The center of attention is the 1971 Super Bee Charger and 1969 Charger R/T; The surprise is how it looks today and how it started saving these legendary muscle cars.
Get ready to rescue two classic muscle cars
After a trip through neighboring Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Collins crew arrives at the home of salesman Thomas. Anticipating a difficult payback, Collins expresses his thoughts and action plan.
Lifting a pair of garage doors reveals the duo of the shipper, who will soon be headed to Texas.
While many of Collins’ rescues center around unusual extractions, this adventure involves minimal effort.
So, after removing some debris and dealing with old tires, Dodges get rid of with the least amount of struggle.
We learn one trick of the trade, a locked front wheel in a 1969 charger is overcome by placing a cafeteria tray under the tire: With this clever hack, the car slides easily into the parking trailer.
Collins’ Latest Car: 1971 Dodge Charger Super B
Unlike previous bailouts, Collins doesn’t offer many history lessons on the Super B Charger. Perhaps because it’s missing a trim panel, there isn’t a lot of official information to look at. We know that it has an automatic transmission, and, according to the seller, the white paint is original – the car has been in the garage for 33 years.
1971 was the first year of the third generation Charger; The design of the coke bottle in the previous version was transformed into a car with larger sides to give a more aggressive look.
The Super Bee variant debuted in the 1960s, and in 1971 Dodge positioned it as a more wallet-friendly charger model, and a 1971 MSRP of $3,271 was equivalent to today $22,914, about what you’d pay for a new base Honda Civic.
Duo Part Two: 1969 Dodge Charger R/T
There’s more info about the 1969 Supercharger. Under the hood is a 440-cubic-inch Magnum V-8 engine initially rated at 375 hp and mated to an automatic gearbox.
It’s the same engine, though not as powerful, as what was used on most versions of the legendary 1969 Daytona Charger.
This latest addition to Collins’ garage has a patchwork of paint, including an apparently failed attempt to convert the car into a General Lee version.
Also, in the SMH moment, viewers learn that a previous owner replaced a gas tank by hacking into the trunk floor – in short, this is a car that would require hard efforts to restore it to its former glory.
