DIALED-IN '67 CHARGER, BEEFY 440 V8, TORQUEFLIGHT, HWY GEARS, READY TO RUMBLE!!
It's a shame that cars like this cool 1967 Dodge Charger live in the shadows of their second-generation siblings, because these sleek fastbacks have a lot to offer. In particular, this one carries a stout 440, offers a heavy-duty look that's hard to resist, and in a show field full of later Chargers, this one is going to stand out.
The bright red paint is about four years old and the sleek Charger wears it rather well. You can see this car's details echoed in its younger siblings, starting with the smooth front end and folding headlights, as well as the familiar Chrysler arrow-shaped detailing on the sides of the quarter panels, a shape that would also appear on the inner door panels of the second-generation cars. It's purely a driver, not a show car, but it looks great even up close, with decent gaps, a good shine, and only modest signs of age and use. Make no mistake, this is a big car, and the dramatic fastback profile only makes it look longer, giving it a lot of presence on the streets and accentuating the look of performance. You also get more chrome on this one than the later cars, including the wonderful trim that runs along the tops of the fenders and back to a set of mini fins flanking the fastback deck. The chrome bumpers are probably original, while irreplaceable pieces like the single taillight in back remain in excellent shape.
The interior is still one of the coolest to ever grace a car coming out of a Chrysler factory, starting with two sets of bucket seats and two center consoles. The gauges are too cool to be believed, with numbers wrapping around the silver bezels and tracked by orange needles in the center, and they are joined by a small white-faced temperature gauge under the dash. The seat covers and carpets are probably new, while the rest seems to be nice original stuff that's been well-maintained over the years, with only the metal surfaces starting to show their age. The original AM radio is still in the dash, although it's not working, so it's ripe for an upgrade. There's also a leather wrap on the steering wheel that makes it a lot easier to grab than the skinny plastic original. The back seat is surprisingly spacious under that sloping rear window and yes, the trunk is positively massive.
This Charger is a serious performer as well, thanks to a built 440 cubic inch V8 living under the hood. Wearing a coat of Hemi Orange engine enamel, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, and long-tube headers, it's a torque factory that looks great in the cavernous engine bay. It starts easily and idles with a healthy rumble from the twin Magnaflow mufflers and all that power gives this big Charger the moves of a much smaller car. Backed by a 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission and tall 2.94 gears, it's an easy car to maneuver around town and a superb highway cruiser. The undercarriage is in good order, looking mostly original but hailing from someplace warm so that's not really a demerit. And you can't argue that those black wheels with dog dish hubcaps and 225/70/15 blackwall tires doesn't give this car a very butch look.
Available for a fraction of the price of its younger brothers, this Charger has just as much to offer, including an awesome look that you won't see everywhere you go. Call today!
