Want to drive around town in American muscle formerly owned by a four-time Super Bowl winning kicker and probable future NFL points leader? If so, look no further than Adam Vinatieri’s “plum crazy purple” 1971 Dodge Charger, which is currently being sold by Volo Auto Museum.
Vinatieri, who will be back with the Colts for his 23rd season, is apparently a classic car buff and had some cars sold through Mecum Auctions last year. Now is your chance to get one of the vehicles from Vinatieri’s collection assuming you have $28,988 to drop.
Details from Volo Auto Museum (via eBay):
Wow, this charger certainly has the looks, it’s hot! Has 440 motor built to 1970 specs per previous owner. The front end has been rebuilt, new gas tank, front shocks etc. I just inspected the underside of the car on the lift, the floors inner rockers are solid original metal. The body has a shiny clear coat plum crazy purple finish. Jambs are painted, weatherstrips are excellent. The stripes, spoiler, power bulge hood and color keyed bumpers really make it pop. The 17 inch polished Torque Thrust wheels are the cherry on top. The interior is very nice. Has upgraded retro stereo, embroidered floormats and gauge cluster. Nice trunk compartment, it has been painted. The motor compartment is cleaned and painted. Upgraded intake, carb and headers. As of now the car’s only been here a day or two and I have heard at least half a dozen compliments from men, women and even my 11 year old daughter on how sharp the car is. From the NFL player, Adam Vinatieri collection. It’s a neck snapper, for both the passengers and onlookers!
It goes without saying but Vinatieri is a surefire Hall of Famer and will undoubtedly have his jersey retired by both the Colts and Patriots if he ever decides to stop kicking.
*As always, no one on BC has connections to the seller and will not receive commission on a potential sale.
