Dodge Challenger Black Ghost (It Turns Out The Original Black Ghost Was A 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T)

The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost, one of several final gas-powered Challengers and Chargers to produced before the muscle car transitions to electric power, pays homage to a notoriously enigmatic black 1970 model. 

Black Ghost was a fitting moniker for the original muscle car, which occasionally cruised Detroit’s Woodward Avenue and Stecker, an industrial street, fifty years ago, before slinking away undetected. 

According to reports, it never lost and never drew a draw, but it also never stuck around for a burger and conversation. Could you picture that happening now? A mysterious muscle car that has never seen at a car show or on social media.

Only 300 of the Black Ghost Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody (upped to 807 hp) muscle cars will produced, making your chances of seeing one today nearly as slim as seeing the original in the 1970s.

It discovered that car enthusiast Godfrey Qualls’ 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE was the first Black Ghost.

 Surprisingly, “GQ” was a police officer in Detroit, and this apparent conflict of interest may have contributed to the Black Ghost’s ability to appear and vanish so stealthily. 

Black “gator skin” roof vinyl graphs, Challenger script badges (grille, fender, and spoiler), and white bumblebee rear fender graphics are just a few of the exterior cues that show that the new Black Ghost is a contemporary take on the original.

 The front chrome Dodge badge and the matching chrome fuel filler door are a nice contrast to the otherwise all-black exterior. (A locking gas cap was a dead giveaway that Quall was a cop.) The 20×11″ Satin Carbon Warp Speed rims stopped by black six-piston Brembo brakes.
