The car is a 1973 Dodge Challenger. Originally a 340 4 barrel, it now sports a 340 6 pack and has a 4 speed with pistol grip.
We purchased the car in Sacramento California as it is seen today. We originally went to look at a 70 Dodge Dart swinger, but low and behold, this car was sitting in the garage. We drove it and that was the end! We had to have it after that.
