Dodge Challenger R/T Magnum 383
Sublime 1971 Challenger, completely restored to new. Only 2,300 kilometers on the odometer since its renovation.
The engine is a 6.3 V8 that has been stroked in 7200, it doesn't develop 335hp anymore but more than 400hp. This model has been modified to run on unleaded gasoline.
Appraised as a veteran on 20.05.2020, with FIVA card.
There are no expenses to foresee on the vehicle, it is in excellent condition inside, outside but also mechanically. Its concours condition makes it incredibly rare.
Being part of one of the rare parts made in Switzerland, the Americans would even tear off to have it!
Chassis number: JS2 3N1 B17 5328 Year: 1971 Mileage: 2 300 Exterior color: Banana Yellow
In 1969, wishing to compete with the Mercury Cougar and the Pontiac Firebird, Carl Cameron, then in charge of Dodge styling in those years, took inspiration from the Charger, notably from a dead prototype from 1966, to design the Challenger. Production started in 1970, six years after the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, Pontiac Firebird and Plymouth Barracuda. Its success also began with its launch.
Based on the "E-body" platform of Chrysler (which bought Dodge in 1928), it will be offered in an impressive number of versions and options and with practically all the engines in Chrysler's inventory.
Its production will end with the 1974 model year.
The Dodge Challenger R/T 383 Magnum is one of the last true muscle cars produced before the 1973 oil crisis.
The Dodge Challenger R/T was also the heroine of the cult movie "Vanishing Point", starring Barry Newman aka Kowalski. Closer to us, the film Born Killers by Oliver Stone, 2 Fast 2 Furious or Boulevard of Death will bring back the cult Dodge Challenger.
