Cathy just called me and a member of our mustang club has a 1972 Charger 400 for sale. This is what I was told about it as per what the member told Cathy.

1972 Dodger Charger 400
Factory gold paint
Factory sun roof
factory vinyl roof
White int
Auto trans
air
All stock and in very good condition.

They need to sell it because the husband had a stroke and they are getting rid of all his toys. They are offering it for $15,000.00 CDN or best offer and said that they would give it to us for $13,500.00 CDN. I was thinking this might be a good flip car or a toy to mess around with, I really do not know much about them but figured somebody here probably does. Looking forward to your comments

Well John, from a Philippine perspective, I would not get involved - and I've had offers of nice 71 and 72 Chargers in the past. They're not the real collectibles in the Charger lineup (that would be 68-70), but you'll have the same amount of trouble finding spares for them.
It's a shame 'cos they're a nice drive, but for many folks they look goofy.

I agree with Simon. The 72 just doesn't have the draw a 70 does.

Can you afford, and do you have the room to store it??? If yes to both, buy it, you never know what might happen this next year.

The easiest way to find something lost, is to buy a replacement.

John, having been into Chargers for a few years (I owned a '70 RT/SE) I can "ditto" what the others have said---the 72 model is not highly desired, especially with the 400 in it.
The '68-'70 is the most prized, followed by the '66-'67 and then the '71. The '72 and later models got too long and luxurious and most collectors kind of steer clear.
Now if you were buying it to keep and drive then it's a maybe. But for a "flip", especially at the price he's asking, is not really a winning proposition.
Hope this helps

$13,500 is a lot of money for a $5000 car.

After some internet checking and asking here I agree with you and everybody else, that is why I asked here. I have told them thanks but no thanks.
