LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T.
The sun was beginning to set on the American muscle car in 1971. The previous decade had seen the muscle car rise, climax, and then its rapid aging into the less desirable creations of the 1970s. In 1970, Dodge had been the final company to release a completely new model for this market, even as new cars like Ford’s Maverick and Plymouth’s Duster showed where things were heading. Thus, the E-body Challenger R/T made quite a name for itself during a mere two-year period through production.
This 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T was produced at the Hamtramck, Michigan Assembly Plant on March 15, 1971. It was factory ordered with a 383 engine, automatic transmission, Hi Impact Hemi Orange exterior, power brakes, console with woodgrain panel, black vinyl bucket seats, dual racing mirrors, sport hood, rear spoiler, dual exhaust with chrome tips, and longitudinal black stripes. This Challenger has been treated to a rotisserie restoration that has it looking and performing better than new. It’s Hemi Orange exterior has been wet sanded and polished, shines like new and its interior is in wonderfully restored condition. The engine has been upgraded to a 440 Six Pack as well as being upgraded with a 4-speed pistol grip manual transmission. It’s excellent appearance, drivability and performance ensures that this Challenger will be the biggest hit at the Sunday afternoon car show.
The massive desirability and iconic look of the E-body Challenger makes owning this 1971 Challenger R/T an opportunity not to pass up. The drivability of this Mopar is astonishing and ensures that it will be loved by the next caretaker for many years to come.
