1972 Dodge Challenger RT For Sale
Fort Worth, Texas
Sporting a nostalgia-evoking, smile-inducing appearance, this 1972 Dodge Challenger R/T Tribute just begs to be driven! It maintains the sharp good looks that provided the initial impact when it arrived to battle the Mustangs and Camaros of its era and it also comes with a thoughtful collection of add-ons to increase its functionality and uniqueness without in any way diminishing its authentic look.
The car just has a great look from all angles _ angular and athletic. With its factory-correct, bright glossy red exterior, punctuated by a wide black vinyl stripe down the center of its hood (which bears very effectively located 'R/T' lettering) and matching stripes across the tops of its doors, this Challenger is a great representative of its era. It's a great color scheme for this model and is accessorized effectively by the very clean chrome bumpers and headlight bezels. A set of chrome Cragar rims further enhances the overall look. We all know how the stance of a car contributes to overall presence and this one is great. Not too much rise and not too levelled out and conservative. Even its hood flare is nice and tasteful _ just prominent enough to show this ride is something special, while still smoothly flowing into the hood space that surrounds it. Take a look underneath and you'll see a nice, clean undercarriage as well.
That smile on your face is likely to remain as you open the door and look inside. Nice white upholstery greets you and it's factory-correct, as well. Right away, you're likely to notice that the bucket seats retain the contour they had when this car rolled off the line. Plush and comfortable. The whiteness of the upholstery contrasts nicely with the black color of the center console and carpeting. Gray door panels further accent the look of the interior. Everything looks as you'd want it to, only better. Even the owner's manual resides inside the glovebox. A Pioneer AM/FM CD system with IPOD and Bluetooth capabilities will give you virtually endless audio options and a smoothly installed under-dash A/C unit will keep the interior temperature under control as you enjoy the road. The Challenger's factory gauges are joined with high-end aftermarket additions to better monitor RPMs, temperature and oil pressure.
Underneath that contoured hood, a professionally built 340 V8 resides, ready for action. It's fed by a Holley 4 Barrel carb sitting on top of an Edelbrock intake manifold. This engine's got a great, throaty sound as it exhales into a set of ceramic-coated headers and a dual exhaust. The gas tank, sending unit and even the filler neck are all brand new, so only clean fuel will reach this V8 and you won't have any roadside surprises from overly optimistic gas gauge readings. An MSD ignition system and enhanced wiring provide the spark to light this candle and a well-proportioned aluminum radiator helps keep things suitably cool. All these components reside in a nicely sorted engine compartment _ not a hose or cable out of place. Front Power disc brakes supply the stopping power you'll want, and power steering keeps navigation both easy and fun.
This tastefully maintained Challenger has some serious magnetism to draw you in. It evokes great memories and simpler times and features glossy good looks, making it seem like it was transported into the present via time machine. Don't hesitate on this one!
