These days, the 1971 Dodge Challenger is a rare car and not easy to find on the roads.
What’s so special about this car is the fact that there are several features that make it even rarer. It comes equipped with a 440 Magnum, convertible roof top, manual 4-gear Pistol Grip, factory A/C and the rear disc brakes an option at the time.
Very few cars were manufactured to such specifications, the engine even with its high output power was upgraded with an even higher output kit taking its normal 380-400 HP engine to 525 HP.
In 2014 the 1971 Dodge Challenger was awarded the Best Retro American Muscle Car for the year 2014 at Lebanon Motorsport and Tuning Show last August.
This rare car was purchased in 1971 from the dealer in Lebanon, it was swapped in many hands until I found it in 2001- said Farouk
The last owner had modified it to non-standard conditions, after researching the original specifications, as I do with all my cars, I fully restored it to its original specifications and colors with all original parts from USA – added Farouk
