Every day we see more often muscle car barn finds, but not every barn find deserves attention. Because what we are seeing here probably is one of the most desirable and respected Mopar muscle cars, actually it’s a very rare 1971 Dodge Challenger RT 426 Hemi car.
In other words, this is an all original, numbers matching 4-speed ‘71 Hemi Challenger RT. Besides his age and condition where he was kept all those years, his body is still in good shape. What makes this Mopar very desirable is the engine under the hood.
The legendary “Elephant” Chrysler’s 426 cubic inch, 7.0-liter big-block Hemi V8 engine. With four-barrel carburetors, this engine is factory rated at 425 horsepower and 425 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is connected to an A833 four-speed manual transmission system, transferring the engine power at the rear axle.
At auctions, these kinds of classic Mopar muscle cars, restored in their former glory, can reach six-figure price. Probably this 1971 Dodge Challenger RT 426 Hemi can also reach those figures, however, it needs a little bit of love and attention.
