1973 numbers matching Challenger project
« on: August 19, 2017 - 07:03:44 pm »
For sale: 1973 numbers matching Challenger.

Hello up for sale is my '73 Challenger. Car is currently apart but does roll and all parts are there as I just rescued it from body shop purgatory. It is a numbers matching 318 auto with both fender tag and build sheet.

Interior is out and in process of being changed to black, dash switches have been restored.

Has new rear drivers frame rail installed. And floors are solid.

Included in sale in addition to all of the original driveline is a freshly rebuilt 340 with 73 date code that was going to be installed as well as HP manifolds.

New Parts included in Sale:
Rear Quarters
Single Piece Trunk Pan
Trunk Extensions
Outter Wheel Housings
New Rear Frame rail support
Rallye Hood
2.5 inch Magna-flow stainless exhaust
Exhaust tips
Front Valance
Rear Valance
Front and Rear seat Covers
Headliner
Package tray for rear speakers
T/A Spoiler from Dale's Cuda Shop
New Shocks
Front T/A Spoilers
Side Rallye Fender Scoops

I'm sure I'm forgetting some things.
Currently still owe a little over 10k on car through Lightstream which can be verified.
The whole experience hasn't been pleasant and has soured the hobby for me.

Asking $16,000 OBO for everything.

Pictures of everything upon request.

$16K for a 73 in pieces that needs about everything might be difficult to realize. This is the deal with the car hobby in general, it is very expensive to build a car the right way and they seldom are worth what is in them unless they have provenance and/or are rare.

That's why I said OBO... You're also not mentioning a freshly rebuilt 340 which people tend to want to pay for and the correct hp manifolds that for some one bring in stupid money for what they are. Unless you're thinking of offering I would thank you to keep your opinions to yourself or to private messages.  :drunk: :horse:

Unlike some on here who might come back with something far more incendiary, I will only say this; this is a forum for people who are interested in and generally enjoy Ebody Mopars and Mopars in general. Therefore I (and any member) is free to express whatever opinion we choose. The fact that you didn't like my comment is unfortunate but meant to provide some honesty to the market you are playing in. That said, I wish all the luck in the world and perhaps someone out there will give you what you are asking or  close.  :popcorn:  :screwy:

I would agree with 70chall440, on the the forum and the price, this is friendly forum where everyone shares their thoughts, and I would expect a disassembled 73 Chally is worth more like 8-10k, I sold mine for 12k and it was in driving condition with a 340 also.  But Sharing pics could help your case, he's of luck with your sale

Sorry to hear about your bad experience. Having read 70chall440's comment a couple of times and as the owner of a 74 Challenger which I resurrected from the dead, I don't think he was trying to rain on your parade, but rather was just making a comment based on his- and our- own hard experiences. A 73 or 74 for that matter, in great nick is buyable in the high 20's to mid 30's and to figure that you'll install all that sheet metal, interior, rebuilt engine and do the body and paint for somewhere in the range of 10-15k may be a stretch- that's all. It sounds like a good project and you've got some nice parts to go with it and I wish you good luck with the sale.  :cheers:
