When the new Challenger R/T was announced, everybody and their mother lined up to own one. Its easy to find bone-stock examples that have zero miles and have only been wiped with a diaper. But say youre not into some faux investment scheme and just want a scary fast Mopar that isnt a Viper? Enter this 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T with a big honkin Kenne Bell blower. How does a Corvette-eating daily driver sound to you? This suckers not exactly subtle with that two-tone paint job, but then again, youd have to be deaf not to know something is up when it rumbles past. Torred was the cars original color, but the black accents and top side give it a long, lean, predatory look and we like the way theyve duplicated the vintage strobe stripes down the flanks. Although its been driven 22,323 miles, this car has always been a fair-weather toy so its extremely clean all around and the paint will still stand up to scrutiny at shows, which is a good thing because this thing is an eyeball magnet. For the most part, the Challengers good looks speak for themselves, and the two-tone treatment plays up the crisp folds in the sheetmetal, particularly the crease that runs along the sides of the car. The R/T package added a chin spoiler, decklid spoiler, and some somewhat menacing HEMI badges on the fenders, but even with all that advertising most guys wont know what hit them until its too late. To be honest, its worth buying the R/T package just to get the upgraded interior, including the ultra-comfortable bucket seats that grab you like theyre covered in Velcro. With horizontal pleats and custom embroidery, they continue the high-impact look of the exterior, just so you know youve got something special. Everything was standard, too, so that means stuff like power windows and locks, a powerful climate control system, and a thumping Kenwood stereo are all here. Its still just as comfortable as it was when it was new and if you can keep your foot off the loud pedal, its comfortable and easy to drive. White-faced gauges keep an eye on the vitals and youll be glad to have them, because when you crack the throttle on this one, things start to happen very, very quickly. Dont say we didnt warn you. The stock R/T is no slouch, packing 372 horsepower. But thats garden-variety these days so the guys at the Injected Engineering stuffed a giant 2.8 liter Kenne Bell Mammoth supercharger under the hood. That $10,000 supercharger is the heart of the upgrade, along with a custom air intake and supporting hardware to handle all the extra horsepower. To manage the extra air coming in, theres a custom-programmed Predator ECU that manages a set of upgraded fuel injectors that can easily keep pace with the superchargers propensity to make boost. All told, it makes silly horsepower, yet still starts easily, idles well, and is happy to putt around like a stocker. But sooner or later youll give in to the superchargers seductive torque and dump the throttle, at which point the transmission will slam down two gears and youll be hurtling forward at ludicrous speed. Its at that moment that youll be glad for the upgraded Eibach suspension and massive disc brakes. A Flowmaster Force II exhaust system gives it a unique sound, and it sits on gorgeous 22-inch Lexani wheels with staggered 265/35/22 front and 295/30/22 rear Nexen tires. So if youre tired of stock Mopars, this R/T is fully sorted with show car looks. Call today!
The Big Three all introduced new pickup trucks in 1948, but historians generally acknowledge that the Dodge B-series was the most advanced of them all. While Ford and Chevy tried to put new details in old trucks, Dodge went all-out and designed a completely new vehicle with several notable improvements to design, safety, and carrying capacity. The result is that trucks like this 1950 Dodge B100 drive like much more modern pieces, and when theyre as nicely restored as this one is, theyre unusual and admired additions to any collection. The single most noteworthy design feature of the new Dodge trucks was the fender line that sweeps all the way into the door panel. Not only was this the first foray into the completely integrated designs that would come in the 1950s, but it instantly made the Ford and Chevy trucks look dated. Dodge designers referred to it as the Pilothouse safety cab. Refinished in bright red with a black bed, this handsome half-ton shows just the right amount of gloss, perfectly appropriate to a working vehicle. Nicely assembled, the door gaps are good, the fenders line up well, and that unique side-opening hood sits just right. Theres not a lot of chrome, and the grille has been painted in white as was the fashion of the day, giving the truck an honest, blue-collar look thats extremely appealing. Bumpers are basic black, the bed features beautiful fresh planks and drop-in stake sides, and its still running a single taillight, just like 1950. The interior is spartan, yes, but still stylish in a hard-working way. The bench seat features new black vinyl as original, and the rubber floor mat meant that you could hose the interior out after a long day working out in the field. Dual pods create a symmetrical dashboard design, with only a speedometer and fuel gauge on the drivers side, with controls for the wipers, lights, and ignition in the center. Presumably, the passenger-side pod could hold an AM radio, although as a work vehicle, such equipment would be quite rare. All the gauges are fully operational and it isnt difficult to feel at home behind that big steering wheel. Flip up the side-opening hood and discover Dodges rugged 218 cubic inch inline-six engine, which was a mainstay of Chrysler products for many years. Virtually indestructible, these flathead engines made good torque and ran forever with only basic maintenance. Thanks to a freshly rebuilt carburetor, this one runs smoothly and moves the half-ton pickup very well on city streets, and will cruise happily at 50 MPH all day. Its not detailed for show but its tidy, and from behind the wheel it delivers the true early truck experience. It also features heavy duty oil and air filters and a big radiator that will keep this hard working engine cool no matter what the conditions. Its backed by a 4-speed manual transmission with an ultra-low first gear for slow-speed work, but in most cases you wont need it. The front axles and wheels of all models eight inches further back than the former trucks and moved the engine slightly forward, resulting in shifting more of the payload to the front axle and allowing greater payload ratings without adding heavier rear axle springs. As a result, the Dodge rides and handles extremely well and feels much more car-like than its contemporaries. A set of blackwall radials on the original steel wheels certainly help ride and handling, yet look authentic under the fenders. If youve been looking for a vintage truck to cruise around in, and are tired of all the Fords and Chevys you see these days, perhaps a B-series Dodge is what youve been looking for.

