I am selling my 1971 Dodge Charger, hich I have owned for the past 5 years. As far as I know this vehicle has remained in the Northwest (specifically Oregon, ashington, daho) its whole life. It sat garaged for approximately 15 years before I purchased it, nd I have kept it garaged as well with no winter driving. There is very little rust or body damage and most of the original undercoating is still intact. The original 318 motor runs well, ut has an occasional lifter tick after a cold start or after extended highway driving. Read this listing carefully, iew all 24 pictures, nd feel free to ask questions.

The original engine and drive train had approximately 126,000 miles on it when I purchased the vehicle 5 years ago. I have added approximately 13,000 miles since then.

Before I purchased the car the rear shocks and leaf springs were replaced sometime in the late 70's/early '80s (air shocks + adjustable shackles), nbsp;the factory steel wheels were replaced with cast steel wheels by Appliance around the same time, nd true dual exhaust was installed sometime in the mid '90s. The tires that are on the car right now were on it when I bought it, o they are at minimum 20 years old, robably older.

I have a binder of receipts for major parts/labor (excluding routine maintenance)going back to early 2011that will be included, ut below is a quick summary:

The original Carter 2bbl carburetor was replaced with a remanufactured Carter 2bbl (original will be included)

The points/condenser style distributor was replaced with a remanufactured electronic ignition setup

The original water pump and radiator were replaced (originals will be included)

The original Torqueflite A904 transmission was replaced with a Torqueflite A904 built by TCI (original will be included)

The 8 ¼” rear axle was professionally rebuilt with a new Mopar Suregrip carrier and new stock spec. 2.73 ring and pinion gears

The original fuel tank and fuel tank sending unit were replaced

The original brake shoes and springs were replaced and the drums were cleaned and rotated


Middle of driver's side floor pan is rusted and that whole side will need to be replaced; right now there is sheet metal fastened over the pan as a temporary fix

Small rusted through area on each rear quarter panel where the wheel well begins

Small rusted through area on the driver’s side inner fender beneath the battery tray

Light surface rust on the trunk pan and on the inside of the rear quarters in the trunk

Exterior Condition:


Straight body and frame

All original body panels including hard top roof

Intact glass, umpers, rim, ights, nd badges

Intact factory undercoating

Relatively minor body rust


Passenger's side hood hinge is out of adjustment

Driver's side lower front valance is dented on side of parking light; bumper directly above is slightly bent

Driver's side headlight trim is cracked

Driver's and passenger's side tail light trim is badly cracked

Passenger's side rear wheel arch has a couple small dings above it; largest one is about the size of a thumbprint

Interior Condition:


All of original interior present minus wiper switch knob

Original headliner intact with no tears or sagging

Original gauges/heater/wipers/interior lights are functional

Rear floor pan, ront passenger's side floor pan are solid


Dash pad is cracked on both driver's and passenger's side in multiple places

Top of rear seat has large tear

Passenger's side front seat has large tear on bottom, river's side front seat has large tear on outer top corner

Original AM radio not installed (but will be included)

In summary, ou are looking at a solid, riginal, unning and driving 1971 Dodge Charger. I have the serial number and fender tag decoded, lear documentation of major parts/labor for my period of ownership, clean title, nd all the original parts I removed. It's not easy to find a base model Charger of this vintage that isn't rusted out or parted out. Many possibilities lie ahead for this car, nd I sincerely hope that the new owner will appreciate it and enjoy it as much as I have no matter what direction he or she decides to take it in. If you are serious about making me a reasonable offer, will be happy to send you more pictures or speak with you on the phone. Thanks, att

This should be common sense, ut I will say it anyway: THERE IS NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. I have made a good-faith effort to describe this vehicle and its flaws, ut my description should not be considered comprehensive or 100% accurate.You are buying a well-used, ostly original vehicle that is over 40 years old and in far-from-perfect condition, o set your expectations accordingly.
