XV Challenger


1971 Dodge Challenger

This Challenger convertible began its custom life as an early build from XV Motorsports.  The owner loved the performance upgrades, but wanted a car that was more unique and would better reflect his love of the early sports car era while staying true to its muscle car roots.  We pulled the shaker off his 572ci all aluminum Hemi and replaced it with a Hilborn style 8-stack, retuned the EFI and dialed in the suspension while cleaning up a few things around the car.  After seeing to the mechanical side of things, we modified this wheels to accept a fake "knock-off" spinner, replaced the orignial style top with upgraded materials, and completely restyled the interior using high quality leathers.  For a simple "shave and a haircut," we think this one really stands out in a crowd!
