132890 / 1970 Dodge Charger R/T
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/78gb3op As you might imagine, it takes a very special car to amaze us here at RK Motors Charlotte. And as the Hemi headquarters of the world, we've seen some pretty amazing machinery come through our doors, and have broken some price guide records while we were at it. But few cars can compare with this spectacular 100% matching-numbers 1970 Charger R/T Hemi, which is one of only 56 Hemi Chargers built that year, sports a 1-of-1 color combination, a full fender tag full of options, and has received a rating of 1.1 from Galen Govier, meaning it's the absolute best of the best. With full documentation, a known ownership history from new, and a restoration that was conducted to the very highest standards, this is THE Hemi to own if you're serious about your Mopar muscle. This Charger was originally ordered new by 15-year-old Wayne Gagosian, who had spent the previous three years washing dishes to save up for the purchase at Carl Burger Dodge in San Diego. However, unlike most new drivers, this young man didn't abuse, race, modify, or ultimately wreck the car. Instead, he carefully saved the original documentation, manuals, and brochures, then drove it for about 6000 miles before trading it in. From there this Charger went through a series of owners, including one gentleman who owned it for more than two decades, but it was always treated as something special. And as a cool ending to this story, Wayne and the Charger were reunited at the 2005 SEMA show in Las Vegas, an event that created the ultimate photo opportunity and appeared in dozens of collector car magazines. If you want a no-stories Charger with an awesome story, this is the one! Now about the car itself. As you know, it's rust-free and matching-numbers, but that doesn't quite tell the whole story. Of course, the car is A LOT nicer than it was originally, with near-perfect panel alignment, deep, glossy Top Banana paint rendered in two-stage urethane that shines like the surface of the sun, and attention to detail that no factory in the world could ever afford. The graphics were expertly reproduced, including the ultra-rare hood graphics with HEMI callout, as installed by the factory. Details like the flip-up gas cap, R/T emblems on the faux vents on the front doors, and optional racing mirrors are all in impressive condition considering that most of it is original equipment. Giving a 16-year-old kid the keys to a Hemi sounds like a recipe for disaster, but since young Wayne earned the car himself and didn't have it handed to him, well, there was a level of respect for the machinery that seems to have been infused into the very sheetmetal. In fact, it appears that NOBODY ever abused this car, and while the engine was carefully disassembled, checked, adjusted, and rebuilt with vast care, most of the vitals are original. Then the elephant was dressed for show, with Hemi Orange paint, crinkle finish valve covers, and all the little things that Mopar guys expect in top-flight show cars. With all the original factory markings still intact, reproducing them accurately was easy, and every detail you see under the hood is as it was in 1970 when Wayne's mother drove the car home for him . Underneath, it's as you would expect, fully restored but highly authentic. The original 4-speed manual transmission is there, of course, feeding the factory-issued Dana 60 full of 3.54 gears, which makes this Hemi an effortless cruiser. New lines and hoses, rebuilt brakes and suspension, and a fresh dual Exhaust system with proper resonators and rectangular chrome tips have been installed. Beautiful Rallye wheels have been reinstalled and fitted with reproduction Goodyear Polyglas GT tires. Black buckets were the best choice with the Top Banana paint job, but you'll also notice cool things like the 6-way power driver's seat, padded center armrest, power windows, and a stereo 8-track player in the dash. It's hard to draw the line between original and restored components, since the car was so immaculately preserved all its life, and it sure looks like the back seat is factory-issue. The trunk carries a painted steel wheel and matching Goodyear tire, as well as a complete jack assembly, and Galen Govier has already verified that all the vital VIN stampings are present and 100% authentic. Highly decorated, beautifully restored, with an incredible story to tell, this may be the ultimate HEMI Charger. Investment-grade HEMIs don't get more blue-chip than this, and the price you see on the sticker today will surely be considered a bargain in the future. Few other cars can compare with this one's pedigree, HEMI or otherwise. Don't miss this opportunity and call, click, or visit http://www.RKMotorsCharlotte.com for all the details on the world's most amazing HEMI Charger.

Disregard the fact that the guy calls it a 70 Challenger....slip of the tongue. A nice ride along as he rows through the gears with the infamous pistol grip shifter.
