The 1974 Dodge Charger represented the final year for the big coupe of the muscle car era. So it's great to find an extra-sleek example with the right Rallye package look and plenty of V8 power under the hood.
Dark Silver Metallic is the factory correct color, and it received a professional respray later in life to keep this one looking sleek and premium. And the full-length red and yellow stripe upholds the tradition that Mopars were often the boldest around. This coloful streak is part of the Charger's premium Rallye package. It was one of the most distinct looks of the era, and this one carries the right pieces of a Charger Rallye. That means the aggressive power bulge hood and hood pins are correct, too. You can see how much care this car has received over the years when you look at how straight the sheetmetal is on this exceptionally long coupe. This was built right before the bumper laws dictated style, and so you have some of the most impressive ones ever put on a car. Up front the chrome king surrounds the grille and frames the headlights, and in the rear, it's integrated into the design on the sheetmetal and taillights. Add in the fastback profile, classic Mopar road wheels, and integrated rear spoiler, and this Charger has that perfect mix of vintage sporty and upscale.
The black interior coordinates nicely against the silver exterior, and this car was born with this well-done color combo. The premium button-top bucket seats offer some of the best comfort of the time. And speaking of luxury, the black interior is tastefully broken up by wood paneling on the door panels, dashboard, and factory three-spoke steering wheel. The Rallye instrument cluster was part of the Rallye package, and that means you get a large speedo and tach. This is such an overall vintage and correct atmosphere that even the Mopar AM/FM radio and factory air conditioning controls are still on display (these will need servicing to function against.) In fact, the only upgrade you're likely to spot in this well-preserved package is a cleanly installed auxiliary gauge trio. It gets you ready for something nice under the hood.
One of the mightiest motors from the muscle car era was the 383 cubic-inch V8. Unfortunately, it was no longer available in the Charger in 1974, but this one rectifies that mistake. So the callout on the bold orange air grabber isn't lying. The big block V8 has even been enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock 383 intake. This one fires up readily and makes a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust w/Flowmasters. The undercarriage photos show a clean car with newer components. And the rear sway bar is another feature of the Rallye. Plus, with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs, you'll truly have an easy time behind the wheel.
This is the final year for a historic generation of Mopar muscle. So you know one that looks this good and is priced this right won't wait around for long. Call today!!!
