Classic Car Overview

1971 Dodge Challenger HEMI R/T Convertible Tribute - Dodge only made 12 cars in 1970, and are valued near one million dollars - California Rotisserie Restoration: over 1,100 hours - 472ci HEMI Crate Engine - Torque Flite Automatic Transmission - 8.75 Sure Grip Rear Diff - Power Steering - Power Disc Brakes - Power Windows - Rally Wheels - Shaker Hood - Power Convertible Top - RT Decals - Rally Steering Wheel - Rallye Dash, Factory Tach, and Gauges (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T Convertible Tribute on a site other than GarageKeptMotors.com, its possible that youve only seen some of our many photographs of this vehicle due to website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 210 photographs, including a short walk-around-and-startup video, please go to our main website: GarageKeptMotors.) ... the automotive equivalent of a sawed-off shotgun. Hemmings Muscle Machines, July 2011 That Muscle Machines description above is probably the best explanation for why so many serious Mopar fans would reserve a top spot on their most desired wish list for a Hemi-powered 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T. If they were really into day-dreaming, theyd go on to add specifics like Vitamin C-orange paint over black upholstery (because orange and Hemi were made for each other); automatic transmission, and a Shaker hood (because, well... Shaker). And maybe if theyd smoked something you couldnt purchase legally back in 71, they might submit one more request: Make it a convertible. Who can blame these Challenger lovers for conjuring up what many believe is the best muscle car of all time? Unfortunately, theyd have to be dreaming, because Dodge manufactured only 12 such Challengers equipped that way, and any of those that remain are million-dollar collectibles, probably locked away from prying eyes and heavy feet. Too bad, because one other thing is true about Mopar fans: They want to drive! The 71 Dodge Challenger R/T convertible offered here is, quite literally, a dream come true. Equipped exactly like the dream car described, it differs in three important ways. First, its power comes from a brand new, reliable 472-cubic-inch Hemi crate engine. Second, while it was born a Dodge Challenger, it has since been rebuilt literally from the ground up into a stunning R/T recreation. Third, it can be purchased for a fraction of what one of the dozen original cars would go for, assuming you could find one. The best news out of all is that this Challenger R/T, while certainly a star-to-be at any cars-and-coffee gathering, can actually be driven the way it was intended (or... blasted off like a sawed-off shotgun, if you prefer the Hemmings metaphor.) The restoration and up-build of this car are fully documented in a binder thats included in the sale. Detailed photographs of its original condition, disassembly, reassembly, painting and more are all there. The use of as many new-old-stock parts as possible marked the cars over-1,100-hour California rotisserie restoration. Available at the GarageKeptMotors website, the more than 210 high-definition photographs of the car, taken from virtually every angle including from underneath, provide a good overview of the cars first-class, practically showroom-new condition. The short walk-around-and-startup video gives a brief audio sampling of real Mopar muscle. We encourage in-person inspections of the car at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call or email us to arrange an advance appointment, or to ask any questions. Perusing the photographs, Mopar fans will quickly spot all the cars details and features. We add them here on the off-chance they miss one: wood-grain Rallye dashboard featuring a full array of gauges and a tachometer; wood-rim rally steering wheel; bucket seats; bespoke t-shifter Torque Flite automatic; full center console; power steering; power windows; power disc brakes; rally wheels; R/T side stripe
