Seventy-one was the first production year and generation of the Blackhawk. The hand-built car was marketed as pure luxury and was initially listed at $22,500. That’d be approximately $130,000 these days. The car, which was fitted with a Pontiac’s 7.5-liter V8 and a GM TH400 3-speed automatic, took about 1,500 hours to build. Barry White even had one of these, complete with shag in the trunk.