There was a time in the 1980s when the future of performance was not a sure thing. Rear-wheel-drive and big, thirsty V8s were not necessarily the way forward and when Chrysler teamed up with Shelby to create some front-wheel-drive turbocharged 4-cylinder performance cars, the future was very much up for grabs. If youre a Mopar fan who grew up in the 80s, you know this 1987 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z is a cool car, and the performance will still impress you, even today. Someone has cherished this car for the past 30 years and it shows. With only 71,264 original miles, this car has obviously never been a daily driver and its condition suggest its never even seen winter weather. The white paint is in excellent condition and with the facelifted nose that features folding headlights, it looks very forward-thinking for 1987. Its also remarkably bereft of stripes and decals, with only a modest chin spoiler, a slight hood bulge to clear the air intake, and an attractive spoiler out back to set it apart from garden-variety Daytonas. It fits together quite well for an 80s Chrysler product and it has never been wrecked or rusty, as you can tell. Correct Shelby emblems are in their places, again, pretty subtle, but that might be part of this cars appeal. The glass is in excellent shape and I think youll find that there are more fans of these cars than you might expect. The Daytonas handsome tan leather interior is a lot more upscale and, dare I say it, European than its American counterparts. Sculpted leather seats look great and adjust in enough directions that just about anyone should be able to get comfortable, and theres great visibility all around. The fat three-spoke steering wheel is a little dated, as is the rectilinear dashboard, but thats why old cars are fun; they take us back to our youth. That said, the dash is full of useful gauges, the A/C system is easy to understand and use, and theres a more recent Chrysler AM/FM/CD stereo that still sounds good (the original radio is included). A 5-speed manual transmission attached to the turbo motor makes this car a lot of fun to drive and even the back seats have a sculpted look and almost zero wear. In the hatch theres good storage space along with a pair of cool sun visors for back seat passengers and a mint condition cargo cover. In 1987, it was a mistake to under-estimate the 2.2 liter inline-4, which was directly related to the one in the notorious Dodge Omni Shelby GLH-S. A Garret T3 turbocharger boosts the 4-cylinder to Mustang GT levels of horsepower and with a set of fresh injectors from a 2.5 liter engine, a new radiator, a fresh timing belt, plugs and wires, and a 255 LPH fuel pump, its ready to rock. It starts easily with that familiar Chrysler buzz and while theres some turbo lag, youd better be prepared when it comes on line because this Daytona rockets forward all out of proportion to your expectations. The 5-speed shifts cleanly and thanks to fresh KYB struts, handling is at least as good as it was back in the day. Theres also a new left front axle shaft, newer muffler, and have you seen how clean this sucker is underneath? Wow! Factory alloys are virtually unmarked and carry right-sized Kumho performance radials. Seldom seen today, this is an inexpensive way to grab a piece of the 80s, and its a ton of fun to drive. Maybe Chrysler saw the future, they were just a few decades too early. Call today!
