Take A Trip Back In Time With Carlisle’s Retro Chrysler Dealership


No, you’ve not stepped back into another dimension of time. Even though the images appear to be of a Dodge dealership from the Nixon era, they were in fact taken today. While at the All-Chrysler Nationals, we temporarily travelled back in time to when you could drive a brand new 1971 Dodge Charger R/T off the dealer lot. “Why yes sir, we have both the 440 Six Pack and 426 HEMI in stock for immediate delivery.” If only we could go back and purchase that Challenger R/T or Demon 340 from 1971. That’s why the folks at the Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals recreated that golden era showroom shopping for your favorite Scat Pack Dodge or Plymouth Rapid Transit muscle. Even though there is no time machine that can take us back those heady times, our 2011 R/T and SRT8 lineup  can still burn some rubber and peel your eyeball lids back!

    My Dad was a mechanic @ a dealership in Ellensberg, Wa in ’68-71. I spent allot of time after school in the show room and out on the lot (they didn’t keep em locked up like they do now) driving all the chargers, challengers, demon’s and any thing else that caught my eye. I was only 13-15 at the time so these trips were in my head, but they were real enough for me at the time. One Hemi Challenger, Plum Crazy with Black Vinyl top, 4 speed Pistol Grip, was sold and came back in with bent shift forks, wounder how that happened? My Dad worked on allot of stuff I broke! Thanks ofr the Flash Back!

    This is a tough one.  71 Charger,  69 or 70 RoadRunner, Or the SuperBird or Daytona. 
    How do you honestly answer this with one vehicle??

    My very first brand new car was a 1967 Dodge Charger we took her off the show room floor in Sept. 1966 and she took us everywhere for over 30 years.  Never had a problem and only things replaced were tires, batteries, hoses, and belts. Except for normal regular upkeep, oil changes & tune-ups, she never cost us a nickel, and she never failed to get us where we wanted to go. The whole family totally loved that car. Then all those years later I sold her to someone who could restore her to her finest condition which I couldn’t afford to do – being a widow by then – and to my knowledge she is still running and mostly all original.  Probably in some of the car shows.  But our family haven’t driven anything but a Dodge since then, although not always a Charger

    I think it was a 68 or 69 Challenger, My Dads cousin bought it new, and to my knowledge still has it. Mint condition, along with a 63 Buick special convertible. Also bought new. Thats how cars should be kept. Why do we make them disposable.

    1964 Dodge Charger with any big block of that time period, 4-speed on the floor with the limited slip differential. I think it was a concept with only a handful made.

    I guess I am lucky,I have a 68 Charger R/T,68 Chrysler 300 2 dr 440 TNT (excellerates same as 68 Charger mostly stock 440 runs mid – low 12’s) A freshly done,again 71 Challenger R/T 440 6bbl (clone from my later 70’s Chally) a later 70’s 1978 Magnum GT 400.Solid original 69 Charger 383 Magnum,had these cars for years and are keepers..Many others I bought and sold over they years ,but have several more solid complete cars as my next projects..I know around here in the early 90’s still it was like the 60’s/70’s at the not so legal drags in rural and industrial areas,it was all old cars tons of Mopar’s,and brand X american muscle,so I kind of know what it was to live back in the day and race around.But to go to a dealer and order a brand new 68 Charger R/T would be great,I guess going to a dealer today and ordering a 2012 Challenger SRT would be great as well…
