133381 / 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bz35nyx If you're the kind of buyer who wants a nice muscle car that you can actually drive and show off, this classic Dodge is, without a doubt, one of the best deals on the planet! This awesome coupe's high quality, frame-off restoration began with a rust-free original body that was garage kept for most of its life. That said, this isn't 1971 anymore and this Challenger is no longer a run-of-the-mill assembly line creation, so that solid original body was thoroughly stripped, lovingly sanded and massaged to a level that's much nicer than its original showroom condition. Once the car's panels were correctly aligned, and its intimidating slab-sided ambiance was fully reconstructed, a correct coat of Chrysler code GW3 Bright White paint was expertly applied under a correct vinyl top and fresh Challenger R/T decals. And today, this razor-sharp E-Body sits as an ultra-straight, fully detailed pavement pounder that elicits loud comments and long stares every time it hits the road! Lift the car's long, freshly finished hood and you'll find an original 340 cubic inch Chrysler V8 that's been fully rebuilt and thoroughly detailed for show. On the sides of that engine's block, a 2780930 casting number indicates this is a correct LA powerplant. And on the passenger's side of that engine's block, a January 14, 1971 casting date and matching 1B435253 partial VIN confirm this particular LA powerplant is indeed the original mill for this Bright White Challenger. Behind that stout V8 you'll find an original, and completely rebuilt, A727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly, powers down the road with ease and wears a correct 1B435253 partial VIN. At the front of the car's floors, a good looking factory suspension has been fitted with new bushings and a rebuilt power steering system. At the back of the car's floors, a familiar 8.75 Sure Grip rear end utilizes steep 3.55 gears to throw power to the pavement with authority. And at the corners of the car's floors, rebuilt drum brakes provide the kind of quick and reliable stops that perfectly counter a traditional 14 inch Rallye wheels and fresh F70-14 Firestone Wide Oval tires. Sit down inside this great looking Challenger and you'll find a new vinyl interior which is accented with just the right amount of tasteful wood applique and bright stainless trim. The first thing you'll notice is the car's high quality bucket seats which feature comfortable pleats on top of straight frames and what feels like new foam. The second thing you'll notice is the optional factory console which wraps a traditional T-handle shifter in what seems like a mile of fade-free wood surfacing. The third thing you'll notice is a great looking dash that hangs a rebuilt Rallye instrument cluster above a small Auto Meter oil gauge and controls for the car's heat and air conditioning. And the fourth thing you'll notice is an attractive wood-rimmed steering wheel that mixes a whole lot of form with a whole lot of function. Classics like this freshly restored Challenger are what make this hobby fun! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information!
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #38: 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 426 HEMI Mr. Norm's
http://www.facebook.com/MuscleCarOfTheWeek http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com They say the right dealer makes all the difference, and in this case, the dealer is almost as significant as the car! It's cool enough to imagine walking into your local Dodge dealer and ordering up a brand-new 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T complete with a 425 HP 426 Hemi under the hood, but when the car was bought at Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge in Chicago, the whole experience is even cooler. Mr. Norm Krauss was all about selling high performance, and his legendary Dodge dealer not only sold these bad machines, but they also modified, tuned, and raced 'em themselves! This particular car from the Brothers Collection is the stuff of legends... triple black, 426 Hemi, pistol-grip 4-speed, Super Trak Pak 4.10:1 Dana 60 rear, and a bill of sale from Grand Spaulding. Too cool.
1970 Dodge Challenger 440 V8 Sublime Green Mopar Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1970 Dodge Challenger. Named to "challenge" anyone on the street, this Dodge debuted in 1970 and became an instant classic. Under the hood, you will find a powerhouse of nostalgic engineering, a 440 CID V8 wedge engine. These engines are known for their power but are not as hyped as the popular Hemi. The transmission is a stout 727 TorqueFlite automatic which has been known to handle up to 550 horsepower. The exterior of the car is the factory Sublime Green color that it had in 1970. The interior is comprised of new black vinyl and looks very clean. The interior matches the vinyl top on the exterior of the car. The car was completely restored in 2007 and looks amazing. Before the epoxy paint the car was taken all the way down to bare metal. We even place mirrors along the underside of the car in our showroom to highlight the craftsmanship. The 440 engine has been bored .030 over and offers a mild camshaft and 2 1/2 inch stainless steel Exhaust. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
