The Basics,
I have owned this car for 5 years. This 1973 Dodge Challenger has been restored from top to bottom, I have a big
stack of all of the receipts from the build. It has 178 miles on it. I baby this car. It is always garaged. I
donít drive it in the rain and perform routine maintenance. This Challenger originally came with a 340 and 727
transmission. It was built in Hamtramck MI. There was only 2 other owners before I purchased it and the car has
never had a vinyl top. It has 450 to 500 ft lbs. of torque and 450 to 500 hp. The interior is in great shape no
rips or tears. Rallye hood, bucket seats, console, automatic, power steering, The dash has been refinished with a
genuine leather hand stitched dash. The original dash on this had a dash cover with liquid nails under it. I took
that off sanded it and filled in any cracks sealed it and covered it with genuine leather and hand stitched it. I
removed the torsion bars and replaced the suspension with a Magnum Force Racing suspension and forward strut kit.
It drives nice, is reliable, and has plenty of power and handles great. Iím selling this because of personal
reasons and I have to get something with 4 wheel drive.

Custom 2014 Dodge Durango R/T proves SEMA can be subtle

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 14:21:00 EST

The annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas can often be a sensory overload of overwrought madness, with cars that don't even look drivable anymore. But every once in a while, a modestly modified show car graces our presence, like the customized Dodge Durango you see here, which, in addition to giving us our first glimpse at the aftermarket possibilities for the refreshed-for-2014 model, proves that a car doesn't have to be slammed, scooped, donked and Lambo-doored to have presence.
Sure, this Durango has custom hood inserts, dark 22-inch wheels and custom fender flares, but as far as external modifications go, that's it. Inside, Dodge has fitted new door sill guards, an ambient lighting kit, bright pedals, premium floor mats and - of course - Katzkin leather. The automaker has even added wireless internet connectivity as part of the excellent Uconnect infotainment system.
Performance upgrades are minimal on this Durango R/T, which comes packed with Chrysler's 5.7-liter Hemi V8. Larger brakes have been fitted, as have lowering springs (though it certainly doesn't look that much lower) and a custom exhaust.

Indications of 825 hp and emissions issues for Hellcat called 'speculation' by Chrysler

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 11:00:00 EST

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is probably one of the hottest cars of the moment mostly because of its insane, 707-horsepower supercharged V8. However, there are conflicting reports coming out that the powerplant might be having problems with its emissions compliance and may be capable of even more power.
Jalopnik says that an unnamed source within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles told it that the Hellcat was having problems meeting emissions standards at its 707-horsepower tune. The person claimed that the automaker has been testing the V8 with different types of sensors, possibly to make it a bit cleaner in the future. Autoblog spoke to SRT spokesperson Dan Reid, and he said about the claimed poor emissions, "It's totally speculation."
The source also claimed that the Hellcat had been dynoed at a monumental 825 horsepower, internally. Based on the other rumor, though, it's hard to imagine the engine being emissions compliant like that. Autoblog also asked Reid about this speculation about more power and was told, "They are totally speculating about that."
