Have you ever wanted a pristine perfectly preserved all original vintage Drag Race Mopar? Not Restored! This excellently PRESERVED NHRA Drag Race T/A Challenger. Yes it is a pristine 100% rust free mint condition 3000 original mile work of art, and piece of history. The Gypsy Challenger T/A was purchased new right off the show room floor here in Boise Idaho, and was immediately prepared for drag racing. Coletti Racing Enterprises of Hillsboro, Oregon created this F Stock automatic that raced with the original 6 Pack setup from the factory. She has 22 actual documented Race Miles from various Northwest Race tracks where it netted 3 national records in about a 1 and ½ year time span. The original ET slips such as a 12.12 pass at 111.11 in July 1971. We also have historical photos showing her dialed at 12.02 while racing in Seattle, WA. In March of 2004 33 years later that photo was duplicated in the same building, the same room even, now in a color photo.
Documentation includes the original title, dealer window sticker, sales paperwork, Coletti Racing Enterprises brochure and info along with the original receipts from its original build for racing. There is so much history and information about this car, she still wears its original and only license plate from new. The complete story of the "Gypsy" was featured in the February 2004 issue of Mopar Collectors Guide. This car has an intriguing story to say the least, and we have it all. The folders are thick. If you are looking more than a pretty face, a real artifact of muscle car history, this is the one.
