Usually when we talk about an early 70s Chrysler were introducing a factory-correct Hemi showpiece thatll probably spend most of its time on a trailer or in a garage. In fact it seems almost odd to see the words Challenger and pro-tourer in the same sentence because cars like this stunning 71 hardtop seem to always be restored to red rope collector status. But this Dodge winner of multiple national awards from both Goodguys and ISCA is definitely one of the coolest Challenger pro-tourers weve ever seen! Professionally built from its full Art Morrison chassis and 426 cubic inch Hemi to its leather-lined interior and American Racing wheels this custom is dangerously fast and brutally appealing. If youre searching for a bad to the bone classic thats fun to look at a blast to drive and priced so well youll have to pinch yourself youve found your next car!</p><p>BODYWORK/TRIM</p><p>If you want to build a crowd-pleasing pro-tourer its best to abide by a few basic rules. First source one of the most desirable muscle cars in American history. Second splash a killer paint job on a laser straight body and great looking wheels. And finally make the car hug the asphalt. The resulting classic is exactly what you see here: a unique truly special creation that simply cant be duplicated with anything modern cheap or mass-produced. This cool E-Bodys professional restoration began when its chiseled fuselage was meticulously stripped and thoroughly massaged by Ron Sall Body Werx of Zeeland Michigan. Once that canvas was fully prepped Royal Oaks Pfaff Designs split DuPont Metallic Black and Hot Hues Blazing Copper with a silver stripe and engine-turned gold leaf. Naturally that striking base was sealed in thick clear and buffed to a substantial presence. And today this first class MoPar rolls as one super slick show stopper that possesses a perfect combination of brilliant looks and brutal performance.</p><p>Featuring many small tweaks that add up to one smooth concordant profile this classic puts the c in cover car. At the front of its body bright halogen headlights center a 1971-exclusive grille above a tucked bumper and factory parking lamps. Behind that grille an R/T-spec hood founds flush-mount glass beneath color-keyed drip rails. Beneath that glass a shaved profile is devoid of everything but simple color-keyed hot rod mirrors. And at the back of that profile a factory spoiler frames LED taillights a second tucked bumper and monochromatic exhaust tips.</p><p>ENGINE</p><p>While this Challenger probably left the assembly line with a 318 or 383 the most desirable MoPar builds usually employ some form of Hemi power. And since this coupe is one of the most desirable MoPars on the market it features 426 cubic inches of all-go full-show Hemi. At the top of that MoPar Performance mill snazzy Hilborn fuel injection forces fossils and oxygen in to big Chrysler heads which perch painted breathers on pristine color-keyed valve covers. At the front of those heads an MSD Pro-Billet distributor sequences fire between an MSD coil and eight Taylor Spiro Pro plug wires. At the base of that distributor Billet Specialties Truetrac components spin modern power steering beneath a polished alternator and coated AC compressor. At the front of the block a beefy radiator makes good use of a
