Original Green Paint: 1973 Dodge Challenger 340

To the casual observer, it could appear that Dodge entered the pony car wars almost a half a decade late with a big meaty E-body in 1970, but Dodge actually built a fastback pony car before the Mustang that was known as the Plymouth Barracuda.  However, we are here to talk about a car that shared the E-body with the third generation of Barracuda — the Challenger. Find this 1973 Dodge Challenger 340 offered for $16,900 in Mobile, AL via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

For as long as I can remember, prices for the Dodge Challenger have been high…not Porsche 911 high…but they usually cost more than a similarly equipped Mustang Coupe or Camaro.   However, this 340 V8 equipped Challenger is offered with factory original paint in good shape at a price between a #3 “Good” and #4 “Fair” car according to Hagerty –and  I think that means this is a buy.
