If you have any questions on my car, please just e-mail me and ask away. This car is basically 100% complete with no missing parts. It is a non-running project car with a complete 1972 440-4V big block 727 automatic drive train out of my 1972 Chrysler New Yorker. Typical E-body rust on the car. Frame rails are absolutely mint. Needs a full restoration like most of them do. Still wearing some of the original GE7 burnished red metallic acrylic enamel paint from 1974 and all body panels are still original to the car as well. Never wrecked or abused. Just needs a full restoration back to all original. Very rare 1974 only color of GE7 burnished red metallic. The only year they painted E-bodies this color. Title is 100% clear and in our name. Has not been tagged in many years though. Car comes with two complete sets of rims and tires.

 

A 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 dually has come up for sale in my area of Oklahoma that I really want, so I am gonna let this car of mine here go. Don't really want to sell it as I have owned it for many years, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices in order to get what you really want in life. I have owned this 1974 Dodge Challenger Rallye car for about 14-15 years now. My plan was to take it back to all original since it's so rare. I have collected a ton of 1974 only Challenger parts for it as well. If it was a 1974 date coded Challenger part, I bought it for the car. Tons of parts come with this car. I will try to get pictures of most of it here in the next few days.

The drive train that comes with it is a 1972 440-4V drive train out of my 1972 Chrysler New Yorker as I stated before. The original 100% numbers matching motor and transmission out of that car. It did run good when it was pulled out of the car by me years ago. It has sat in my shop ever since then, so it might need to be rebuilt or it might not? I have no idea really. It's a 50/50 thing that it might run or not. It was never put into the 1974 Rallye Challenger because I wanted to do a full restoration on the car before that happened.

The car does need a full restoration, but it could be driven like it is as a ratty muscle car if you wanted to go that route? This car does have the typical E-body rust and needs new full rear 1/4 panels on both sides, a full trunk pan with trunk extensions on the sides and a partial front floor pan patch on the driver's side. The floors up front are surprisingly nice with low rust. Rear floors are mint as can be. Just needs a driver's side floor pan patch in one spot and that's it. I did notice one small section of the tail panel rotted out on the driver's side in back there but it's easily fixable. There was also a spot on the firewall that was rotted out as well, but it's small and very fixable. Both doors are solid except for some small rot in the front lower corners of them. Passenger's side front floor pan is nice and needs nothing really. The fenders are solid as well, but do need small patches on the lower side of them on both side.

The rocker panels did have some rust in them as well, but nothing extremely major. I also noticed some rust and pitting starting along the drip rail moldings in the rain gutters that run along the roof on both sides. Even though this is a vinyl top originally, the roof is really really solid. I also noticed some rust out starting in the front low side of the rear wheel wells but it's minor and not a big deal at all. All this rust is very fixable and not an issue at all in my eyes. The deck lid and hood are original to the car and are basically mint. I did see one little rot out spot on the deck lid but it was not on the rear lip. It was towards the front of it on the under structure (frame work). Easy fix on that.

The hood has no rust at all that I could tell and is super nice. Front and rear valances are absolutely cherry. The first rear valance is a super nice original 1973-74 Challenger dual exhaust rear valance. The second rear valance is a legit 1973-74 Challenger non-dual exhaust NOS rear valance like the car had when it was new since it's a 1974 318 Rallye car. 1972-74 318 Rallye Challengers never had dual exhaust rear valances from the factory. This car started life as a 318-2V equipped GE7 burnished red metallic (dark burgundy) 1974 Dodge Challenger Rallye with a black bucket seat console shift automatic black interior, a full black vinyl top and black Rallye stripes coming off of the lower fender scoops/vents that run down onto both doors on either side of the car. The original 8 3/4 dog leg (non-Sure Grip) rear end with the rear sway bar is still in place in back there and is very nice shape. This car is loaded out with options and is a legit 2 fender tag car because of all the options it has. Check out the fender tag pics to see all the options this car had when it was new.

The original door sticker is still in place and is very nice on the driver's side door jamb there. I don't know what the original wheels were as I only found bits and pieces of a build sheet. It either had 1974 style 14 inch Rallye wheels or 1974 style Magnum 500 road wheels. This was a really cool car when it was brand new. This car has spent many years here in Oklahoma and I think probably sold new here somewhere here in the state. It was owned by that one guy who runs Road Runner Auto Sales there in Drumright, Oklahoma at one time. Then a guy I knew named Mike bought it off of him and he had it in the Claremore/Verdigris, Oklahoma area for awhile. I got the car off of Mike and have owned it ever since then.

E-mails only please.

I don't have that many free minutes on my phone, so please e-mail me by pressing the contact button in the right hand side of the page. I don't want my phone number handed out to 50 different people either. So, that's another reason why I don't list my phone number as a contact here. If you are serious about purchasing my car? I will gladly give you my cell phone number via e-mail so you can talk to me on the phone about the car. Absolutely no tire kickers, scammers or crooks. Please do not waste my time. Thank you for understanding.

 

 

History of the 1970-1974 Dodge Challenger

Chrysler’s E-body platform debuted in 1970 as a base for Plymouth’s latest Barracuda and Dodge’s all-new Challenger. Rolling on a longer wheelbase (110 inches, compared to 108), the Challenger appeared in hardtop and convertible forms with either six-cylinder or V8 power. A prestigious Special Edition sports hardtop and performance-conscious R/T package also were available either separately or together. Standard for the R/T, offered from 1970 to ’71, was the 335-horsepower 383 Magnum V8. R/T options included the 375-horse 440, 390-horse 440 Six Pack, and 425-horse 426 Hemi. Dodge’s 275-horse 340-cid small-block V8 was optional for non-R/T Challengers. A 290-horsepower 340 fitted with three two-barrel carburetors was the exclusive engine for the limited-edition Challenger T/A, built for 1970 only.The V8-powered Challenger Rallye hardtop was the hottest model available from 1972 to ’74, and the 340 small-block remained the strongest engine during those years after the Hemi and 440 big-block were dropped after 1971. By far the most coveted Challenger was 1970’s Hemi R/T convertible—only nine were built.
