1971 Model Year Dodge Charger R/T
The 70s was a time for downsizing and change, but the Dodge Charger stuck to its guns for the third generation. The 1971 model year saw the last time the legendary R/T name would be seen for quite a while and also marked the final years of high-performance machines by Dodge for quite a while. With only a handful of examples being made thanks to the oil crisis and rising insurance costs, the car we have today is a diamond in the rough. Present with all its glory is this legendary 1971 Dodge Charger R/T. With just 200 miles reported since its 5-year restoration journey, this classic performance machine is reported to be a U-code car that also sports a Track Pack making it an actual unicorn.
This 1971 Dodge Charger R/T sports a butterscotch exterior and a black vinyl roof for that 70s look. The car is in showroom condition thanks to a reported rotisserie restoration reported to have been done 15 years ago. The seller notes that the car has run only 200 miles since its restoration, and it shows how well the paint and body are preserved. This extremely rare R/T model means you get the black stickering running across, the iconic Ram charger hood, and optional hidden headlights commanding all the attention on the front. In terms of shoes, this car rides on a set of silver rally wheels that look period correct and gel well with the car. Stepping into the black interior of this 1971 Dodge Charger R/T is like stepping back into the 70s. The leather interior is all intact with a fine mix of wood and original interior trim, ensuring the comfort factor of this classic performance machine.
Performance offerings of today are usually dressed-up vehicles that are just meant to push out extra sales, but back in the day, it was the real deal. This 1971 Dodge Charger R/T doesn't just sport a catchy exterior; underneath its hood lies a Goliath-sized 440ci (7.2L) V8 powertrain. The fun doesn't stop there, as the moment you pop open the air filter housing, the iconic 6-pack carburetor setup makes itself visible. Power is sent to the car's rear wheels through an automatic transmission, and Sunday drives are made more pleasurable with power steering and power brakes.
