Freshly restored and powered by a reliable Summit Racing V8, this 1972 Dodge Charger is guaranteed to provide you with a level of visceral excitement and adrenaline fueled satisfaction that a pampered and paraded trailer queen simply can't match.

The high quality frame up restoration began with a super clean original body that was stripped, sanded and massaged to better than showroom condition. Once the straight panels lined up correctly and this Chargers intimidating slab-sided ambiance was fully reconstructed, a retina searing coat of bright red paint was expertly applied under a slick black 'Ramcharger' hood stripe. When the red and black paint fully cured, correct black door depression decals were added as a cool finishing touch, and every inch of the clearcoat was buffed to the incredible shine you see here. The net result is a spectacular looking pavement pounder which elicits comments and stares every time it hits the road.


Lift the long, freshly finished hood and you'll find a fully detailed Summit Racing 408 that wears a new coat of Hemi orange paint. At the top of that engine, a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner feeds an aluminum Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake through a dipped Edelbrock four barrel carburetor. Behind that air cleaner, a Summit electronic ignition system sends fire from an MSD Blaster 2 coil to a billet distributor and Accel Ferro-Spiral race wires. At the sides of the intake, handsome Mopar Performance aluminum valve covers hold new chrome caps above ceramic coated TTI long tube headers. In front of the motor, fresh V-belts spin a new chrome alternator and a full assortment of billet pulleys while a Champion Cooling aluminum radiator sends fluid through fresh hoses and a sweet looking machined thermostat housing. Turn the ignition switch and the great sounding motor springs to life with a little help from an Optima gel cell battery and settles into a rumbling high-performance idle, hot or cold. Yes, this is one slick small block! All the plated parts are nicely done, and an assortment of stainless lines, braided hoses, billet accessories and fresh finishes give the engine compartment a highly-detailed appearance which perfectly matches its great sounding roar.


Behind this Charger's killer small block is a refurbished Summit Racing A727 street fighter TorqueFlite automatic transmission that shifts smoothly and powers down the road with ease. As with the body of the car, 'clean' is the name of the game down below; original undercoating still protects the solid floors and frame from Mother Nature's worst while a new fuel tank and fuel lines ensure safety and reliability. Up front, a good looking factory suspension has been upgraded with new polyurethane bushings and a Firm Feel steering box, and out back, a familiar 8.75 Sure Grip rear end utilizes steep 3.55 gears to throw the power to the pavement with authority. At the center of the car, a fresh mandrel bent aluminized exhaust system sends spent gases past a Mancinni Racing custom third member, and at the corners of the car, power front discs and power rear drum brakes provide quick and reliable stops. All this Mopar goodness rolls on a traditional set of great looking 15 inch Cragar S/S wheels with 255/60 front and 275/60 rear BFGoodrich Radial T/A white letter tires.


Sit down inside this great looking Charger and you'll find a nicely restored black vinyl interior that is accented with tasteful wood and stainless trim. The Legendary seat covers, fresh carpets and tight headliner all present as new, while the door panels and full length console are probably well-preserved originals. That new carpet is protected by "Charger" branded floor mats, and that original console houses a correct 'slap stick' shifter for the cars A727 transmission. In front of the driver, the cars original dash has been recovered and holds original gauges above a disabled factory heater, (With that hot 408, who needs performance robbing heat anyway?) a modern Sony CD player and an aluminum three spoke steering wheel.


This '72 Charger combines a slew of trophy winning ingredients with a price that is substantially lower than most freshly completed muscle cars and enough fire power to humble even modern performance cars. Call, click or visit RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome car!
