71 Challenger, 61000 miles, just re-painted the original EL5 Butterscotch with white interior, 318, console 904 automatic, power steering, manual drum brakes, air conditioning, 8.75 rear end, front and rear sway bars. 215/65-15's on 15x7 magnum 500's in the front and 255/60-15's on the rear with 15x8's. Full dual exhaust with X pipe and turn downs using the original manifolds. Recently added Edelbrock Performer manifold and 625 cfm carb with electric choke. Otherwise the rest is stock. Front and rear sway bars have been added. It has been through the Ziebart rustproof treatment and undercoated. Front end has been rebuilt, and the brakes have been replaced, including the drums. Standard instrument cluster with aftermarket stereo, perfect black dash pad, nice original door panels/headliner and carpet. Front seats have just been correctly re-covered and look fantastic. This is a very nice, normal driving, turn-key car. Fresh paint and R/T stripes, great sounding dual exhaust without being obnoxious. Manual drum brakes work fantastic, considering that they are manual drum brakes. Can be driven as-is and improved on as you drive it. Or just drive it the way it is for years to come. Get the high dollar R/T look without the price of an original that is impossible to find anyway. More info and pics at www.themopardude.com or call 620-364-8200 $32500
