Vehicle Story

This 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 383 Magnum is a mechanically and cosmetically-restored example with a replacement interior, factory air conditioning, and a limited-slip rear differential. It is powered by a 383ci V8 paired with a console-shifted 727 Slapstick automatic transmission. This Metallic Blue over black Challenger has been with the seller for nine years and is offered with receipts of the engine work and a clear Illinois title in the sellers name.

The body is finished blue metallic with black stripes, a black vinyl roof, R/T badging, and stainless hood clips. Factory aero equipment includes hood scoops up front, and a trunk-mounted spoiler, and a dual exhaust system exits at the rear.   

Factory 15” steel wheels with chrome trim rings are wrapped in two-year-old BFGoodrich Radial T/A raised-white letter tires, and the car is equipped with power steering and power brakes.

The interior is trimmed with reupholstered black vinyl bucket seats and matching door panels and equipped with factory air conditioning. Woodgrain accents the dash, doors, and center console, and a fire extinguisher and full-size spare can be found in the carpet-lined trunk. The trunk has a carpeted mat and is equipped with a fire extinguisher and a full-size spare tire.

Instrumentation is framed by a 3-spoke steering wheel and consists of a column-mounted 9k tachometer, a 150-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. The 5-digit mechanical odometer reads approximately 89k miles, though true mileage is unknown.

The 383ci V8 has been rebuilt to factory specifications according to the seller and has been rated at 335 horsepower. Both the radiator and battery have been recently replaced, and fender tags are present in the factory locations.

Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a rebuilt 727 automatic transmission and limited-slip 3.23:1 differential.

Receipts of the engine work will go with the car.

@WilliR – No rust; no body work. The car was repainted in 1998 . It was originally orange and now blue. No fluid leaks . In 2020 we took a 700 mile trip to Wisconsin and Michigan. The car ran flawlessly. It did not use oil. ...
