1973 Dodge Charger

Most of the changes for the 1973 Dodge Charger are cosmetic this year, as the engine offerings remained the same.  Base models featured a 225 slant six (rated at 105-hp) or a 318, 150-hp.  SE trims featured a 318, 400, and 440 with the 400 available in 2 or 4 barrel carbs while the Rallye trim offered a 340 magnum as well as the previous assortment of powerplants. All 1973 Charger models featured an enlarged rear quarter-window, but the SE trim had a specially designed rear triple "opera" window enveloped in a canopy style vinyl roof, giving the appearance of gills.  Also new this year in Rallye models were optional reflective side stripes.   Taillights became vertical slats and the hidden headlight option was discontinued.
A suspension redesign in the 1973 Dodge Charger resulted in an apparently quieter and smoother ride.  Owners of this car, who admittedly buy it either to retune the engines for speed or just for its awesome look, are also pleased with its dependability and durability on the road.
