This 1974 Dodge Charger SE may not be from the most classic of years, as ’74 onwards muscle cars really started to literally go downhill. This one has a good deal of options, is all original, in a reasonable state both inside and out and the seller says they are getting rid simply because they don’t have the financial means to complete a thorough restoration.

The car has been sat in an indoor storage unit since 1992, having recently been brought out to be resurrected. It’s already had some work done on it as below, but it’s really at the start of its journey to get back to a regular driving condition –

1.) Complete new fuel system including gas tank, sending unit, filler neck, Carter fuel pump, Wix fuel filter, all supply and return lines.
2.) Complete new brake system including master cylinder, drums, shoes, Powerstop cross drilled rotors, calipers, wheel bearings, Raybestos pads, and all hydraulic brake line
3.) New water pump, belts, hoses, clamps, flush fill
4.) New transmission filter, pan gasket, shifter seal, fluid
5.) Tune-up including distributor cap, rotor, Iridium plugs, coil, ignition wires, air filter
6.) New KYB shocks front and rear
7.) New battery, tray, and hold down
8.) New valve cover gaskets, only Fel-Pro gaskets used where replaced

The interior looks in very good shape, alot better than you would expect, rust is at a minimum (rust holes in the front panels may mean a replacement is needed), the paint is oxidised but still looks reasonable, but you will probably need a full respray if you want to bring the car back to its former glory. The 318ci. engine isn’t going to break any land speed records, but as its all original it maybe a hard decision to move up to something like a 440, unless you fancied the full restomod route. However, the 1974 318ci. V8 was weak as a kitten so an engine upgrade would be on the cards if you wanted to do anything but like cruising.

The Charger has been put out there with a starting bid of $12k. It’s clearly got alot of potential, but would need a first-hand inspection before diving into this one.
