This 1971 4-speed Hemi Challenger R/T sold new in Basel-Stadt Switzerland
(This is the only export spec '71 Hemi Challenger R/T known to exist).
It never left Europe until making the journey last year to it's new owner
in North America (who plans to debut the Challenger at this years' MCACN show).

This car has been shown here before, but little, if any of its colorful history. (it wore off-road tires & was used as a "dune buggy" by its 2nd owners).

This 2011 MCACN post on the Yenko.net forum from Charlie Lillard (as told by the cars' owner, Wade Ogle) is a great read.

1969 was the last year for redline tires. The 1970 Swinger 340 came standard with E70x14 BSW. WSW or RWL were optional at $26.35 each. This was an improvement over the D70s that the 1969 model used.
