You always want to buy someone else's labor of love. How else can you explain a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T that has been restored to a top-quality condition, and it even includes the best upgrades like A/C, leather seating, and fire-breathing 426 Hemi V8.
The theme of this car should be a thoughtful muscle machine. The red paint has that exceptional high gloss shine that says there was not only an investment in a professional application, but also the sheetmeal. These doors close with more authority than ones from the factory ever could. Just as bold as the red as all the aggressive dark touches such as the custom rear stripe and the dual scoops in the hood that look like black holes of performance. But more than just have the right look of power, this coupe holds up to scrutiny better than just about any other one we've seen. All the chrome and trim has been replaced, the glass is scratch-free, and the Rallye wheels have never seen a curb. It all proves that this multi-year, frame-off restoration was a true labor of love.
More of the high-quality restoration becomes apparent the moment you sit down in the high back bucket seats. There's a supple feeling that you don't get in other Mopars. That's because while the pattern looks factory-correct, this was finished in modern leather. Plus, the split-bench up front gives you bucket seat style bolstering. So now you have added distinction and utility, and any time you want, you can fold down the enter armrest for true individual comfort. Because there's been an eye for authenticity, the dash, headliner, carpeting, and door panels all are high-quality and period-correct. You'll love grabbing the dual-spoke steering wheel and looking out over the full round gauge package. Even the factory AM radio is still working! But while everything looks quite correct, there is one additional upgrade that you can feel. That's because this red-hot Challenger has ice-cold R134a air conditioning.
When you peek under the hood, you'll be happy to see that the fender callouts were not lying. The engine bay is filled with Hemi power. It looks fantastically correct with the big orange air topper, matching block, and plenty of glossy dark components. But this big block is hiding a little secret. It's actually a much fresher 426 cubic-inch Hemi crate motor. And with only 900 miles on this one since the whole build, the V8 is barely broken in. Not only is it newer, but it's also more powerful because it inhales deeply through dual Holley four-barrel carburetors. Making sure you get the best out of this monster motor is a stout A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission that was specifically built to handle the extra power. Plus, it features a 3,400 stall to keep you in the optimal powerband. This feeds a Sure Grip limited slip 3.91 rear end for the best in all-around performance. We know you'll love the roar this dual exhaust makes as you power down the highway, but don't forget to follow this rumble's journey in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see the clean details that a full restoration gives you. But as fresh as this one is, we know you won't be able to resist adding miles to the odometer. After all, with power steering and front disc brakes, this big V8 Mopar is also quite nice on the road.
We've got all the right documentation, including owner's manual, build receipts, restoration photos, and two feature stories on this coupe. This Challenger has received the level of care and detail that you would want for your cherished classic. So rather than spend years trying to get to this level, you can skip ahead right now to the fun part... but only if you call today!
