Here is an original 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T that is an original California car as well. This car was owned and built by Ken Funk for his daughter. Most all of the restoration work was done around 10 years ago. It is a numbers matching motor and transmission and includes the original build sheet. Many of the bolt-on motor parts are all part number and date coded correct for the car. The body has just over 100k miles and is very solid. It retains all of its original sheet metal including the trunk pan. The only addition has been the shaker hood. Besides the shaker hood, the car was built back to build sheet specs with the original color and options.
The motor, however, is not the stock 8:1 compression motor that would have come in 1971. It has been freshened up very nicely and hit the dyno at a respectable 360hp. Coupled with the 727 automatic and 3:55 possi gears in the rear, it is a very strong street running car that has no problem smoking the tires. It is an excellent running and driving car that does have power steering and power disk brakes for good stopping as well.
The interior is a mix of both original and new. The seat covers are new from Legendary. The door panels and dash are still the original ones that came with the car. The dash has a couple very minor cracks but it was too nice to change it out. The gauges all work and have been freshened up by Redline gauges. The engine compartment is very original and correct as well with the correct radiator, alternator, starter, and bolt on items. The Shaker hood was added and is one of the first generation AMD. The shaker bubble and parts are the very first gen Gregory bubbles and base with NOS grills. It is hard to beat the look of a shaker on an E body.
The trunk is finished off with an OEM polyglass tire for the spare along with a complete jack system. Its wheels are still OEM correct to the car and the underside is still original and has not been painted or detailed, just cleaned very nice and left factory stock to show its authenticity. A correct exhaust system from accurate exhaust was installed including mufflers and resonators along with tips.
This is a very correct and clean driving car. Very reliable and turns heads where ever it goes.
