1973 Dodge Charger
« on: February 12, 2010 - 09:39:39 AM »
Sorry no pics (yet) for this...I've been contacted about this car but haven't been able to do more than just drive by.

1973 Dodge Charger, 400 (not sure if it's 2 or 4 bbl), cream color with landau style top.  Pretty sure the car will need floors, quarters, etc, etc etc.  What are the watchouts for these cars?  The grille and tails look to be intact.

The owner is asking $1500...

This has to be the first thread on this forum where not a single opinion has been posted.

You certainly can't argue with the price. Do you know if the engine runs? I would assume they are like E-Bodies in that the rear quarters rot away, and the rear windows leak into the trunk rotting that away. As always, those frame rails would need checking out. You might want to see if the cowl/firewall area looks like Swiss cheese too.

The price sounds pretty reasonable to me. I can't see how you could go wrong.
If you get it, I know someone who has some NOS sheet metal.  :bigsmile:

Do you have any pictures? If it was me it  would really depend on the title situation and how it is mechanically, how much work it will take to get it on the road. It sounds like a good price though for a BB car. You should run the vin and see if it was originally a BB car

Also if you get it and need some parts I'll let mine go cheap, I have a 73 that I was going to work on but I cant get a title for it so Im parting it out probably.

I have a non-car friend who's mediating this thing...everyone knows him, everyone's friend, etc.

I think he and I are gonna take a "casual" look at it this weekend.  I'll try to get pics, VIN and fender tag info.

Still not sure where I'd put it for the moment.  I really hate storage units.

Anymore, any old mopar under $3000 is a decent deal. The fact that it is a Charger is a bonus. In general, the third gen Chargers tend to be less expensive and it is not uncommon to see project level cars for $1500-3000, so this is at the bottom end of the range price wise.

If I was closer, and didn't have the 3 projects I currently have, I'd be willing to pay between $1,000 to $1,500 for it.
