There's no sneaking around in a car like this, and why would you want to? There are cars here at RK Motors Charlotte that we celebrate for their subtlety, but this 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T definitely isn't one of them. This car is loud, brash, and in your face, and it's awesome.
First off, this is a genuine, 100% matching-numbers R/T with a V-code 440 Six Pack, 4-speed manual transmission, and A34 Super Track Dana rear packed with 4.10 gears. We get a lot of performance cars through the shop here, and statistically, it's somewhat less common for cars with 4.10 gears to be numbers-matching. It's no secret how these cars were used, and the 4.10 cars were built to race. But you're in luck on this one it seems to have led a fairly easy life compared to some of its brothers. Everything is intact, present, and accounted for with no signs of abuse, alteration, or racing in its past.
Subject to an extensive and expensive nut-and-bolt restoration several years ago, this Challenger R/T still shows extremely well. The correct badges are all in place, the paint has been wet sanded and buffed to well beyond the factory standards, and the spotless white top is tight and wrinkle-free. It was obviously fully disassembled and that gorgeous red paint covers every nook and cranny in a way that a re-spray just can't duplicate. The glass is all of the original tinted glass installed when it was new. Even the door hinges are flawless, smooth, and shiny. All the rubber weather-stripping has been replaced and the doors close with a solid thunk, indicative of a tight, un-abused car.
The engine compartment is fully detailed, sporting the correct decals, tags, and markings. The Hemi Orange paint on the engine looks fresh, and even the Exhaust manifolds are still clean and rust-free, indicating very little driving since it was rebuilt. It fires up on the first try and settles into a perfect idle someone did a fantastic job getting this engine to run right and it should be a fantastic cruiser if you decide to put it on the road (and who wouldn't?).
Underneath, the suspension was also restored to show-winning standards and remains 99% flawless. Again, there's no indication that any significant miles have been put on this car since restoration. The floors are glossy and straight without any undercoating hiding the original sheet-metal, the suspension components have been correctly refinished, and the 235/60/15 radials on those great-looking Rallye wheels are virtually new. As I said, this car has only been used enough to keep it fresh and tight since restoration.
The interior is just spectacular. White interiors can sometimes be overpowering, but this one has the black carpet, dash, and console, which anchors everything and gives it great contrast. It's all-new, too, with fresh seat padding, door panels, carpeting, and headliner. The original AM radio works perfectly, including the rear speaker, and there's that little light on the dash that tells you when you're in reverse. The trunk features a new mat, a correct inflatable space-saver spare and jack, and is fully detailed, right down to the latch hardware.
This is exactly the kind of car that we like to call a fun investment. As a numbers-matching, 440 6-pack, 4-speed car, it's got a pedigree that automatically makes it more valuable than a majority of its siblings. It has had a high-quality professional restoration that you couldn't duplicate for the asking price. And best of all, it has already been sorted out and is ready to be enjoyed. This is a car you can put on the road with confidence, knowing that it drives as good as it looks, and that it will continue to appreciate in years to come.

132738 / 2007 BMW M6
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bpcssly
This 2007 M6 combines a rev-happy 500 horsepower V10 with a
sophisticated aluminum suspension and an athletic 6-speed manual
transmission to become the ULTIMATE expression of the ultimate driving
There's just something about a black BMW that conveys the perfect
combination of aggressive performance and excellent driving dynamics. This
2007 E63 M6 coupe wears a great looking coat of original Black Sapphire
Metallic paint that has been babied and protected since it was new. While
the base 6-series coupe is more exciting than its 5-series sedan stable
mate, it's still rather conservatively designed to appeal to a wide range
of buyers. BMW knew that a more dramatic appearance would be needed when
they dusted off their legendary M badge; and according, the M6 you see here
is equipped with a host of visual upgrades that, while significant, flow
extremely well with its already impressive design theme.
