October 21, 2023, Update – We confirmed the listing for this “ClassiFIND” expired, so with no replacement found, we’re assuming this ride is “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
We’ve been seeing a trend as of late, especially in the Mopar community, where the seller of a classic car plans to provide two motors as part of the sale. Specifically, the car features a non-original motor, while the original powerplant, for whatever reason, is no longer in the car but is included.
This white 138K original mile 1973 Dodge Charger SE for sale, last spotted in September 2023 on Craigslist in Kalispell, Montana, is one such example. This nicely-optional Charger originally came equipped with the then top-of-the-line 400 cubic inch V8. While that original numbers matching engine will be included as part of the sale, this 1973 Dodge Charger SE for sale currently features a 383 cubic inch V8 sourced from an undisclosed 1969 Chrysler product. A nice touch is that despite the engine swap, the installer made it a point to reinstall the factory air conditioning equipment.
Last offered for $19,500, Classic.com, the analytics and search engine for the collector car market, confirms the ask is at the low end of this guide’s rolling six-month results for all third-generation Dodge Chargers produced from 1971 through 1974. By clicking on the green dots in the graph below, you can get a sense of what comparable examples sold for in the past rolling six months:
As a second data point, the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool reveals the seller’s ask falls between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $18,050 and its #2 “Very Good” appraisal of $26,000.

This white 138K 1973 Dodge Charger SE for sale features its original paint. While the seller calls their Charger “rust-free,” their definition apparently does not include surface rust that the pictures provided clearly show. In this instance, that’s okay, as the car is said to feature its original paint. With two motors provided and a fresh vinyl top, this 1973 Dodge Charger SE is a nicely optioned example that even features factory air conditioning.
