Here’s an opportunity to pick up a genuine classic for a not-unreasonable price: A 1975 Dodge Charger Special Edition is listed for sale on Hemmings out of Lancaster, California for $7,300 (price negotiable). This example is shod in Starlight Blue Mica with a blue interior, and packs a 360-cubic-inch High Output V8 with heavy-duty rods and a four-barrel Holley carb.
“Nearly every component on this car has been replaced or rebuilt,” the seller claims. That includes the engine, which has new cylinder heads, COMP Cam 268H-10 camshafts, high-performance valvetrain components (lifters, valve springs, timing chain, and gears), a Weiand 8007 intake, and high-performance ignition (cap, rotor, coil, plugs, and wires). This Dodge Charger’s steering box, radiator, fan clutch, thermostat, high-performance water pump, and coolant hoses are all new, as well.
The 3-speed automatic transmission has been rebuilt, too, and throughout the braking, A/C, and electrical systems, there’s tons more that’s been gone over and either repaired or replaced.
The 1975 Dodge Charger – the first year for the fourth-generation car and its more square front-end design – is not our favorite Charger, aesthetically speaking; that distinction goes to the third-generation muscle car (1971-1974). Still, it’s a big, classic, V8-powered American bruiser with rear-wheel drive and enough presence to make people stop in their tracks. All that makes it well worth the $7,300 price of admission.
