today’s seller nice price or no dice The charger has the original Monroney sticker even though it is not the original owner. Let’s see if this Hemi-powered sedan of his is priced to pass that heirloom to a new owner soon.
A similar question can be asked about How valuable are baseball cards to old-timers who have long been considered bench warmers? 1987 Audi Coupe GT we saw yesterday Not exactly a benchwarmer, but lacking the quattro AWD and turbocharged engine of its more powerful sibling, it wasn’t considered an MVP. Still, in the automotive world, the classic Audi coupe is an interesting, if not ideal, option.At $10,000, yesterday’s results weren’t interesting enough, but a crucial 65% No Dice I ran into a loss.
So I had a dog that was part Jack Russell Terrier and part Chihuahua. After I hired him, I learned that this is a fairly common combo, usually called “Jack Cheese”. In fact, Ford is about to launch a new electric vehicle for Europe based on Volkswagen’s MEB platform. Will Ford promote borrowed architecture in its new car ads? Probably not.
Today’s 2007 Dodge Charger R/T is also a little messy. Designed during the honeymoon of the Daimler/Chrysler merger, this car has classic Mopar-style cues and a beefy pushrod V8 under the long bonnet, with plenty of Mercedes-derived chassis and suspension bits underneath. . In fact, his LX platform, which underpins both the Charger and its cousin the Chrysler 300, used a large amount of existing German technology to bring it to market. is that a bad thing? I hate it! But for buyers, it’s kind of a psychological letdown to think that the car they’re about to buy is based on previous generation kibbles and bits they rented.
Of course, given the end result, many of these concerns are easily forgotten, especially in Hemi-V8 guise. In fact, Mopar’s LX car can show the best horsepower per dollar of purchase. Let’s see if today’s Dodge is.
This charger comes with 136,000 ticker miles, a clean title and a recent gold star in smog tests. The paint job is Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat and is in pretty good condition with the exception of the left rear quarter which has a side swipe dent and scuff marks. The brightly polished factory 18-inch wheels nicely accent the ominous color scheme and appear to have no significant wear or tear.
The cabin offers leather seating surfaces and… well, lots of plastic. This wasn’t the best era for Mopar’s interior, and it’s a shame Mercedes DNA wasn’t sprinkled into her LX’s interior. Is this a damn third world sweatshop? No, but it’s not even up to modern standards.The driver’s seat upholstery shows a few scuffs, but other than that it seems very comfortable to live in. On the plus side, the seller claims the car has always been smoke-free and enjoys the latest details.
Future buyers may miss the minor interior issues entirely once they fire up the Charger’s 5.7-liter V8 engine and step into 340 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Backing up the Big Mill is a standard Mercedes-sourced 5G-Tronic 5-speed automatic for set-and-forget shifts.
According to the ad, the car is “running strong” and had recently had new brakes installed and a significant fluid change. As mentioned, the original windows also come with his stickers.
This model offers Chrysler’s Multiple Displacement System (MDS). This system shuts off the Hemi’s four cylinders when not under load, improving fuel economy a bit. By the way, it’s another piece of Mercedes-derived tech in the car, so equipped, this charger should be in his mid-twenties on the highway. That’s not half bad mileage, given the car’s available space and power.
The asking price for this charger is $6,200, and we’ll have to decide if that’s too bad. Do you think this hemi-powered R/T sedan is a bargain at its price? Or, at $6,200, is this a charger without juice?
