Fast Facts
1971 Dodge Charger R/T
Rob Vollaro, New, Jersey

Mopar Power

Engine: The factory Hemi was replaced with a Race Hemi that was rebuilt to Super Stock specifications. Inside the 1968 block, compression comes in at 12.5:1 with the addition of forged pistons. A new, larger duration and lift cam replaced the factory, solid lifter 284/284 .467/.473 Hemi cam. Rob bought the car with a Cross Ram intake that had twin Holley 750 four-barrels bolted to it -- just like the original Super Stock cars. He replaced this intake assembly with an Edelbrock Rat Roaster and a pair of factory Hemi carburetors. The exhaust uses the stock Hemi headers dumping into 3-inch Flowmasters with turndowns before the rear axle.
Transmission: Robert Severino in New Jersey, rebuilt the TorqueFlite automatic. It's now a reverse manual-shift and uses a factory Hemi converter and Slap Stick shifter.
Rearend: A Dana 60 with 4.88 gears and Sure Grip differential.

Sure Grip

Suspension: Original R/T suspension with Super Stock springs our back.
Brakes: Manual discs and drums.
Wheels/Tires: Factory 15x7 Rally wheels wearing F60 front tires (the original set) and H60 rear tires.

High Impact

Paint/Body: Rob claims his car to be 75-percent original paint. There was just some minor work to the fender and the vinyl top was reinstalled.
Interior: Inside is all original interior parts with additional AutoMeter and SunPro gauges to add a bit more precision to the dash.
