Mecum Kissimmee 2015 Preview – 1971 Dodge Hemi Charger RT – Lot R216


The time has come.

Charger-palooza today with eight back-to-back posts of some of the amazing Mopar machines liberated from the Wellborn Musclecar Museum Collection.


Just kidding. These cars lived a happy and pristine life in the Wellborn Museum.

As true collector pieces, though, they may not have been doing as many stoplight dragraces as the badges intended.

Sunny conditions and cost-no-object acquisition and restorations by the Wellborn Collection means that these Chargers are arguably the world’s finest.
