One Year Gone: 1967 Dodge Charger 29K Mile 383/Automatic Survivor – SOLD!

Sep 2020 | Classifinds, Free For All Friday

September 3rd Update – while updating our Free For All Friday database, we confirmed the private seller of this 26K original mile ’67 Dodge Charger survivor deleted their latest post, so we’re taking that as a positive sign the revised under-$30K asking price converted this vintage Mopar to “Sold!” status.

July 30th Update:  What a difference one year can make.  When we first featured this 1967 Dodge Charger nearly one year ago to the day, our website barely had anyone other than friends and family reading when this survivor has 27K miles and an asking price of $34,000.  With nearly six thousand email subscribers and tens of thousands of monthly site visitors now, we thought it would be good to re-feature this Charger now that it has 29K miles and a lower asking price of $27,300.  Other than the links, we’ve left the original post format in place with pictures from one year ago in place.

We discovered this Gold over black vinyl 1967 Dodge Charger with only 26K original miles in July 2019 on Craigslist in Attica, New York where the private seller was originally asking $34,000. The car now has 29K miles and a price of $27,300.  Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a guide, the private seller now his Charger priced between the #2 “Excellent” appraisal of $33,100 and the #3 “Good” estimate of $22,200. Worth noting is that prices of these first-generation Chargers have remained flat for the past four years.

Dodge introduced the new Charger made in mid-1966.  Built on Chrysler’s B-Body platform, while Chargers shared their chassis and front clip with the Coronet, the new car used a unique fastback roofline that gave the car a very distinctive look, particularly from the rear three-quarter view.  The interior featured two distinctive design features.  Most noticeable are the four individual bucket seats with a full length console that extends from front to rear. The rear buckets and center armrest pad folded flat, allowing hatchback-like finished cargo space.  At night, the next noticeable interior detail was how the instrument panel and console used electroluminescence rather than traditional bulbs that gave the interior a unique glow.

The current owner does not provide much information beyond the fact his rustproofed Charger is “Laser Straight” and features one repaint in what we believe to be a custom shade of green metallic.  While he states his car has 29K original miles, he also mentions his car has the “correct 383”, so despite the low miles we’re wondering whether that means his car has a replacement engine.  You’ll need to confirm that with him.  A 727 TorqueFlight automatic transmission sends the big V8’s power to a 3.55:1 Sure Grip rear end.  This Charger comes with the original build sheet and Certicard.  While currently equipped with dated American Racing wheels shod with new tires, the owner states that the original hub caps will be included as part of the sale.  The only other non-stock item we notice are the after market tachometer attached to the steering column and accessory gauge cluster mounted underneath the dashboard.

We prefer these Turbine car-inspired first generation Chargers over the more popular second generation design because of its unique interior.  This survivor will be a great conversation piece at any local car show or MOPAR-themed event you cruise in it too.  Good luck with the purchase!

    In 1966 I was a salesman in a Dodge dealership outside of San Francisco. I had mostly Coronets as demos but my favorite was a silver Charger with a red interior. It had a 318 in it so it wasn’t a screamer. We took it up to Bodie state Park, which is a ghost town South of Lake Tahoe and is 9000 feet above sea level .My wife, baby and I slept in the back of the Charger quite comfortably. When we awoke, on an August morning, the creek next to the car had frozen.It gets cold at altitude.
