Barn Find Hemi Challenger!
Yes you read that right, they are still out there because this is a Barn Find Hemi Challenger found in 2013 😯
I mean this is a dream find for any Mopar fan to have found. Seriously to have a Challenger that even though it has a bad quarter and the bottom of the front fenders have rot it’s an incredible survivor find! Yes the drivers front seat has a rip big whoop, everything else is all just a surface rust and aftermarket instead of original rims. Even the original factory exhaust geez 🙂
My last 71 RT challenger had a 440 instead of the 340 it came with along with the 727 instead of the four-speed so this car has me beat by a mile!
However looking at what this car is and it’s value is all fine. Now if I was going to make a clone so to speak of this car I am not so sure how I would go about doing it these days 😕
So say I could find a decent Challenger or even Cuda shell. Would I want to hunt down a real Hemi block at a swapmeet or by one of Mopars new castings? Either way you have a Elephant in weight in the front of your car now. Sure it will drop jaws when you pop the hood at the car shows but, it it all that 😕
If you have a GM or even a Fox Body Ford product one the newest things to do is put a LQ4 or LSX engine in the car and boost it. You will het tons of Horsepower and do it on the cheap to boot. I have a friend that has a Barracuda and he put a new gen Hemi into it with a 6 Pack carb setup on it and it makes some serious HP 😯 Now think if you put some boost into it what you could get out of it and at less weight too 🙂
