I think all I got was $40 for the 1:1 car from u pull it when my mother kicked me out of her house and wanted all my cars out too, 73 charger U code 440, 72 duster 318, sunroof car, and my grandfathers 71 dodge demon slant six basic as they ever came. If I remember right they gave me $40 per car and I had the titles to all of them! a check for $120.00 , i guess it was alot of money back in 1991 but i can kick myself in the ass now!
heres a pic of the charger that went to u pull it, Im going to see if my mother still has pics of the other cars
Its kind of hard to compare a generation 2 dodge charger to a 2002 dodge stratus that I dont think even has an american made drive train in it. I couldn't even compare it to the new dodge charger because it has 4 doors. A better comparison would be the new dodge challenger, its very similar to the 2nd generation charger in that you can get it with a v6 (comparison of a 318 in 1968) or a hemi (comparison of a 440 6pack or hemi in 1968).
You are correct though in that when they made that show dodge's were pretty much throw away cars back when they started that series. I know when I turned 16 in 1986 I was able to purchase a 1973 Charger SE factory 440HP magnum car with 76,000 miles with my $3.35 an hour taco bell pay for $1700.