Fortunately for red-blooded car guys everywhere, one pull of the hood latch
is all it takes to throw the 'all business' black tie subtlety of this
car's sleek exterior right out the driver's window. Perfectly wedged
between the fenders is BMW's Formula One inspired 5.0 liter S85 V10 engine
that's good for a super car slaying 500 horsepower and 380 lb./ft.
of torque. Designed as a high-revving engine which utilizes a wide power
band to create over 100 horsepower per liter, it
features a 12 to 1 compression ratio and an astonishing 8,250 RPM redline.
Hardware includes a cast aluminum block, a forged steel crank, oil cooled
Mahle Motorsport forged aluminum pistons, variable valve timing, ten
individually controlled throttle butterflies, a quasi-dry sump lubricating
system and four valve per cylinder cast aluminum heads with CNC machined
ports and combustion chambers. However, despite the host of track proven
upgrades, none of this car's traditional BMW silk and smoothness has been
compromised, and it's a very well-mannered executive express until your
right foot outweighs your better judgment.
Naturally, a powerhouse like the S85 V10 needs a whole lot of top notch
hardware to back it up; and for the 2007 model year, a traditional Getrag
6-speed manual transmission was added to the options sheet. This cars
slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission sends power to a limited slip
differential which combines the car's excellent 50/50 weight distribution
with a driver-selectable responsive suspension for confident launches and
quick acceleration. That electronically controlled suspension is comprised
of a Macpherson strut front and multi-link rear four wheel independent set
up which utilizes dynamic stability control, traction control and fully
electronic brake distribution to turn this already serious performer into a
curve carving track monster. Braking is supplied by four ventilated discs
that are clamped by large black calipers via a standard anti-lock system.
And the final piece of the performance upgrade package is a set of
positively gorgeous machined aluminum 19 inch BMW "M" branded wheels that
wear 255/40 front and 285/35 rear Nitto Invos performance radials.
Inside the car it's all about traditional 'old world' luxury, with black
leather buckets, acres of walnut trim and every electronic option BMW could
think of built into their famous iDrive system. The supple leather covering
the seats shows hardly any wear at all, and the stitched leather covering
the dash and sculpted door panels is still as tight and conditioned as when
it left the factory. Inside that tight leather, crisp gauges allow the
driver to keep an eye on vitals and a centered iDrive screen handles
essentially all of the cars other functions through one large silver
button. In front of that button, a slick "M" branded shifter sits below
knobs for the cars dual zone climate control and a MP3 compatible 13
speaker Harmon/Kardon premium sound system with two subwoofers and a DVD
player. At the top of the car a suede headliner conveys an added sense of
style and comfort while in front of the driver, a leather wrapped tilt and
telescoping steering wheel carries a bright BMW propeller above the coveted
Highly civilized and extremely potent, this BMW M6 is a no-compromises
exercise in high-end German performance. Call, click or visit

1970 Dodge Challenger 440 V8 Sublime Green Mopar Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1970 Dodge Challenger. Named
to "challenge" anyone on the street, this Dodge debuted in 1970 and became
an instant classic. Under the hood, you will find a powerhouse of nostalgic
engineering, a 440 CID V8 wedge engine. These engines are known for their
power but are not as hyped as the popular Hemi. The transmission is a stout
727 TorqueFlite automatic which has been known to handle up to 550 horsepower. The exterior
of the car is the factory Sublime Green color that it had in 1970. The
interior is comprised of new black vinyl and looks very clean. The interior
matches the vinyl top on the exterior of the car. The car was completely
restored in 2007 and looks amazing. Before the epoxy paint the car was
taken all the way down to bare metal. We even place mirrors along the
underside of the car in our showroom to highlight the craftsmanship. The
440 engine has been bored .030 over and offers a mild camshaft and 2 1/2
inch stainless steel Exhaust. I hope
you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

132623 / 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 RS
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/ctnapbg
This awesome 1968 Camaro Z/28 RS has been nicely
restored to a very high standard. The bodywork is straight enough to make
the black paint look dazzling, the body gaps are exact, and the white
stripes are the perfect visual warning to complement the Z's performance
potential. Gaps are excellent all around, and the ductail spoiler gives it
just the right attitude. The paint itself is two-stage urethane, so it will
look this good practically forever if you take care of it, and the finish
is so deep it looks like you could dive in and swim in it. And I especially
like that the restorer kept to the original menu, and didn't add things
like the ubiquitous cowl induction hood, which really has no place on a
valuable car like a Z/28.
