Description
 
By the time 1970 rolled around, the Mustang had established the validity of the pony car market. Chevrolet and most of the other manufacturers were quick to follow suit, but it took Dodge a couple more years to unveil their entry into the pony car market with their Dodge Challenger. Wildly unique and capable of packing some serious horsepower under the hood, the Dodge Challenger quickly became a hit on the street and at the dragstrip. Its easy to see why when you look over this highly optioned 1970 Dodge Challenger that features a unique color combination and a monster 440 Six Pack under the hood.But before we get too far into this Challenger lets decode the VIN and fender tag: VIN: JS23V0B152965 J: Dodge Challenger S: Special 23: 2 door hardtop V: 440 CI 3-2 barrel carburetors 0: 1970 B: Hamtramck, MI 152965: Sequence numberNext lets breakdown the fender tag from left to right and from bottom to top to show just how highly optioned this Challenger is:E87: Engine: 440 3-2bbl 390hp V8 440 Magnum six pack D21: Transmission: A833 4-speed manual Hurst pistol grip JS: Car Line: Dodge Challenger R/T 23: Body Type: 2-door hardtop V: Engine: 440 3-2bbl 390hp V8 440 Magnum six pack 0: Model year: 1970 B: Assembly plant: Hamtramck, MI 152965 Assembly plant sequential number FJ5: Body Paint: Sublime Hi-impact H: Trim Grade: High 6: Front Seats: vinyl buckets XW: Interior: White and Black 000: upper door frame color: None A06: Scheduled production date: Monday October 06, 1969 041986: Vehicle order number V1W Style Roof Color: Vinyl top/white A34: Super Track Pak A62: Rallye instrument cluster B51: Power Brakes C16: Woodgrain console C55 Front Bucket Seats C62: LH b-way adjustable bucket seats G34: Mirror: Outside LH remote painted J45: Hood pins M21: Drip rail mouldings N41: dual exhaust system N42: Chrome exhausts tips N85: Tachometer R11: Radio: Music master AM V21: Performance hood tape treatment V9W: Stripes: White transverse sport Y05: Build to specs for U.S.A order 26: radiator diameter 26 width EN2: End of fender tag codesThe beneficiary of a complete rotisserie restoration, the entire car absolutely stands out because of one of the most vibrant color combinations that was available in 1970. The HI IMPACT Sublime paint absolutely pops and is accented quite nicely by the white vinyl top, white vinyl interior, and white stripes across the back of the car. The front of the car gives a menacing look thanks in part to the performance hood tape treatment and the vibrant paint. A chrome bumper stretches the length of the nose just below the grille that features Challenger R/T badging. Coming out from the grille are the two hood pins that add to the look of the car. Just above the grille on the bottom of the hood, chrome Dodge badging looks fantastic against a black accent stripe on the hood. The black stripe travels up the hood past two nonfunctional ram air scoops. Also on the hood are two 440 chrome emblems that are followed by the words SIX PACK written in red. On the fenders youll find more Challenger R/T badging that rests on an accent line that starts at the front fender and stretches to the rear bumper. The vinyl top shows no signs of wear and is an excellent feature. At the back of the car a white stripe stretches across the trunk and very rear tip of the trunk and is just wide enough to house more Challenger R/T emblems. Just below another body width rear bumper youll find quad chrome exhaust tips.Pull the hood pins and lift the performance hood and youll reveal a period correct Magnum 440 six pack V-8. The engine with the help of three 2-barrel carburetors was good for 390hp from the factory. All said and done there were only 1,640 Challenger R/T 2 door hardtops built with the 440 Six Pack. Of those only 847 were equipped with this driveline configuration. The block which accents the green engine bay in a vibrant orange paint, has a creation date of June 6th 1969. Below the massive air filter with 440 Magnum Six Pack insignia rests the three two-barrel carburetors that feed the engine their air-fuel mixture. The majority of buyers chose to go with either the 440 single barrel option or the 440 six pack instead of the Hemi because of the similar horsepower numbers and/or how expensive the Hemi was to purchase.Underneath the Challenger is just as impressive as the rest of the vehicle. Bolted to the 440 is the original A833 4-speed manual transmission that feeds power to a Dana 60 rear axle with a 4.10 sure grip differential. During the restoration the builder decided to paint the underside rather than having it undercoated. Even though this came with a 440 it was equipped with the Hemi suspension which meant it came with a .94 diameter front sway bar, firm ride shock absorbers, hemi torsion bars, heavy duty rear springs, and disc brakes on the front with drum brakes on the rear. The entire car rides on 14 styled Rallye wheels with period correct Polyglas tires.Open the vibrant green door and youll be greeted by a completely restored white vinyl interior. Two front bucket seats are separated by a woodgrain console with the pistol grip shifter for the 4-speed manual transmission. One unique feature to this car is the LH 6-way adjustable bucket seat that wasnt commonly seen. In front of the driver is the wood grain Rallye instrument cluster that houses the 150MPH speedo, 8,000 RPM tachometer, analog clock, and fuel, temp, oil pressure and voltage meter. Above the seats is a bright white headliner that shows no signs of wear. Like new black carpet lines the floor with matching Challenger R/T floor mats.The sale of this Challenger includes the extensive Galen Govier report that acknowledges the inclusion of the Challenger into the Chrysler Registry, and a detailed record book that starts in 1972 that details every purchase for the vehicle including gas.The Challenger may have been late to the pony car market, by the time the 1970 Challenger was released the Camaro, Mustang, and Barracuda were already well established and had supporters within the market place. However, the Challenger even with its back up against the wall still sold over 76,000 models when it was made available to the public. This Sublime Challenger R/T is a perfect example why.