This 1927 Dodge coupe was built for the Mopar fan who wants to stand out rather than blend in. Yes, its green, its tall, and it definitely gets attention. But at the same time, its beautifully built, totally streetable, and very affordable. Why drive the same old stuff as everyone else? Isnt hot-rodding about being different? The tall, square Dodge coup body is just begging to be filled with performance, creating the kind of cognitive dissonance that you get from seeing a phone booth hammering down the highway at 80 MPH. The old-fashioned look works quite well, with the Dodge looking far more substantial than your average Model T while still retaining that no-nonsense charm that made the brand famous. The modifications are minimal, just some shaved bumpers (which were optional in 1927 anyway), a Ram hood ornament, body-colored trim, and some diamond-plate running boards. The rest is factory steel thats been straightened and smoothed to look great under that brilliant Sub-Lime paint. Yeah, its going to attract attention which is why they knew they needed to make it right. The doors open and close well, the turtle deck fits flush, and the hood swings on a properly aligned hinge. Simplicity is the rule, so they even skipped the graphics and pinstripes, letting the shape and the paint speak for itself. Check it out, this thing is cool! You need to love bright green, because the interior is as vivid as the bodywork, but again, why blend in? Somehow they found materials for the seats that exactly match the paint, and even the steering column and wheel were treated to a bright green makeover. A real wood dashboard offers some contrast and warmth, and has been filled with dolphin gauges and they, too, have been tinted green to match. A powerful AM/FM/CD stereo in the center of the dash makes road trips easy and a tilt steering column makes the upright driving position comfortable. Obviously theres plenty of headroom, plus decent storage in the fully finished trunk. For pure fun, the 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 provides unmatched performance in the relatively lightweight Dodge. Built to be reliable, it features a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Mallory Unilite distributor, a custom powder coated intake manifold, and a set of block-hugging headers. Custom airbrush work on the air cleaner and valve covers attempts to disguise the GM-in-a-Mopar powerplant and theres a giant radiator up front to keep it cool. The chassis breaks no new ground, sticking with a dropped I-beam front axle on leaf springs, a ladder frame, and a 10-bolt rear end on a set of ladder bars with coil-overs. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission has quick reflexes and the exhaust system sounds spectacular, both at idle and at full bore. The stance is just about perfect and it sits on color-matched steel wheels with baby moon hubcaps, trim rings, and staggered 215/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials. Built purely for fun, this neat little Dodge does something few other rods can do these days: it makes people stop and stare. The fact that it also runs and drives so well is only icing on the cake. Yes, its vivid, but sneaking around was never what hot-rodding was about. Call today!

We feel confident in saying that this is the finest 1971 Dodge D13 pickup truck on the planet. The recipient of a documented, cost-no-object frame-off restoration, its not only beautiful, but packs a stout 340 under the hood, a bunch of creature comforts like cold A/C, and a classic old-school look that Mopar fans will love. Trucks were getting a lot more modern-looking in 1971, but the Dodge retained its old look, and with the hindsight that the decades have brought us, it makes for a really attractive pickup. The bright Seafoam Green paint with a white roof is a period-perfect combination and the finish work is show-quality throughout. The truck was fully disassembled, the cab was removed from the frame, and every inch of metal that needed to be fixed or straightened was treated properly. Panel gaps are exacting, the big hood fits tight, and the finish is deep enough to look right on a show-winning Cadillac, not just a vintage pickup. The white grille up front is an old-school look that works exceptionally well on the D13 and all the weather seals are new, so it closes up tightly. Theres a polished tool box in the bed, which is home to a modern fuel cell, and the floor is diamond-plate, although were pretty sure this truck is just too pretty to do any heavy hauling these days. At first glance, youre probably thinking thats a nicely restored stock interior, and youre partly right. The bench seat and body-colored door panels are pretty much the way it came from the factory, but look again at the stitching on the seat, the handsome four-spoke steering wheel on a tilt column, and the under-dash A/C unit. The factory gauges are handsome laid out in a long panel that should look familiar to any Mopar fan, with a tach neatly installed in the dash just to the right. A Sony AM/FM/CD stereo head unit slots into the dash and sounds great in the newly insulated cab, and just check out how bright the courtesy lights are, something you almost never see. Everything in the truck is show quality and the attention to detail is very impressive. A 340 cubic inch V8 was rebuilt and dropped between the fenders, giving this pickup the moves of a muscle car. Its got less than 500 miles on the build and with a 4-barrel carburetor (although its plumbed up to the engine bay should one want to switch to a fuel injected set-up) and a decent cam inside, its plenty potent to move the pickup without apparent effort. Its beautifully detailed, too, with the bright Hemi Orange engine glowing from within the turquoise engine bay and all the ancillary parts wear factory-style finishes. A reproduction decal on the air cleaner looks right and niceties such as power steering and brakes have been added to make it easy to drive. Youll note a giant aluminum radiator up front, all-new A/C components with R134a refrigerant, and beautifully refinished exhaust manifolds. Its backed by a TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic and an 8.75-inch rear end with 3.25 gears inside, so its easy to live with and doesnt get busy on the highway. The chassis is fully restored and is beautifully framed by the body-colored floors. Theres also a coil spring front suspension, disc brakes, new exhaust, and fresh shocks, plus a full-sized spare hanging out back. The stance was tweaked just a bit and youve probably already noticed the custom-made wheels with dog dish hubcaps and trim rings, designed for slightly wider 235/75/15 front and 31x10.5R15 rear Toyo blackwall radials. If you want the nicest D13, heck, one of the nicest pickups of any kind weve ever featured, this is it. Fully documented with receipts and photos, its every bit as nice as you think it is. Call today!
