Among Mopar enthusiasts the Challenger R/T stands near the king of the hill on the drag strip or road course. With a 426 Hemi under the hood pumping out 425 horsepower, few would dispute the R/T’s ability to pounce when asked to. The dual hood scoops are functional, forcing air into the engine bay, although the true performance enhancement was the “Shaker” hood option that protruded through the hood and attached directly to the air-cleaner. Externally, you can also tell an R/T 426 by its wider fenders, rolled to accommodate the 15-inch wheel option. On the inside, the trademark simulated walnut three-spoke steering wheel and Hurst pistol-grip shifter make an unforgettable impression. As a package, the Challenger R/T has enough appeal to make a Mopar lover out of anyone.
