1974 Dodge Challenger

Decided to try and sell my 1974 Dodge Challenger Rallye car here on eBay one more time. If it doesn't sell this go around? I'm just gonna put it on the road and enjoy it for many years to come. I have owned this 1974 Dodge Challenger Rallye car for about 15 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, I bought it for the car. Lots of parts come with this car. 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, so 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 engine compartment before that happened. By the way, the title on the car is clear and clean. Haven't tagged it in many years though.
The car does need a full restoration, but 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 in it and needs new full rear 1/4 panels on both sides, a 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, but 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, but do need small patches on the lower side of them on both side. The rocker panels did have some rust in them as well, but 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, the 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 (burgundy) 1974 Dodge Challenger Rallye with a black bucket seat console shift automatic black interior, a 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 in very nice shape. If the buy it now is used on the car? I will throw in a nice ready to bolt in 489 case 355 Sure Grip 3rd member. 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 this state. It was owned by that one guy who runs Road Runner Auto Sales there in Drumright, Oklahoma at one time. Then a guy I knew named Mike bought it off of him and he had it in the Claremore/Verdigris, Oklahoma area for awhile. I got the car off of Mike and have owned it ever since then.
Cash only for payment on my car here. PayPal payments of any kind amount is really high. Full payment on the car is due within 14 days of the auction ending and no later. The car can be stored on my property free of charge for one full year if this helps out the buyer? That way the buyer has plenty of time to figure out transport on the car and doesn't have to worry about coming and getting the car right away. Just trying to be a nice person to the potential winning bidder. No non-paying bidders please, as they will be reported to eBay for non-paying bidder status and may receive an eBay item strike. Please look at all the pictures closely and judge for yourself if this car is what you really want and is worth purchasing for yourself. If you need any additional pictures of my car here? Please send me your e-mail address and I will supply you with more pictures ASAP. Thanks for looking and happy bidding!