For those of you tired of the same old Ford and Chevy rods, perhaps this 1933 Dodge cabriolet will be a breath of fresh air. Long, low, and sleek, you get a Mopar take on the early 30s styling, and with a gorgeous interior, folding top, and a genuine HEMI V8 its more than just a unique look. The body is fiberglass, but they seem to have nailed the look, replicating every major detail of the ultra-rare 1933 Dodge cabriolet. The full-fendered look and excellent build quality give this sweet cabrio a very sporting look thats a little bit old school and a little bit 21st century slick. Its fiberglass, so that means that fit and finish are exemplary, with a solid feeling going down the road and gaps that show well, which is particularly important with the bright yellow paint. The raked-back grille and big headlights are definitely a welcome change over the usual stuff and it stands out in a field of Fords, looking a bit bigger and more grown-up. The louvered hood sides are as much styling element as functional upgrade and with a fixed windshield, it has a more substantial look than most roadsters. The door handles were shaved, but it does retain its original hood ornament and emblem, further cementing the illusion. You may have noticed that the Dodge body is a bit longer than the usual Ford or Chevy, and that pays big dividends inside, where theres plenty of room for two folks with long legs. The twin black cloth buckets were obviously borrowed from a late-model and the cloth upholstery will be welcome for sunny top-down cruising. Black carpets help insulate passengers from noise and heat and custom door panels look suitably vintage while including controls for the power windows. Cool white-faced gauges from Classic Instruments are a little bit retro and a little bit modern, which is the perfect choice in this 33 Dodge, and an AM/FM/CD stereo system sounds great. Theres also a billet steering wheel on a tilt column to help you get comfortable and Vintage Air A/C is a welcome addition, made possible by the cabriolets black canvas folding top and roll-up windows that seal up well. The trunk is outfitted to match and uses the same materials for a consistent, high-quality look. A Chrysler 5.7 liter HEMI V8 provides the power, and the fuel-injected powerplant works beautifully in this Dodge. Keeping all the stock running gear from a late-model production car means it starts easily, idles well, and pulls hard, and never seems to get fussy, no matter what the conditions. We love the look of OEM engineering under a retro hood like this, and they went the extra mile to get the firewall smoothed before it went in. A Chrysler 5-speed automatic transmission feeds what appears to be a C3 Corvette independent rear end, so the rest of the powertrain is plenty tough for the rigors of a cross-country cruise. Even better, the fully independent suspension rides rather well and handles great thanks to a rack-and-pinion steering system and A-arms up front. Four-wheel disc brakes should be standard equipment on anything that can go this fast, and it definitely has the right soundtrack with a pair of Flowmasters making the music. Halibrand-style wheels give it just a bit of rake and carry low-profile 175/65/14 front and 235/70/15 rear Michelin radials for a modern look. Stand out from the crowd with this awesome Dodge cabrio and youll probably find that youre not alone in thinking that different is definitely better. Call now!
Daring to be different is great, especially if the different is as good looking as this 1939 Dodge 4-door sedan. With a sleek aerodynamic look, wonderful art-deco styling details, and modern V8 horsepower, its one of those awesome rods that will stand out just by virtue of being something other than a Ford. The bright red paint certainly helps this one grab everyones attention, but its the detailing that will make them look closer. The sleek Dodge sedan has a unique look that was similar to the fastback styling from the other automakers, but the long wheelbase and sleek tail section make it look far more radical than most. Finish quality is quite good, with nice body gaps and a bright shine that can only come from a lot of time invested in buffing and polishing the final finish. Most of the original trim was retained, and it really sparkles against that Torch Red paint. Were particularly fond of the front end, which offers neat details like the dipped front bumper, familiar ram hood ornament, and a very cool grille that seems to reach back to the firewall. Add in a host of vents, speed lines, and stainless trim, and the whole car seems to be in motion like one of those old paintings showing cars at speed. We love the split rear window and it appears that the only notable items that arent stock are the LED taillights, which are shaped like those on a 39 Ford. And it is worth noting that its entirely steel except for the rear fenders, which is important to a lot of rodders. The handsome tan leather interior was finished three years ago and still looks great. Up front you get a pair of power bucket seats from a late-model, while the back seat appears to be borrowed from the same car. New carpets, simple perforated leather door panels, and a custom center console all add to the new car feel. The original dash has been upgraded with a set of very trick Dolphin gauges with green faces, and the 9886 miles shown are since the build was completed. Under the dash there are vents for the A/C system as well as a few secondary controls, while the AM/FM/CD head unit is discreetly tucked into the center console. A B&M shifter on the transmission tunnel manages a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and the tilt column is topped by a fat 4-spoke wheel. And the whole reason you buy a sedan is so you can take the whole family with you, and the giant fully upholstered trunk makes it easy. A familiar 350 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 lives under the pointed hood and it was rebuilt to stock specs when the car was built. Its got some chrome dress-up pieces, a polished intake, and a big 4-barrel carburetor, all of which work together to make it run great and look cool. A big aluminum radiator and R134a refrigerant in the A/C system (needs to be recharged) make it a trusted highway cruiser for long hauls and service access is pretty good. Power front disc brakes and power steering come complements of a Camaro subframe and the dual Flowmasters give it a wonderfully mellow exhaust note. A 10-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears inside makes the car feel lively around town, but theyre easily tamed by the overdrive gear in the transmission. Its got just the right rake, augmented by a set of flashy Ridlr wheels and 17-inch performance radials. Nicely documented with receipts and build photos, this handsome Dodge stands out both in terms of quality and rarity. Why do what everyone else is doing when the alternative looks this good?

