Mike D 1972 Dodge Challenger 2dr Hardtop Coupe

43 years young & running strong.

I ordered this in October of '71 and received it Nov. 7th. Restored in '97 from the ground up and kept pretty much stock. It was ordered as a demo for the dealership as my Dad was friends with the owner and was quite faster than the other ones around town. Ma Mopar had put a '71 340 engine in it with the heads being shaved to 12:1 compression. I used to have it supertuned when new to drag race it on Grudge Night at Fremont Dragstrip. That dyno only registered 400 hp. and it pegged the needle when ever I had it tuned. It turned high 13s at right at 100 mph, not bad for a "stock" car with Polyglas tires. It gets driven every week now, up to 2 years ago it was my daily driver.
