Challenger SRT Hellcat
Are there total numbers on how many built and colors or options For the HCD?
My tracker keeps climbing slowly as I find more VINs. I was told by an inside source that the total number could be as high as 3500. I wish Dodge would publish a small article about the last one off the line and the total number. We shall wait and see. I will continue to post weekly updates as my numbers keep climbing or we get final confirmation.Are there total numbers on how many built and colors or options For the HCD?
Here are the graphs that I post on a bi-weekly basis. The ship-to plot is USA specific and lists how many have been shipped to each state. The other plots are all inclusive with the exception of the Canadian plot. I can slice the data any way it is desired. So far I have tracked down 3248 DDHC VINs. There are more out there that I haven't found yet as one of my sources said the final number was close to 3,500. Production is finished. I am just trying to get a complete VIN list or the final number from Dodge/Stellantis.is there usa specific numbers?
@ARD Yes, you are correct. The Tow Package includes the compact spare. What the 7% shows is the folks that didn't order the Tow Package but still desired a compact spare tire as it was a separate option that could be ordered. In all roughly 79% of the DDHCs built came with a compact spare tire. There are 21% of them out there with no spare tire at all and will rely on the stock run flat tires and hope they don't have a blowout.CWGrizzwold , Fantastic overview.
One comment, I see that 72% of all DDs you have listed came with Tow Package, but only 7% with compact spare. I was under the impression that Compact Spare was a part of Tow Package. I see that on my build sheet, and any other one I looked at with the Tow Package was the same. Any clarifications on this?
Based upon the VIN that was a beautiful spec that I saw when it was being sold new at Stone Motors LLC in Vermont. It was transferred/wholesaled to another dealer, Fred Martin Superstore in Ohio I think, before being sold. Can't believe they spend the time on Copart to actually list this one as available for auction. Someone has already bid $250 on it so I hope the scrap value is more than that! Based upon my stats is was 1 of 6 Octane Red DDHCs with Sterling Silver stripes. Here is a picture when new..Another one down. Anyone know the story here?
This is the BIG question that many have asked. I think DDHC value will hold for at least 1 more year due to overall vehicle shortages and it being a limited production vehicle, but you have to remember this is still a niche market SUV. There are a ton being dumped to resale now by folks who either couldn't afford them, are flipping to make $$, hate filling it up every 3 days, or moved onto something cheaper and more practical. If vehicle production recovers in the next few years I would expect the DDHC value would diminish a bit like the other Hellcats, but that is what is TBD based upon high displacement / horsepower gasoline powered vehicles being replaced by hybrids or EVs. Regardless, it's still a niche market vehicle that you will need someone to buy. It's not fair to compare it to the Demon even though production volume was similar. Heck, most people don't even know these were made!Going to ask you guys to predict the future here:
Where do you see DDHC values in one year? Five years?
