How many 1971 Dodge Challenger Convertible were produced with shaker hood

Asked by Apr 25, 2007 at 11:00 AM about the 1971 Dodge Challenger

Question type: General

1971 Dodge Challenger convertible with shaker hood, 383 Magnum, 4 speed, pistol grip and spoiler kit. I know several convertibles were made and several shaker hoods, but the combination of both seems to be rare. I haven't found a way to factor in the shaker hood.

Dear Carly-- I am having trouble breaking down the production numbers to the degree you ask. The best I can tell you is that only 1,857 Dodge Challenger convertibles were built in 1971. I can't find how many had the Shaker hood. Good luck from Bovan.

Thanks Bovan, but this doesn't really help. I narrowed it down to #of convertibles with 383 magnum, 4 sp. just can't factor in the shaker. Thanks


Carly, In Galen Goviers Chrystler Corp. Production Option Code Book it has only 41 engine code "N", 300hp 383's with the 4 speed in a convertible. There is no breakdown as to how many were code N96 Shaker. Hope this helps. Tom1971

Here is a link that puts the number at 11 as well: It says on there that 11 Convertibles were made with the shaker hood for the challenger in 1971 (11 JH Convertibles (no R/T verts in 71)).

By chance would your car happen to be the 383 shaker red paint with white interior, white vinyl top, black shaker bubble, one owner car?

I, for once, luckily still hold on to a Challenger, 383 Ci, 4-speed, shaker, blue on blue

Eventhough I was out of playing car for 15 years, but luckily enough to hold on to the rag. If I remember correctly, the production was 12 rag with that feature but one with crushed and still only 11 left.
