My 1971 Dodge Challenger

















I found this car ten years ago in an under ground parking garage just sitting there under a thick blanket of dust.
It's an original 318 2bbl, 904, 83/4 car with black interior and console, in great shape for sitting around 11 years.
There is some rust around the rear window from the vinyl roof and a little more on the rear 1/4s just behind the wheel openings. Other then that its a solid car.
Here is a pic of it when I went to buy it in the summer of 2001 (finally).

Here's some pix of it at home.
(No it doesn't sit outside it has a nice warm shop to sleep in.)
So now my next big decision, what drive line to go with?
I have a complete 440 HP 4spd Dana set up out of my old poor 68 coronet R/T that the body shop wrecked on me.(thats another story I'll tell you later)
Or I build a small block stroker 727 83/4 set up.
I want this car to handle, I love it when a car can take hard corners.
But I also want the most fun/bang for my buck.
No matter what drive line I go with, it will get an even better suspension and brake set up then the Swinger.
So if you have any sugestions or tips let me know at my email address.
Thanks ... Jackson.

I figured it out.
I am going with the 440 4spd dana setup.
It should be a real blast.
If anyone out there knows of any 3 or 4 spd parts cars out there please let me know, I need the pedals, hump and frame braket to do the swap.
Thanks.
















This is how I would like my Challenger to look when it's done.(below)
