Genuine Challenger T/A with a very desirable factory 4-speed! Also highly desirable factory red with red interior. This special T/A underwent a rotisserie restoration to factory specs.

Why is a T/A so special? They were a very limited production, high performance car based on Dodge's Trans Am race car. Only 1,411 automatics and 989 4-speeds were ever made. It was only a 1 year production. It's not just a 340 car with a 6 pack and fancy decals slapped on it. The engine blocks were .....
actually unique to this car, built stronger. It also has special heads, modified valve train and 3 holley carbs. The burnt fuel is let out through a low restriction exhaust that exits in front of each rear tire. The rear tires are taller to give clearance to the side exhaust which also gives the car a cool stance. Other features include a Sure Grip rear, Upgraded brakes with disc in front, rallye suspension, quick ratio steering and performance tires on 15x7 wheels. It also features a light weight fiberglass hood in flat black to eliminate glare to the driver with an air intake scoop and racing pins. Special stripes, emblems, pop up gas cap, racing mirror, blacked out grill and a dove tail spoiler make it look the part.

The fiberglass ram air hood is in good shape, doors shut real nice. It has the chin spoilers and dovetail in back. The factory Bright Red paint has a smooth, glossy finish. It has the correct T/A striping. The vinyl top is excellent. The chrome is shiny, stainless is straight. This is the only car I know of that came from the factory with staggered size tires, the rear tire is a taller to give more clearance for the side exhaust.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
