One-Owner 1973 Dodge Charger Always Parked in a Garage Flexes Original Goodies

Back in 1973, Dodge introduced a series of refinements on the Charger lineup, including new grilles and vertical taillights, giving up on the hidden headlights that lots of people still loved.

The standard engine was the 318 (5.2-liter) V8, with several more powerful options available across the lineup, including a 440 (7.2-liter) V8 offered as the top-of-the-range configuration.

The Charger SE you’re looking at here, however, comes with the standard 318, but the good news is it runs and drives like new. eBay user tommyfrom1968, who listed the car for auction online, claims the engine is mated to an automatic transmission, though we’re not told if this is the original powertrain or not.

On the other hand, what we do know is the Charger has been stored in a garage since day one, and you can easily tell this by simply checking out the photos in the gallery. That said, it's worth emphasizing that the car has already received one repaint at some point during its life, according to the listing.
 
There’s no sign of rust on this Charger, so in theory, it’s ready to become a daily driver for the right price. And speaking of the right price, the owner says that whoever pays $23,000 can take the car home, though an eBay auction is also underway, with the top bid currently at $9,500.

The good news is the car comes with several original goodies, including the window sticker and the purchase order, and you can also check them out in the gallery below.

Given it’s an SE, it’s equipped with plenty of extra parts, including the signature triple-quarter window that debuted in 1973, but also front disk brakes, deluxe wheel covers, electronic ignition system, a cigar lighter, and a Rallye type instrument panel.

The odometer indicates 63,210 miles (101,726 kilometers), with the Charger currently parked in Tacoma, Washington, for whoever wants to inspect it in person.
