1973 Dodge Challenger R/T

It's hard not to get excited about this 1973 Dodge Challenger R/T tribute. After all, it's a beautiful coupe that has gone through a full restoration to make it brighter and more powerful than Chrysler could imagine. And yes, the callouts are correct, it's got the six-pack!
The theme of this car is a thoughtful muscle machine. The red paint has a great gloss, and it's on top of exceptional sheet metal. It's the product of a thorough restoration. So more than just look good with the Challenger's iconic curves, these doors close with more authority than ones from the factory ever could. Plus, the dark side aggressive elements look terrific against the full red package. The blacked-out grille, callouts on the hood scoops, blacked-out rear panel, and large rear spoiler are instant standouts. And factory elements like the form-fitting chrome bumpers and hood pins shine bright enough to match the modern 17-inch Boys Coddington wheels.
Inside are more great signs of investment. After all, the red and white is so expertly interwoven that you even get red R/T embroidery on the headrests of the white bucket seats. Because this was born a more basic black, you can tell that the two-tone interior is all quite fresh. Mopars of this era were all about being a driver's machine. That's why the center console favors you with the well-integrated wood paneling and gearshift. Plus, the dash puts everything right at your fingertips from the heat/defrost control, to the AM/FM radio that has been upgraded for iPods. Plus, you get the classic Mopar sports steering wheel, and beyond that, the white-faced gauges not only blend with the car's colors, but also the upgraded Rallye package gives you all the essential info.
You can tell there was plenty left over in the restoration budget for the engine bay. More than just fresh components, there's an overall tidiness that tells you this was a thoughtful build. You're looking at a 360 cubic-inch V8 that's been bored to a monster 407 ci, but the performance improvements don't stop there. It was rebuilt around 4,500 miles ago, and it is now topped by the iconic triple-dual carburetor Six-Pack. It fires up with the kind of steadfastness you expect from a restored V8, and it growls to life as the long tube headers feed the newer X-pipe dual exhaust. So now this is not only make some serious power, but this big dog also has the bark to announce it to everyone. Making sure you get this power to the ground is an upgrade to a rebuilt 700R4 four-speed transmission with full Kiesler Engineering conversion and 3500 RPM stall to keep you in the optimal power band. But this is more than just a big power package. It has all the right supporting components like a BeCool aluminum radiator and Optima red top battery. Remember, the automatic transmission also has highway-friendly overdrive. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and thick sway bars front & rear, and this is an all-around great driving muscle machine.
Complete, powerful, and ready to roll, this is the red-devil Mopar that has been given all the right investments. So all that's missing is you. Call now!
