FOR SALE:: Recently discovered in backyard NW Chicagoland suburbs. Had not been driven since 1989 by the 2nd owner; currently not running but have turned engine over by hand. Was covered with tarp; complete car; no accidents; very rusty overall -- full restoration project for the right person. Original numbers matching 340 engine and 727 trans. Comes with an extra 340 (1970) that's inside the engine bay; original numbers matching engine sitting aside -- that's two 340 engines with this car; headers and dual exhaust. Sure-Grip 3.91; power steering; manual drum brakes; rear window louvers; rear wing spoiler; front and rear sway bars; ralley dash; dual painted door mirrors; 15x7 ralley rims; factory tinted windshield and all glass; black interior -- customer velour seats -- was a past show car. Front grille and rear tail light panel are in very good condition (no apparent damage). Electronic ignition.; 3-speed wipers; extra 26" radiator. Factory black R/T side stripes and R/T hood blackout. Extra ~1970 HP 383 engine (from a SuperBee) also comes with the package.

Production figures for 1971: 1 of 27,377 Challengers built; 1 of 4,892 R/T models; 1 of 1,078 R/Ts with the 340 V8; 1 of approximately 4.2% came from the factory in GY3 Citron Yella factory paint. This was an early production car (Nov 1970) -- that's why it has the 1970 model rear wing spoiler - original with car. Odometer shows original 96K miles.

Previous gentleman/owner used car for custom shows and drag racing -- has front tow bars. This car is truly very rare and deserves a full restoration -- again, very rusty overall, will need everything replaced.

Pulled just recently from the gentleman's back yard; currently being stored in heated/enclosed warehouse for viewing and inspection. Clear title in my hands. I'd love to restore this car and add to my collection, but I'll let it go to a good home and enthusiastic Mopar collector. Price is $22,500 PM me for more info; I have multiple pictures available.
