The third generation Dodge Chargers seem to not be as well appreciated as the second generation cars, but the 1971-1974 cars still have great looks and power. This 1971 model has a factory equipped 440 big block, and is in original condition minus a recent repaint. Very well taken care of and ready to light the tires, this Charger is currently bid up to $15,855 with the reserve not met. Find it here on ebay out of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The massive heart of this beast is a 440 cubic inch V8 that produces 370 horsepower and 480 foot pounds of torque. That massive power is transmitted through a 727 Torqueflite automatic transmission. Described as original, the engine and bay are very tidy, with no obvious signs of surface rust or even dirt. The mileage is listed as being 112,000 miles which isn’t too high for a car of this vintage. With this big power comes big comfort as this Charger is equipped with air conditioning. As of recently the car also received a great deal of maintenance including brakes, suspension, exhaust, and more. This big block beauty likely drives like new.
Looking inside of this bright orange machine shows a museum worthy interior that is factory original to this car. Virtually spotless and flaw free, this interior has aged very gracefully. Although the seller mentions it hardly shows signs of wear, indicating that there may be some very minor wear present that is not visible from the images. Before being repainted this Charger was carefully taken care of in a private car collection and it certainly shows.
At a glance you would think this Charger was an extremely low mileage survivor, or that it was completely restored. Instead this car has been repainted and it has really made this car phenomenal. Sprayed in its original color, the stripes were also replaced making the car authentic and correct. Although appearing perfect the seller says the paint is “near perfect, and well done” but from looking at the photos it appears perfect. In beautiful condition this may easily be one of the nicest big block 3rd generation Chargers out there. With a big heart and an excellent condition interior and exterior, what do you predict this Dodge will sell for?
