Classic Car Overview
2009 Dodge Challenger When it comes to pony cars, as was the Challengers first outing, it wasnt early on the scene. In fact, it was one of the last pony cars of the Detroit Three to roll onto the scene and yet its lateness didnt make it any less awesome. The 426 HEMI engine, dubbed the Elephant Motor, powered the Challenger, as did the smaller 2.2-liter Slant Six. The powertrain simply blew people away and made the Challenger not only rise but beat most challenges. Though this version lasted just five years from 1970-74, it remains one of the most powerful debuts in the automotive world. For consignment a simply amazing SRT8, only a 2-owner car, both adults, and 600 HP under the hood. This car has a flawless history with a clean and clear title, and perfect Carfax report. This car will impress in our hallowed halls of Classic Auto Mall. Exterior Meticulously cared for, played with and put away nicely for the next time, this favorite toy is in excellent condition. Paint is wonderfully shiny, with no inclusions just smooth metal all minding their gaps. Bathed in TorRed with a black front wing hanging underneath the menacing black grille with just a hint of chrome, and a dual cowled hood. With a body matching integrated front bumper, this car retains a beautiful aerodynamic form. Matching sport mirrors on either side, and a small black spoiler on the trunk lid and we are ready to make some smoke. Big 20-inch wheels and medium low-profile rubber are on all 4 corners. A red serpent in the garden of eden we call the drag strip. Interior Leather and suede in the form of Royale Leather with perforated suede microfiber, covers the front buckets and rear bench. These seats are in very good condition, with no stains drips or errors, just a slight patina on the drivers left bolster. Ergonomically placed dash instruments, controls and steering wheel allow anyone of any size to get comfortable. All interior is shades of dark gray and black, and just a stunning combination to go with the exterior TorRed. Comfort abounds in biblical proportions. Drivetrain The 6.1 liter Hemi V8 which is not original to this car has been modified for extra power. It has been bored and stroked to 426 ci, has a Manley 4340 crank, Manley 4340 H beam rods, and Mahle forged pistons. Arrington CNC ported and polished heads are on the sides of the block. The mill is fuel injected utilizing a Stage 2 ported intake manifold, with 80# fuel injectors and a Vortex V-3 SI Supercharger thrown on for extra giggles. This mill has been on the dyno, and it puts out 626 HP. There is a Mag1+ Semi Gen 3 Dominator series torque converter that was custom built to 426 with Supercharger specs, and was blue printed and rated to 1000 HP. It is a 5-speed automatic. Out back is a limited slip 3.06 rear. SLP long tube headers blend into an SLP Loudmouth exhaust and mufflers. Hell yeah! Undercarriage Looking like it has barely been used underneath even with no road grime! No rust just straight structurally strong steel, Brembo power disc brakes all around, and independent coil spring front suspension and independent 5 link on the rear are noted. Drive-Ability This car lights right up upon turning the key and will go at any speed you want it to. It runs very smoothly, and when that supercharger kicks in...woooah horsies! Handles great and is overall a comfortable ride. Love the seats...wicked comfortable! With plenty of documented dyno power, beautiful paint, low mileage (20,830 original) 2 owners, and well kept, this is a recent classic you will not go wrong with. A speed demon that will give your friends a devil of a time trying to beat you on the arm drop. In fact give them a head start just so they seem to have a chance!