Back in the early 60s, you could buy a turn-key racecar from your local Dodge dealer, and it would look a lot like this 1964 Dodge Polara 500 hardtop. Of course, the full-race machines were incredibly rare, but the guys who knew their hardware also knew that when they saw a car that looked like this industrial-strength Mopar, they should probably steer well clear of it lest they get badly hurt. Make no mistake, this no-nonsense Polara carries what appears to be its original 426 Street Wedge engine, a more user-friendly version of the full-race piece. It also offers the same bare-knuckle street fighter look that screams high performance in a very low-key way. The bodywork is super straight, almost like it rolled out of the factory just a few years ago, and it shows off the work of guys who knew their stuff. They didnt have to work very hard since this was a clean, dry car with no major issues to handle. It has been refinished in its original code P Ruby Red, so maybe its not designed to be subtle, but even in red, most guys wont know whats coming until its too late. Chryslers turbine look was in fashion in 1964, and they retained all the chrome and stainless trim on this one to enhance the sleeper look. To guys who know what theyre looking at, this car is gorgeous. As for everyone else, well, dont say we didnt warn you. Just because it was built to pound the pavement doesnt mean it wasnt also comfortable and stylish inside. With big-car comfort and sporty twin buckets flanking a stock center console, it balances just the right amount of flash with no-nonsense attitude. The interior is in excellent condition, with nice seat covers, plush carpets, and a surprisingly well-preserved dash pad. The gauges are original and in good condition, and theyre joined by a vintage tach on the steering column, supplanting the original one in the console, which sadly isnt working. Yes, thats a Hurst 4-speed in the center console, which really emphasizes the no-nonsense vibe of this Polara, and the wheel has a leather wrap to make it easy to grab. For effect, it retains the original AM radio (it doesnt work and you wont miss it), and theres even a full-sized spare in the well-detailed trunk to help with ballast. The engine is the cars original 426 cubic inch Street Wedge V8. Not related to the Hemi, it nevertheless was one of the most feared powerplants on the streets in the early days of the horsepower wars. Its largely stock save for an Edelbrock carburetor, and they obviously went out of their way to make it look as stock as possible. That means a stock air cleaner, stamped valve covers, Hemi Orange paint on the block, and those wild exhaust manifolds that just barely clear the shock towers. A 2.5-inch exhaust system is equipped with aggressive mufflers, and youd better believe this sucker sounds nasty. The aforementioned 4-speed manual gearbox feeds the stock rear end full of 3.91 gears on a Sure-Grip limited slip, so the sucker is seriously fast on the roll. Clean floors, recent shocks, and period Cragar mags with fat 245/60/15 Dunlop radials round out the package. They say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but this one is beautiful to the guy holding the time slips. A great cruiser that still has the moves. Call today!
