134572 / 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/m596wxa The beneficiary of a complete rotisserie restoration by noted Mopar restorer Le Hodge of Hodge MOPAR Restoration, this 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T absolutely stands out because of one of the most vibrant color combinations that was available in 1970. The HI IMPACT Sublime paint absolutely pops and is accented quite nicely by the white vinyl top, white vinyl interior, and white stripes across the back of the car. The front of the car gives a menacing look thanks in part to the performance hood tape treatment and the vibrant paint. A chrome bumper stretches the length of the nose just below the grille that features Challenger R/T badging. Coming out from the grille are the two hood pins that add to the look of the car. Just above the grille on the bottom of the hood, chrome Dodge badging looks fantastic against a black accent stripe on the hood. The black stripe travels up the hood past two nonfunctional ram air scoops. Also on the hood are two 440 chrome emblems that are followed by the words 'SIX PACK' written in red. On the fenders you'll find more Challenger R/T badging that rests on an accent line that starts at the front fender and stretches to the rear bumper. The vinyl top shows no signs of wear and is an excellent feature. At the back of the car a white stripe stretches across the trunk and very rear tip of the trunk and is just wide enough to house more Challenger R/T emblems. Just below another body width rear bumper you'll find quad chrome Exhaust tips. Pull the hood pins and lift the performance hood and you'll reveal a period correct Magnum 440 six pack V-8. The engine with the help of three 2-barrel carburetors was good for 390hp from the factory. All said and done there were only 1,640 Challenger R/T 2 door hardtops built with the 440 Six Pack. Of those only 847 were equipped with this driveline configuration. The block which accents the green engine bay in a vibrant orange paint, has a creation date of June 6th 1969. Below the massive air filter with 440 Magnum Six Pack insignia rests the three two-barrel carburetors that feed the engine their air-fuel mixture. The majority of buyers chose to go with either the 440 single barrel option or the 440 six pack instead of the Hemi because of the similar horsepower numbers and/or how expensive the Hemi was to purchase. Underneath the Challenger is just as impressive as the rest of the vehicle. Bolted to the 440 is the original A833 4-speed manual transmission that feeds power to a Dana 60 rear axle with a 4.10 sure grip differential. During the restoration the builder decided to paint the underside rather than having it undercoated. Even though this came with a 440 it was equipped with the Hemi suspension which meant it came with a .94 diameter front sway bar, firm ride shock absorbers, hemi torsion bars, heavy duty rear springs, and disc brakes on the front with drum brakes on the rear. The entire car rides on 14" styled Rallye wheels with period correct Polyglas tires. Open the vibrant green door and you'll be greeted by a completely restored white vinyl interior. Two front bucket seats are separated by a woodgrain console with the pistol grip shifter for the 4-speed manual transmission. One unique feature to this car is the LH 6-way adjustable bucket seat that wasn't commonly seen. In front of the driver is the wood grain Rallye instrument cluster that houses the 150MPH speedo, 8,000 RPM tachometer, analog clock, and fuel, temp, oil pressure and voltage meter. Above the seats is a bright white headliner that shows no signs of wear. Like new black carpet lines the floor with matching Challenger R/T floor mats. The sale of this Challenger includes the extensive Galen Govier report that acknowledges the inclusion of the Challenger into the Chrysler Registry, and a detailed record book that starts in 1972 that details every purchase for the vehicle including gas. The Challenger may have been late to the pony car market, by the time the 1970 Challenger was released the Camaro, Mustang, and Barracuda were already well established and had supporters within the market place. However, the Challenger even with its back up against the wall still sold over 76,000 models when it was made available to the public. This Sublime Challenger R/T is a perfect example why.
