For example in most gearheads minds the term Plum Crazy recalls one of Chryslers most creative and confident eras. R/T short for Road/Track invokes visions of muscle cars prowling small town streets. Dana 60 or Super Track Pak incites visions of late-night stoplight brawls and octane-fueled quarter-miles.

Well our latest top-notch MoPar funnels all of those appealing attributes in to one exclusive investment grade classic.

During that acute rebuild the cars all-original body was stripped to bare metal coached into shape and thoroughly block-sanded into virtually flawless surfaces. Once those surfaces were completely clean and fully prepped a spectacular coat of correct Plum Crazy Metallic 2-stage was buffed to a wet looking shine. And today this clean Dodge rolls as one super slick brute that according to a 2015 Vehicle Inspection Report conducted by David Wise of MMC Detroit carries an appraised value of $240K!</p><p>Given its resurgence in popularity no doubt aided by the current LC-based version the Challenger is considered by some to be the quintessential American muscle car: a status that naturally invokes an aggressive and exciting aesthetic.

At the sides of that hood a sculpted profile hangs correct R/T stripes amid fresh rocker trim flush door handles a correct mirror and ornate Challenger scripts. And at the back of the car a stainless-trimmed valence centers body-width taillights and more D O D G E lettering between a second Challenger R/T badge a second mirrored bumper and correct quad-outlet exhaust tips.</p><p>ENGINE</p><p>Toss this coupes light hood and youll find a legendary 426 cubic inch Hemi that while not original to the car is a date-correct piece.
