1974 Dodge Challenger

Bidders from Europe, he United Kingdom, ermany and Australia are now welcome to make an offer or use the buy it now on my car here. Decided to sell my 1974 Dodge Challenger A57 Rallye car. A 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 dually has come up for sale in the area that I really want so I am gonna let this car of mine here go up for sale here on eBay. Don't really want to sell it as I have owned it for many years, ut sometimes you have to make sacrifices in order to get what you really want in life. I have owned this 1974 Dodge Challenger Rallye car for about 12-13 years now. My plan was to take it back to all original since it's so rare. I have collected a ton of 1974 only Challenger parts for it as well. If it was a 1974 date coded Challenger part, bought it for the car. Tons of parts come with this car. I will try to get pictures of most of it here in the next few days. The drive train that comes with it is a 1972 440-4V drive train out of my 1972 Chrysler New Yorker. The original 100% numbers matching motor and transmission out of that car. It did run good when it was pulled out of the car by me years ago. It has sat in my shop ever since then, o it might need to be rebuilt or it might not? I have no idea really. It's a 50/50 thing that it might run or not. It was never put into the 1974 Rallye Challenger because I wanted to do a full restoration on the car before that happened.
The car does need a full restoration, ut it could be driven like it is as a ratty muscle car if you wanted to go that route? This car does have the typical E-body rust and needs new full rear 1/4 panels on both sides, full trunk pan with trunk extensions on the sides and a partial front floor pan patch on the driver's side. The floors up front are surprisingly nice with low rust. Rear floors are mint as can be. Just needs a driver's side floor pan patch in one spot and that's it. I did notice one small section of the tail panel rotted out on the driver's side in back there but it's easily fixable. There was also a spot on the firewall that was rotted out as well, ut it's small and very fixable. Both doors are solid except for some small rot in the front lower corners of them. Passenger's side front floor pan is nice and needs nothing really. The fenders are solid as well, ut do need small patches on the lower side of them on both side. The rocker panels did have some rust in them as well, ut nothing extremely major. I also noticed some rust and pitting starting along the drip rail moldings in the rain gutters that run along the roof on both sides. Even though this is a vinyl top originally, he roof is really really solid. I also noticed some rust out starting in the front low side of the rear wheel wells but it's minor and not a big deal at all. All this rust is very fixable and not an issue at all in my eyes. The deck lid and hood are original to the car and are basically mint. I did see one little rot out spot on the deck lid but it was not on the rear lip. It was towards the front of it on the under structure (frame work). Easy fix on that.
The hood has no rust at all that I could tell and is super nice. Front and rear valances are absolutely cherry. The first rear valance is a super nice original 1973-74 Challenger dual exhaust rear valance. The second rear valance is a legit 1973-74 Challenger non-dual exhaust NOS rear valance like the car had when it was new since it's a 1974 318 Rallye car. 1972-74 318 Rallye Challengers never had dual exhaust rear valances from the factory. This car started life as a 318-2V equipped GE7 burnished red metallic (dark burgundy) 1974 Dodge Challenger Rallye with a black bucket seat console shift automatic black interior, full black vinyl top and black Rallye stripes coming off of the lower fender scoops/vents that run down onto both doors on either side of the car. The original 8 3/4 dog leg (non-Sure Grip) rear end with the rear sway bar is still in place in back there and is very nice shape. This car is loaded out with options and is a legit 2 fender tag car because of all the options it has. Check out the fender tag pics to see all the options this car had when it was new. The original door sticker is still in place and is very nice on the driver's side door jamb there. I don't know what the original wheels were as I only found bits and pieces of a build sheet. It either had 1974 style 14 inch Rallye wheels or 1974 style Magnum 500 road wheels. This was a really cool car when it was brand new. This car has spent many years here in Oklahoma and I think probably sold new here somewhere here in the state. It was owned by that one guy who runs Road Runner Auto Sales there in Drumright, klahoma at one time. Then a guy I knew named Mike bought it off of him and he had it in the Claremore/Verdigris, klahoma area for awhile. I got the car off of Mike and have owned it ever since then.
The last two 1974 Rallye Challengers in burnished red metallic that I saw sell on eBay here in somewhat close condition to mine, old for $12,000 and $14,000. Now both of those cars did run good and had better bodies on them. One was a 318-2V Rallye car and the other one was a 360-4V Rallye car. But, either of them had a complete 1972 440 drive train with them and didn't have near the parts mine comes with either. The rare 1974 only color GE7 burnished red metallic does add quite a bit of value to this car, o what I am asking for the car is what I think it's worth. They are wanting $9,995 for that 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 dually I want. So, need to get about the same for my 1974 Rallye Challenger here. The buy it now is currently set at $10,000 for someone who just really has to have it. The title on the car is completely clear and in our name. My car here comes with tons of parts not mentioned here. I will update the description as I can here in the next couple of days. The other pictures of 1974 Dodge Challengers I posted here on this auction are of other cars that are the same color as mine. It will give you an idea of what this car would have looked like early on it's life back in the 70's and what it would look like now restored. Just letting you know why I posted those pictures here. Full payment is due within 14 days of receiving a total from me, o later.
