'70 Dodge Challenger R/T, 440 Magnum   



A lot of Mopar fans collect SIX PACK and HEMI cars to recapture of piece of their well misspent youth.  The owner of this car remembers things more accurately than most.  The "street fighter" package that most Dodge Boys won bragging rights with weren't fussy mulit-carb jobs with a "mystery shifter" four speed, they were the big-inch 440 4bbl Magnum mated to the 727 TorqueFlite transmission and a Sure-Grip rear end. 

This 1970 Challenger R/T 440 Automatic recently underwent a complete rotisserie restoration.   The original broadcast sheet confirms this well optioned street terror presents the way the factory made her, Deep Burnt Orange Metallic, Burnt Orange Vinyl and Cloth Interior.  Far from FT6 Burnt Tan “stick around brown”, FK5 Deep Orange shows like the sunset over the badlands of South Dakota, especially under a blue sky.  The Deep Orange theme is carried through on the premium cloth and vinyl interior.  Combined with the stripe delete option and Sport Hood, the whole package says "sleeper" without being dowdy; muscular and elegant at the same time.

The engine and transmission are the original numbers matching units born with the car.  All the body numbers are likewise present and accounted for.  All options are documented by the original broadcast sheet and fender tags.  Hemi's may have won a few battles at Daytona, and SIX-PACKS some skirmishes on the NHRA drags, but the 440 Magnum won the war on the street.  If you are looking for more time well "misspent", then drop hammer in to DRIVE and push the pedal to the floor, this Challenger is waiting...
