Description for Dodge Challenger 1973

To start with, et me first say that I am listing this '73 Challenger 340 for a well-known classic and muscle car dealership and in doing so, will be acting as an agent for this dealership. The owner, ho is a friend and someone that I have known for over 20 years, span>founded his dealership in 1996 and has been a veteran of the car business for over 30 years. All of his vehicles are chosen for the highest standards and quality. A careful and complete analysis is done on every one before they offered for sale.

Let me also say that I understand that there is a lot of information in my ad. I also understand that this may be boring to the person who is just looking and not buying. However, or the person who is looking to buy and spend their hard earned money, feel that there is never too much information.

As to myself, am not a dealer, ust a (66) year old kid that loves muscle cars. For my work, am retired from managing a Correctional Facility here in Maine and had worked for the Maine Department of Corrections for (40) years. I am also a respected member of my community. I mention this only because of the value of this car and so that prospective buyers will have some idea as to who they are dealing with.Also, lease check out my eBay feedback as I have only one negative feedback which I believe I should not have received but you be the judge.Many of those transactions have been muscle cars which I have sold to individuals all over the country as well as Canada, ngland, rance, witzerland and Australia.


Just a little history on the Dodge Challenger:

The Challenger project was first started in about 1965 as Dodge's answer to the pony car. Stylist Carl Cameron refined the car for some time, nd, y 1968, hey were building 1970 Challenger prototypes.

Dodge was the last one to the pony car party, ut it spent its time wisely, erfecting its entry, he Challenger. The Challenger debuted with an engine lineup that ranged from a docile slant six to the powerful 440 Six Barrel and the awesome 426 Hemi. Other pony cars could only dream of a line up like that.The Dodge Challenger was based on the Plymouth Barracuda platform, ut its wheelbase was stretched by two inches to provide more interior room. The Challenger was offered in both hardtop and convertible versions.

Performance versions wore the R/T (Road/Track) badge and either the base or R/T model could be ordered with the SE luxury package.But Dodge had one more trick up its sleeve. In order to race in the Sports Car Club of America's Trans American Sedan Championship, t built a street version of its race car which it called the Dodge Challenger T/A (Trans Am).

By 1972, he convertible version and all the big-block engine options were gone. Maximum power was also downgraded to 240horsepower to reflect the more accurate Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) net hp calculations. The 1972 models also received a new grille that extended beneath the front bumper.

The 1973 models were no longer available with a six-cylinder engine. For 1974, he 340cuin engine was replaced by a 360cuin version, ut the pony car market had deteriorated and production of Challengers ceased in mid 1974.

Enough for the history lesson. Now on to this rare and beautiful 1973 (TX9) black Challenger 340ci 4-speed.
