Classic Car Overview
1972 Dodge Charger During the early-1960s, automakers were exploring new ideas in the personal luxury and specialty car segments. Chrysler, fast to enter the specialty car market, selected their Dodge Division to enter the marketplace with a mid-size B-bodied sporty car to fit between the pony car Ford Mustang and personal luxury Ford Thunderbird. The intention was to create a fastback look while sharing as much existing company hardware as possible. Have you ever owned the very best of something? You know: the top dog, the big kahuna, NUMERO UNO? Well, if youre into classic Mopar muscle, you know the very best FACTORY cars usually translate to mega dollars; but what about the very best MUSCLE cars? Freshly restored and powered by a reliable 360ci V8 this 1972 Dodge Charger is guaranteed to provide you with a level of visceral excitement and adrenaline fueled satisfaction that a pampered and paraded trailer queen simply cant match. The beneficiary of a 3 year restoration with many new parts and of course that upgraded engine and you will be in the MOPAR muscle car show game and have a head turner when you drive down Main Street in total 72 style. Exterior The high quality frame up restoration began with a super clean original body that was stripped, sanded and massaged to better than showroom condition. Once the straight panels lined up correctly and this Chargers intimidating slab-sided ambiance was fully reconstructed, an eye searing coat of Bright Harvest Gold paint was expertly applied under a slick black Ramcharger hood stripe and upper belt line racing stripe encircling the passenger compartment. Up front, a tough looking body-width electric shaver grille hangs a showroom fresh emblem and four hidden headlights above clear parking lights, and a spoiler less chin panel. A new vinyl top has been applied and gracing the rear trunk deck is a satin black painted spoiler. Add-on Cooper Cobra raised white lettered Radial G/Ts complete with black painted wheels and a White Hat Boys standard shiny center cap. The net result is a spectacular looking pavement pounder which elicits comments and stares every time it hits the road. All of this Chargers panels are ultra-straight, all of its jambs are fully detailed and, for the price youll be hard pressed to find a more visually appealing original hidden headlight version of the 72 Mopar. Interior Sit down inside this great looking Charger and youll find a nicely restored black vinyl interior that is accented with tasteful wood and stainless trim. The Legendary seat covers, fresh carpets and tight headliner all present as new and are recently upgraded and installed during the total restoration. All the while the door panels and full length console are probably well-preserved originals. That original console houses a correct slap stick shifter for the cars A727 transmission. In front of the driver, the cars original dash has been recovered and holds original deep round gauges, a digital AM/FM radio and an aluminum three spoke steering wheel. Behind the cockpit, a clean original vinyl mat and housing the spare and jack. Also, a shout out to the control panel hanging just below the dash for the FI-Tech fuel injection, and next to it an aftermarket tachometer. Drivetrain Lift the long, freshly finished hood and youll find a fully detailed 360ci V8 that wears a new coat of Hemi orange paint. At the top of that engine, a chrome badged air cleaner feeds Fi-Tech fuel injection. At the sides of the intake, handsome Mopar Performance aluminum valve covers hold new chrome caps above ceramic coated TTI long tube headers. In front of the motor, fresh V-belts spin a new alternator and a full assortment of billet pulleys while an aluminum radiator sends fluid through fresh hoses and a sweet looking machined thermostat housing. No corrosion anywhere here for any of the bolt ons, and on the way back is an 8-3/4-inch rear axle. Undercarriage As with the body of the car, clean is the name of the game down below; original undercoating still protects the solid floors and frame from Mother Natures worst while a new fuel tank and fuel lines ensure safety and reliability. Up front, a good looking factory suspension has been upgraded with new bushings and rides as torsion bar suspension. Out back, we note leaf springs and air shocks now on. At the center of the car, a fresh mandrel bent H pipe, aluminized exhaust system sends spent gases past the driveshaft, through stainless steel mufflers and out the back of the car. Power disc brakes are upfront, and power drums stop the rear. Just a bit of some earlier invasive rust damage can be seen on the rear just behind the wheel well in the form of a hole, but its only reserved to the underside metal. Drive-Ability Turn the ignition switch and the great sounding motor springs to life with a little help from a new battery and settles into a rumbling high-performance idle, hot or cold. All this Mopar goodness propels one forward in a significant manner. All good on the functionality front. It truly was an enjoyable drive. Cars like this unibody up restored 72 Charger are what make this hobby fun. It combines a slew of trophy winning ingredients with a price that is substantially lower than most freshly completed muscle cars and enough firepower to humble even modern performance cars. Best of all, in a sea of traditional, over-exposed big block Mopars, youll have a unique car that can be driven and enjoyed for years to come.
