The Dodge Challenger continues to be the most popular two-door muscle car on the market right now. With the quickest, fastest, and most powerful offerings in the segment, there is one thing that the Challenger doesn’t offer that the competitors do – a convertible variant.
The lack of a ragtop offering has a few aftermarket companies creating alternatives for open-air enthusiasts. Such companies like Drop Top Customs by Convertible Builders Inc., of High Springs, Florida have built a number of Challenger convertibles over the past decade and a half. The end results have many enthusiasts wondering why Dodge//SRT hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon.
One of their finer examples is this 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody Convertible, which is 1 of 3 converted by the Florida aftermarket custom shop. This particular vehicle is headed to the Mecum auction in Dallas, Texas this next month.
The Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye comes with the awesome 6.2-liter HEMI® HELLCAT H.O. V8 cranking out 797 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to an 8-speed 8HP90 automatic transmission. This car features the optional 3.09 rear axle ratio, optional orange Brembo® brake calipers, and the optional $17,000 SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody (27Q) package.
The car was purchased new in June of 2019 and was altered to a convertible by Drop Top Customs in October 2019.
Currently, the one-owner SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody convertible only has 480 miles on the odometer.
Painted in the popular Go ManGo high-impact exterior color, the car features custom white interior leather seats and a white-colored vinyl top. The car recently took top-3 honors at the Mopars in the Park 2020 event.
The car will cross the auction block on Saturday, September 11th, 2021 at the Mecum Dallas event. Those who are wishing to bid on this vehicle can visit the Mecum page and place their bids on that day.
