1974 Dodge Challenger
1974, the last year for the E-body Challenger

1974 Dodge Challenger

This would be that last year of the E-body Challenger. For 1974, the Challenger was unchanged from the 1973 models. It still had all the same features and options and you could still get the Rallye package. The Rallye package still included the side scoops, the tape stripes, two hood scoops, special wheels, and F70 x 14 raised white letter tires.

* High Performance Available Transmissions Axle Decoding Location Of Axle Codes: A metal tag is bolted to the assembly, giving the axle ratio or tooth count (if tooth count - divide the larger number by the smaller number, this is the ratio.) Locking axles have a metal tag with the letter "S" on it. Note: Since tags can easily be missing, the approximate ratio can be determined by marking both the a wheel and the driveshaft; turn the wheel one complete turn and the number of times the driveshaft rotates is the ratio. Locking axles can be identified by raising the complete axle assembly and turning one wheel; if the other wheel turns the the same direction it is a locking axle and if it turns the opposite direction it is a non-locking axle.
