Hopefully you are a fan of the color green as this Dodge Challenger R/T has plenty of it. It also has some great features such as a pistol grip 4 speed and a 383 Magnum V8. In original and solid condition, this awesome muscle package is offered for $26,500. Check it out here on ebay out of New River, Arizona.
Under the hood of this mean green muscle car lies a 335 horsepower 383 Magnum V8 that is a runner, but is not the factory numbers matching engine. Despite this fact, the seller claims that many of the engines components are numbers matching to the vehicle. It appears the previous owner swapped the engine into the car, and got it running, but that there may still be a few loose ends that need to be tied up before hitting the roads. The engine is quite clean and appears to have been painted before installation. There is various surface rust throughout the engine bay, and there appears to be some bubbling on the firewall. This Dodge is equipped with some great goodies such as the pistol grip 4 speed transmission, sure grip differential, power steering and power brakes.
Like a pea in a pod, you would certainly get a thrill from driving this Challenger. No surprise, but the interior is green, and thankfully is limited to a few colors. Sadly the front buckets are ripped, but the seller has factory green plaid material to restore this interior. Beyond the ripped seats and the tired carpeting the interior is quite nice. For an Arizona car I would have expected more sun fade and dry rot from this interior. Instead the interior, the dash and console look lovely as do the door panels. It almost appears as if you could do the seats and the carpet, and have a lower grade show quality interior. Even the steering wheel and shift lever are in nice condition with no signs of damage.
Somewhat like a Dr. Suess book this Challenger is a green on green car, with green stripes and a green vinyl top. Hopefully you do not dislike green, as this Challenger is a real beauty. Thankfully the vinyl top has been long removed and hasn’t held moisture against the sheet metal roof in some time. There is some light surface rust on the roof, but thankfully that is the only concern. The body itself still wears most of its original paint, although some green spray paint has been used to likely cover surface rust of failing paint. Rot seems to be a minimal issue for this Dodge, but the driver side rear quarter has a hole and will need some sheet metal work. Also the trunk appears solid but is completely covered in orange surface rust. Beyond these areas of concern, there is little else to report. The body panel gaps appear equal and evenly spaced, and the exterior overall is solid. With great features, looks, and power, this American muscle is waiting to be revived. Are you a fan of this mean green muscle machine?
