Description

PERIOD RESTO, SUPER BEE 383 BIG BLOCK, AUTO, SUREGRIP, PWR FRNT DISC/STEER, R134

Chrysler B-bodies continue to be red-hot collectables, and this 1971 Challenger 500 is a very cool piece of muscle that will get respect everywhere it goes. What else do you need besides that great shape, some bright white paint, and a Go-Wing out back? Well, how about a big block V8 engine, a beautiful original interior, and, of course, a relatively reasonable price tag compared to a pedigree car.

Mopars were still the kings of the street in 1971 and while the rest of the industry was busy getting ready for new emissions rules, the guys at Dodge went against the crowd and continued building legitimate V8-powered muscle. This Challenger certainly looks the part, with bright white paint and correct reproduction stripes that were the perfect early-70s accent. Finding one of these that hasn't been eaten by the dreaded tin worm is getting tougher all the time, so they made sure they did it justice by getting excellent panel gaps and flat surfaces that reflect distortion-free images. They also added a correct "Ramcharger" hood with functional Air Grabber scoop, a satin black Go-Wing on the deck lid, and a full set of satin black decals. Add in a set of Thrush side pipes, a chin spoiler, and a body-colored grille, and this is a car that will definitely get some attention at the local cruise night. There's also a black vinyl top that fits well and really works well with the swoopy fuselage styling, and there's no sign of problems underneath.

A mostly original black interior tells you all you need to know about the level of preservation in this car. It's all in excellent shape, including the seats, which were re-covered not too long ago. The rest appears original. A factory Tuff Wheel looks cool framing the gauges, all of which are clear and brightly marked, including a factory tach. It's as beautifully finished inside as it is outside, and the preservation shows everywhere you look, from the discreet T-handle shifter to the woodgrained appliques on the dash and console that are still in good condition. It's got factory A/C, which is backed by modern hardware behind the scenes, and there's a period-correct FM/8-track head unit under the dash. The trunk has been outfitted with a correct mat and there's a surprising amount of room back there.

This car was born with a 383, so that's what's in there today, although the block itself was borrowed from a 1970 Super Bee. In the interest of performance, there are a few upgrades like a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, but they didn't get too radical. Correct decals, a functional ram air assembly, factory exhaust manifolds, and a big radiator up front complete the list of desirable features. There's also a set of gold valve covers that are period Moroso units. The chassis is tidy, with clean floors, satin black hardware, and that cool side-exit exhaust system. A TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission feeds an 8.75-inch rear end full of 3.55 gears and a Sure Grip limited slip, so it's punchy but not obnoxious on the road. And if you like the period look, dig those vintage Super Stock tires on American Racing Western wheels (you should probably replace them if you're going to do a lot of driving, however).

Unusual, fast, and surprisingly affordable, this is the Mopar muscle car of tomorrow. Get in today while they're still under the radar. Call now!
