The good folks at Dream Giveaway continue to find the best Mopars that roamed the highways and byways. The latest promotion is a well-optioned, high-impact colored 1971 Dodge Demon. The beautifully restored Demon has a 340 four-barrel V8 engine under the twin scooped hood, dual exhaust, Rallye suspension, heavy-duty shocks, E70x14 bias-ply tires, a wood-grained instrument panel, and black colored performance and deck panel stripes, which contrast with the Citron Yella perfectly.
Spartan Dodge in San Jose, California, sold the Demon for $3,863.05. The original purchaser ordered twenty factory options for the Demon to achieve a tally of $1000 over the base price. Some basic options on the Demon included vinyl bucket seats, the Moulding Group, a Torqueflite automatic transmission, a Sure-Grip differential, hood scoops, and hood pins.
However, a few options were rare, especially on an A-body. The Demon was ordered with an exhaust emission control package, an AM/FM radio with a cassette player, a microphone tape recorder, and undercoating. The emission control package made sense for a California vehicle, but the undercoating is a surprise.
Interestingly, the Demon was featured in the July 1999 High Performance Mopar magazine and Johnny Lightning cast 10,000 1:64 scale versions of the Demon as part of its “Cover Car” feature car series. A sealed Johnny Lightning model car will be part of the winning package. Furthermore, the multiple awards and show trophies the Demon earned over the years are included.
On February 1, 2023, Dream Giveaway started accepting donations for tickets to win the Demon. Correspondingly, the winner gets $5,500 to pay the taxes. As a unique offer to readers of Mopar Connection Magazine, Dream Giveaway is offering double tickets for every $25 spent (or more) as well as encouraging all to use promo code “MOPARCONNECTION” when entering using this link.
The giveaway will be at the Mopars with Big Daddy car show later this year. Each dollar donated to win the Demon goes to New Beginning Children’s Homes (NBCH). Look for a more in-depth feature on the Demon in the coming weeks.
