1. This is the way my best friend Slick’s 1973 Challenger Rallye 340 looked after uncovering it after it sat for over 25 years, cob webs and all. The blacked-out tail treatment was done back in 1983. With today’s quality restoration paints available, we decided to refurbish the rear end with (what we think is) a more tasteful—and original—treatment. As mentioned in the text, this rebuild/restoration of “The Slick Challenger” will be a tribute to its late, former owner.