Under the hood, however, things get a little more interesting. Since the
original 302 was long gone, a robust ZZ430 crate motor was installed,
upping the horsepower rating by 140
compared to the stock 290.. Now displacing 350 cubic inches, it uses GM
Fast Burn cylinder heads and a HOT cam that was developed for showroom
stock racing. A dual plane intake with a 750 CFM Holley double pumper feeds
the fuel, and an MSD ignition system lights the fire. Stock Exhaust manifolds keep it civilized and
reasonably stock-appearing under the hood, and help make maintenance a
breeze. Everything is nicely detailed, with bright finishes and no trace of
leaks or abuse anywhere.
The only transmission you could get with your Z/28 was a 4-speed Muncie
M20, and that's what still lives behind the high-winding small block. Out
back, a rugged 12-bolt rear with 3.73 gears is this car's original
differential, as verified by Jerry MacNeish himself. The extremely clean
chassis is fresh off the rotisserie, with correctly finished components
throughout. Most obvious is the original style chambered Exhaust system, which not only sounds amazing,
but probably frees up a few extra horsepower as Chevy
intended. Correct Rally wheels wearing reproduction Goodyear Wide Tread GT
bias-ply tires give it a 1968 showroom fresh look.
Black buckets were the right choice in this black Z, and the interior
remains in excellent condition throughout. Only the driver's seat shows
some slight signs of use, but otherwise the new seat covers, fresh carpets,
and reproduction door panels are just as fresh as they were when the
restoration was completed. A correct RS steering wheel with aluminum spokes
gives you uninterrupted views of the rebuilt gauges, and the factory AM
radio remains in the dash. In back, the trunk has been correctly finished
with spatter paint, a new mat, and a full-sized spare with jack assembly.
This car comes with a full package of information from Jerry MacNeish,
fully documenting this car and all its options, which verify it as a real
Z/28. It also includes a warranty card with Protect-O-Plate, and a
certificate of authenticity.
With the prices of matching-numbers Z/28s rapidly closing in on
six-figures, that will obviously move them into the "too nice to drive"
category. But if you're the kind of guy who believes in putting his
hardware on the road, in the feel of a perfectly executed downshift, and
the banshee wail of a powerful small block, then this exceptionally clean
and diabolically fast Z/28 is a bargain. Call, click or visit

132662 / 1996 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bl428yf
With just 8,784 original miles, this 1996 Caprice Classic is the equivalent
of an Impala SS, but much more unusual.
Ordered new by an 86 year old lady and maintained until her recent death at
age 102, this car carries all of the important options, including the
5.7-liter V8. Apparently she wanted an Impala SS, but didn't want bucket
seats and a console, so she scanned the order form and built her own
As with all the low-mileage cars RK Motors Charlotte features, the highest
praise we can give this one is that it is as-new in virtually every way.
When we talk about restorations, they are inevitably better than new in
every way, but original cars are special. There's no bodywork required, no
fresh paint on any of the panels, and everything fits the way it did when
the guys at the factory put it together. The paint is amazingly nice, and
white looks pretty darned good on this big cars body contrasting nicely
with the black window treatments and stainless steel grille.
