Want it in a package that doesn't require red ropes and a car bubble? Well, as the old saying goes: Car culture starts where the assembly line stops. And now that more and more authentic, numbers-matching Hemi cars are being confined to private collections, enthusiasts are filling the void with creations like this killer Challenger resto-mod. The beneficiary of a recent, professional restoration, this award-winning drop-top wraps a 472 cubic inch Mopar Performance Hemi in Viper Orange Pearl aesthetics that'll turn heads and drop jaws wherever the car goes. If you've always dreamed of owning a storied Hemi muscle car, but don't want the inherent stress that comes with authenticity, here's the perfect solution! BODYWORK/TRIM Claiming a First in Class at the Carlisle Mopar Nationals, this vivid Dodge is the beneficiary of a high quality, ground-up restoration that was completed by Rennecker's Collision and Restoration of Barry, Illinois. The build began with a solid, 318-powered fuselage, which was thoroughly stripped, lovingly sanded and massaged to a level that's much nicer than showroom condition. With that body correctly aligned, and its intimidating, slab-sided ambiance fully reconstructed, smooth Viper Orange 2-stage was doused with extra pearl and dressed in subtle black trimmings. And today this razor-sharp E-Body sits as an ultra-straight, fully detailed reminder of just how great Detroit truly is! Wearing lines that originated on Chrysler designer Carl Cameron's famous Charger Turbine Concept, this classic cruiser makes a distinctly MoPar styling statement from virtually every angle. At the front of the car, a 1970-exclusive grille hangs a flashy Challenger R/T script between HID headlights, halogen parking lamps, a straight bumper and factory chin spoilers. Behind that grille, a familiar shaker hood, complete with a black scoop, 426 HEMI badges and a small fratzog emblem, founds smoked glass beneath power Haartz Stayfast cloth. At the sides of that hood, prominent fenders hang flush door handles and chrome-trimmed marker lamps below body-matched sport mirrors and a stylish 'pit stop' fuel filler. And at the back of those fenders, a stainless-trimmed valance props a simple spoiler on body-width, DODGE branded taillights, a second straight bumper and correct, quad-outlet exhaust tips. ENGINE When building a resto-mod, it's both tempting and easy to find a wrecked LX or LY car, jerk its modern, Gen III Hemi and call your project done. While that's a smart and reliable way to enjoy any classic, it kind of kills the authentic experience of owning a true, old school pavement pounder. Under the hood of this hot drop-top, you'll find a killer Mopar Performance Hemi that, thanks to porting, polishing, balancing, blueprinting and a massive 472 cubic inch displacement, makes a whopping 550 horsepower! At the top of the monster motor, proven Edelbrock 625s sip Sinclair through fresh stainless fuel lines. At the base of those carbs, a Hemi Orange intake props a familiar points distributor between black Mopar HEMI valve covers and Pentastar-branded breathers. At the sides of that intake, fire travels via eight Mopar 8mm plug wires, which snake around ceramic-coated TTI headers. Those headers are fed by a high quality Comp cam. That cam is spun, along with a polis
