Episode IV - A New Hope; Rebuilding a Challenger
Pictures and a short video of two destroyed Mopars (a 1969 Charger and a
1970 Challenger) and the rebuilding of a 1971 Dodge Challenger. A lot of
problems and set backs along the way, but once the car was finished, it
was worth every second of the 15 year adventure.

Showcasing the best attributes of a slick, frame-off restoration, this
badass Mopar features a slew of handpicked, top-shelf parts which create a
classic that can be shown AND driven with the best muscle cars on the road.
Take one glance at this Challengers wet-look Plum Crazy Purple exterior and
it's obvious that the cars top-notch restoration was both thorough and
expensive. Naturally, a pristine Dodge like this can back up as much Mopar
attitude as its owner cares to provide; and this Challengers traditional
Trans Am hardware transforms it into a highly appealing, purpose built
muscle car which conveys a sense of power and precision.
Fitting snug and looking sharp in this cars Plum Crazy Purple engine bay is
a Dyno tuned 528 cubic
inch Indy Cylinder Heads Street Legend Hemi that produces a 10.25 to 1
compression ratio and 650 horsepower straight out of
the box. The fully worked 528 Street Legend package comes with an 850cfm
Mighty Demon carburetor, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, MSD Super Conductor
wires, Indy 426 cast iron heads, an Indy 426 intake, an MP 4340 crank,
Eagle H-beam rods, Wiseco pistons, a Comp hydraulic cam, Comp hydraulic
lifters and a Milodon oil pan. But wait, there's more; at the top of the
purple engine, a K&N air filter sits above braided fuel lines for the Demon
carburetor and pre-requisite Indy valve covers. At the sides of the engine,
custom fabricated and ceramic coated long tube headers hide under a
polished SSBC master cylinder and hoses for the cars Vintage Air climate
control system. And at the front of the engine a March serpentine system
spins billet pulleys and a chrome alternator below fresh hoses and a new
belt. Turn the switch and an Optima gel cell battery sparks an MSD Blaster
2 coil and MSD 6AL ignition to spring the engine to life; and a Be Cool
aluminum radiator utilizes two Spal electric fans to keep everything cool
and in check.
Behind the engine a modern Tremec TKO500 5-speed transmission sends power
to a narrowed Moser 8.74 rear end that's been detailed in fresh coat of
gloss black paint. At the sides of that transmission, a large diameter true
dual Exhaust system sends spent gases
through an H-pipe to Flowmaster dual chamber mufflers which give the big
Hemi a super aggressive bark to match its lethal bite. At the front of the
car, an upgraded torsion bar suspension includes adjustable upper control
arms and adjustable strut rods, and at the corners of the car, fresh QA1
shocks sit behind an SSBC four wheel disc brake system which includes
slotted rotors and bright red calipers. Slow speed turns are a cinch thanks
to power rack and pinion steering, handling is greatly enhanced by
aftermarket sub frame connectors, and an aluminum fuel tank with an
internal pump feeds the big engine an uninterrupted stream of fuel. All
this great hardware rides on a set of 17 inch polished aluminum Centerline
wheels which wear sticky 235/45 front and 255/50 rear BF Goodrich radials.
Inside the car, you'll find a great looking black interior that, like the
drivetrain and exterior, takes the best elements of a traditional muscle
car and fuses them with awesome new technology. The driver and passenger
sit on custom leather bucket seats that look good and feel great; and a
chrome TKO pistol grip shifter sits on a traditional Challenger console
that's complete with a custom purple inlay. In front of the driver, a
straight and simple black dash features an assortment of silver faced
Autometer Pro Comp Ultra Lite gauges which, along with a traditional
3-spoke Challenger steering wheel, have been fully detailed in Plum Crazy
Purple. Below those gauges, a modern Alpine CD player sends tunes to custom
kick panels and a custom package tray which hold an assortment of excellent
sounding Audison speakers. Below those Audison speakers, the car's trunk is
filled with a completely custom sound system which includes two Rockford
Fosgate amps and two giant Rockford Fosgate subwoofers.
Big block power, a modern 5-speed transmission and a tailored interior that
is purpose-built for driving? Life just doesn't get any better than that.

Building A 440 Six Pack [S2 Ep.5-3]
When it comes to classic hot-rod components, nothing gets people going like
a multi-carb setup. And the king amount these is the Tri-power. Long
admired for their stellar performance and macho attitude, the tri-power has
become a hard thing to find. So why find one? Why not build your own? Today
on GEARZ, Stacey walks you through the process of building your own
tri-power out of old derelict parts. After that, Stacey pulls out the big
Mopar guns and shows what it takes to put together a six-pack. If
multi-carbs are your deal... you?re gonna love this show! Then Stacey gets
down and dirty and shows you how to build some simple, ultra strong axle
dollys by using some old scrap metal like the kind laying around YOUR
garage. Who said gearheads aren't into recycling?

Car culture starts where the assembly line ends. With only 71 Hemi
Challengers assembled for the 1971 model year, enthusiasts took to creating
their own versions like this awesome example. Fresh out of a frame up
restoration that restored the car to its original interior and exterior
colors, a host of upgrades make this one of the most fun Challengers to
drive and own. Ready for Hemi power? Your chariot has arrived.
While there's no doubt that Top Banana Yellow or Plum Crazy Purple suit
these cars well, there is something about GA4 Light Gunmetal Metallic that
completely transforms the personality of the car. The coat on this car has
a perfect blend of gray and blue, offering the E-body a sophisticated look
that brighter Chrysler Corporation offerings simply couldn't. The paintwork
is first rate and looks great from every angle, with accurate reflections
With no stripes, all accent work is left to the trim. Up top, a new black
vinyl top does a great job adding some contrast while chrome door handles
and chrome sport mirrors add some visual flare to the crisp body lines. An
R/T-exclusive hood rest above a stock 71-exclusive split grille while the
rear also remains in factory dress.
Between the fenders, a 426 Hemi crate engine utilizes forged aluminum
pistons, a hydraulic cam, a Holley four-barrel carb, a dual plane aluminum
intake and cast iron heads to crank out 465hp and 485lb-ft of torque. At
the front of the bay, an alternator, power steering pump and fan spin off
engine power while an aftermarket radiator keeps things cool. Factory
pieces such as a correct voltage regulator, windshield wiper motor and
wrinkled finish valve covers add some authenticity to the package.
Underneath the car, solid black floorpans and fresh hardware provide the
backdrop for an A727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission which
transfers power out to the Dana 60 differential. The suspension has been
left in its original configuration with torsion bars up front and leaf
springs out back but power steering and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes make
pushing that setup a lot more fun. At the corners, 17" Chip Foose wheels
wrapped in meaty tires complete the look.
Open the doors and a fully restored H6X9 black vinyl interior offers all
the amenities needed. Features include bucket seats, a center console, an
AM radio and a rally instrument cluster with a tachometer, electric clock
and 150mph speedometer. The interior presents and new as does the fully
restored trunk complete with a full size spare and appropriate mat.
Fully sorted and ready to cruise, this '71 Challenger is a refreshing break
from its High Impact siblings. With Hemi power, a modernized driving
experience and a classic look, you'll thank yourself with every walk to the
garage. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for more details

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