The Caprice Classic was available with a V6, but the top motor was the
Corvette-derived 5.7 liter LT1, which, in this application made 260 horsepower. One look under
the hood is all you'll need to be convinced that this is a low-mileage
original car. All the original equipment is intact, including the engine
cover up top, which is often the first thing unscrupulous mechanics toss
while doing maintenance work. The bottles for the radiator and windshield
washer fluid (which are HUGE, by the way) are still clear and white, not
yellowed and discolored by age and heat. The belts, hoses, plugs and wires
are most likely still the original equipment. There's simply nothing more
reliable than a small block Chevy, and these LT1s routinely last longer
than 250,000 miles before needing major service.
The transmission is GM's rugged and dependable 4L60E 4-speed automatic, and
it works perfectly. Out back a set of 2.93 gears on a limited slip
differential help the Caprice deliver on its EPA estimated 26 MPG on the
highway and make it a highly relaxed cruiser. Like the engine bay,
everything is original and in remarkably good condition, from the floors
and frame, to the suspension and brakes, which all feel like brand new. The
original Exhaust system has no leaks
and has a healthy, albeit subdued; rumble that suggests some pretty serious
blasting powder is available under the hood. This car does carry the
optional $550 Sport Suspension, which upgraded the standard Caprice to
Impala SS specifications for a little more precision on the road. The car
currently wears aftermarket aluminum five spoke wheels that feature
gunmetal gray paint, machined aluminum lips and 235/70/15 BF Goodrich Long
Trail radials. However, if you're a stickler for authenticity, the cars
original aluminum alloy turbine wheels that came standard with the Special
Value Caprice Sedan Package 3 are included with the sale.
The main reason this car is a Caprice Classic and not an Impala SS is
inside, where the original owner insisted on a leather-lined bench instead
of the Impalas standard buckets. Nicely preserved and showing hardly any
wear at all, this Caprices interior is a plush environment that has legroom
galore. If you're the sort of guy who complains about new cars being too
small, well, here's your ride. And all the power goodies are included, like
power windows, locks, seats, as well as A/C and a moderately good factory
stereo system. The gauges are a combination of analog and digital
instruments that were cool in the 90s and still function well today. Wood
trim is reasonably realistic looking, and covers parts of the dash and door
panels to give the Caprice an upscale feel. This was, after all, Chevy's
top-of-the-line sedan. In back, there's enough room for the starting front
line of an NBA team to get comfortable, and it doesn't look like anyone has
ever spent any time back there; it's new in every way.
With all the hardware that makes an Impala SS so cool, plus the updated
quarter panels and windows that got rid of the odd Caprice styling, this
essentially new 1996 Caprice Classic a slam-dunk!
1970 Dodge Challenger RT STK 1285
This Challenger R/T is a factory 440/375 HP, U code with a total nut and
bolt professional no money spared rotisserie restoration. It now has the
documented Chrysler dealer installed optional Six-Pack Carburetor set up
with all receipts. The other dealer installed options were power steering
and power disc-brakes with OEM date coded period correct parts restored by
White Post Restorations. The Rotisserie Restoration was done to factory OEM
The interior is just like new. Everything works down to the clock! All new
weather stripping, dash pad, seat covers, carpet, headliner, door panels,
inside door handles and window handles.
Starting with a laser straight body made for a great restoration. All of
the correct paint markings are there, along with the detailed suspension,
every nut and bolt is correct as far as we can tell. The car has less than
100 test miles since restoration.
The paint is the correct PPG B-5 Blue, base coat clear coat, colored sanded
and polished to an incredible, flawless better than new liquid glass
finish. One of the nicest paint jobs you will ever see.
The car came with the 440 375 Hp and we have the receipts of the complete
engine rebuild. The Six pack option was just installed a year ago, the
original four barrel intake, carburetor and air cleaner goes with the car
and matches the rest of the cars restoration. The engine compartment is
detailed for show with all the correct paint markings and inspection
stamps. Installed a new 2.25" Flowmaster Exhaust system.
The transmission is the correct 4 speed and has been rebuilt and detailed.
