1971 Dodge Challenger Convertible
One of only 1774 Produced
We have searched for a classic Challenger Convertible for quite some time. They dont come around too often yet we finally found one. This ’71 Challenger Convertible is fully restored and absolutely beautiful. An amazing fact about this car is in the restoration which dates back to 1985. You really need to see it to believe it. It is in immaculate condition throughout still today. The paint, trim and chrome shine like glass. The factory color was green but since ’85, stands in Chryslers Bright Red (E5). If you need to find a flaw, it is in the one small paint bubble behind the drivers side door at the very bottom. It has been there since 1989 and hasnt changed. It is shown in the photos. Other than that, the panels are straight and smooth with no bondo or rust anywhere. Pinstriping was added recently.
The engine is a non-matching 340ci 4barrel from a 1972 Challenger replacing its original 318. It is as nicely detailed as we have ever seen. It starts runs and drives perfectly. Yes, perfectly! It is quiet at all speeds with no rattling or squeeks at all. She is equipped with a 904 Torqueflite automatic transmission (Slapstick) coupled to a 8-3/4 Sure-Grip with a 3.23 rear differential and dual exhaust. The entire front end is new including new front disc brakes and master cylinder, modular upper control arms and front sway bars. Response to the pedal is immediate and impressive. Mileage reads 37120 which we can not verify as accurate but it must be close based on the condition of this car. Come see for yourself. Wheels are Rocket Igniters Old School look on Cooper Cobra radials, P235/60/R15s in front and P255/60/R15s in the rear.
The interior is all new as of late 2014 and literally perfect. All gauges are as clean and clear as new all work properly. The factory buckets were refinished to like-new condition. Features include power steering, power brakes, Rallye chrome side view mirrors with left side remote. The AM radio works and has been fully updated for Iphone, Auxillary and Bluetooth features. The convertible top is in excellent condition and looks original. It goes up & down easily and quietly, and, is in excellent working order. The rear window is made of glass, not plastic. There is a boot but wasnt not available at the time these photos were taken. The factory wood wheel is as good as it was on day one.
The undercarriage is highly detailed and looks incredible. The factory trim tag shows this to be a nicely optioned car. A close look & a test drive is all you will need to want this car in your garage. Very reasonably priced for what what we have here. Dont wait! Come on in or call us at 516-586-6536.
