For a lot of people in the world of muscle cars, there is no car like a Mopar. The Dodge brand has been on a tear as of late, with the Challenger and Charger twins bringing the fight to competitors like the Chevy Camaro and the Ford Mustang. However, the undisputed king of the recently reinvigorated horsepower war belongs to the Mopar clan, thanks to the unhinged Dodge Demon. As if the road-legal drag racer wasn’t intriguing enough for the Mopar faithful, now they have a chance to purchase one owned by a true king himself, Richard Petty.
Available now on eBay, this black over black Dodge Demon carries VIN #0043, an obvious nod to the racing legend’s number out on track. The King didn’t drive the thing all that much, as there are only 449 miles on this particular Dodge Demon’s odometer. Something must have happened during that small amount of street time however, as the car does carry an orange title. The details surrounding the car’s rebuilt status are not addressed in the interestingly worded advert. We do know however that the car features a smattering of Petty signatures, both inside and under the hood. The VIN-matched Demon crate is included in the sale, also featuring some of The King’s scribbles.
For anyone looking to purchase one of these 840 horsepower muscle cars, the idea of owning what the seller describes as “the rarest one” might grab their attention. Despite the damage in its history and relatively common spec, no other Demon for sale has as much Mopar legacy attached to it.
That is not to say that this particular Dodge Demon would need any help finding a new home. Limited to just 3,300 units, the Demon is the ultimate expression of what a muscle car can be. Thanks to its ridiculously powerful engine and a whole suite of drag racing tech, the Demon holds the world record as the fastest accelerating road-going car, as well as being the first production car to wheelie at launch. That added legacy doesn’t come cheap however, as the car is listed with a price tag of $159,000. At this time, the bidding is still open for those who want a chance to own their own piece of Mopar history.
