The R/T model was one of the performance leaders of the Dodge Charger lineup in 1971 and is a very popular muscle car today. Bill Brownlie, design chief, and associates gave the ’71 Charger a fresh look. Its fuselage styling resembles the main body of an aircraft which is much different from the former models. Like the Coronet R/T and Super Bee, the ’71 Charger had a special Air Grabber scoop mounted in the hood, directly above the air cleaner. To get fresh air channeled into the carburetor, there is a small lever under the dash which pops up the scoop.
Motor Trend nominated it as one of the top 10 cars of the year. It was the only traditional muscle car of the group as it stood out among the new compacts launched that same year.
This GB5 bright metallic blue ’71 Charger is definitely something unique and would be a great addition to your American Muscle car collection.
