Brand New 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Was Kept In Trailer For 11 Years

Buying a car only to keep it in storage for years and then score a profit on is not something most petrolheads would approve of, especially when a performance car is involved.

It’s a quite common practice, though, particularly among ultra rare and/or expensive models. Moreover, without people like these, there would be far fewer time capsules in this world.

Despite being a 2008 car, the term “time capsule” fits this Dodge Challenger SRT8 perfectly. You see, despite being more than a decade old, this example has barely been driven and shows only 9 miles (14.5 km) on the odo. The seller says this is the lowest mileage 2008 Challenger for sale anywhere in the United States, and we guess they’re right.

When the owner bought it, they went to pick it up with an enclosed trailer;and that’s where the Challenger spent the rest of its life. Hopefully, that is about to end, provided that someone is willing to fork out $36,995 for it.

According to the description on eBay, the car was removed from the trailer occasionally to have all mechanicals exercised and take pictures of it. The seller also claims “extreme care has been taken to make sure no elements enter the trailer.” For example, the Challenger has never been washed so there’s a chance that dust you see on the finish is several years old.

During the decade spent in the sealed trailer, the car had the trickle charger kept on the battery and all liquid stabilizers added. The engine has been started once a month and the car has been backed up and down the driveway every couple of months to keep everything lubricated.

Still undecided? This Challenger SRT8 features every factory option available in 2008 and comes with a clean title. No license plates have ever been issued or put on it, so the buyer will be the first to have that privilege. Unless they decide to go for a brand new 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T and have about $2,500 left to spend on whatever you like.
