Original Green Paint: 1973 Dodge Challenger 340

To the casual observer, it could appear that Dodge entered the pony car wars almost a half a decade late with a big meaty E-body in 1970, but Dodge actually built a fastback pony car before the Mustang that was known as the Plymouth Barracuda.  However, we are here to talk about a car that shared the E-body with the third generation of Barracuda -- the Challenger. Find this 1973 Dodge Challenger 340 offered for $16,900 in Mobile, AL via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

For as long as I can remember, prices for the Dodge Challenger have been high...not Porsche 911 high...but they usually cost more than a similarly equipped Mustang Coupe or Camaro.   However, this 340 V8 equipped Challenger is offered with factory original paint in good shape at a price between a #3 "Good" and #4 "Fair" car according to Hagerty --and  I think that means this is a buy.

See a better deal on a dog...I mean Dodge?


  1. I like it but not one interior shot be nice to know the miles need the early 340/275hp to make it go fast....!
