Steve Strope's Pure Vision custom shop has built a gorgeous 1973 Challenger resto-mod, complete with a modern 392 engine, as a golf prize for the Charles Schwab Ultimate Challenge at The Colonial- a country club in Fort Worth, Texas. Maybe we should take up golf?

The car had to be a ’73 Dodge Challenger, to play into the year Charles Schwab opened for business and the Schwab Challenge tournament name. Also, the colors needed to reflect the sponsor’s corporate medium-light-blue- and-white scheme.

nice restomod- very sympathetic to the original's looks.

I've always thought that if the front panel (surround around headlights / grille) were blacked out - it would give the '72 - '74 models a more aggressive look to the front end.

The '70 / '71 had that negative space defined by the recessed and darker grille finish - the '72+ being body color made things blend in more, especially with the lighter colors

Yes, a blacked out surround would have added a much more aggressive look. (y)
