Ford may have temporarily stolen the muscle car crown with the all-new Shelby Super Snake, an 830 horsepower bullet. Still, the muscly model on the lips of most petrolheads these days remains the latest generation Dodge Charger.
You haven't forgotten why, right? Well, it is the world's first and only electric muscle car, and just in case you're not ready to take this big step yet, the Stellantis-owned auto brand is also offering it with gasoline power. The V8 is not on deck anymore, and besides the coupe, the lineup also comprises a four-door sedan.

Nevertheless, some muscle car enthusiasts still don't care about the modern-day establishment and believe the older ones, preferably from the 'golden age' of motoring, remain the best choice. You may have a soft spot for the third-generation Dodge Charger. After all, we did mention a 1974 model in the title, which is looking for a new home.

Made between the 1971 and 1974 model years, the third-gen Charger was put together in Detroit, Hamtramck, Los Angeles, and St. Louis. The coupe shared many components with the Coronet and the era's Plymouth Road Runner, GTX, and Satellite. Transmission options included manual and automatic units, and most of the engine family comprised V8 lumps, save for a straight-six.

You know we wouldn't have bothered you with this story if the muscle car in question featured a six-cylinder engine under that long hood, right? According to the vendor, the V8 powering is a 383 ci. The 6.3-liter unit is said to offer the "perfect combination of power and fuel efficiency," which makes it an ideal "choice for those who want to experience the thrill of driving a classic car."

Its future owner won't have to worry about changing gears by hand if they're not into it, as this 1974 Dodge Charger SE features an automatic transmission. It has almost 35,000 miles (~56,300 km) on the odometer, a blue paint finish, chrome appointments, a black vinyl top, American Racing wheels, and a black interior that is reminiscent of that era.

This ride is dressed to impress and should find a new home in no time. If you plan to become its next owner, you will have to click this link, which will redirect you to the ad on Garage Kept Motors. The vendor did not say much else about it, but the listing does include a generous image gallery that shows this old-timer from multiple angles.

As for the asking price, it was $27,900 at the time of writing. Sure, it's not the most affordable third-gen Charger out there, but it's not the priciest one either, and for that money, you can't even get an EcoBoost-powered '24 Mustang, which starts at $30,920.
