1971 was the very last year that the iconic HEMI engine would find a home in a Dodge Charger and also signified the introduction of the all-new Charger with its tauter bodywork and rakish profile. Just 33 of these new cars with an old-school 426 HEMI and automatic transmission were built, each good for 425 horsepower and 490lb ft of torque.
This Charger is one of those 33 and is finished in a mesmerising blue specification. The bulging bonnet that wears a distinctive matte black stripe hinting at the power within, while the interior mimics the the exterior’s blue finish. It’s a handsome looking thing that sports a more subtle look than many of its brothers.
This numbers-matching car comes with plenty of paperwork including a complete ownership history and original broadcast sheet. It’s also a very well equipped example of the muscle car featuring factory extras such as the rallye instrument cluster, Maximum Cooling Package, Hemi suspension, chrome exhaust tips, and high-back bucket seats.
The Dodge Charger was designed to take the fight to Ford and Chevrolet, particularly when equipped with a thunderous HEMI engine. This example marks one of the very last of its breed to be built, further adding to its 1 of 33 significance. It’s currently for sale with the Legendary Motor Company with pricing upon appointment.
