Used Car of the Day: 2023 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Widebody

Today's used car of the day is barely used. A Michigan-based seller has simply decided it's already time to move on to the next thing -- this seller claims not to be a flipper.


Fun fact: I once lived near where this seller does.

Anywho, the car has factory hood pins and a six-speed manual with a cue-ball shifter. That shifter also has a short throw.

The mileage is low, under 1,200, and the seller claims to have closely followed the break-in protocol. It looks like our seller is parting ways with this car to make way for a Demon 170.

The price is $59,750.

A quick note -- the database was heavy today with cars that were similar to ones previously featured. So please don't whine that this car is basically brand new. See it instead as a chance to get a Challenger without dealing with a dealer.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    Sexy!!!!


    Love the wide body and the color is great. Screw the boring colors, their fine for minivans and run of the mill CUVs. Manuals suck in a truck but the only way to go in a car like this. Cloth is a non-starter for me, leather and it would be perfect!

    Is a nice car i have two in my garage IS confortable but i need money i'm selling one AT lower price

  • Kosmo Love it. Can I get one with something other than Subaru's flat four?
  • M B When the NorthStar happened, it was a part of GM's "rebuilding" of the Cadillac brand. Money to finance it was shuffled from Oldsmobile, which resulted in Olds having to only facelift its products, which BEGAN its slide down the mountain. Olds stagnated in product and appearances.First time I looked at the GM Parts illustration of a NorthStar V-8, I was impressed AND immediately saw the many things that were expensive, costly to produce, and could have been done less expensively. I saw it as an expensive disaster getting ready to happen. Way too much over-kill for the typical Cadillac owner of the time.Even so, there were a few areas where cost-cutting seemed to exist. The production gasket/seal between the main bearing plate and the block was not substantial enough to prevent seeps. At the time, about $1500.00 to fix.In many ways, the NS engine was designed to make far more power than it did. I ran across an article on a man who was building kits to put the NS in Chevy S-10 pickups. With his home-built 4bbl intake and a 600cfm Holley 4bbl, suddenly . . . 400 horsepower resulted. Seems the low hood line resulted in manifolding compromises which decreased the production power levels.GM was seeking to out-do its foreign competitors with the NS design and execution. In many ways they did, just that FEW people noticed.
  • Redapple2 Do Hybrids and be done with it.
  • Redapple2 Panamera = road porn.
  • Akear What an absurd strategy. They are basically giving up after all these years. When a company drinks the EV hemlock failure is just around the corner.
