Rare 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 Six-Pack Is Bold In Looks And Power

This bold vintage Mopar is just 1 of 129.

The first-generation Dodge Challenger made its big debut for the 1970 model year, and it was produced until 1974. For the go-fast enthusiast, a performance model was also introduced in 1971 called the Challenger R/T (Road/Track) and was available with a few different engine options. This particular 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 Six-Pack is packed with potent power that will smoke most of the competition. This potent beauty was listed on eBay where it sold for $19,100 out of 26 bidders.

Finished in a bold orange with contrasting black stripes and black vinyl roof, this vintage Mopar is flashy inside and out. Bolted to all four corners are a set of fat tires that protrude from the wheel wells. Black lettering can be found throughout as well as a nice wing on the back.

The potent powerplant is a 440-cubic-inch (7.2-liter) "Six-Pack" V8 engine that is capable of 375-horsepower, although this motor is not original to the car. Exclusive to the Challenger R/T model, the "Six-Pack" is topped with three double-barrel carburetors that feed the hungry engine and is equipped with 10.3:1 compression. Shifting power to the rear wheels is the original numbers-matching 4-speed manual transmission. While the 426-cubic-inch Hemi is also on the order list for the R/T, the V-Code Six-Pack would be hard to beat.

The doors open to a black interior, and the bucket seats that were removed also come with the sale of the car, and that includes the orange plaid inserts that have seen better days.

This bright and rare 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 Six-Pack in this eBay listing just sold for $19,100.00 out of 26 bidders.
