Affordability usually doesn't come with desirability, but this 1971 Dodge Challenger comes in original High Impact color and has now been upgraded to a performance-built 440 big block. So you already know you'd expect to pay a ton more, even before you dig into some cool details.
FC7 just a small code, but it makes Mopar people quite happy. Having it on the fender tag of this Challenger, means that it's wearing its correct Plum Crazy color. This was resprayed later in life, and they paid for quality. So it still has a nice gloss and shine. And what helps make this High Impact truly make an impact is the way the panels fit and the brightwork shines to give this a total quality presentation. And while you already know there's a big block upgrade in the engine bay, this one does a terrific job of announcing its aggressive side to everyone else with features like the Rallye-style hood with dual vents and the white T/A-style stripes.
Not only do those exterior stripes highlight the sporty rear fenders, but they also go nicely with the white interior. The high-back bucket seats have a great button-top factory pattern. The headliner and door panels are finished in the same white, and they all have the bright look of quality. But thankfully the carpeting is black, so you never have to worry about dusty shoes before hopping in on a whim and going for a drive. And that's exactly what this Challenger was made to do. The dual-spoke sports steering wheel gives you a clear view of the white-face gauge package. The upgraded carbon fiber appearance surrounding the gauges coordinates nicely with the pistol grip shift handle in the center console. And just ahead of that is an auxiliary gauge trio and large SunPro Super Tach with shift light.
When you look in the engine bay, you'll be happy to know that the hood callouts weren't lying. This is powered by the almighty Magnum 440 cubic-inch V8. More than just having the famous performance big block, this one is enhanced with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock intake. More than just look great in the tidy engine bay, this is supported by the right components like the MSD coil, steel braded hoses, and an Optima red top battery. And because the long tube headers add power as well as contribute to the thunder of the dual exhaust, this screamer of a motor can be used to intimidate the rest of the muscle car crowd. Plus, Mopar's Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission was built stout enough to handle this power. Add in power steering, a thick front sway bar, BF Goodrich T/As, and front disc brakes, and this is the ideal muscle machine cruiser.
When you can find a muscle car that's rare, fast, and so well presented as this one, you know you have to act fast to take it home. Call today!!!
