Wrecked Dodge Challenger Hellcat Becomes "Running Pallet" Donor Car in Cleveland

One look at the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is enough to tip one about the muscle potential of the Mopar machine and you don't need to be a car aficionado to figure out this can easily turn against the driver of the SRT beast.

It's easy to get carried away when you have 707 ponies under your right foot and while we're can't be sure such a scenario caused the accident that destroyed the Mopar machine in the image we have here, we're dealing with a serious case of dismantling.

The Hellcat showed up in Cleveland, being listed on the Facebook page of a company that offers parts for project cars.

This particular example of the Challenger used to be a six-speed manual Hellcat, one that only got to enjoy 6,247 miles in its factory form (this had been born as a 2015 model).

Now, some of you will want to know more about the rescue process for the bits and bobs that result from such a brutal crash. Well, at least when it comes to Cleveland Power and Performance, the developer we're discussing here, the salvaged parts become a turnkey pallet.

You can see an image showing such a pallet to your right, with the solution allowing any potential buyer to easily asses the state of the hardware.

According to the company, this is the sixth Hellcat that has received its wooden frame and we have to admit that seeing the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi, along with the rest of tech goodies that were rescued from the wreck, being put to good use does make us feel better.

For one thing, Fiat Chrysler can't help but give in to the urge to Hellcat so many contraptions, from production vehicles, such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk (here are some spyshots), to concept cars like the Ram Rebel TRX. So enthusiasts out there on a mission to build their project cars deserve a go too.
