This Challenger Resto-Mod has the best of both worlds: a classic car and a modern drivetrain. The firm-feel power steering gearbox provides excellent road feel and power brakes will stop on a dime. The aluminum radiator cools the 6.1-liter HEMI that provides the power and a 4-speed automatic transmission puts that power to the ground. The subframe connectors provide a stronger uni-body.

This head-turner is finished in beautiful Victory Red paint with a white interior.
