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.

132245 / 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T Convertible
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7hy49h7
With a 604 cubic inch Hemi, a 5-speed transmission, and that vivid red
bodywork, this is not the car to choose if you want to go unnoticed.
Originally a Plum Crazy convertible with a wheezing 2-barrel 383 under the
hood, this car was purchased expressly for the conversion to a
fire-breathing, Hemi-powered supercar. The car was stripped to a bare shell
and substantial repairs and upgrades started there. New floors, doors, and
quarters were installed, and new-old-stock front fenders were sourced, and
a rust-free decklid was located and bolted in place. Once the steel was in
shape, the serious job of paint prep began, and several hundred hours
later, the 2-stage urethane was sprayed, this time in Rally Red instead of
the original Plum Crazy.

If you're the kind of buyer who wants to actually enjoy the hobby with a
car you can drive and show off for years, this 1971 Charger R/T is, without
a doubt, one of the best deals on the planet!
Fresh out of a high quality $60K concours restoration began with a
rust-free original body that was stripped, sanded and massaged to better
than showroom condition. Once the panels were correctly aligned, and the
cars intimidating slab-sided ambiance was fully reconstructed, a correct,
retina searing coat of Chrysler code GY3 Curious Yellow paint was expertly
applied under a correct flat black rear spoiler and fresh Charger R/T
decals. The result is an ultra-straight, fully detailed pavement pounder
which elicits comments and stares every time it hits the road.
Lift the long, freshly finished hood and you'll find the cars original 440
cubic inch Magnum V8 which has been fully rebuilt and detailed for show. On
the passenger's side of the engine, a correct 2536430 casting number, which
confirms the block as a 1966-72 440 RB engine, sits between a February 11,
1970 date code, a day shift indicator and a 3 o'clock time symbol; and on
the bottom of the engine a correct partial VIN of 1A150580 is stamped just
in front of the cars bellhousing. Air flows through a correctly detailed
satin black dual snorkel air cleaner into a correct four barrel carburetor
which is bolted to a glossy Hemi Orange intake manifold. At the front of
that intake, a correct point distributor sends fire from a correct coil
into 7mm high temperature plug wires; and at the sides of that intake, Hemi
Orange valve covers hang above correctly restored Exhaust manifolds. Cooling is supplied by a
restored Chrysler radiator which utilizes correct hoses and clamps sends
water past fresh V-belts and rebuilt engine accessories. And power is
provided by a correct Mopar red top battery which sends spark through a
correct Mopar voltage regulator.
Behind this Charger's killer big block is a rebuilt A727 TorqueFlite
3-speed automatic transmission which shifts smoothly and powers down the
road with ease. As with the body of the car, 'clean' is the name of the
game down below with glossy Curious Yellow basecoat/clearcoat floors
displays not so much as a spec of road dirt or chip of bare metal. Up
front, a good looking factory suspension has been fitted with new bushings
and a rebuilt steering box; and out back, a familiar 8.75 Sure Grip rear
end utilizes steep 3.55 gears to throw the power to the pavement with
authority. At the center of the car, a fresh mandrel bent aluminized Exhaust system sends spent gases into an
H-pipe crossover and sturdy dual chamber mufflers. And at the corners of
the car, rebuilt drum brakes provide quick and reliable stops. All this
Mopar goodness rolls on a traditional set of great looking 15 inch Rallye
wheels which spin fresh 245/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/A white letter tires.
Sit down inside this great looking Charger and you'll find an all original
Houndstooth interior which is accented with tasteful wood and stainless
trim. The vintage seat covers, fresh carpets and tight headliner display no
signs of obvious wear and tear, and the door panels and full length console
feature fresh and well-preserved wood appliques. That like-new carpet is
protected by color-keyed floor mats, and that original console houses a
correct T-handle shifter for the cars A727 transmission. In front of the
driver, the cars original dash holds original gauges above a correct
factory heater, a modern Sony CD player and a rare, optional Rim Blow
steering wheel. And behind the cockpit, a clean and freshly painted trunk
is authentically detailed with a new vinyl mat, a full size spare tire and
a correct decklid decal.
Cars like this concours restored '71 Charger are what make this hobby fun.
It combines a slew of trophy winning ingredients with a price that is
substantially lower than most freshly completed muscle cars and enough fire
power to humble even modern performance cars. Call, click or visit

