Believed to be the only blue, black and plaid 1971 Demon GSS ever produced

It doesn't take long for car guys to put two and two together. Chrysler may have intended their compact fleet to be inexpensive grocery getters but, thanks to their smaller proportions and relatively light weight, the hot rodding possibilities just couldn't be ignored. Sold through Chicago's legendary Grand Spaulding Dodge, this national award winning GSS is believed to be the only 1971 Demon optioned with blue, black and plaid aesthetics. The car is also a true H-code A-Body that retains an original 340/3-speed drivetrain. And, it's fully documented, from its original broadcast sheet and dealership paperwork all the way to a binder of restoration photos that were snapped during its 2004 restoration. If you're looking for an incredible piece of MoPar muscle that's way cooler than habitual B-Bodies, and way more accessible than overhyped E-Bodies, here's your next classic!


Like all Mr. Norm's specials, the Demon GSS combined skilled dyno tuning and extra performance goodies with a top-notch platform to maximize performance. Much cleaner than when it originally rolled out of Grand Spaulding's legendary showroom, this surly Dodge has been transformed into a take-no-prisoners show stopper that, according to its seller, claimed First Place A-Body at the 2004 All-Chrysler Nationals. You won't be staying under the radar with the car's slick Bright Blue Metallic 2-stage, which, along with a correct hood and correct MoPar war paint, highlights all-original sheetmetal. Those visuals are detailed by new bumpers, polished trim, a correct roof and colorful callouts. And overall, this fully sorted Demon is a virtually flawless representation of timeless Detroit muscle.


When are two letters insufficient? "GS" says it all, right? Gran Sport, Grand Sport, however you want to pontificate, if you're going to add a third letter it better mean something. And when Mr. Norm's tacked on an "S", they were sure to highlight the fact that they juiced a lightweight, compact car into a pavement-rippling torque monster. Check this GSS's glossy engine bay and you'll find an original LA V8 that hangs a familiar 2780930 casting number opposite a September 23rd, 1970 casting date and matching partial VIN. At the top of the Hemi Orange mill, a trio of correct Holley 2-barrels guides wind from a correct, Ford-style air cleaner in to a 1970-model Edelbrock intake. At the sides of that intake, painted valve covers cap factory heads and clean, cast iron exhaust manifolds. At the back of those heads, a traditional points distributor sequences spark through requisite Chrysler Electronic Suppression cables. A correctly tagged radiator circulates water through pliable hoses and old school squeeze clamps. And overall, this Dodge's clean engine bay is a nice combination of form and function, from its Chrysler voltage regulator and reproduction MoPar battery all the way to its Chrysler washer tank and tight MoPar fuel filter.


Take one look under this slick A-Body and you'll find a fully sorted chassis that's adequately equipped to back the car's aggressive appearance. An original Borg Warner T85 3-speed, authenticated by a matching partial VIN, twists a proven 8.75-inch rear end that's fitted with correct 3.91 gears. That smooth drivetrain feeds a heavy duty front torsion bar and rear leaf suspension that's shackled to factory manual steering. At the corners of that suspension, correct heavy duty drums provide increased stopping prowess. Exhaust rumbles through stainless, true-dual pipes, which employ traditional turbo mufflers and polished stainless tips. Above that impressive hardware, original, body-matched floors frame a fresh fuel tank and clean stainless fluid lines. And at the corners of those floors, correct Rallye wheels spin correct E70-14 Goodyear Custom Wide Treads around stainless trim rings and charcoal center caps.


Inside this Demon, an awesome and equally correct interior adds unique spice to the car's already hot aesthetics. The car's correct Plaid and Black benches are soft to the touch, featuring pliable covers that present very well. In front of those perches, a warp-free dash hangs detailed telemetry beside a familiar Chrysler Solid State. Below that dash, "Demon" branded floor mats protect fade-free carpet, which frames a traditional Hurst shifter. At the sides of that carpet, weather-free door panels unite matte frames with serious "GTS" badging and a sprinkle of bright hardware. The driver stays connected through a 'deep dish' steering wheel. And passengers stow their essentials in a fully restored trunk.
