1970 Dodge Challenger R/T

There's no question that Chrysler knew how to build some awesome muscle cars during the peak of the era. That's exactly why you're attracted to this 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T tribute. More than just a sleek and sinister appearance, this one backs up its muscle machine looks with a big Magnum 440 V8 and dual four-barrel carbs. But we suggest you look over the cool paint and nicely coordinated interior first, because once you hear the big block roar, nothing else will ever matter.
This coupe is out to get all the right attention. The Light Green Metallic is factory-correct, and it's just one of those cool '70s style hues that instantly get people to take notice. Of course, it also helps that it has be refinished later in life to have an extra dose of shine. Plus, it has all the right aggressive touches for an R/T such as the dual scoop hood, hood pins, and the full-length side stripes that highlight the sporty kick-up in the sheet metal. While we all love Mopars for their rarity, they were also great at the details, too. The hood has an overhang like an intimidating furrowed brow, and the rear has some of the best integrated elements with the chrome bumper an integral part of the design and the exhaust built into the valance. Even their Rallye wheel package was arguably better than the rest.
More distinction awaits you when you open the door. Just like the exterior, the factory-correct green interior nails the '70s feeling perfectly. And there have been the right investments in keeping it feeling fresh. This Challenger goes for both a premium and a sporty feeling with all the right elements. It starts with bucket seats and desirable center console. The wood grain in the center makes for a great place to rest your arm in this driver-oriented cockpit. In fact, this feels like a time machine where the driver was king, and it was an easy reach to everything from the heat/defrost controls to the AM radio. Plus, the three-spoke steering wheel gives you the grip a good sports machine should have, and it gives you a clear view to the full round gauge package.
When you open the hood, the valve covers say it all: Mopar Performance. This is powered by the almighty Magnum 440 cubic-inch V8. More than just having the famous performance big block, this one is enhanced with dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors, an Edelbrock air gap intake, an MSD ignition, and a mild cam. Because the Thorley headers add power as well as contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust, this screamer of a motor can be used to intimidate the rest of the muscle car crowd. In fact, it puts down 300 horsepower at the rear wheels, and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! It can be arranged for the original numbers-matching 383 V8 to come with the sale, but we really love what's already turn-key ready under the hood. While this is a mean muscle machine, if all you want to do is take your Challenger on a midnight cruise, then you'll be thankful for features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and BF Goodrich T/As.
Complete with owner's manual, this Mopar offers cool looks, great packaging, and serious power. So don't take too long admiring this one, or it might already be gone. Call now!
