Rare Gem Alert: The 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T – A Limited Edition Showstopper!

Out of all these Challenger R/T models, the rarest was the 426 paired with an automatic transmission, as Dodge built only 12 such models, so finding one today is nearly impossible.

The model that we have here, however, is not that rare, though it’s not an easy to find one either.

This time, the configuration under the hood is a mix of a 383 V8 and a four-speed manual transmission, with Dodge only building 465 units for this particular model year. So again, you don’t get to see such a Challenger every day, especially given not a lot of them are still believed to be around.

The owner of this Challenger, who has recently decided to post it online on eBay, says the car is mostly original with only a few small exceptions, such as the carpets inside the cabin.

The paint is no longer the one that was sprayed on the body by Dodge, but on the other hand, it’s a professional job that has been performed at some point during its life. No other specifics have been provided, but eBay seller fjoe79qi5 guarantees the V8 has never been removed from the engine bay, so the 76,000 miles (about 122,000 km) on the clock are fully accurate.

The Challenger still comes with the original build sheet, the air conditioning, and the rest of the factory-installed equipment, as the owner says they have specifically been struggling to keep everything as close to the original configuration as possible.

Clearly, a Challenger so rare can’t come cheap, and this one really doesn’t. The owner expects to get no less than $109,000 for the car, and it’ll certainly be interesting to see if it ends up selling for such an ambitious price.