1971 Dodge Challenger RT--D&M Motorsports Video Walk Around Review 2012 Chris Moran
1971 Dodge Challenger R/T video review with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M
The Challenger was described in a book about 1960s American cars as Dodge's
"answer to the Mustang and
Camaro." It was one
of two Chrysler E-body cars, the other being the slightly smaller Plymouth
Barracuda. "Both the Challenger and Barracuda were available in a
staggering number of trim and option levels" and were intended "to compete
against cars like the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, and to do it while offering
virtually every engine in Chrysler's inventory." However, they were "a
rather late response to the ponycar wave the Ford Mustang had started." In his book
Hemi Muscle Cars, Robert Genat wrote that the Challenger was conceived
in the late 1960s as Dodge's equivalent of the Plymouth Barracuda, and that
the Barracuda was designed to compete against the Mustang and Camaro. He added that Chrysler
intended the new Dodge as "the most potent ponycar ever," and positioned it
"to compete against the Mercury Cougar and Pontiac Firebird." Genat also
noted that the "Barracuda was intended to compete in the marketplace with
the Mustang and Camaro/Firebird, while the Dodge
was to be positioned against the Cougar" and other more luxury-type
The Challenger's longer wheelbase, larger dimensions and more luxurious
interior were prompted by the launch of the 1967 Mercury Cougar, likewise a
bigger, more luxurious and more expensive pony car aimed at affluent young
American buyers. The wheelbase, at 110 inches (2,794 mm), was two inches
longer than the Barracuda, and the Dodge differed substantially from the
Plymouth in its outer sheetmetal, much as the Cougar differed from the
shorter-wheelbase Ford Mustang. A/C and a rear window
defogger were optional.
Exterior design was done by Carl Cameron, who also did the exterior for the
1966 Dodge Charger. Cameron based the 1970 Challenger grille off an older
sketch of his 1966 Charger prototype that was to have a turbine engine. The
Charger never got the turbine, but the Challenger got that car's grille.
Although the Challenger was well-received by the public (with 76,935
produced for the 1970 model year), it was criticized by the press, and the
pony car segment was already declining by the time the Challenger arrived.
Sales fell dramatically after 1970, and though sales rose for the 1973
model year with over 27,800 cars being sold, Challenger production ceased
midway through the 1974 model year. 165,437 Challengers were sold over this
Four hardtop models were offered: Challenger Six, Challenger V8, Challenger
T/A (1970 only), and Challenger R/T with a convertible version available
only in 1970 and 1971. Although there were no factory-built R/T Challenger
convertibles for 1971, the R/T continued as a model with the hardtop
body-style. The standard engine on the base model was the 225 cu in (3.7 L)
six-cylinder. The standard engine on the V8 was the 230 bhp (171.5 kW)318
cu in (5.2 L) V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor. Optional engines were the 340
cu in (5.6 L) and 383 cu in (6.3 L) V8s, all with a standard 3-speed manual
transmission, except for the 290 bhp (216.3 kW) 383 CID engine, which was
available only with the TorqueFlite automatic transmission. A 4-speed
manual was optional on all engines except the 225 CID I6 and the 2-barrel
383 CID V8.
1971 Dodge Challenger convertible
The performance model was the R/T (Road/Track), with a 383 CID Magnum V8,
rated at 335 bhp (249.8 kW); 300 bhp (223.7 kW) for 1971, due to a drop in
compression. The standard transmission was a 3-speed manual. Optional R/T
engines were the 375 bhp (279.6 kW) 440 cu in (7.2 L) Magnum, the 390 bhp
(290.8 kW) 440 CID Six-Pack and the 425 bhp (316.9 kW) 426 cu in (7.0 L)
Hemi. The R/T was available in either the hardtop or convertible. For 1970
only, base hardtop and R/T hardtop models could be ordered with the more
luxurious SE specification, which included leather seats, a vinyl roof, a
smaller 'formal' rear window, and an overhead interior console that
contained three warning lights (door ajar, low fuel, and seatbelts).
The Challenger R/T came with a Rallye instrument cluster that included a
150 mph (240 km/h) speedometer, an 8,000 rpm tachometer, 1972--1974
tachometer went to 7,000 rpm and an oil pressure gauge. In 1973, the R/T
badging was dropped and these models were called "Rallye", although they
were never badged as such. The shaker hood scoop was not available after
Dodge Hellcat-Viper-Hellcat Thrash Battle! - Roadkill Ep. 38
Roadkill is now powered by Dodge! To kick off the sponsorship, Finnegan and
Freiburger called for some brand new 2015 supercars: the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger
SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat, plus a 645-horsepower Dodge Viper GT.
Why? For an epic thrash, of course! This video has more tire smoke than
you've ever seen from these cars, plus a big, irresponsible surprise at a
motocross track. There are guest spots from Carlos Lago from Motor Trend,
Fred Williams from Dirt Every Day, and pro drifter Tony Angelo. None of
these guys should have been handed the keys. And by the way, we used the
Hellcat red keys the whole time.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

2008 Dodge Charger R/T R&T with Flowmaster American Thunder
This is my 2008 Dodge Charger R/T equipped with the Road & Track Package.
Testing a newly installed Flowmaster American Thunder cat-back Exhaust system ( part number 817480 ). Stainless
steel, mandrel bends, no resonators, Super 40 mufflers, 4'' tips. This
system is loud and will give you a fair amount of drone... and thumbs up.
