Today this Dodge Challenger is a highly appealing, purpose built muscle car that conveys a sense of power and precision.
Wearing lines from same designer who was made famous by the awesome 1966 Dodge Charger, this purple and black Dodge Challenger makes a bold styling statement from virtually every angle. Up front, a tough looking split grille hangs a showroom fresh “Dodge” emblem inside of four showroom fresh headlights and well maintained stainless trim.
Below that grille, a body width chrome bumper hangs above clear parking lights and a Trans Am style chin spoiler; and above that grille, new hood pins sit in front of bright “Hemi” hood emblems. Behind the hood, like-new glass is bordered by excellent looking stainless trim which combines with new chrome drip rails and excellent looking chrome sport mirrors to frame a fresh black stickers-43-c.asp” target=”_blank”>vinyl top. And at the sides of the car, prominent fender lines are complemented by new stainless wheel well trim, flush satin finish door handles and a pristine chrome fuel cap.
Just behind the front tires high mounted “Dodge Challenger” scripts serve to intimidate would-be stoplight competition, and just in front of the rear tires, body-matched louvers add to the cars aggressive Trans Am looks. At the back of the car, a stainless trimmed rear valence holds showroom fresh tail lights and a third “Dodge Challenger” script inside a black tail light panel. And a second chrome bumper hangs built in bumper guards above a sculpted roll pan which incorporates awesome quad outlet stainless steel exhaust tips.
Big blocks were still on the menu in 1971, but they were NOTHING like the badass mill under this Challengers flat black hood.

At the sides of the engine, custom fabricated and ceramic coated long tube headers hide under a polished SSBC master cylinder and hoses for the cars Vintage Air climate control system. And at the front of the engine a March serpentine system spins billet pulleys and a chrome alternator below fresh hoses and a new belt.
