This is my pride and joy. The last year of the 426 hemi. I am the second owner and, as the movie will embarrassingly show, I treat this car like a cupcake. It is grandma's hemi with column shift 727. I asked why the original owner ordered it with that and he said, "just to save money." The car cost about 5,000 with about 1,000 of that the engine and "required" options. It is absolutely stock and now even has 14 x 6 black wheels on it. Only 47,000 miles on this beauty and you can see more of it at http://www.marlia.com.
Here is a video of the engine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tl2e1NIcBFs and yes, the car weighs around 4,100 pounds.

426 hemi start and listen to hemi idle on 1971 Charger R/T
In 1971, Mopar decided to put a manual choke on the last year of the street
hemi and this Charger R/T came with it. Sparing no expense, they used an
old vent cable, turned it upside down, and put a red choke sticker on it.
It is nestled under the dash with the airgrabber switch. This video is
just a boring one of the start up of an absolutely cold engine, its warmup,
idle and shut down. Enjoy and leave a comment. Check it out at
