We are happy to offer this head-turning “rotisserie” restored 1972 Dodge Challenger with only 278 miles on the clock. This menacing muscle car underwent a head-to-toe transformation which involved months of meticulous work and over $100,000.
Its original 318 motor was swapped for a massive 440 crate engine pushing out 500 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. Don’t get us started on the sound… it will blow you away.
This Challenger’s body is finished in a striking HEMI Orange exterior paint. It features a T/A spoiler, black rear window louvers, matte black styling decals on either side of the car, as well as a fiber glass hood finished in matte black to complete the orange and black theme. The color theme continues with its 18″ Boss Motorsports wheels.
Restoration & Upgrades
The vehicle underwent a complete, no expense spared, restoration in 2008 at the cost of over $100,000. The car was totally stripped, refinished and restored in its entirety (a true “rotisserie” restoration).
Only 278 miles (447 kms) have been racked up on its brand new odometer since restoration. Bills and documentation included with the sale. For more information, please inquire.
The car’s interior is virtually flawless with only slight wear on some of its original, secondary interior components. Sitting inside takes you right back to 1972 as it feels as though you’ve stepped into a time capsule.
Everything looks and feels new thanks to an excellent restoration to the dashboard, centre console, seats, carpets, etc. Leather, plastics and metals are clean and undamaged. No issues with any interior components. Trunk floor painted grey.
Seats & Trim
Absolutely no corners were cut in the restoration/creation of this ’72 Challenger. The interior features gorgeous and flawless black leatherette seats with luxurious wood accents on the dashboard and gear selector.
The seats are in perfect shape and show no signs of wear and tear. No fading, stretching or cracks. All trim and seems are clean, impeccable and, of course, rust-free.
Features, Dashboard & Instrumentation
Everything works as intended – all electrical components are operational.
- Air conditioning
- Wood interior trim
Engine & Mechanical
Following its restoration, everything was rebuilt on this Challenger to get it running like new including its engine, transmission and differential. This 1972 Dodge Challenger’s heart and soul is a 440 cu in V8 (7.2L) which pushes out an impressive 500 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.
The engine idles very well, revs smoothly and pulls hard. The exhaust is loud and mean, as is tradition. The heavy duty automatic transmission is smooth and offers great torque delivery which helps the car put its huge power down.
No mechanical issues. No lights on the dash or strange noises. The engine compartment is extremely clean, as is the undercarriage.

Wheels, Tires & Brakes
It sits on staggered 18” wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich G-Force tires all around (225/45 R18 front, 245/45 R/18 rear). These brand new wheels feature a gloss black primary finish along with a beautifully contrasting chrome inner lip. The car has front disc brakes.
Body, Paint & Chrome
All body panels are clean and straight. No panel gaps or issues with the car’s body. Slight misalignment on the fiber glass hood.
Its striking Hemi Orange paint is in fantastic condition and really comes alive under a clear sun. There are a few minor and inevitable rock chips at the lower, most vulnerable areas of the car’s body panels (i.e. behind the rear wheels/fender). All decals are new. All of the chrome parts on the entire vehicle is brand new as well.
A lack of B-pillar allows for a large window opening and a sportier look. The rear window louvers are new.
This pristine rotisserie restored 1972 Dodge Challenger is a beauty to look at and a missile to drive. It is an absolute show stopper that draws questions and compliments from both young and old.
