1971 Challenger convertible
« on: December 31, 2016 - 10:07:21 AM »
Hi Everyone
I have been out of the e body projects for myself for a while but recently found the convertible I've been looking for.
A 71 340 auto car .
I cant seem to find any good production numbers for this car.
Anyone one have break down of how many with 340 convertible, and auto?
Car is b5 blue, white interior, auto, fast ratio steering.
Thanks
Dave

Can't answer your questions but it's good to see you back. I still have a picture of your car as one of many screen saver pictures! Love your car, do you still have it?  :wave:

As far as I know, there are no separate production figures available for 71 Challenger convertibles. :2cents:

There is a Total 71 Challenger convertible production number of 2165 but no break down beyond that for 340 cars... If it were an N code car then there are breakdowns for 4 spd & auto...

Here's a couple pictures of my new ride. Needs some mechanical repair  to drive. Should be good to go for the summer. Next winter I'll do a repaint.

B5 blue and white is an awesome combo. Good luck with it!

 :2thumbs:very nice looking car. I am still shocked that so few 71' Cudas were built compared to 71' Challengers.
The white interior is perfect with the blue also.

In 71 Cuda's in general didn't sell well, Lot of folks didn't care for the changes compared to the 70.....

Isn't that the truth....A 71 Cuda convertible with the same options would be a six figure car, even more with a four speed yet a Challenger like this can easily be had for under $50K

Worked with the car a little yesterday and found someone had glued two sets of carpet over the original set. That's a lot of carpet!
Anyone know what a set of hood periphery molding cost these days? Would think it would brighten up the front on this car
