This is a beautifully restored and modified, 1970 Dodge Challenger RT/SE. Originally equipped with a 383, this Challenger was modified with a 426 Hemi when it was completed a few years ago.
Current pricing for the same car, originally equipped with a Hemi and in comparable condition, is $175,000 (source: CPI Value Guide, March-April 2020). You can own this one for less than half that amount.
When the car was restored, the owner upgraded the powertrain to a 426 Hemi and mated it with a 727 Torqueflite transmission with a Gear Vendors overdrive. This gives the car pleasant highway manors without sacrificing the Hemi's tire-smoking acceleration. It's a great combination for street/highway use.
All maintenance on this Hemi Challenger has been completed properly, and it has always been stored in a temperature controlled environment. There are plenty of receipts to document the restoration, engine build, and condition of the vehicle.
The professionally built 426 Hemi is equipped with a “Shaker Hood”, aluminum intake and heads. A three row alloy radiator replaces the original, which goes with the car. It also has a TTI exhaust system from the headers to the tips, and both Edelbrock 600 CFM carbs were recently rebuilt and reinstalled. The Dyno sheet shows over 500 lb. ft of torque and more than 550 HP.
Options include power steering, power front disc brakes and radio. The “Sublime” paint looks new, the bright trim and glass are almost perfect, and the interior is in excellent condition. The pictures show an undercarriage that is as clean as the engine compartment.
If you've ever wanted to own an authentic 1970’s Hemi Challenger, but didn't want to pay $175K for one, here’s your chance to own a Hemi equipped RT/SE for less than half the price! This classic Dodge Challenger is located in Connecticut and available for inspection, by appointment.
