EXC RESTO, 440 V8, 727 AUTO, CONVERTED FAC. A/C, PWR FRNT DISCS/STEER, GR8 QUAL!
Mopar fans this is what you love. It's a 1971 Dodge Charger R/T that's fresh off a full high end restoration only a few months ago. The whole car was brought back to factory specs, including 440 V8 and even A/C. Also, now the paint is a shining tribute (literally) to one of the rarest shades ever applied to metal.
Long, lean, and truly its own car, the 1971 Charger has one of the meanest and most distinct lines to come out of Detroit. It only gets better on this meticulously restored vehicle. You can see Charger DNA running through this car's veins in the hidden headlights, chrome bumper surround, and even the insignia on the hubcaps. Plus, that long, louvered hood was designed to hold the biggest engines in the Chrysler arsenal. The finish is one of the boldest you'll ever see. All you need are your two hands to count the total number of '71 Chargers that came in Curious Yellow, so having an expertly painted car like this is an opportunity to be just as bright and in a rare class. To standout against this neon-like color, the sports stripe package, hood & side slats, new vinyl top, and rear spoiler are all in a matte black, and boy does that make it look amazing. They look like they're out to consume the light that the paint is radiating – a very cool complement. All of it would not look this good unless there was serious time and money invested in the restoration, because after all, even Mopar fans knew the factory couldn't get 'em this straight.
The black interior was equally well restored, with the cool pattern on the vinyl bucket seats looking as fresh as the day this one left Lynch Road. Exceptional carpets and door panels continue this factory fresh look. Plus, the wood paneling on the center console and dash add some nice contrast while looking as good as new. The full Rallye gauge pack offers a fairly complete view of the engine, and the markings are still bright and crisp. Adding some more luxury to this driver-oriented setup is a period-correct AM/FM radio and the factory climate controls pumps out modern R134a air conditioning.
Under the hood is a 1971-correct 440 cubic-inch Magnum V8. This motor represents the last stand in the muscle car wars, as the next year would give more realistic net ratings and lower compression. So with a powerplant this significant, the big V8 was fully rebuilt during the restoration to look its best and sound the fiercest. The Magnum fires up with confidence, and you already know this four-barrel big block is a street-eating machine. But it's also quite reliable, too, thanks to the Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic that was rebuilt at the same time as the motor. And no matter if you're on your way to the car show or just a Sunday drive, the power steering and front disc brakes are always a great feature to have. But don't just read about these components; take some time to go over the undercarriage shots. The level of detail that this Charger received during restoration, even in an area where hardly anyone ever sees, tells you about the investment in this car.
Chargers are often a labor of love, and all the signs are present here on this amazing Mopar. It's the perfect rare coupe for those who enjoy driving to the car shows and taking home all the awards. You're not the only one who has fallen in love with this one, so call today!
