Today's car is a 1971 "Mr Norm's" Hemi Challenger RT. JS23R1B108804 is 1 of only 71 Hemi Challenger RTs made for the U.S. market, and of those 1 of 59 with a 4-speed. It is finished in FE5 Bright Red with V6W white R/T stripes and a H6X9 black interior. This Challenger was originally equipped with the A34 Super Track Pack 4:10 geared Dana Axle Package, A45 Aero (front and rear spoilers) Package, B51 Power Disc Brakes and a N96 Shaker hood.
Apparently having a Hemi Challenger RT with 4-speed and a 4:10 rearend wasn't enough for the original owner Charles Starr, Charles wanted a "super" Challenger, so he had Mr Norm's do some performance modifications before accepting delivery of the car. He had Mr Norm's install a high-rise intake, headers, toss the Shaker hood and replace it with a lift off "Six-Pack" hood (hard to believe, but true!) and perform a "Stage III" dyno-tune.
Ironically, after having Mr Norm's create the "super" Challenger for him, Mr Starr kept it for only a year and 5,200 miles before selling it to a friend. The friend for some reason decided not to sell it, but to place it into long-term storage. Before doing so, he had the foresight to spray the car down with a coat of WD-40 before sealing it away in a storage container for what turned out to be 35 years! In 2006 the car emerged from storage and after a gentle clean-up, and thanks to the coat of WD-40, needed only new tires, RT stripes and a tune-up for it to return to it's glorious former self. Check it out, that frontal view makes it out to be one "super" bad looking Challenger!
