Go for a Spin in a 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A with 340 Sixpack Engine and 320hp
http://www.rpmcollection.com Steve Cage shows you his awesome 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A 340 "Six Pack" muscle car in "Top Banana" yellow. The slapstick transmission function is used only for upshifts. You manually put it into first gear. As you accelerate - and the rpms are where you want it - you just slap the shift lever to the right. In order to race in the Sports Car Club of America's Trans American Sedan Championship, Dodge built the Dodge Challenger T/A (Trans Am). The 340 engine added a trio of two-barrel carburetors on top of an Edelbrock intake manifold, creating the "340 Six Pack". horsepower was about 320 hp. The engine breathed air through a suitcase sized air scoop molded into the fiberglass hood. Dual Exhausts ran to the stock muffler location under the trunk, then reversed direction to exit in chrome outlets in front of the rear wheels.

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/lg4nunj One of only 2,399 Challenger T/As produced for the 1970 model year, this numbers-matching pony car is the kind of professionally restored coupe that wins fans and trophies alike! The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration, this slick Challenger features a seamless factory appearance that's highlighted by fierce Trans Am war paint. Take one look down the sides of the car's rock-solid body and it becomes obvious that great care was taken to ensure every panel is aligned to better-than-factory fit. Step closer to that body's glossy, two-stage paint and check out straight and ripple-free surfaces that are a product of both rust-free, original sheetmetal and high quality replacement panels. Grab that sheetmetal's well-adjusted hood and feel how smoothly it closes to provide excellent fit, which is set off by precise gaps and a clean clearcoat shell. It all adds up to one high energy symphony of Mopar attitude that bleeds bare-knuckle confidence and oozes old school appeal! Pull the pins on this coupe's lightweight hood and you'll find an original, 340 cubic inch LA V8 that's authenticated by a 3577130TA casting number, a November (11) 25th (25) of 1969 (9) casting date and a matching partial VIN. Although SCCA Trans Am race cars were limited to 302 cubic inches, Dodge stuck to the tried and true "no replacement for displacement" rule for street applications. That means this car received a powerplant that was specifically designed for high performance turnpike warriors. And, thanks to its 2-barrel Holley carburetors, correct Edelbrock intake, high performance points distributor, high-flow cylinder heads and unique internals, it turns hefty 10.5 to 1 compression into 315 fire-breathing horses. That said; SCCA regulations and increasing insurance costs forced Chrysler to actually underrate the mill's output to just 290 horses. But, in reality, the car easily disposes of most 'equally powered' stoplight challengers. That high-winding small block churns an original A833 4-speed that's validated by a matching 311315 partial VIN. That transmission twists torque to a tagged, 8.75-inch rear end that spins a Sure Grip differential around athletic 3.55 gears. The car's application-specific suspension has been fully rebuilt to include beefy sway bars, correct manual steering and heavy duty power front disc and rear drum brakes. And all that mechanical prowess hits the pavement thanks to meticulously restored Rallye wheels which spin E60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs in front of G60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs to employ one of the first applications of staggered tire sizing. Swivel this Dodge's solid-closing doors and you'll find a correct black interior that's functional, straightforward and very livable. The front bucket and rear bench seats are covered in crack-free vinyl that displays hardly any signs of wear. In front of those seats, a clean dash props new Rallye gauges above a correct Chrysler Solid State radio. And in front of the driver, an attractive Rim Blow steering wheel mixes subtle form with major function. Authentic, documented and professionally restored, this bright yellow T/A is the perfect car for any Chrysler fan who wants a rare classic to collect and show.
