The combination of our extensive docket that includes vehicles from this great American automaker, along with their interactive exhibit and ‘Thrill Rides’ that will run throughout the nine-day event, help to make Barrett-Jackson the ultimate automotive lifestyle experience for the entire family.”
Among the anticipated Dodge vehicles crossing the block is a genuine, documented and unrestored 1971 HEMI Challenger (Lot #1421) powered by a 426ci HEMI engine with a pistol-grip 4-speed manual transmission. It is one of 70 HEMI Challengers produced that year and features an A34 Super Trak Pak, power brakes and bucket seats. A rare red with black interior 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona (Lot #1369) is one of 503 produced in early summer 1969 for the first NASCAR race at Talladega.

The pickup, a staple of Dodge history, will also feature prominently at Scottsdale, including a 1941 Dodge Power Wagon (Lot #1311.1). The custom-built Military Power Wagon is nicknamed “Full Metal Jacket,” and features smooth seams and a full custom Brazilian hardwood bed accented by hand-brushed nickel.

“From the great selection of trucks to the incredible ’71 HEMI Challenger, this year’s docket represents some of the best vehicles from Dodge’s storied history,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “The introduction of the HEMI engine created a dramatic shift in the industry that helped propel Dodge to new heights, and we continue to see that impact today.
