Auto World strikes it rich with this Gold 1974 Dodge Challenge Rallye! The list of finely detailed featured on this model are almost too long to mention. Under the hood in multi-colors is the 360 V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor. In 1974 this was the Performance package and put out 245 horsepower with 320 lb. ft of torque. The black rubber bumperettes each added about 5 horsepower as well. Just kidding! Considered an eye sore by many enthusiasts I have to laugh at them. I was a 7-year-old kid in The Bronx when the '74 Challengers came out and I appreciate how these could save the chrome bumper from dings. Easier to replace the rubber than the whole bumper too. The front grille and taillight details are precise, and this model really fits nicely into dioramas. Auto World is great at making the most realistic diecast models and even the scale is "true 1:64". This is a 2023 release and available in Target, Walmart, Hobby Lobby and other stores that stock 1:64 scale diecast as well as autoworldstore.com. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these vintage muscle classics before they wind up on Mecum or Barrett-Jackson!
