HIGHLIGHTS: Clean, affordable V8 Mopar! 318ci with 904 automatic transmission! Magnum 500 wheels! Cool cruiser!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 1973 Dodge Charger is in surprisingly good condition for a Mopar product of this vintage that doesn't seem to have seen a restoration. There have been some patches performed in some of the “usual” locations, but the body appears to be straight and would be very receptive to further work should the next owner choose.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: According to the fender tag, this car was originally painted JY9 Dark Gold Metallic with a black vinyl top. At some point in the past, the car was repainted to the current yellow color though the vinyl top appears to be original. The paint is in good overall condition, but is showing some normal signs of age and use. There are some bubbles showing at the bottom of the doors. The vinyl top is in okay condition, but does have some aging such as wrinkles as can be seen in the photos.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The fender tag notes that this car was originally a gold and black interior. Likely at the same time as the exterior repaint, the interior was changed to black and yellow to match. Also like the exterior, the interior is in good overall condition but is showing normal wear and tear in addition to aging on some components.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The 318 is one of the most reliable and affordable engines that ever came out of Chrysler. While it's no power monster, a 318 is a solid unit and this one is no exception and provides more than adequate power to comfortably cruise this Charger, even as large as it is! While the car runs and drives as one would expect a car of this vintage to, it may be worthwhile to do a basic tune up.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The affordable price and the unique look!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: This car is a nice little driver that is sure to turn heads anywhere you park it. However, it is not a fully restored car and does have some of the quirks and features that come with age.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Non-functional items include the heat, air conditioning, wipers, horn, radio, and emergency brake.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for an affordable price on a funky driver-quality Mopar!

Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry. We perform an extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent, but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent.

Dealership and its affiliates shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects associated with a vehicle prior to the close of sale. Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

Because we advertise each vehicle with so many third-party affiliates, it is the customer's sole responsibility to verify the accuracy of the price with the dealer. All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Vehicle availability is not guaranteed and subject to prior sale. Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle. Contact the dealership about pricing to place a deposit on a vehicle.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300. We can not accept any credit card as payment or partial payment for a vehicle under any circumstance.
