A.G.A.R. This just in....THE END !
« on: December 05, 2020, 01:26:32 PM »
Picked up this 1971 Challenger today, I haven't even looked inside of it yet....but it appears pretty solid....

You have to squint along side of me on this one :rubeyes: ....This turd has one heck of a recipe for one heck of a car.... :drooling:

In point form:

2017 Ignition Orange Paint 2019 Pitch Black Paint
Black interior
Black 71 side stipes
Black vinyl roof
Rear Window louvers
Front & Rear Spoilers
Shaker hood w/pins

New 392 Crate Hemi
5speed Tremic transmission
Front & Rear coil over suspension from RMS Altercation
6 & 4 piston Wilwood brakes
17" YearOne Rally Rims Nitto tires

Custom leather seats
Leather Tuff Grip
Dakota Digital Dash
Vintage A/C

I can't wait, and I'll likely be asking all kinds of questions of our Gen III Hemi owners.... :help:

Odd you mention that, that idea was on the table, because at first he wanted an AAR clone, but Barracuda donors are too hard to find...this car was in my backyard

Cool plan except I would ditch the shaker hood idea. Pretty much need to do a shaker on a Cuda but they're more of PITA than they're worth on a Challenger and the Challenger R/T hood looks pretty good.

Could you give me a heads up on the Challenger shaker issues?

For me it's just the expense of everything. I did two within a couple of years and I swore I wouldn't do it again$$$

I agree about the shaker vs rally hood, but EVERYBODY wants a shaker, even though this will basically be the bubble/seal sitting empty on top of the 392  :dunno:

It can be done in a functional and OEM "appearing" way...   you need to ditch the "barrel" style intake though and go with a more conventional dual plane EFI manifold with aftermarket throttle body.
