Nice 1973 Dodge Charger.  Original "Mopar Yellow Twist" or "Top Banana" color last year.  New rocker panels and metal throughout.  Interior is not too bad for original.  The dash is cracked, the headliner is ripped.  All doors, windows, trunk, work fine.

Rebuilt 318 bored .030" over with new pistons and rings and 360 heads.  New mild cam.  Edelbrock intake and 650 CFM  mechanical four barrel.  Dual exhaust with glass packs.  OEM manifolds.  It has a righteous sound.  It idles great, and really opens up at 3,000 RPM.  Clean title, 115,500 miles.  Gauges, speedometer work.  Taillights work.  New break lines throughout.  It can bark the tires of course.

This is the car to have, it is a runner or driver.  It really turns heads.  You could commute to work in it.  You can take it to church in the morning, to the track and race it, then take the wife/girlfriend to a fancy restaurant or a drive in at night.  You could do a frame off resto on it as well.  In frame off, these are about $25,000.  The motor is done, just dress it up with valve covers etc.  

The Dodge Charger held on to the muscle car era, and was the first to come back to life.  These original are getting rare.  In this price range extremely rare.  The value will only go up.  This has the extremely rare bubble hood.  

This is American knowledge and power at its height.  No metric on this, no computer, just power and style.  It has the coke bottle body style, Mopar "B".  No AC, no power steering, brakes or windows.  AM radio.

Dodge Viper recall requires small-handed mechanics

Fri, 25 Apr 2014 13:31:00 EST

It has been over a year since Chrysler first announced its recall of 3,660 2003-2004 Dodge Vipers because the airbag could suddenly deploy. The repairs are finally beginning, and it appears to be a nightmare for mechanics.
According to the automaker's filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the airbag control module can fail, which causes the bag or the seatbelt pre-tensioner to deploy without warning. It took over a year to design the new parts, according to The New York Times. However, Chrysler finally has a new "jumper harness with an in-line diode filter circuit" ready to fix the problem.
The dilemma now moves to the mechanics who have to actually install the part. A 47-step guide from Chrysler explains that the procedure should take about two hours. It's not an easy job, though. Most of the dashboard has to be taken apart, and the instructions include this helpful bit of advice: "Installing the jumper harness and filter box into position is not an easy task. Patience, perseverance, and small hands are required." We wish the best of luck to them. The fix comes just in time for the Vipers to enjoy the summer sun.

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."

Dodge and Jeep recalling 895k SUVs for possibility of headliner fires

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 10:10:00 EST

Dodge and Jeep are announcing recalls of a total of 895,000 Durango and Grand Cherokee models worldwide from the 2011 through 2014 model years. There's a possibility that the wiring in the sun visor can short circuit and cause a fire. It specifically affects vehicles built between January 5, 2010, and December 11, 2013, and there are approximately 651,000 of them in the US, 45,700 in Canada, 23,000 in Mexico and 175,000 outside of North America.
Screws that fasten the sunvisor to the headliner may pierce wires in the visor, if the part has been removed or serviced, potentially causing a fire risk. If the wires short circuit, they could overheat and potentially combust. The automakers report three injuries caused by this defect, and according to the investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "there may be a total of 52 unique fire incidents."
To fix the problem, Dodge and Jeep will inspect the vehicles for suspect wiring, and all of the models, whether damaged or not, will get a new sun visor spacer with a wire guide to stop the possibility of short circuits. According to the automakers' announcement, "this condition is not present in vehicles which have not had the headliner or vanity mirror serviced." They will notify affected owners, and repairs will begin in August.
