This 1971 Dodge Challenger has an awesome single-year color, plenty of V8 power, four-on-the-floor, and a full custom leather interior featuring a $9k stereo system. So it's the kind of Mopar that fulfills you bold muscle car wishes while also making sure it's both comfortable and unique.
Let's start with the paint that's instantly grabbing your attention. It's Mopar's high-impact Citron Yella. This was only offered in 1971, and so this boldness always has a story to tell. Plus, it looks like it could glow in the dark thanks to an investment in a very high quality professional respray. To stand out against this neon-like color, the some of the sportiest elements had to contrast in black. This includes the full-width rear spoiler, rear window louvers, dual chin spoilers, and the lightweight fiberglass hood with menacing dual scoops. So this darkness looks like it's out to consume the light that the paint is radiating - a very cool touch. All of it would not look this good unless there was serious time and money invested in getting the paint smooth and the body so straight. It even has all the right muscle car details, like the hood pins, amber driving lights, rear fender vents, and a well-integrated quad-tip exhaust.
The interior is an awesome mix of vintage and new. Those long and smooth door panels are a true Challenger classic, and it even has the era-correct tri-star logo badging. But as you step in, you can see the low-back bucket seats have the kind of comfy bolstering that can only come from a modern adaption. These fresh seats are even finished in a supple leather. Plus, the center console retains the classic driver-oriented look, except now it goes further...literally. It extends in the front to give you cup holders, and it runs through the rear to give the back seats a true individual bucket seat experience. The result is one of the most well-integrated custom setups we've seen on a Mopar in quite some time. The stereo was even upgraded to a distinct and expensive Helix Bluetooth unit. And this German hifi even includes a custom speaker enclosure in the trunk. It's a $9k package that takes this classic muscle car and turns it into a modern sound hall experience. Then again, your favorite soundtrack may just be the from what's under the hood. The Mopar Tuff sports steering wheel, full Rallye instrument w/large tach, and iconic Hurst pistol-grip shifter are all signs this is a true driver's coupe.
Under this hood is Dodge's mighty 340 cubic-inch V8. Just like the exterior, the bold colors on the engine bay inner walls also help funnel your attention to the dark elements, like the air topper with callout and Mickey Thompson valve covers. This V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and headers add power while also giving this a sweet sound to the dual exhaust. This one fires up with gusto, and the four-speed manual transmission means you are in firm control of it all. And speaking of control, this one like to keep you in-tune with the road while also keeping things firm. That's why you have features like subframe connectors and power brakes w/discs up front.
This Challenger has been given all the right investments to be powerful, bold, and comfortable. It makes for one awesome muscle Mopar, that you know you can't let get away. Call today!!!
