Meh.  :-\. A lot of money involved for sure. But the front grille looks like a ford Torino, the rear tail lights were a downgrade, and that Chevy hood!  :banghead:  The drivetrain is trick, but there's not enough traction to matter, so what's the point?  To me it's just another show car.

Wow, glad I'm not the only one with those thoughts...

I'm a newbie to the forum, my brother and I just bought a 73 Challenger 440 RT clone.
This is the car I built, 1968 Dodge Charger with 2001 Viper V10 / 6 speed tremec with 525 usable HP.

I've actually got my eye on a 71 Challenger now. Considering the same build to the 71 as I did to the Charger, Complete restomod, Reilly suspension, Viper motor, tremec tranny, custom interior. But I would sell it when I was finished, same quality as the Charger.

We are keeping the 73 as is, my brother wants to keep it as stock as possible, if you can call a 73 RT 440 clone stock.

Just curious, what does a complete , fully dressed viper motor weigh?

Hey Brads70, I can't remember the exact number, I have it in my records somewhere because I did weigh the one in my Charger, but as an all aluminum motor and tranny, i remember it was lighter then a 440 or 426. The motor in my Charger came out of a 2001 ACR car.

Did U have to move the firewall to make it fit?  All the e-body builds I've seen with the viper drivetrain have required moving the firewall back about 5 inches, obviously the charger has a much longer nose, but I'm just curious.  Thanks!  Nice car!

I went with 4 inches on the firewall, 5-6 would have been better because I am currently using a pusher fan, with 5-6 I could have used a puller. I would have also had to mod the Reilly suspension if I had gone back 5-6.
