BLACK/BLACK/BLACK CHALLENGER, BUILT 340, AUTO, GA CAR, LOTS OF DOCS, WON'T LAST!
E-bodies don't get much cooler than this black on black 1974 Dodge Challenger. If you're into driving and enjoying your Mopar muscle than debating the finer points of matching-numbers, this nicely optioned and very well documented 340-powered Challenger is for you.
Finished in its original black color combination, this Challenger doesn't break any major rules, but it's so cool you simply won't care. The Challenger's shape is one of the most popular muscle car profiles in history (it's no secret why the Hemis cost what they do), and by building on a later model, you can create something truly special with the same fantastic look. This was obviously a very straight car to begin with, and the guys who built it went the extra mile to ensure that the sheetmetal was straight, the gaps were tight, and the look was just right. Then the deep black paint went on, and if you're a Mopar fan, you already know that a Challenger in black is one of the best-looking cars to roll out of the Chrysler design studios. Set off by a matching black vinyl top, this muscular Challenger is pulling no punches, offering a clean look that lets the sheetmetal speak for itself; no wing, no graphics, just straight, clean E-body magic. Of course, you do get shiny chrome bumpers that look great against the black paint, plus hood pins to remind everyone that this is, indeed, a performance car.
How else to finish a nasty black Challenger than with a matching black interior? With high-back buckets wearing their original seat covers, it's stylish and so nicely preserved that you'll probably feel like wearing a clean suit every time you climb behind the wheel. Black carpets with a matching dash were installed recently while re-dyed white door panels look simply awesome and give it a very finished look. The instrument panel features the usual four round binnacles for the gauges, all of which are fully functional and feature brightly rendered faces and clear lenses, and they're joined by a set of auxiliary dials under the dash. The original radio is gone, replaced by a powerful AM/FM/CD and with this car, you also get fully functional A/C. A slap-stick shifter manages the TorqueFlite underneath, while the trunk offers a full-sized spare and a correct mat for a polished look.
By 1973, the big blocks were dead, but that doesn't mean performance was gone. A built 340, complete with a steel crank, Keith Black pistons, an upgraded camshaft, and a big Holley carburetor, was nestled between the fenders of this Challenger, and it delivers all the thrills you'd expect for a fraction of the price of a big block. Beautifully finished to factory standards, it wears corporate turquoise paint, Mopar Performance finned valve covers and air cleaner, and just about everything else was properly restored. Power steering is nice with all this engine up front, and it exhales through a fresh dual exhaust system with Doug's headers and Dynomax mufflers. Everything else underneath was suitably upgraded for use with the strong-running small block, including the TCI-built TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic and 8.75-inch rear end, which has 3.23 gears inside. . A slick finishing touch is the chrome Cragar wheels wearing oversized 235/60/15 front and 245/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.
