1971 Dodge Challenger Convertible

This triple white 1971 Dodge Challenger Convertible was the recent recipient of an extensive rotisserie restoration.

We think you’ll agree it looks really cool – however, it is worth noting not a single Challenger convertible left the factory that way during the 1971 model year as the R/T was only available in 2-door hardtop form.

A 1971 Challenger Convertible was used as the pace car for the 55th Indianapolis 500.

The 1971 Challenger sat on a 110″ wheelbase, 191.3″ total length and 76.3″ wide.

The simulated woodgrain on the Challenger’s dash and center console was also found in the door panels. All-vinyl bucket seats with integral head restraints were standard. The convertible is also equipped with front courtesy lights.

In keeping with the R/T upgrade you’ll find an immaculately presented 383 cubic inch Magnum V8 under the hood.

Dodge produced just 2,165 Challenger convertibles for the 1971 model year with prices starting at $3,105 for the 198 cubic inch slant six with the 318 V8 starting at $3,207.

Incredibly, this was to be the last Dodge convertible available until the early eighties.
