1971 DODGE CHARGER R/T 440 SIX PACK, Gunmetal Gray
For the 1971 model year, the Dodge and Plymouth B-body lineup was slated for a complete refresh. An all new, sleeker style body was penned for the updated lineup. While the new design appeared to some to be larger than the previous B-Body cars from 68-70, the updated cars were actually smaller overall. Luckily for buyers, the new platform cars were still able to accept the entire lineup of engines, from the utilitarian slant six all the way up to the elephantine 426 Hemi. They looked leaner, meaner, and more modern, utilizing aerodynamic touches to aid them moving through the air. This particular 1971 Dodge Charger R/T finished in stunning Gunmetal Gray with Black and Silver two-tone interior is one of the best driven examples known to exist. She is 100% numbers-matching and correct, retains her original sheet metal, and is completely rotisserie restored. Provenance includes extensive owner history and original paperwork including original broadcast sheet. The powerful 440 engine, with SIX PACK carburetor package, sends 385 horsepower through an automatic transmission. Also included was the Air Grabber hood, with a scoop that would pop up at the flip of a switch, allowing for increased fresh, colder air to enter the engine, resulting in increased power. But the car's order sheet requested stripe delete with no vinyl top, and an interior perfectly complements the Gunmetal Gray finish. One of Tim Wellborn's favorite color combinations, this car was also the favorite pick of all those attending the 40th Anniversary 1971 B-Body Reunion held at the Wellborn Musclecar Museum. FACTS: • 1971 Dodge Charger R/T 440-6 • Stunning Gunmetal Grey over Silver and Black interior • 440c.i. 385hp /490 lb-ft SIX PACK engine • Air Grabber hood scoop • Ordered with deleted popular options • Favorite Pick at the 40th Anniversary 1971 B-Body Reunion





134926 / 1983 Dodge Shelby Charger
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/mahqh37 By 1983, the Belvedere-built Charger had become an established player in America's re-invigorated compact car market. Eccentric gearheads knew if you wanted to look cool, you bought an L-Body. And if you wanted to look cool and go fast, you bought a Shelby L-Body. Averaging just over 430 miles per year, this pint-size MoPar appears to have rarely seen anything other than sunshine and warm summer days. A quick check of the car's undercarriage and suspension reveals no evidence of catastrophic rust or abuse. A quick check of the car's profile reveals its body has never seen any major repairs. And a quick check of our pictures confirms its original Santa Fe and Radiant Silver skin is both bright and glossy. That's right, even 31 years after it rolled out of the showroom this spry sports coupe is still a true head turner everywhere it goes! In their effort to improve the Charger, Shelby and Chrysler did not overlook the car's mechanicals. They tweaked the engine, milling the block 0.030 inches to raise compression to 9.6 to 1. They changed the camshaft timing by advancing the cam a few degrees. They also made modifications to the 2.2 liter's electronic controls to extract optimum performance. Consequently, the Shelby powerplant develops 13 more horsepower and 10 more lb./ft. of torque than the standard Omni mill. These enhancements, plus a lower final drive ratio, make the car a tick quicker than the standard Charger and its early '80s competition. Specifically, the Shelby has a 0 to 60 time of 10 seconds flat and a 117MPH top speed. Shelby Chargers came standard with an A525 5-speed that feeds the front wheels. Holding that tossable drivetrain off the ground is an original Special Sports Suspension that utilizes shorter springs, stiffer shocks and correct power front disc and rear drum brakes to both lower the car and improve already responsive handling. And, at the corners of that chassis, original 'pizza' wheels spin original 195/50R15 Goodyear Eagle GTs around locking lug nuts. This coupe's tri-tone cockpit, which nicely complements its 2-tone exterior, shows hardly any signs of wear. The reclining seats keep you as comfortable for quick blasts of speed as they do during long road trips. In front of the driver, a pliable dash, which shows zero defects, is packed full of gauges that work exactly as they should. And, below that dash, crack-free consoles prop a black shifter on gray carpet that's protected by carpeted and color-keyed floor mats. If you're an enthusiast who likes to put their hardware on the road, few classics deliver this blend of exclusivity and practicality.

1984 DODGE SHELBY CHARGER -- ANOTHER RARE SHELBY CREATION
For 1983, Carroll Shelby modified the Dodge Charger, to be sold at Dodge dealers as the Dodge Shelby Charger. Rather than focusing on speed, Shelby modified the suspension and styling. The engine compression was raised for 107 hp, and the manual transmission had revised ratios. Shorter springs, special wheels, and tires complemented stronger brakes and quicker steering. Outside, a new nose and racing stripes accented the performance image. The body kits, among other parts, were often shipped to dealerships along with the car to be put on after delivery. The reasoning behind this varied, but was said to speed delivery and compensate for ground clearance issues that the cars faced on many car carriers. Production was 8,251 for that first year. For 1984, the Shelby Charger could be ordered with an optional automatic transmission. There were 7,552 Shelby Chargers sold this model year. The high-output engine, now up to 110 hp was also available in baseline Chargers and Turismos. The MPFI/turbocharged turbo I engine, commonly known as a 'T1' was added for Dodge's 1985 Shelby Charger. This engine produced 146 hp and was changed from its first appearance in the Dodge Daytona turbo during the previous year. A Garrett AiResearch T3 turbocharger and Chrysler/Bosch multiple-point fuel injection enabled the 2.2 L engine to produce the additional horsepower. A total of 7,709 Shelby Chargers were made for the 1985 model year, and 7,669 in 1986. 1987 was the final year, with just 1,011 produced. How many of these Shelby creations exist today? Most likely just several hundred of all the years these were made. Always a pleasure to see a rare car especially in this condition. Thanks very much for viewing this rare 1984 Dodge Shelby Charger.
