HEMI® Spirit: Dodge Challenger Black Ghost Is Number Six of Seven Dodge ‘Last Call’ Special-edition Models

Dodge is announcing the brand’s penultimate “Last Call” special-edition model, the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost, a modern-day vision that channels the HEMI®-powered spirit of a muscle car that haunted metro Detroit’s famed Woodward Avenue in the 1970s.

The original Black Ghost, a black 1970 Dodge Challenger RT SE (special edition) owned by Godfrey Qualls, ruled Woodward Avenue in the 1970s. Qualls’ 1970 Challenger quickly earned a legendary reputation for flexing its 426 HEMI-powered muscle on Woodward and then driving off mysteriously into the night, not to be seen again for months, leading to the “Black Ghost” nickname. Not simply a local legend, in 2020, Qualls’ vehicle earned a spot on the National Historic Vehicle Register, and remains in the Qualls family to this day.

The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost special edition offers a modern manifestation of the historic vehicle, wrapping a black-and-chrome appearance, including unique black “gator skin” roof vinyl graphics similar to the original, around a Challenger SRT® Hellcat Redeye Widebody bumped up to 807 horsepower.

The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is the sixth of seven special-edition Dodge “Last Call” models, following the previously announced Dodge Challenger Shakedown, Dodge Charger Super Bee, Dodge Challenger and Charger Scat Pack Swinger, and Dodge Charger King Daytona models. The “Last Call” models celebrate the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, which are coming to an end in their current forms.

Just one final Dodge “Last Call” model will be announced — the very last of its kind — at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, scheduled for Nov. 1-4, 2022.

“There are so many legendary muscle cars in Dodge brand history, it was hard to choose the seven vehicles we wanted to pay homage to with our Last Call lineup, but the Black Ghost was an easy pick,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is the prelude to what we’re going to unveil with our seventh and final special-edition model.”

Only 300 of the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost “Last Call” models will be produced. All 300 will be Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody vehicles in Pitch Black exterior color.

My Ghost can be yours. I will escort you to my dealer and transfer my deal to you. You will be the “original owner”. My dealer has been instructed to only take the computer out of pre delivery mode and not to prep the car or uncover anything. All documentation is to be preserved. You can reply to this thread for contact by email.
My price is 100k over the cost of the deal. I have a guarantee at 30k over MSRP. I will provide a contract agreement with my order number that can be verified. You can get it now or at Mecum next year for more. Thanks


Any new black Ghost still available


I’m very interested in the Black Ghost package! I used to race on Telegraph all the time. Many of my best racing was at Plymouth and Outer Drive. Sorry Mustang guys but, I loved to race and leave behind Fox body mustangs. Today the new Mustangs would Kick the shit out of me… (Damn it). Nope I could keep up with the horsepower wars. Just so you know I ran and still have my 1979 10th anniversary 400 4spd Trans Am. The only upgrades I made were a CAM and headers. This ready woke this car up BIG TIME. best time on slicks was 12.90 E/T. Now I don’t race because this car is going up in value and well, I just don’t want to beat on it like I did years ago. I’ve raced a few time on Woodward back in the 90s. I wish I could have seen the Black Ghost cruse by, but by then it was waiting to be rediscovered by Gregory Qualls. Well now I have a chance to be apart up Detroit history and get the awesome “Black Ghost”.


Interested in a Black Ghost.

Somebody please tell me how to place an order?? I want the ghost :ghost: !!!


I hope you guys gift one to Godfrey Qualls’s family.




First of all I want to thank all you hard working folks at Ma Mopar. You have kept the genuine essence of Mopar Muscle cars alive for a whole new generation almost two decades now. You stayed true to the V8 RWD high performance scene while maintaining a fantastic looking original muscle car body design. And you stuck to it! You did all of this while constantly increasing horsepower and performance. To top it off you managed to accomplish all that while keeping within the insane commie-government CAFE and emission standards. GREAT JOB, WELL DONE and THANK ALL OF YOU VERY MUCH! RRDon (old time, life time, Mopar Guy)
PS In addition to my 68 Road Runner that I drive now, I’ll be placing an order for a 2023 Jailbreak (if I can find a dealer who can obtain one).


More stickers and badges.


These are some foot stomping kick ass Models. Once we order them we can order accessories for trim -bling and add power on the > pre Stage and > Stage 1 < Stage 2 > Stage 3 built on right at factory as shown on Msrp Monronoy. I want to buy a White Swinger Loaded including 2 power seats up front, Laguna leather throughout. I will be in touch, What time should I be at the Sema Booth for finale unveiling ?


I am a big fan of the Black Ghost and love the story. In my opinion, this car should have been built a little more true to the original car. That said, the 4:10 gear ratio, manual transmission, and SE packages probably should have been considered. Those items were what made the original car special. Oh, and the wheels probably should have been more reminiscent of the original car.
Overall, I’m glad Dodge has thought of the car and the story. But then, it’s not a version of the ghost I’d be interested to own.


I love all these ground shaking v8s they’ve unveiled so far and I just can’t believe there falling in line with all the rest of the pansy @$$es hopping on board the EV train. Get mad if you want to I don’t care they done this same crap back in the late 70’s and the 80’s and it ruined the muscle car and truck world. Ev’s aren’t anywhere near where they need to be to solve anything all they are now are a status symbol they get 300miles to a charge and then what you have to plug them in what’s then replenishing the depleted electricity. I mean on paper EV’s sound good but until there 100% self sustainable there just useless, pissing in the wind, wiping before you crap, but that’s just my ignorant opinion on the way the greatest damn muscle cars are going down the toilet AGAIN. 1st it was v6s then 4cy stangs now they’re all going electric never thought I’d see this in my life, just sad.


Love everything about the Black Ghost except it should have been done in the “Classic Body Style”. The Wide Body doesn’t follow the “nostalgic” theme…I have a 2019 Challenger Redeye in the Classic Body Style and wouldn’t have it any other way!


I love the way they are acknowledging their heritage made possible by their customers. I’ve owned 3 Chargers (R/T, Super Bee, and Hellcat) and a 300 SRT. Very fun cars. Fascinating to see how this platform is going out with a bang, not a whimper.


so basically what dodge is saying is… we are going to make it NEARLY impossible for anyone to get this car


Honestly, I love it. I wish you’d do more than 300. But more than that, I wish you would put a manual back in the Hellcat. It FORCES me to step down to a new Scat pack or try to get lucky on a used one. Please, sirs, can we just have one year of manual Hellcats more? Or just allow me to special order one. I won’t tell anyone.


I like it!


the rims are wrong, these rims suck


And beauty is her name! I think I found the challenger I’ve been looking for, well this or a Jailbreak depending on how wild those customization go.


I love this Black Ghost, wish I had a way to get one. With only 300 made I bet most are already spoken for. It’s a who you know kinda thing…


I really like this one! The vinyl roof option is cool (ok so not real vinyl-I misread). I’ll be on the lookout unless the markups are out of hand.
