This challenger is a great driver that has plenty of torque, comfort and turns heads anywhere you take it. The blue exterior paint really shines and grabs everybody's attention going down the road. Equipped with A/C, the interior is very comfortable and looks to be restored with all original parts including the radio and gauges. A 3 gauge set has been added below the dash so you can accurately keep an eye on oil pressure, water temp and voltage. The engine bay holding the 340 power plant is detailed nicely. The 340 equipped with polished headers sounds great and pulls this car along with ease. The 727 shifts smooth and makes the car easy and fun to drive. Overall this car drives smooth, stops good, is very comfortable and clean all around. If you are looking for a great 1972 Challenger to drive and enjoy, look no further!
The muscle car door was slamming with a mighty bang in 1972 as insurance rates, emissions and lower compression rates led to feebler engines. The Challenger lineup was trimmed to two models, and the convertible was deleted. The base hardtop was paired with the Rallye Coupe and the R/T was gone. Design changes were minimal for the 1972 Dodge Challenger. The grille sloped down on each side and extended below the bumper, while the headlights were in separate panels. The taillights were located in two separate units on each side of the rear valance and both Rally grille and tail panel were blacked out. Big engines were a thing of the past, as were shaker hoods. All that was available was the flat hood or the twin dummy scoops. All bumpers were now chrome instead of body-colored urethane. Leather was no longer an interior option. Rallye gauges, however, were still available and included a clock and tachometer. The pistol grip 4-speed gearshift continued, and a console was still available for an extra $52.