With a lot of recent work and a few tasteful upgrades, this brightly finished 1953 Dodge pickup is almost too nice to be a truck. When we think of trucks, we think of workhorses and tools, not bright white pleasure vehicles, but this one is nice enough that youll probably think twice about throwing a load of lumber in the bed. Dodge was due to give its trucks a major facelift in 1955, so for fans of the early post-war styling of this D100, heres your opportunity to pick up one of the last of the breed. The white finish is pure 1950s cool and has a lovely shine to it, and was applied over some very straight bodywork. The Dodge trucks were technologically ahead of their Ford and Chevy competition, with the faired-in front fenders that blended into the doors, and a relocated front axle that helped increase the Dodges payload capacity, and it gives the D100 a very unique, functional look. Of course, being a truck, theres not much chrome, with most of the trim items being painted white to match the bodywork, including the grille and bumpers, but a few bright pieces makes it stand out that much more. Theres also some tasteful red pinstripe work and a Veed windshield that really helps with the clean, unadorned shape. The refinished bed shows quite well, and it includes a set of matching side rails and a flush-fitting tonneau cover. The simple bench seat interior has been reupholstered in matching red and black vinyl, and theres plenty of room for three abreast seating inside the bright cab. The simple metal dash is painted to match the body, and the basic gauge cluster ahead of the driver delivers basic information. The 4-speed transmission is fun to row through the gears, and you can tell from the symmetrical design of the dashboard that both left- and right-hand drive models were intended. Theres an aftermarket radio over on the drivers side, but its not working and is due for an upgrade anyway. Black carpets and simple Dodge rubber floor mats make maintenance as easy as hosing it out after a day in the fields, but I think this trucks working days are over. The standard engine in half-ton Dodge pickups was the rugged and anvil-reliable 218 cubic inch flathead six, which, in stock form, made a nice, round 100 horsepower. This one looks mostly stock save for an Offenhauser split intake manifold with dual carburetors, and twin exhaust manifolds for dual exhaust. Given the gearing and intended use of the trucks, the upgrades are an excellent choice, adding power that can be used in todays traffic and never feeling over-worked. Of course, its pretty hard to kill one of these, with their bulletproof internals, and the wiring is recent. The engines current condition suggests that it actually led an easy life in a dry climate and it runs beautifully without any fussiness. Regular maintenance seems to have been part of the owners recipe for longevity, and it spins to life easily and drives as it should. The brakes work well, the transmission shifts easily, and the ride is surprisingly comfortable given its age. 15-inch chrome wheels with baby moon hubcaps are the right look for a mild 50s custom, and it sits on fat 245/60/15 white-letter radials. Handsome, reliable, and fun, this unusual Dodge is a great way to enjoy the old car hobby with something thats not quite what everyone else is driving. Call today!
Although some guys will argue that the muscle car era ended in 1970, this 1972 Dodge Charger suggests otherwise. With dramatic fuselage styling, a great-running 340 under the hood (you know, the same one they used in the Challenger T/A), and a bucket seat interior, its easy to make the argument that this nicely restored car has earned its muscle car stripes. Any Mopar draped in dramatic Hemi Orange is going to attract attention, especially when the restoration is as comprehensive as this one seems to be. The new Charger styling has strong links to the earlier models, from the chrome-ringed nose to the almost full-width taillights, and with an all-new body, comfort took a great stride forward. Its rare for someone to spend big restoring one of these, but with values creeping up each year, there is a time in the not-too-distant future when it may seem like a bargain. Thats why the bodywork still looks so good even after a few years, and while its not perfect, it certainly does get some attention on the street. And I dont know where they found such beautifully preserved taillights, but everything is done better than youd expect for a second-gen Challenger. The interior should look familiar to any Mopar fan, with a pair of high-backed buckets, a Tuff wheel, and big, round gauges. Like the exterior, everything is in decent condition overall and they kept to the stock recipe for best results. Dodge continued with the separate round instruments, and this one includes a bunch of useful gauges instead of the usual idiot lights. The three-spoke steering wheel is pure 1970s kitch, and this one sports an unusual column shifter that seems anachronous in a muscle car but actually makes it pretty comfortable to use in the real world. Factory A/C is a nice feature (needs to be serviced) and in the trunk and youll find a correct mat and exactly zero evidence this car has ever been rusty or wrecked because those are original quarter panels with factory undercoating inside. Small blocks were the future of performance in 1972, and the 340 under the hood of this Charger delivers V8 performance with the mass of a big block wrecking the handling. As a result, these all-new Chargers are great cars on the road, with plenty of power and an attitude that actually makes you want to find a twisty road. You can see where the big money was spent on this car, with the 340 nicely detailed and ready to rock. Mopar Turquoise replaced Hemi Orange as the standard engine enamel, although the bright orange air cleaner assembly ties it all together. The factory A/C compressor still dominates the top of the engine compartment and both power steering and power front disc brakes are included. Underneath its pretty original but the floors are in good order, theres a new Flowmaster exhaust system, and the gas tank looks recent. Blacked-out steel wheels with dog dish hubcaps and 235/70/15 blackwall radials offer a no-nonsense look that works quite well. The markets always moving, and these Chargers are going to join their older siblings on the hot list very soon. Call today!
