Only its second owner, Glen Hane of Des Plaines bought the Challenger nearly 40 years ago when he was 18.

Hane's restoration took six years to complete.

The Dodge's 340-cubic-inch V-8 stars in a numbers-matching drivetrain.

Hane used old stock parts, including fenders he purchased in the 1970s, to restore his Challenger.

The factory 1971 Light Gunmetal paint color is rare, with only 22 known to be sold in this hue.

About this Article

Piloting muscle cars isn't for the faint of heart. In the 1960s and early '70s, many new owners quickly realized after leaving the dealership that their new V-8 bruiser was a bit too much for them to handle. That's how Glen Hane was able to scoop up his 1971 Dodge Challenger just two years after it was initially sold.
