Probable Barn Find: 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

barn-finds-1970-dodge-challenger-rt

The seller of this 1970 Dodge Charger R/T doesn’t offer much information in their Hemmings listing, but hopefully they claim it is “barn find” because it’s original and not just dirty. They do claim the paint and interior are original, but we have our doubts. It does have the 440 V8 and it appears to be the 375 horsepower Magnum… Read more »

Poly Head: 1956 Dodge Coronet Lancer

1956-dodge-coronet-lancer

In the 1950’s Dodge was busy experimenting with engine and head designs. They produced a number of interesting new designs, but few went on to be used and even fewer lasted the test of time. One of the better designs they came out with was the Poly head V8, but it didn’t go on to see the success that the Hemi did. This 1956 Dodge Coronet Lancer is powered by one of these Poly V8s and is a solid driver. Take a look at it here on eBay, were bidding is still low. Read more »

Mad Max Mopar: 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T

survivor-mopar-1968-dodge-coronet-rt

When we see Dodge’s Road and Track, or R/T, designation on a Mopar, the first thing we tend to think of is big block V8s and tons of torque. This 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T offers both those things and with bidding under $2k and the reserve already met, could be had on a tight budget. The seller has owned it since discovering it in a barn about 5 years ago and has now listed it here on eBay. Read more »

Mopar Mausoleum

1974-Graveyard-Challenger

We have featured large stashes of Mustangs, Studebakers, and even Corvairs, but this is our first Mopar graveyard. There are multiple cars parked behind this building in Hershey, Pennsylvania and the owner would like to get rid of them all. Even though they are not good for anything more than parts, the photos are intriguing, in a morbid way. Here are the eBay listings for this 1974 Dodge Challenger 318 Rallye and the rest of the cars. Thanks goes to Jim S. for the submission. Read more »

Barn Yard 1973 Dodge Challenger

barn-yard-1973-challenger

This Challenger project gets an honorable mention, not because it’s a bargain, but because of what is in the photo. Many people try to stage their cars as “barn finds”, but this guy didn’t even have to try. The goats wandering around the Dodge clearly qualify this one as a barn yard find. Thanks goes to reader Mark H. who found the car on Spokane’s craigslist and pointed out the little tin nibblers. The $5,500 asking price might be a little steep, but that does include a 440. Too bad these only came with the 318 or 340 in ’73, but still…

Sublime Survivor: 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T

surivor-1970-dodge-challenger-383

After Ford introduced the Mustang in 1964, the other American manufactures scrambled to respond with their own versions of the Pony car. For Chevrolet, it came as the Camaro. For the Chrysler Group, their response came much later with the introduction of Challenger in 1970. The Challenger was really a different kind of Animal, but it held its own against most Pony cars. This 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T is a survivor with its original 383 V8. It has been garaged, cared for, and documented its entire life and is ready to be driven and enjoyed. Find it here on eBay.

440 Four-Speed: 1969 Dodge Coronet R/T

1969-Coronet-RT-440-grill

Only serious Mopar fans need apply. This is a 1969 Dodge Coronet R/T and it’s going to need a complete restoration. We feel the end result will be well worth the effort though, as this car is equipped with a big 440 and a four-speed transmission. We are talking about some serious fun here. Unfortunately, the car resides in Florida so there is rust. Take a look at the eBay auction here where bidding is currently at $1,725. Read more »

Speedy Survivor: 1979 Dodge Li’l Red Express

1979-dodge-lil-red-express

Even with high fuel prices, trucks are still some of the best-selling vehicles here in the States. We love our trucks here in America and the only thing that makes a truck better is to make it more powerful, faster, and louder. High performance trucks have been around for a while. When Dodge introduced the Li’l Red Express in 1978, it was the fastest American production vehicle built that year. The seller of this 1979 Li’l Red Truck claims it’s a survivor. Check it out for yourself here on eBay, where it is being offered with a BIN of $15,000. Read more »