If we could, wed stock all the Streetside Classics showrooms with nothing but 1968-1970 Dodge Chargers. They sell and they sell FAST! So if youre admiring this attractive 1968 Dodge Charger, complete with a gnarly 440, pick up the phone and call right now because theres no way itll be here next week. Chrysler totally nailed the muscle car look with the Charger, and right out of the gate, the 68s changed the game forever. This one is dressed in bright blue, now rendered in modern urethane paint so the shine is fantastic. The dramatically curved body is in good overall condition with crisp details and very good panel alignment, all critical on a car where every panel needs the one next to it to look right. Its got a few signs of use and age, and you could erase some of the issues with a professional cut and buff. Cool 1968 details include the little round side marker lights and the round taillights that look like jet exhaust ports or something, not to mention the full-width grille and hidden headlights, which snap open when you hit the switch. The flying roofline wasnt aerodynamic enough for NASCAR but looks like a million bucks on the street and is one of the Chargers finest features. Nice chrome bumpers and correct R/T badges round out a car thats built to cruise, not for a trailer. The custom bucket seat interior is mostly Charger, but now finished with comfortable cloth upholstery thats a lot better than the original sticky vinyl. Blue piping makes it look neatly tailored and matching black door panels with a taut headliner give the Charger an intimate feel inside, all anchored by black carpets and a matching dash. The factory gauges are original and showing their age, but a trio of aftermarket gauges under the dash keeps an eye on the engines vitals. A modern AM/FM/CD stereo is in the center of the dash and a trick B&M shifter manages the TorqueFlite underneath. The trunk could use a new mat but its in otherwise good shape. Thats a thumping 440 cubic inch V8 under the hood, rebuilt for combat and ready to rock. Its nicely detailed and has been upgraded with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and Performer intake manifold, Mallory ignition system, and a set of headers. With a solid wall of big block torque behind you, this car always feels fast and throttle response is crisp. The 727 automatic transmission feels robust as you bang through the gears and the tough Dana 60 rear end doesnt seem to mind spinning the tires now and then. The suspension was lowered slightly which gives it an awesome rake and its a look to match the soundtrack from the Flowmaster dual exhaust system. The floors are quite clean although not shiny and perfect, and the rear suspension is augmented with a set of traction bars to help that 440 plant the torque. Old school Cragar chrome mags look great on the Chargers sleek bodywork and carry fat 245/60/15 white-letter radials. These cars are insanely popular and this one gets all the big stuff right: great looks, big engine, lots of power, and no issues. Like I said, if youve read this far, it might already be too late.

Some of our favorite creations are the cars that the factory could have built but didnt. This 1968 Dodge Dart is such a machine, a street version of the Hemi drag cars Chrysler built to dominate the strip. With 472 cubic inches, B5 Blue paint, and a power-to-weight ratio of, say, a cruise missile, its one mans ultimate Mopar. Dodges flyweight Dart proved the old adage that taking weight out was just as effective as putting horsepower in. But what if you did both, then painted it Mopars favorite color, B5 Blue? Well, youd have this incredible Dart. Built from a rust-free V8 car, it was treated to the best of everything, professionally engineered, and fully sorted on the mean streets. The little Dart is one of Chryslers best styling efforts, clearly Mopar but not ashamed to be mid-sized. A few modifications get it closer to its race car roots, including fiberglass front fenders and rear fenders that were subtly re-sized to handle the giant meats underneath. The brilliant show-quality paint means that keeping it on the DL is going to be a challenge, and with that gaping garage door of a hood scoop, you need to be careful that the Hemi doesnt inhale any small birds. All the chrome was refinished to show standards, the stainless was polished, and theres just no such thing as a race car that ever looked this good. The interior is anything but race car basic, wearing fresh upholstery by Legendary, which includes a pair of simply gorgeous bucket seats. The Darts original dash was retained and all the gauges rebuilt, but theyre augmented with a high-mounted tach and oil pressure gauge that look suitably vintage, and theyre both a good idea with almost 700 horsepower on tap. There is no radio and Im disappointed that youd even ask, because the sound of the Hemi should be more than adequate. A Hurst 4-speed shifter with reverse lock-out has been mounted between the seats and works even better than the old pistol-grip setup you might have admired when this car was new. The back seat is gone and theres a cage that makes it moot anyway, but it has been beautifully upholstered back there suggesting that this was a very expensive build. Even the side windows are Lexan, just to keep it authentic. The trunk is correctly detailed with a reproduction and carries the battery, because theres just no room left under the hood. The reason for that is the 472 cubic inch crate Hemi thats rated at a mind-boggling 680 horsepower. With a Mopar Performance cross-ram intake, dual 850 Holleys, and a lot of chrome, its both scary fast and beautiful to look at. Inside theres an Eagle crank, Scat H-beam rods, Ross 10.75:1 pistons, and a Comp Cams solid lifter camshaft. The inner fenders and firewall have been smoothed and painted, and theres a correct Hemi K-member to hold it in place. And while theres no power steering or brakes, the car remains quite street-friendly. The transmission is an A833 18-spline 4-speed fed by a Centerforce clutch and spinning a Dana 60 with 4.10 gears on a limited slip. Front discs and rear drums make up the braking system, and the custom exhaust system is a work of art all by itself. The floors are finished as beautifully as the bodywork and the tub is reinforced with a set of weld-in subframe connectors. It even captures the vintage race vibe with Cragar mags and 6.70-15 skinnies up front and 10.5x29.5-15 slicks in back. With build documents and only test and tune miles, this is one brutal performance car that you can buy with confidence and enjoy with impunity. Call today!

