Exterior Color PURPLE
Interior Color BLACK
Cylinders 8
Engine Size 340
Transmission 4-SPEED MANUAL
This Challenger has a rare A66 340 performance package which is essentially an R/T without the big block motor. Even rarer is the combination of the performance package, the factory 4-speed manual transmission and the FC7 Plum Crazy metallic paint. To start out, we removed the vinyl top and had a stunning base coat/clear coat paint job applied and had it sanded and polished to a mirror finish, re-chromed both bumpers and bumperettes, replaced or restored all the exterior trim including the mirrors, door handles, lock cylinders, front and rear trim, grille, headlights bezels and tail light lenses. The wheels are restored and the tires are new. The interior has new Legendary seat covers front and rear, new carpet, new floor mats, new package tray, new wiring harness from front to rear, rebuilt all the window guides and rebuilt all the Rallye gauges. We had the entire suspension rebuilt, front and rear brakes rebuilt, recored the radiator, replaced the brake booster and starter, had the wiper motor rebuilt, replaced the axle bearings, had the trunk repainted, installed a new trunk mat and trunk divider, plus lots of other odds and ends that I forgot about but remember that they cost a small fortune. Fortunately the motor and transmission always ran like a champ and we did not need to do much. The motor is not the original numbers matching motor but is correct for the car.
