LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T Hemi 

 In 1971, designers made subtle styling changes to the Dodge Challenger, providing new treatments to the taillamps and grille. The single-taillamp design from 1970 became two distinct lights for 1971, and a new-for-1971 twin-inlet Challenger grille was painted silver on standard models and black on R/Ts. Challenger R/T models also received a set of fiberglass quarter-panel louvers. An additional coupe model with fixed quarter windows was added to the lineup. R/T models included high back bucket seats, heavy duty brakes, an R/T handling package, and G70x14 raised white letter tires. With a base price of $3,273, the Hemi option added a staggering $892 to the bottom line, ultimately leading to only 70 Hemi cars being produced making them quite desirable to today’s collectors.

 This ultra-rare Hemi Challenger was produced on October 21st,1970 at the Hamtramck, Michigan assembly plant. This menacing Mopar came factory painted in the desirable FE5 Bright Red complemented by a X9 Black interior and Black vinyl roof. Setting it apart from the others is the factory ordered “R” code 426ci Hemi engine. Of which only 70 Challengers total, came factory equipped with this power plant. Among those 70 units produced, only 12 came backed by the A727 Torqueflite automatic transmission. Other options include Sport Hood, Light Package, Power Disc Brakes, Power Steering, Woodgrain Console, Am Radio, A01 Light Package and A62 Instrument Cluster. 

 Due to the extreme rarity of this Hemi Challenger, it warranted a full concours rotisserie cost is no object restoration back to the factory new. The body was stripped to bare metal and then block sanded and prepped for paint just great attention to detail. Once the paint was applied, it was then wet sanded and polished to a show quality luster. All the chrome was re-plated and stainless trim polished. Undercarriage is exactly how it left the assembly line finished in factory correct primer with body color overspray and paint drips on the floor pans. All of the suspension components have been refinished with correct finishes, paint daubs, runs, drips and inspection markings as per factory production line. Engine bay has been painted body color and all the components refurbished in the correct finishes. Overall, the car is an absolute show quality example which has gone on to win Silver O.E. Certified at the Mopar Nationals. It required only minor upgrades to achieve the Gold status and that was done upon return from the Nationals. 

 The market has always  recognized Hemi E-bodies as the pinnacle of the era, with examples of these cars often outdistancing other brands in the genre. Further its collectibility, this Hemi Challenger comes fully documented with not just one, but three Broadcast sheets, Galen Govier fender tag decode and restoration pictures. With their styling and ultra low production numbers, 1971 model year is certainly the rarest and most coveted to collectors and enthusiasts alike.  With its provenance and spectacular conditioning, this is an outstanding opportunity to own a very rare and extremely sought after Mopar!
