Looking for good clear pics of '73-'74 Chargers, any model, escpecially Rallye and SE with or without Halo vinyl top, black, blue, yellow, white, any color ok. Also requesting any info on '73 Chargers, such as:

1) Was it possible to order a black Charger Rallye w/ a red side Rallye stripe?
2) What are the HP/Performance Specs of a '73 Charger SE, 400ci/auto 2bbl?
3) Where can I find info on any & all specs of a '73 Charger SE w/ the 400 Engine? Production #s, Color Combos, etc?

I have a '73 Charger SE, B5 blue w/ white vinyl top, B5 blue interior, #'s matching 400/auto, 25,000 original miles, just wondering what I could do w/ the engine to get it around 300 HP for decent performance?

1. Mostly red stripes were red/yellow phasered and reflective stripes. Never have seen a SOLID red rallye stripe mounted on a car HOWEVER once I saw on a dealer down here ( Venezuela ) a SOLID RED door stripe section on its Mopar Box. Dealer closed its doors, so I don't have access anymore to that stripe.

2.
Engine Bore    Stroke  Horsepower      Torque          Compression   Barrels
400     4.340   3.380  175 @ 3600   305 @ 2400           8.20 : 1       2
400     4.340   3.380  185 @ 3600   310 @ 2400           8.20 : 1       2

3. As far we know there is no source about models sold with that kind of detail on laters models beside engine, tranny, Model ( SE, Coupes, Coupes Rallyes, Hardtops and hardtops Rallyes ), no color or equipemnt subdivisions, just on earliers.

Pics will come. I'll add some later

AND WELCOME

ABOUT PERFORMANCE TO 400, one of the best we know and also increadible cheap againts final result is stroke to 451 CI with 440 crank. Only NON STOCK piece you need is HiPo aftermarket pistons. Rest can be used stock pieces already on your engine. Maybe just finding a 4 Bbls spreadbore stock manifold from any junkyard
http://www.arengineering.com/articles/articleframe.html

Beside that, you can go with any aftermarket rebuilt and HiPo kits, from Cranks, to cam, heads, manifolds, headers etc... as I have told severald times. 400 is a coal pieze ready to be a diamond with just minor touchs. Is the bigger bore available on any Mopar engine and te stronger block with some internal reinforcements casted and forged, so you already have displacement there, just need Increase stroke and Compression.

A 74 and a 73


Just to clear. This could it be not an Original one. Rallye stripes were not available on SEs on books, HOWEVER we have known about some originals and very rare SES Rallye packaged with bulged hood exception. What I want to mean is that this SE particullary could have just added stripes, including te deck lid stripe... or not. It looks does have also bulged hood. Sure this stuff is added

Is this car untouched?

I have detailed about 4 dozens of cars pics searching for the right body line location. My body man made this panel like this where quarter body line doesn't meet with rear valence and looks like pointing out to bumper corner, however half of the cars I have seen, this body lines meets with valence corner... what's the true ? I have detailed pics that Paul sent me about his untouched Rallye car and looks intermediate LOL where doesn't meet but is not that high.

Nacho-RT74,

Pictures are a little deceiving.  My Charger has never had any bodywork and the body line is only slightly above the top of the curve in the chrome trim piece.  I just so happen to have some good shots of this deception on my website...check out page 2 on the Charger photos.  From the viewpoint of standing next to it, the bodyline actually looks higher than it is.  I just went to the garage and looked.  With a straight-edge, the body line comes virtually straight across the top of the curved chrome piece of moulding.  The pictue you highlighted looks correct but as I said..looks are slightly deceiving. 

Actually, if it's a car that doesn't have the chrome trim, the body line might actually line up with the valance.

Nacho- it has been repainted, but the sheet metal there is all original, as well as the plastic filler between the bumper and the body. Never any rust repair back there either.

Can you supply me with pics of the engine and engine bay? I am looking to see what paint colors were used for various parts under the hood. My '73 has a 400 2bbl, the engine is a medium blue color (not Petty or Corporation Blue)..... Can I also see pics of the trunk and some of the grille?
My engine bay, restored as stock appearence. is 4bbls but 2bbls are the same look but with single snorkel air cleaner

I didn't found Chrysler blue, is ford blue ( impossible to buy and get air shipped cans and enamels )  but really looks the same

Grille... this is a SE kind. My car is rallye ( called R/T down here in Venezuela ) but on 74 Venezuela Chargers were SE grilles equipped with chromed edges and red insert to make differences from 73 down here. SEs weren't assemblied


More pics about my car in my signature link... is an amateur resto mostlky done by myself and is my first car



LOL how easy would it be to remove the SE window louvers and make them the Rallye Charger "boomerang" windows? I know it is a plug of some sort, but is it easy to do or should I just leave it be?

