The Charger underwent near-revolutionary change in 1971, coupling a sleek redesigned body shell with an amazing plethora of optional equipment. The example offered here was the embodiment of the more exclusive gentleman’s-market the Charger R/T was designed for—stylish, powerful and refined. The latter fact is a direct result of the rare factory Gunmetal Metallic paint over a black-and-charcoal interior color combination; this iron-clad shine is only improved by the documented R/T side stripe and vinyl top deletes, which reveal subtle bodylines that are otherwise hidden on a 1971 Charger R/T. This car further blends together with the trademark dual-headlamp grille and extra-cost bumperettes. Of course, the R/T tag meant something, in this case being the 440/390 HP Six Pack engine, which is the matching-numbers original under the hood of this car. Fresh air came in via the toothy Ramcharger-logo’ed fresh Air Grabber trap door on the hood, which rose in warning via engine vacuum. This powerplant in turn is backed by the heavy-duty A727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission. Once inside, the upscale nature of this R/T continues with the matched interior components, including two-tone door panels with wood-grain accenting, charcoal gray bucket seats, a center console with Slap-Stik, a podded dash assembly and a radio. Handling on this car is amply aided by both power steering and brakes, with it still riding on correct Magnum 500 premium rims and Goodyear Polyglas tires. During its prior ownership of John Hadgis, Restorations by Julius did a full refreshing on this car, which features original sheet metal and two broadcast sheets for documentation. More recently, the Wellborn Museum contracted Roger Gibson to detail the suspension, chassis, driveline and undercarriage as well. Part of the museum’s collection since 2008, this iron horse may not be as flashy as some of the final-year Six Pack machines were, but it was not meant to be. At home with banker or brawler, consider this to be a man’s car with manners. Indeed, this car summarizes the untold side of America’s fixation with powerful automobiles.