Here is a very good running and driving car that you do not see everyday. It is a 1978 Dodge Aspen Wagon with the never die Slant 6 engine. These slant 6 engines will run forever. This car came from factory with power steering, power brakes and air condition. The heat works and all the stuff is still in place for the AC but it does not blow cold. It is a very solid body with original paint with only surface rust. I call it great Patina. It has a roof rack that would be prefect to throw a surf board on and make a surf wagon. There is a small crease on the left passenger door but other than that it is good. The interior is in excellent condition. The seats, door panels and carpet look great. The headliner is not torn anywhere but it is sagging some. The dash pad has a couple cracks. The speedometer works as do all the lights. The tires are good and it has a spare tire and jack. The undercarriage is very solid. The floor pans look good. It has not been clean up or under coated so you can tell what you got. This is just a good car to drive and enjoy without breaking the bank.
Runs and drives great! Power brakes, power steering, tilt wheel.
1970 Challenger R/T 440 six pack clone with recently rebuilt engine for performance increase. Excellent track or show car, while I have not run it on track I was informed that it was a 7 second 1/8 mile car. It drives amazing and feels like you're in the movie Vanishing Point. It has the look, feel, and sound of the true muscle cars. It will be hard letting this go, but I am hoping that someone that loves to drive and loves the feel of true power will take the wheel.

You could build a car like this, but it wouldnt be easy. It would require not only lots of time and money, but the expertise of a team of professionals to bring it all together into a complete package that works the way it was intended. There are some individuals out there that can do it all themselves, but for the rest of us mortals, you can just buy this car and reap the benefits of the team that Musclecar TV brought together to build this Business Time! project during season 7. Check it out. Lets start by describing the body and look of this car. It definitely stands out in a crowd with that Green paint! Alternately called Loud Green or Intoxicating Green, it grabs your attention. The hood is painted flat black with Hemi shining through announcing what is underneath it. The car has been lowered down and has a bit of rake to the chassis which, along with those massive tires in the back, gives it a sinister stance. A blacked-out grill has a bright green pinstripe through the middle and there is a custom front bumper with stamped and dimpled holes. From the rear, you gotta know that the chassis has been tubbed in order to fit those tires under there. The lights on this car subscribe to the minimalist philosophy with the turn signals and brake lights deleted, although the running lights all work. When you open the door and scope out the interior, there is little doubt that this cars project name is appropriate. Its all about business. The first thing you notice is a lightweight door panel and the 10-point roll cage with a swing out bar for easy entry and exit. Have a seat in the custom bucket seats outfitted with RCI racing harnesses and get yourself settled in. Make sure you can reach the Painless Wiring switch panel with clearly labeled rocker switches, and the TCI outlaw pistol grip shifter for the trans while you are strapped in for business, and then take a hold of the Grant GT steering wheel. In front of you is a full complement of Summit, back lit gauges to help you keep track of fuel level, oil pressure, water temp, voltage and (spoiler alert), boost. There is a programable racing tach with shift light mounted to the roll cage where you cant miss it, even under pressure. Now to the incredible engine they built that makes this Mopar a brute on the street, as well as the chassis mods that make it a contender on the track. Be sure to ask your salesperson about the build sheet for this car for more complete details. A late model Hemi block was bored and stroked to 426 cubic inches, topped with Thitek G III custom cylinder heads, then pressurized by an Edelbrock E-Force supercharger. Comp Cams supplied a custom ground billet roller camshaft, and Harland billet rocker arms transfer the lift the valves. The best equipment from Wiseco, ARP, Melling and Milodon assure a strong, well lubed bottom end and a Holley Dominator fuel pump with HP regulator feeds DeatschWerks fuel injectors. Its pumping out about 900 HP!! That power flows back through a TCI 4L80E 6X overdrive trans to a Moser engineering Dana 60 with 4.56 gears and a True Trac, 35 spline posi. An S&W Race Cars 4-link rear suspension gets the power to the ground through 33X18.5-15 street legal slicks mounted on Weld Racing wheels. Up front, theres a Reilly Motorsports AlterKtion Coil over setup handling things and Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes assure that you can haul this ride back down from speed. Well built by the guys on Musclecar TV and the team of pros that back them up. Just waiting to be well driven by you.
