1983 Dodge Charger Review


Great Gas Mileage


Look at it - it's not a REAL charger :(


First Car — This car was my first car, it was either this or a senior class ring. I thought i'd get more mileage from a car then a ring, so.... The Car did what it was supposed to do. It was owned by a fire marshall before me, and the gearing I BELIEVE was futzed with. While it had decent pickup, it didn't have a lot of power for a 2.2 Lt car. It usually had to be downshifted on big hills 1 or 2 gears. Where it made up for that was it's top speed. The gearing allowed for something over 130. Never quite hit the top end - there were no roads long enough for it to get to the top speed. After a accident in a blizzard, i had to have a new hood and front grill put on. The only replacement at the time that could be found was a white Plymouth Duster... so I then had a VERY getto car for the remainder of it's life. It was full of repair needs, but got great gas mileage. I could usually go to Boston (from Burlington Vermont), to and from, on 1 tank of gas. There's NO car out there anymore that can really claim the same. Thank you petroleum industry.

Dodge... — Looks like a Dodge Daytona Shelby, just worse...hahaha Not a bad car, same 2.5L engine as all the K-cars, brutal reliablity. I changed the valve cover gasket and cleaned the connection for the gas gauge. This car was up the street and I coasted it home. On the way home it turned from 17,999 miles to 18,000 miles. Belonged to a little old man.. Totally original and bone stock in every detail...down to the AM radio.

Great performance




'83 Dodge Charger The Best There Was. — '83 Dodge Charger 2.2, was the best car I ever owned. It was red with black vinyl trim. It took a beating and kept on going. It could handle high water, half way up the door, without stalling out. I made a great work vehicle. I would love to get my hands on one today, and restore it. You could drive it until it couldn't be repaired any longer.
