1971 Dodge Challenger – Time Capsule. Car was parked in a clean dry garage since the 1980’s, just recently put back on the road. Very rare find. BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL butterscotch paint. 318 V8 runs great. 77k original miles – extremely well documented. Original owner even left his beach towel in the trunk along with glove box and console contents from the 70’s & 80’s. Runs and drives VERY well. Even the AM radio works…talk about nostalgia! It is absolutely amazing to drive this beautiful car around. New tires, wheels and brakes plus full maintenance service with correct parts and fluids. The pictures speak for themselves. Original rust free dry storage California car. Car has been in the Glendale California area for close to FIFTY YEARS. The paint and all panels are original and unrestored. A few dings, scratches and small dents from having items stored on the hood and roof. No serious damage, and would be a good candidate for paintless ding removal. Very difficult to find a car in this amazing original condition. ****Car is also for sale locally, I reserve the right to end the auction early. Extra parts included: original radiator and new muffler to replace original which is still on the car.
