In the latest episode of Roadkill, Finnegan and Freiburger drop a Hellcat drivetrain in the General Mayhem in preparation for an 1/8 mile challenge with Gas Monkey. Video after the jump!
The Good: 1971 Cuda, numbers matching 340, 4 speed, shaker hood, new AMD panels included. The Bad: The pictures, the rust, the interior. Did we mention the pictures? The Ugly: The price, $35,001 (psychological pricing be damned). Barn Finds located this car and it’s optimistic owner on Craigslist. More pics after the jump.
When asked what a car is worth, a common response is “It’s worth whatever somebody is willing to pay for it”. When the Hellcat was first released to the motoring world, people were shocked, twice; once for Dodge producing a 707 hp car and again when the starting price of $60,990 was announced. With supply limited, speculators moved in, buying Hellcats to flip for an easy profit. Resale prices hitting six figures were not unheard of. Now that a year has passed and the hype has settled a bit, just what is a 2015 Challenger Hellcat worth? Still more than the sticker? Mercum recently auctioned this 2015 B5 blue, 6 speed Challenger Hellcat with only 13 miles on the odometer. The winning bid was $73,000.
AutoNation recently licensed the Road Runner from Warner Brothers. Everyone’s favorite bird makes an appearance in AutoNation’s new Drive Pink campaign (after the jump).
The Road Runner was created for Warner Brothers back in 1948 and was later licensed to Plymouth in 1968 for the legendary/affordable muscle car (for a reported sum of $50,000). We are guessing that AutoNation paid a bit more for the privilege.
Ralph Gilles is selling his 2002 Dodge Viper RT/10 convertible. Gilles is the car’s second owner, having purchased it less than year ago. Neither owner exactly racked up the miles as the car has only 3474 miles. Asking price is $52,995. Find more info at Street Legal TV. More pics after the jump!
Barn Finds located this 1968 Road Runner on Craigslist. The seller does not provide much detail on this originally 383 powered four speed car other than having a clear title. There appears to be an engine in there (in both the engine compartment and interior). The asking price is $3000. Is it worth it? Find the Craigslist ad here. More pics after the jump!
Hot Rod Garage pulled the diesel powertrain from a 1995 Ram 2500 and dropped it in a 1973 D200. They then turned their attention to power output with the goal of doubling both the horsepower and torque of the Cummins 12 valve engine. Were they successful? Find both episodes after the jump!
