800 Derita Road, Ste. A
A sleek body, serious V8 power, and even little details (like the pistol-grip shifter) make for a great classic coupe. That's why this 1972 Dodge Challenger is an awesome muscle Mopar.
The Challenger is a terrific-looking coupe. A bit of furrowed brow at the front, a long hood, and a Coke bottle kind of profile really make for a stylish machine. It only gets better on a car with well-fitting panels highlighted in a shining metallic blue. This coupe also has a well-done dark side. It starts with the matte black stripe that forms around the dual hood scoops. Plus, the blackout grille, blackout rear panel, full-length rubber rub strips, and Go Wing rear spoiler make it a well-coordinated look. And everything from the wide quad exhaust tips, to the Rallye wheels have that right look of Mopar performance.
The interior looks good in black. Good carpeting, a taut headliner, and a smooth dash give this a quality feel. Plus, the seats look good and have a blue velour insert for added style and comfort. The Challenger's interior was one of the best in the era for enveloping the driver. The center console forms around you and gives you a direct line to the iconic pistol-grip shifter. The dual-spoke sports steering wheel gives you a clear view to the full gauge package. And you may have noticed this one also has upgraded auxiliary readouts and a large Sun Super Tach. It's a clear indication of something special under the hood.
The 318 cubic-inch V8 is already a Mopar legend for power and robustness, and it only takes a moment to spot that this one builds off of that reputation. It's enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, dual remote oil filters, finned Mopar valve covers, and long-tube headers feeding an H-pipe dual exhaust. We're also told this has a mild cam, and the exhaust note really announces that. The 727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission is a great pairing for stout construction and easy driving. There's also power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As for a great all-around cruising coupe.
The sale comes complete with restoration photos so you can see all the work that went into this one. This is a sharp, powerful, and awesome classic Mopar, so don't miss your chance to take it home. Call now!
