Would it need to be in an original V-code car? Or could I just build a 71 RR or Charger and drop a 440-6, 4 speed and roll for zero points since it was an available option.

 

Besides getting murdered by the mopar purists for using the parts...

 

Technically speaking champcar doesn't care what the original chassis code was for your car, but you need to have a consistent "spec" in your build that was a real spec the car was built to. Basically a true clone of the car type you want to run. 

 

For example, i use ACR\RT spec parts on my neon, even though one of the chassis i used was a base model car. The car i present to race is mechanically the same specs as an ACR\RT would be, just not the same body shell. 

 

For SC300 cars, you dont need to buy a 5 speed car to race a 5 speed, but it better have all of the same spec parts a 5 speed car shouls have (diff can come from either spec, a rule added about a year ago).

Easy enough to build a 500hp 440-6. I wouldn't use stock #'s parts. too expensive. My last six pack set-up cost $2100 complete. New. If I got used stuff could probably do it for $1200.  71's have a 20 gallon take so by the rules I could use a 22 gallon cell.  my old 440-6 build got 15mpg @ a steady 50mph.  and it was about 600+hp. It would be bad ass to run one around Daytona, Brakes might be an issue going into the 1st hard left...lol The only issue is the up front cost for a 70-72 b-body.  a straight un-rusted roller goes for 6k and up.
