Muscle Car question

Ok, I have wanted a muscle car for quiet sometime and I have saved enough finally to consider purchasing one. Do you guys think this is a good deal?

1971 Dodge Challenger T/A convertible, v8, Shaker, 426 Hemi, Indy Heads, TT1 Exhaust,4 speed pistol grip, Dana 60 rear, Big Bars, Disc Brakes Front, 10,000 dollars obo.

Is 10,000 a good price for this car?

or here is another one I am considering in my price range, I'd like to know the deal I should go with.

1965 Chevrolet Impala SS convertible, exceptionally rare muscle car in excellent condition with new paint, restored interior and 350 engine with only 10,000 miles.$8,500.

Which one should I go with??

You should get some good responses out of this place. Wonder which one HemiEd would pick...


I don't really know that much about them but how are they both restoration wise? Are there a lot of modern mods or replacements that make them that much off stock?

Also this will be your weekend car right?

correct, I won't be driving it everyday.

From the ads it sounds if they both already have been restored at least partially.

Badgirl,

I am a huge fan of Challengers...

I'm curious though: 426 Hemi? I remember the 440 Hemis and the 383 Hemis (as well as Magnums) ~ are you sure it's a 426?

Luz
i'd be curious to know if they made a 426...

Both are pretty damn nice muscle car models. I am definitly more partial to the Challenger and it wouldnt have the issues associated with owning a 40 yr old drop top.

The restoration/condition is the big key and I dont really know why I am responding since I don't exactly know shit about owning them but I am somehow drawn to car threads.

In a good restoration there wouldn't be any issues associated with owning a 40 yr old drop top.

From the pics the Challenger looks great,

The Challenger as well as the Impala are both convertibles by the way

Good point. One of the few I can think of that I have actually ridden in a decent amout of times was an old Cutlass. Though it had a pretty expensive and complete restoration job done.

I may be wrong in assuming this but it seems like it takes a decent amount to make them right?

She's in the right price neighborhood for a decent restoration...not show quality, but I don't think that's what she is looking for.
