1971 was the only year when Chrysler offered the HEMI engine in the third generation Charger. This was the introductory year for the new body design with a wraparound chrome front numper. Only 63 cars were equiped with HEMI engines out of total production of 2,659 in 1971.
Options on the HEMI engine included a ‘ramcharger’ hood scoop that was controlled on a lever from the dashboard, a rear spoiler and optional hidden headlights.
urchased new from Grand Spaulding Dodge in 1971, this Hemi Orange on Black R/T has been driven just 33,000 miles and has been thoroughly renewed with a complete rotisserie restoration. The 426 Hemi breathes fresh air through an air-grabber style hood scoop and is backed by a heavy-duty 4-speed manual and Dana rear end. The interior features high-back bucket seats with a center console for the Hurst Pistol-Grip shifter and a wood grain-trimmed Rallye gauge cluster.
The car’s extensive documentation includes a build sheet, window sticker and all the original Mr. Norm paperwork.
