This year the Thirteen Twenty shop is refreshing a two year old build of a 1971 Challenger convertible. This car originally came into the shop as a 318 car and was built as an R/T clone, with a 420 horsepower 440 and 727 transmission. The rear axle was narrowed to accommodate a 19x10.5” wheel and 305mm tire. This car was repainted in its original FC7 Plum Crazy paint, and an R/T Hood was added along with a T/A style spoiler. The car returned this year to receive a Gen 3 Hemi, stroked to 6.5 litres with approximately 600HP. The firewall and engine compartment will be smoothed and repainted. Front suspension has been swapped to a C4 corvette suspension with air ride, disc brakes, and rack n pinion steering. The interior and convertible top are being upgraded to black, with carbon fiber accents and digital gauges.
For SEMA 2018, well know builder Andrew Lowe, stepped away from his normal canvas of lifted trucks into the world of modern muscle cars. Working with Chrysler they opted base the build on a 2018 Challenger T/A 392. Starting with a need to get the car lower to the ground, the stock suspension was trashed and replaced with a full air suspension kit from Air Lift Performance, mated to compressors and holding tanks from Flo Air Ride, installed at ALL Out Offroad by Casey Foster Stiffening the ride further are Hellwig swaybars and end links. With the car lower to the pavement, new staggered 22 inch wheels were provided by American Racing and wrapped with Nitto Invo tires. >From there the focus switched to the engine where a Magnusson supercharger was added, tuned by Superchips, along with a Mishimoto radiator and full Hurst exhaust system. To aid in the cooling, the factory front clip was ditched and replaced with a Demon front end, along with custom headlights from Retroshop and Diode Dynamics. To top off the look under the hood a trim piece from Quiet Ride Solutions was custom made and applied under the hood.
Inside the car a full Kicker audio system was added and a rear strut cage built and powdercoated with products from Prismatic Powders.
To finish off the build cut vinyl decals from Deluxe Garage 281 were added and select pieces were painted by Thad Rucker Designs using Axalta products
