Will before you go on to check out the progress on the Charger you might want to click here to see the broadcast sheet. Or maybe you'd like to see what Galen Govier sends you when you join the Chrysler Registry by clicking here. Alan would also like know if anybody has additional information about the original dealership or owner of this car...remember it was bought new in New Brunswick...to email him at email@example.com . In the time it has taken me to get this webpage together, Alan has already assembled a good part of the car...what does that say about me????????
Well there you have it, an 18 month restoration is now completed...looks like you did a awesome job Alan!!! Where do you want me to send my Super Bee?
I'd love it to turn out that nice...
The car went together fairly smooth. I had to get another stripe kit last minute because the one that came with the car when I bought it turned out to be the wrong shade of black and it was also 18 fricken years old!
Other than a few minor leaks and some electrical gremlins, which were to be expected, the car fired right up and purrs like a kitten! I drove it to the gas station on Saturday March 2nd 2002...It goes like a bat out hell!
Car was finished for Performance World Car Show in Toronto on March 8, 9, 10 2002.

Here's a picture of the car taken in 1976:
1 of 98 Six Pack auto 1971 Charger R/T's. Actually the 98 is the amount of cars that were sold new in the United States; there were an aditional 17 sold new in Canada so it would be 1 of 115 sold new in North America. The car has a striking colour combo FE5 Bright Red paint with black stripes and white bucket interior. This well optioned car was obviously ordered to go fast and still look great. It is fairly uncommon to find Super Trak Pack car with the automatic tranny. I will let Alan tell you the story his rare Charger R/T.
The Charger is an original six pack car with all the numbers still matching,
broadcast sheet and fender tags still intact. It spent all of it's life in New
Brunswick until 1999 when a transmission expert from Georgetown Ontario
named Dave bought it and went down east to bring it home. He immediately
sold it to a well known Mopar guy from Hamilton named Les. Les put the car
in storage and collected parts for about a year. I bought it with a parts car in
Sept. 2000 and immediately started restoring it.
I found three previous owners who all still live in NB. The guy who sold it to
Dave really misses it and had always wanted to restore the car himself, but
was forced to sell it when he had marriage problems. He and I are in steady
contact today and he wants to be first in line when I sell it.
The paper trail ends in 1977 when Dalbert bought the car from a used car lot.
It is thought to have been sold new at Moncton Dodge NB.
I did a complete concourse style resto with the underside left in primer/overspray with undercoating.
The original options include...
440 six pack
4:10 dana super track pack
front and rear bumper guards
air grabber hood
dual painted mirrors
wheel lip mouldings
six-way adjustable drivers seat
rear window defrost
pedal dress up kit
That's about it. There may be some things I forgot, however everything is legit
and on the broadcast sheet.