The shifter works perfect as does the clutch. The rear end is a 3.54:1 Dana
60 track package, code A33 on fender tag.
The wheels and tires that are on the car are brand new BFG radials and
correct wheels. This gorgeous Challengers and possibly the best on the
market. The restoration was started using NOS parts where available about
three years ago and finished last year. The car even has NOS spark plug
wires. Restoration receipts and invoices are over $100,000.00 and come with
the car. A partial build sheet was found and will also go with the

132699 / 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cx4625y
You wouldn't believe the number of E-mails and comments we get from people
looking through the showroom, all of them saying how beautiful the cars are
but lamenting that they're all "too nice to drive." Well, their prayers are
answered with this 1969 Camaro Z/28.
Yes, this is an original code 76 Daytona Yellow car, and the modern 2-stage
paint with black SS stripes looks spectacular on the '69 Camaro sheet-metal, but you can
see that for yourself. The paint and bodywork is professionally done and
shows well, but it's not the kind of paint you're going to need to rub with
a diaper or worry every time you see dark clouds in the sky. Gaps are
decent all around, with acceptable fit from the cowl-induction hood and
ducktail spoiler out back. The stripes were painted on, as is the fashion
these days, and everything is buried under a coat of clear to make waxing
it a snap.
Despite the decals and other accurate items throughout the engine bay, the
power-plant in this F-body isn't a high-revving 302, but a potent 350 crate
motor. However, that doesn't mean that it has to look like a crate motor -
in addition to the 302 decal on the correct cowl-induction air cleaner,
there are correct hoses and clamps, and the entire engine has been bathed
in a coat of vintage Chevy Orange paint. The valve covers are correct
ribbed aluminum pieces that have been polished until they shine like
chrome, and you can be forgiven if you thought this was a real Z/28. Of
course, one of the tipoffs is the A/C compressor mounted on the driver's
side, a modern unit that works flawlessly, and whose lines are hidden down
low for a clean appearance in the engine bay. Long tube headers feed a true
dual Exhaust system that barks and
snarls like an original might have, but makes more horsepower.
Underneath, you'll find a chassis that's been restored and upgraded for the
road. Up front, a modern steering system makes this car feel and track like
a 2011 Camaro. The
owner reports that he tried several different combinations of springs and
spindles to get exactly the ride height he wanted, and when you look at
this car's aggressive, yet not slammed stance, you'll know it was time and
money well spent. The floors have been patched here and there, but no
wholesale replacement was needed. And while you're looking around under
there, you'll undoubtedly notice that the transmission is not the familiar
Muncie 4-speed, but a modern Tremec TKO 5-speed. The Exhaust system is a true dual setup featuring
2.5-inch pipes and aggressive Flowmaster mufflers, and out back there's a
bulletproof 12-bolt rear with 3.36 gears.
Personally, I think the houndstooth interior is extremely neat. It might be
hard to describe it to someone who has never seen it, but in person it's
pure '60s cool. The seat covers are new and the correct pattern, which was
used in the 1969 pace cars in addition to being a regular production option
on all Camaros. The
carpets and headliner are also recently installed, and the 5-speed shifter
sprouting from an original GM console looks right at home. The A/C features
an electronic control system with a remote that allows for an infinitely
variable fan speed and it blows ice cold, even on the hottest days here in
North Carolina. The dash and gauges appear original and in very good
condition, with the only notable flaws being in the chrome plated plastic
rings around the gauges. And speaking of gauges, a quartet of
original-style auxiliary gauges have been installed on the console, but
feature white faces instead of the original black for a modern twist on a
classic design. A "Retro Radio" features a 10-disc CD changer so you don't
have to deal with whatever they're playing on AM these days.
So no more messages about cars that are "too nice to drive"; one rip
through all five gears - where you'll find yourself somewhere north of 130
MPH - will convince you that the street is where this Z/28 tribute belongs.
