Default Body in White being sold

Don't like the interior of the Challenger? Tired of people giving you a hard time about how much it weighs? They're now selling the body in white. 5500 + Freight. When I ran the calculator the freight was about a grand. So....all you need then is a chassis, some seats, a drivetrain, fuel system, engine, suspension etc.

If you weld up a tube frame.....

I guess this is one way of lightening your new Challenger:

This 2010 Challenger body in white is being offered by an after market supplier at $6,000.00 (Right now they are selling them for $5,500.00).

The company is located in SC, however, I wonder if you can go directly to the factory and buy one since that is where this company has to get them. And I also wonder how long they will be available, as in the past, the factory would only offer bodies in white for a short period of time near the beginning of the production year so as not to effect the regular production line.

If you remember, back in the day the factories would offer bodies in white for a short period of time to racers, so that they didn't have to buy a new complete vehicle, only to strip it down and discard most of in order just to get a plain body to build their racers.

Below is from the companies web page:

Description

Want to build your own performance driven Dodge Challenger race car?

Here is your chance to start off with a new virgin body shell of a 2010 Dodge Challenger right from the production lines. No waste from donor cars, or expensive repairs from collision salvage cars, a brand new fresh body shell. These come with hood, fenders, doors, and trunk lid as the only items bolted to the body shell. These are the ideal way to start your road race or drag race car, less expensive, and much quicker.

This body shell does not come with any VIN (vehicle identification number) and therefore cannot be licensed to be used on any public road or highway. This body shell is intended for OFF-ROAD USE ONLY! Due to the nature of these units, there may be minor scuffing, scratches, and/or dents and is sold as-is with no warranty. Every effort will be made to minimize any exterior defects, and any noticed will be documented on shipping manifest. Any other damage to these units must be identified at time of delivery before driver leaves or no claims will be processed.

Do not select any shipping choice during checkout other than pickup at our location. We will determine the best possible shipping method and contact the customer with a quote before the order is processed with the supplier. We will also be willing to work with your shipping carrier of choice if needed

I didn't notice that on the shipping. That's good, b/c the freight was like a grand by the calculator.