Is mostly easy if you find the donor parts car. The harder part is remove B pillar post and elongate the roof drip rail, same as make a Jam cut on door opening area to the glass be hidden when you are rolling down.. I would preffer retore that one unless is a piece of crap... you allways will have WP29 on VIN. Parts related Beside the body job mentioned:
- Regulators if you want a  hardtop rolling down glass car ( WH23 ) . If not you can allways go for a Coupe option ( WL21 ) with fixed glass attached with a special bracket on to of inner quarter frame. If that's the case, then you will need also a donor parts car, but less parts needed.
- ALL channels and brackets related ( same, if you go for rolling down glasses ). If you go with coupe, of course you won't need.
- THE RIGHT GLASS ( coupe or hardtop ) glass and vertical molding.
- Inner Sail panel.
- Upper inner panel... with crank hole if is hardtop or without hole if is coupe or powered glass hardtop.
- sides headliners moldings.
- roofrail molding and weatherstrips.
- Of course, Boomerang molding.
- Outer quarter glass weatherstipp, and inners of interior panels are damaged or missed.
-quarter Jam seals

About vinyl top... of course moldings related if you go with canopy or full vinyl top ( halo )

That's all I can remember right now.

I will also need quarter panels, and a drivers side front fender, as well as a pass. side lower fender patch panel, and a nice trunk lid and the body will be ready to be sanded  and primed for paint. It has some very slight surface rust on the top of the fenders and a scarce amount on the hood, can that be completely removed by sanding or does it need to be treated with a rust inhibitor?

Everything is valid depends of how bad it is. Rignt now there is no quarter panels available, at least good ones.

Mine is B5 Blue w/ a white top and B5 blue interior... but it won't be that way when I'm done. I kind of want to make the bumpers fit more flush w/ the body like the '71s, there is a light grey rubber like thick gasket/molding between the bumper & body... what do I have to do to remove it so the bumpers fit more flush? Or should I just get '71-'72 Bumpers? Will they bolt right up? Thanks for any advice & help guys!

on front bumper is enough removing and getting closer to body, and if is needed enlarging the brackets to frame rails holes to get it MORE closer.

On rear you will need 71/72 bumper brackets since they are not adjustable.

I would love to know conditions of your rubber bumper fillers since I like and mine even they are not A LOT badlly, I would like at least find a center front one better than mine.


NOTE: 73 and 74 differences are related with seatbelts ( 3 points double retractor on 74 front ones ), wiring is not interchangeable at least without modifications on Underdash and Engine harnesses for teh interlock seatbelt system. Trunk floor has a hump for vapor separators gas tank on 74, for a while 73 is flat. Gas tank is bolted on front on 73 and earliers and straps are hooked on front. 74 are reversed.

1) Was it possible to order a black Charger Rallye w/ a red side Rallye stripe?


here is a Black Rallye with red stripe and canopy roof that somebody posted recently:

Now... is the Stripe original ? I don't know. On these days You can order aftermarket Red stripe at YR1 and several stripes makers. As far I remember the red original stripe I found on a Mopar parts dealer long time ago had like its similar phasered the outer edge in black, but not sure.

I know this is an old topic but I was searching the web to try and find a picture of a charger like the one I used to have and I ran across this thread.

It ask for pictures of Rallye chargers. Although this isn't a very good picture, there wasn't one like it so I thought I'd post the only picture I have of my old charger.

 It's a 1974 Charger Rallye 440 magnum, auto, power steering, power brakes, 14" Magnum 500 wheels, all stock with the laser stripe that fades yellow to red. I bought the car in 1976 for $2900 and sold it in 1980 for $1350. It was a daily driver and body was perfect except for minor door dings and small tears in the vinyl side stripe, the interior was near perfect also.  It was in the middle of the first gas crisis and I was only getting abt.8-10 mpg, being this was my work car and I was commuting abt 40 miles a day the cost of gas was killing me. You can't believe how many times I wished I had that car back !!
