1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Hardtop

Description:

1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Hardtop

In the hierarchy of legendary muscle cars, the 1970 Challenger is up near the pinnacle. It was created to "challenge" the Mustang, the Camaro, and Cougar and with a few boisterous engine options, it quickly raced to the top of pony car/muscle car dominance. It ended up being the precursor to the SRT/Hellcat/Demon dominance of the modern generation of muscle cars. For a short period of time, nothing could top the HiPo Mopars.

For consignment, a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T, a true V-code car with some tasteful day 2 performance mods. Relative to most cars from 1970, it has had low ownership numbers and our consignor, the car's third owner, has owned it since 2020 and completed the engine work. The original Broadcast Sheet is included with the car denoting this as a Super Track Pack ride, and it retains its numbers matching transmission.

Exterior
Single stage Walnut Metallic paint now covers the factory FC7 finish, (that's Plum Crazy for the non Mopar aficionados), definitely harkens back to the time period, (who didn't have a brown car back in the day?), and is accented with gold pin striping and designs throughout. A flat black covers the power bulge hood which is flanked by aggressive nostril intake scoops. The chrome bumpers, window trim, and emblems are in great shape and the body panels are straight. 15-inch Cragar SS wheels fill the wheel wells and staggered size tires give the car a slightly raked and forceful look. Four rectangle exhaust tips fit into the sculpted rear valance where we happen to notice a long scratch on the surface. Other imperfections include a filler bump and another surface scratch. Overall, a very nice survivor exterior.

Interior
Things are very original in here with plastic molded black door panels are no nonsense and not overdesigned. They do have a center section of faux wood which warms things up a bit and connects with wood elements on the dash and console. High back black vinyl bucket seats are up front, and we note a tear on the driver's seat. More textured vinyl makes up the rear 2+2 seats and along with the molded plastic trim back there, look great. The 3-spoke faux wood rimmed steering wheel looks good and goes well with the wood applique backed dashboard. Nothing was particularly complicated in 1970 and there are four round gauges relaying all the information the driver needs. An AM radio is about as basic as we've seen and all controls are housed in a cove that is canted towards the driver, leaving the passenger to simply sit back and enjoy the ride. This includes the center console where we find perhaps the most iconic shifter ever produced, the Hurst pistol grip based in a smooth wood applique lined platform. Black loop style carpet covers the floor in fine fashion and the black, stitched headliner looks great. The trunk has a fitted mat but it's pretty well stained and there's also a space saver spare and a cross lug wrench there.

Drivetrain
A non-original 440ci V8 is the heart of the beast and is fed by a six-pack consisting of three new 2-barrel carburetors. The engine's been bored .030 over, houses a Comp Cam with .507i/510e lift, 240i/246e duration and a106 intake centerline, and 110 degrees of lobe separation. Hedman headers send the spent gas southward. The matching numbers transmission is in place and is a New Process A833 4-speed manual sending a consignor stated 500 horsepower to the Dana 60 rear end holding 4.10 SureGrip gears. Power brakes, front disk and rear drum, have the ungodly task of taming this beast.

Undercarriage
Absolutely no complaints here as the underside is super clean save for some light invasive rust in the center rear of the trunk flooring. The exhaust shines as it makes its way from the headers into a pair of Flowmaster mufflers and then takes center stage as mean looking quad exhaust in the back. We note just a touch of oil at the rear differential but not an active leak. Torsion bar suspension fits the front while leaf springs with traction bars are found in the back.

Drive-Ability
The well tuned carbs take on some gas and the spark ignites the 440 to life and the headers start the cacophony of exhaust notes. The car has obvious power and very good acceleration, just as the legendary lore would dictate. Tracking is on point and braking is excellent. Everything functions with the exception of the reverse lights.

It always feels like a bit of a history lesson when these vintage Mopar muscle cars come in. They're usually well documented and you can practically create a birth certificate and bio for each one. Here's a clean and well sorted example in a period color and some upgraded internals. Put your right hand on that pistol grip and start writing a check with your left before some other challenger beats you to the punch.
