    My name is Mark and I own a numbers matching 1971 Challenger R/T 383. 78,000 original miles. I bought this car back around 1993 for $3500.00 and have had it ever since. It's been one of the best investments I've ever made. It's going in the shop for a front disc brake conversion soon. Hope to learn a lot from everyone and make friends. No car like Mopar! :usflag: 20170915_140033.jpg

    Welcome to the site from the Motor City! Interesting paint treatment on the tops of the fenders, I like it!:thumbsup:
    Did you restore that beauty?

    :welcome: from New Jersey
    Nice 71 Challenger, like the Hemi orange paint and interior.
    Are you also a pilot?

    I ended up with the Leeds kit for stock 14" wheels. I wanted to keep my stock Rallye wheels.

    Pretty much. I have done very little to it except a full dash restore/recover job, new fuel tank, new carb ... and that dash was a J-O-B .... still wrestling with wiring and different little lights not working but the gauges all work.
