing the rarity and quality of the car are shown.

Included with the sale is a 2” thick binder with over a hundred receipts. Also included with this car is the original paperwork from the dealer (dealer order) as well as 3 superb build sheets and a binder full of original paperwork. Everything works with the exception of the cruise control. AC blows cold air because over $2,000 was spent to correctly restore it (you all heard the saying “It only needs Freon” well to truly get these cars working they need a lot more than a recharge).

All lights interior and exterior work, turn signals, brake, headlights, and reverse lights. (nothing worse than when you see a big dollar car cross Mecum or Barrett/Jackson auction block and a taillight is out or a headlight does not work)

For the numbers Gurus it is 1 of 208 440 4bl cars and 1 of only 4 total Charger Rallyes with a manual sunroof and a 440. No other 1974 Charger has all these options so it’s truly a 1 of 1. This car is in the Chrysler registry and was decoded by Galen Govier.
