1974 Dodge Challenger
SOLD

 

This car has undergone a complete restoration using some of the best parts available. While keeping the exterior and interior relatively stock, the drivetrain has been completely reworked. Under the AAR reproduction fiberglass R/T hood, a Blueprint Engines 408 Stroker motor making 440 HP and 505 ft lbs of torque has been installed and driven under 1000 miles. Motor sits on Schumacher polyurethane engine mounts and is cooled by a custom Muscle Car aluminum radiator and shroud from Mancini Racing. The motor is backed by a Tremec/Keisler Classic Fit custom built TKO-600 5 Speed Overdrive Transmission. The gear ratios in the transmission are 2.87, 1.89, 1.28, 1.0, and .82. The transmission was installed with a Full E-body installation kit with a Lakewood Bellhousing, Centerforce Clutch.( an ease to operate)Also installed was a new clutch Z bar and Gunslinger Pistol Grip Hurst Shifter . The 8 3/4" rear end houses a new Auburn Gear 3.91 Sure-Grip center section and new Moser Pro Street axles. 4 wheel power disc brakes from SSBC make this car stop on a dime. . All shocks are Edelbrock IAS Classic Performer shocks. Front end has been rebuilt using Performance Suspension Technology Poly Graphite bushings. Car has new HD torsion bars, HD rear leaf springs, and HD front and rear sway bars from Just Suspension. Interior has been completely redone with new EVERYTHING. Seats, carpet, headliner, dash pad, das bezels, door panels, etc. . Dash features Auto Meter Pro Comp gauges and a JVC CD player. Rear package shelf houses JL speakers. Interior keeps cool through a Classic Auto Air Heat/AC /Defrost sytem.New front and rear glass has been installed. Side glass is overall in good shape, one notable scrape on the D/S door glass is shown in the pics below. (2x3in scratched area) This was a 98% rust free car before its restoration. The only sheetmetal replaced was the trunk floor extensions and the driver side floor pan. Both were expertly repaired and spot welded in as original. The body and paintwork on this car was also professionally done. Overall a very straight car with very nice door and trunk fitment. Attention to detail under the hood, door jambs, and trunk are excellent. Most cars you see lack in these areas. There is one spot about 1-1/2 in in size on the firewall where the paint has lifted. (pic below) The PPG paint on this car has been fully sanded and buffed for that mirror finish. Paint/ body quality is better than 90% of the cars you will see at any given car show. Undercarriage of car has been undercoated with Por-15 and is clean. The owner of this car is a detail freak (in a good way) This car is as clean as they come, every little part has been polished or painted to perfection. This is an excellent driving car and has TONS of power. It has never been to the track but will run an estimated high 11 sec quarter mile. Throttle response and reliability make this car a blast to drive around town, 5th gear makes highway trips a blast. You will not find a better car for the money.
