Mopar people know the significance of the 1974 Dodge Challenger. It was the final year for these first generation muscle cars, and its model year was even cut short, making it the rarest of these E-bodies. But just in case you weren't already tempted by rarity, you'll be drawn in by the bold iconic paint and growling upgraded V8 power.
The Challenger's shape is one of the most popular muscle car profiles in history, but there's something more on this one that makes it look exceptionally nice. The upgrade to Hemi Orange paint instantly makes this Mopar look bold and speedy. And because this is a more modern application, the gloss loves to showcase how straight the well-defied creases are in the body panels. Against this bright and bold paint is a well-coordinated dark side with the black full-width rear spoiler, blacked-out rear panel, and the matte black hood stripe. The aggression continues on features like the hood pins and double scoop with callouts. And you'll also love the brightwork on this one, because the chrome bumpers love to hug the body's form, and the upgraded torque thrust style alloys are wider in the rear to emphasize where the rubber meets the road.
All the black accenting on the outside get you ready for the full black interior. You can tell they invested nicely to keep this one feeling fresh, including newer seat covers on the high-back bucket seats. You'll slip behind the dual-spoke sports steering wheel, and this one really feels like a driver's machine. That's why the center console forms around you and includes an upgraded tach.
The hood callouts weren't lying. This has a big 383 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. Not only is this larger than anything offered in '74, but also they upgraded it further with go fast goodies like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock performer intake, and long tube headers that add power while contributing to the thunder of the dual exhaust. And you have full control over this enhanced power thanks to the reverse manual valve body on the three-speed transmission. This is a strong-runner, and you also have the right supporting components like an MSD ignition and aluminum radiator. Plus, there's power steering and power brakes w/discs up front for solid driving confidence.
The 383 V8 and Hemi Orange are both Challenger pieces from the prime muscle car era, and so it's great to have it on this rare final year example. So you've got a very hot Mopar that's ready for your garage. Call today!!!
