The Challenger R/T tribute is an original Los Angeles built FJ5 Sublime E-body  that was found in a parking lot for sale in LA in 1991 with it's original 318 drivetrain.    A friend of my family purchased the car and had it transported back to PA where it went thru a driver restoration and a 440/727/8 3/4 conversion.   The original owner ordered the car for his wife and they had a cottage in upstate CA and this is the car they used for their weekend getaways.   He owned an automotive repair facility where they did performance modifications and rust proofing so he stayed on top of the maintenance thru its sale in '91.   Since then the following has been completed and only 2600 miles has been put on the car since '91.   86K original mile car.   The previous owner had 6 cars to choose from therefore it wasn't driven much.   Since acquiring the car I completed a lot of detailing & general maintenance to make this car a dependable and enjoyable street machine and cruiser.

This car runs very strong with its drivetrain package and motors down the highway straight and with ease

The Challenger sounds amazing and you can hear the compression and camshaft thru the awesome sounding Dynomax mufflers and TTI exhaust.

I'd have no problem jumping in this car and driving it anywhere.

 I evaluate this car a very nice #2 driver quality Challenger.   The undercarriage is rust free but yet not detailed enough to worry about getting caught in the rain.   Drive it. enjoy it. have fun with it.

I have described this vehicle to the best of my ability but I encourage anyone who may be interested to come look at this wonderful sublime Challenger for themselves.   Words can't describe how much time and investment have been put into this car but everyone's interpretation is different.   I welcome any inspectors that you'd like to take a look at the vehicle as well.   Please note this is not a concourse restored car and it's 48 years old therefore it's sold in as is condition with no warranty.   Please note the deposit within 24 hours and the remaining balance via wire transfer or cash in person.    Checks are accepted but vehicle will not be released until check is processed and return grace period is rendered.   I am also willing to work with a shipping company on pick-up.
