Low-Mileage 1974 Dodge Charger Is One Beautiful B-Body

Low-Mileage 1974 Dodge Charger Is One Beautiful B-Body Muscle car looks with a '70s living room for an interior! require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Thanks to a killer design and a little help from the Duke boys, the 1968-1970 Dodge Charger has always been a popular Mopar body style, and as such, its values remain high. But if you're in the market for a more affordable Mopar with just as much attitude, you should check out the third-gen Charger that lasted from 1971 to 1974.

When Mopar does a custom classic car, it's always spectacular, whether it's a Dodge muscle car like the 1,000-horsepower Super Charger or the monster Jeep Five-Quarter off-road pickup. For SEMA this year, Mopar skipped another Dodge sports coupe in favor of a 1968 Dodge D200 pickup truck done up as a lowrider, but with a twist. Or more accurately, with lots of twist.

Under the gorgeous candy red metallic body is a 5.9-liter 24-valve Cummins turbodiesel straight-six. It makes an estimated 325 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque, and it's paired with a six-speed manual transmission. Representatives from Chrysler estimated the weight of the engine and transmission alone at 1,100 pounds. The diesel engine's power goes to the rear wheels, which are 22 inches in diameter and 11 inches wide with fat 325-mm tires. The front wheels are a tad narrower at 9.5 inches.

As cool as the powertrain is, the exterior and the interior of the truck can't be ignored. This generation of Dodge pickup is already intriguing with its distinct character line with a little kink at the end and ribbed and louvered hood. These unique styling cues are accented now that Dodge removed various other details from the body such as the door handles, metallic trim and such. The bumpers were also reshaped to better fit the contours of the body, and the front wheels were pushed forward to reduce the long overhang of the stock truck. The bumpers, grille, and "smoothie" style alloy wheels were also painted in a solid cream color rather than chrome, which both accents the deep red body and gives the truck a more workmanlike feel, as low-trim cars typically had painted trim instead of chrome or stainless steel. The red paint also features subtle Cummins logos on the fenders and Dodge block lettering on the tailgate.

Own The Original Dodge Demon

Own The Original Dodge Demon Although different than the newest release, the classic Dodge Demon was made to perform! The modern Dodge Demon may have taken over the moniker when it comes to  popularity, but it was not the first to carry the name. This classic 1972 Dodge Demon from GR Auto Gallery is an excellent reminder that the badge was initially worn by a car that now screams of collector status. Initially introduced as a value package product by Mopar, the Dodge Demon was designed to carry stance and trim similar to that of the Dodge Dart.

The interior continues the simple and classy theme. The original bench seat remains, but with saddle brown leather upholstery. Leather trim has been added throughout, and exposed metal parts have been painted in the same color as the exterior. Simple gray cloth floor mats cover the bottom of the cab, and the instrument panel uses new Mopar gauges in a machine-turned metal housing. The original steering wheel remains, but a custom shifter with red Cummins shift knob sticks through the floor.
