1973 Dodge Challenger Rallye Flexes a 340 4-Barrel, Hardly Driven Lately

The Rallye package gifted the 1973 Dodge Challenger with a series of visual upgrades, including a special grille, a new instrument cluster, and a sport hood. However, the engine lineup was pretty much the same as in 1972, in some cases even losing some power as the carmaker had to comply with the new emissions regulations.

The 1973 Challenger Rallye that we have here promises a feeling that’s as close as it gets to those times, with eBay seller bcantlerman5_6 claiming the vehicle is currently “really similar to how the car was new.

While this is a claim that a potential buyer has to confirm after a live inspection of the car, this Challenger Rallye does come with a series of goodies that instantly catch everybody’s attention.

The body and the paint seem to be in pretty good shape, though it’s very clear this isn’t a new car, and some small spots still need to be fixed. For example, there’s a small hole and a crack in the dash, as the seller themselves explained, and the Challenger requires additional fixes to handle correctly.

On the other hand, the interior is mostly original, including the carpet, and the car comes with the original purchase documents.

Hardly driven lately because the owner wanted to preserve the car as much as possible, the Challenger is offered with little information about the engine, though we’re told it “runs great.” Hiding under the hood is a 340 (5.6L) unit 4-barrel unit that develops 240 horsepower and is mated to an automatic transmission.

According to the VIN, the car was built at Dodge’s Main, Hamtramck plant. Unfortunately, there are no specifics on the mileage, as the value included in the ad (123,789 miles/199,219 kilometers) looks more like a placeholder. A photo of the dash indicates 23,919 miles (38,494 kilometers), but we don’t know if this is the original mileage or not.

The owner is confident they could get over $30,000 for this Challenger Rallye, but the Make Offer button has also been enabled should someone be interested in another deal.
