Dodge entered the pony car wars with the 1970 Dodge Challenger, and the slogan, "Most potent pony car ever". Many people also think it's the best looking one. Those factors, plus low production numbers and low survivability of these cars through the years, make these, first of the breed models, very collectible cars. Let's take a look at this first-class example.
The choice of purple paint on this car is bold and really shines. A Challenger R/T grill looks ready to swallow up, rather than pass, whatever it catches up with. The hood scoop announcing the 440 Magnum engine underneath, with hood pins to keep it securely closed, add a bit to the intimidation factor too. From the side you get the full effect of the sweet looking double white stripes ending in "RT" on the rear fenders, and notice the aggressive stance of the car. Body lines sweep up to the high trunk which is topped by a spoiler, and define the look of the car quite nicely. Rear lights are framed by bright trim and there are chrome exhaust tips exiting cutouts in the lower valence. Set all those good looks on Foose wheels, then add Challenger R/T badging on the trunk and front fenders to finish off the look of the car quite nicely.
The interior of this car has a super clean look to it with white upholstery and door panels, contrasting with black carpets, dash, and headliner. A touch of woodgrain in the door panels and on the console, add a nice touch too. Have a seat and grab the beefy three spoke steering wheel, then look through that wheel to check out the dash upgraded with white faced Auto Meter gauges. A Kenwood head unit drives the iPod compatible stereo CD player, pumping great sound out through JL Audio subwoofers in the trunk, along with the speakers in the cabin. As a mid-sized pony car, there is reasonable room in the back seat for your friends to join you on cruise nights or even on a road trip. But pack light, because some of that back-seat room was a borrowed from trunk space.
Now let's consider the claim of "most potent pony car ever" made in 1970. It was valid then, and it still is with the period correct modifications in this build. The Magnum 440 engines were well made and tough from the beginning. The bottom end of this motor uses the stock, forged, crankshaft, and adds forged high compression pistons. Free flowing Edelbrock cylinder heads and intake manifold, are fed by a Holly 850 double pumper carb, and send the spent gasses out through TTI headers. Back those mods up with an MSD ignition system, and it all adds up to approximately 500+ HP! Then a three-speed automatic trans with a slapstick shifter handles the power transfer duties nicely. But it's not only about the power with this car. The Dodge chassis engineers left their mark too. A complete Hemi suspension system front to rear with a Firm Feel stage 2 power steering upgrade, and front disc brakes really make this car handle well.
Come on down and check out this first-class example of a first year Challenger. It's a sweet one, and could be yours.
