If you drove down Woodward Avenue in Detroit at night often enough in the 1970s, there was a slim chance you’d run into “The Black Ghost,” and if you did, the chances were even slimmer that you might run into him. get over it To clarify, he said Ghost wasn’t some otherworldly specter: I’m referring to the invincible Hemi-powered 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE piloted by Godfrey “GQ” Qualls, when he wasn’t working his day job as an Officer. Detroit Police. The Ghost of Qualls only appeared in the strip after dark, and only very rarely, but he established himself as a legend on the local scene nonetheless.
We’re sorry, but this video could not be loaded.
The Black Ghost was, in fact, such a legend that Dodge thought to name its latest Last Call 2023 special edition after the thing, mimicking the original “Gator-Grain” vinyl roof pattern, black paint, and white rear stripe. in this new limited production. Challenger. Oh, and to make sure buyers can walk any rival like the original did, the automaker also stuffed 807 horsepower under the hood.
Consider the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost as the two-door counterpart to last week’s Last Call reveal, the 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytonawhich offered the same amount of power, was also limited to just 300 examples and similarly honored a 1970s racing icon.
Other tweaks that set this Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody apart from its stock ’23 Chally include hood pins, chrome wheels and fuel cap, and a bevy of badging inside and out; An African flag sticker like the one the original Black Ghost wore behind the front wheels is not included.
The Challenger Black Ghost is the last 2023 special edition model that Dodge plans to introduce until the SEMA show in early November, when it pulls the covers off its “last goodbye of its kind.”
It was preceded by five other cars, including the aforementioned King Daytona, the challenger draw, super loader beeY the Challenger and the Charger Scat Pack Swinger. Those later models are basically appearance package cars limited to 1,000 units each, but we have a feeling number seven will feature some real mechanical upgrades and much more limited production.
In addition to the seven specials, we’ll note that even base 2023 model year Challengers and Chargers will get a special “Last Call” plaque under the hood, this being the end of the nameplates and all.
