Challenger 1971

Title Status --
Exterior Color Sublime green
Interior Color Black


The custom muscle car that you always wished you had the time to build is now up for grabs. This 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 426 Hemi Tribute has a bold and coordinated presence, a sharply restored A/C interior, and a 460+ hp Hemi V8 under the hood. Oh yes, your dream Mopar is turn-key ready right now.

The desirability of this one starts with the paint. This is a stunning application of Mopar's famous High Impact shade of Sublime. This electric green is an instant eye catcher that naturally pulls people in to take a closer look at this fresh and complete build. The neon-like color is also the perfect backdrop for the aggressive black accents. The dark contrast is used to highlight sporty elements like the full-length R/T stripe, fender vent trim, blacked-out tail panel, and full-width rear spoiler. And of course, the black also funnels all of your attention to the two power scoops on the R/T hood. The darkness is even used to integrate upgrades like the 18-inch wheels. And while onlookers will love the coordinated package, you can also take pride in the overall quality that's seen in the details. The straightness of the sheetmetal, clean/clear glass, pliable weather-stripping, and mirror-like shine of trim and bumpers all are the hallmarks of a thoughtful build.

All the black accents on the exterior get you ready for the full midnight package inside. Mopar's high-back bucket seats were some of the best of the era, and so these pristinely restored examples remain desirable for comfort today. The door panels, dash, carpeting, headliner, and all other fundamentals have a dark and fresh style, too. It's all well done, right down to the working dome light. You also get the best Challenger features, like the Tuff sports steering wheel, driver-oriented center console, and pistol-grip shifter. This really goes for a vintage Mopar style, right down to the AM radio that's still there for display. But there are also the right upgrades you really want. You feel it in the air conditioning that's blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. And you see it with the upgraded to the crisp and clear AutoMeter Sport-Comp gauges.

You're going to love lifting the hood at car shows to showcase the big V8 with the bold Hemi callouts on the air topper. And while this has the look of a polished classic powerhouse, it's really a newer performance build. It starts with a Gen III 426 cubic-inch Hemi with cast iron block and cross-bolted mains. It's fortified and enhanced with a 495/480 hydraulic cam, heavy-duty single valve springs w/dampers, double roller timing chain, Mopar Performance M1 dual plane intake, forged pistons with 9:1 compression, and more. It inhales deeply with a Holley 750 double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added power from long tube headers. This also has the best in supporting pieces, like an MSD ignition, new wiring harness, serpentine belts, CVF pulleys, upgraded brackets, an Optima red top battery, and Champion aluminum radiator w/large electric fan. The full package is said to make 465 horsepower, and the growl of the Flowmaster dual exhaust let's everyone know you have superior power. The big muscle motor is connected to a strong TCI Super StreetFighter 727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission. This feeds a Dana 60 4.10 rear end with Moser axles. The suspension looks just as fresh as the rest of this coupe, and so you have a confident feeling out on the road. Plus, it has the best driving features, like power steering, sway bar front & rear, four-wheel power disc brakes w/drilled & slotted rotors, and the modern grip of ZR-rated tires.

The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet and plenty of restoration photos so you can see this Mopar's full transformation. It's time to make your dream car a reality, call today!
