First-Gen Challenger Features Numbers Matching Engine

An icon for Dodge these days, the Challenger was not always the star it is today. The first run of the car would last just four years before being nixed by the manufacturer and after a four year hiatus they would try again only to discontinue it a second time in 1983. Twenty-five years would then pass before the third-generation would take to the streets in 2008 giving us the version we have today.

This 1971 is a second model year, first-generation Challenger R/T and a fine one at that. It maintains its matching numbers 440 CI Six Pack, the second most powerful engine option of the time. A vibrant yellow this “Road/Track” Challenger also features an iconic Shaker hood and rear window slats and spoiler.

Headed to auction this weekend at Mecum Auctions’ Harrisburg, PA auction this Challenger is certainly to be a desired lot when it crosses the block.
