Chrysler Charger/Centura/Drifter Van 1971-1978 - 2021 Market Review

Chargers you might think fit better into the Muscle Car listings and some of them already do. However, there are still 4.0-litre XLs and 4.3-litre 770s with family-owner appeal that sell in the vicinity of $50,000. These appeal to people who love the chunky Charger shape without needing the aggravation of triple carburettors or the cost of an R/T.

Late-series 770s with 5.2-litre V8s are becoming harder to find and can exceed $65,000.

Drifter vans are scarce and good ones priced below $35,000 are well worth a look.

Back when Centuras were new, almost everyone hated them and a lot went to the wrecker. Now there are young drivers who think a French-sourced Centura with six-cylinder power is just about the coolest thing you can buy for $15K.
