1971 Dodge Challenger
« on: August 07, 2019 - 11:16:54 pm »
Mopar Beauty and Brawn.  For sale is a stunning 1971 Dodge Challenger w/440 cu. in, 4bbl with 4-speed transmission PS, PB and front disc brakes.  Beautiful and uncommon Light Gunmetal (A4) exterior color with black vinyl top, black striping and black interior.  Vinyl seats are excellent and console/headliner/carpet and dash/w standard gauges are all in great shape.  All gauges, switches, lights, etc are in working condition.  Steering is handled with a wood-grain steering wheel.  This is a southwest desert car (New Mexico) with no rust that has undergone a complete restoration.  The body was stripped down to bare metal during restoration, panels are straight and the repainted in the original A4 color that is in great condition.  This car has won many local car shows and is serious eye candy.
As a true muscle car, the rebuilt 440 is 0.03 overbore and packed with high quality parts including: Comp Cam hydraulic roller system w/Comp Xtreme energy roller camshaft 0.541/0.537, Ross 10:1 forged aluminum pistons, Eagle H-beam forged steel rods, Eagle forged steel crankshaft (3.750 stroke), 440 Source Stealth aluminum heads, Mopar Performance aluminum high-rise dual plane intake manifold, Edelbrock 800 cfm 4bbl carb, TTi 2.5 ceramic coated headers and Flowmaster 50 mufflers. This setup has incredible torque and power that will peel the rubber off the wheels if you want!  The sound of the engine is a wonderful deep tone that is powerful, but not horribly loud with the Flowmaster 50s.  An aluminum, 4-core radiator keeps this beast cool.  ALL wiring was replaced during restoration as well as the Mopar Performance electronic ignition w/Mancini Racing Firecore distributor.  This engine creates tons of torque and horsepower and has no leaks.  Never dynoed, but suspect its approaching 500 hp.  Currently only 1,100 miles on this engine!

The engine is backed up by a Passon Performance A-833 4-spd manual transmission with custom wood Hurst Pistol-Grip shifter that is connected to a McLoed Racing 11 super street pro clutch with Haynes Performance SFI steel flywheel.  The rear is an 8-3/4 Sure grip differential, 3.55 ratio with 15 rims and BF Goodrich Radial T/As P245/60R15 tires.

Other goodies include rebuilt steering column, new heater core, new gas tank, in-dash electronic oil gauge with a secondary hydraulic oil gauge and tach on console, TA-style spoilers front/back, Cometic head gaskets, all locks keyed-alike, Edelbrock shocks front/KYBs in rear, R/T hood and leaf springs.  There is a modern AM/FM/CD player that is never used because I prefer listening to the music of that 440 during driving.  Clear title.  Garage kept and very well cared for since restoration.  Car is very reliable and is a pure muscle car rush to drive.

This car is not a pedigreed original.  It was born as a 318 automatic w/AC.  Fender tag was missing at the time of purchase, no build sheet found.  AC is no longer on the car.  Minor issue for full disclosure: one chip in paint on driver rear quarter panel under the rear spoiler, door vinyl is beginning to peel, passenger side rear window does not roll down all the way, heater fan on low speed is weak, high speed is fine.
