By  | 


Engine: 440 magnum
Mileage: 123,456
Price: US $30,999.00

This 71 Charger RT is in amazing condition and I can only say that the only downside is the high mileage.
You even get a spare motor thrown in with the deal, ‘I will also offer to sell to the winning bidder a BUILT 383 12.5 to1 piston big solid cam and gear drive high rise intake and 727 reverse manual drive train 5500 stall for a great deal. And all my mopar parts.’

The car is up in Canada, so it is possibly for those people willing to travel to Canada for this one, but either way, this is a lot of car for the money.

‘1971 Charger RT U Code Number matching 440 magnum 727 auto triple black. Car is virtually new including numbers matching 440 magnum (rebuilt by SPM racing) mild cam and high rise intake 727 rebuilt number matching tranny 3.23:1 Rear Axle Ratio

Body and paint by Radical Rods and Restoration Barrie Ontario. New legendary black interior. mint black dash and gauges with tach. (I bought a complete parts car just for these pieces. Grill and taillight bezels taken to MOPAR restoration expert in Ottawa for detailed paint and restoration. New tail light lenses. New booster and master cylinder. New front windshield. New windshield wiper motor. New wheel well moldings. New door rubbers. New bumpers (I still have the old undented ones that will go with car. new rad new brake and fuel lines new gas tank new steering box and alternator. New electronic ignition new rallye rim and BF Goodrich tires New chin spoiler and new rear trunk spoiler (proper trunk on the car for spoiler). New front turn lens

There are a few thing left to do and I have a life change (reason selling car) Car needs a neutral switch and kick down rod installed ( I have it) I currently have a nice black console that goes with the car and the slap stick assembly) It has a BM shifter currently in car. gasket on sending unit needs replacing. Passenger window needs adjustment Needs rear seat belts installed and only thing missing is the plastic cover for dome light I will include what is left of the old amber gold interior trim console , etc

First time out this year it won a Peoples Choice award. You can park it beside anything at a car show and it still draws attention.

Car comes with original intake and steering box and bumpers. I will include the Ram Charger air cleaner assemble and also the original air cleaner very good condition.This car was originally gold with an amber gold interior (sorry to the purists) but I had a vision and it turned out exactly as I wanted it to. I also have the original build sheets The first picture shown was taken last fall the other pictures were taken in the last two weeks. As you can see it now has the chin and rear spoiler installed. I will try to add more pictures later.
