Anybody who has seen any of the televised car auctions likely knows
about the crazy numbers vintage mopars are bringing. Some of these
cars are incredibly rare making them one of only a few every built.
Of the Challenger line by far the most sought after car is the 1970
Dodge Challenger Hemi Convertible. Only 9 of these cars were ever
built making them extremely desirable and sought after. This car
may not be a factory hemi car but it has been fitted with a date
correct hemi motor. Looking closely it would be very hard to
determine that this car isn't one of those 9 R/Ts. Coated in plum
crazy this 70 Dodge Challenger convertible is the car that many
mopar enthusiast dreams are made of. You can't get more mopar than
a plum crazy challenger with hemi!
The paint on the car has a beautiful finish and the white side
stripes accent the white top perfectly. All of the chrome and
stainless has a great shine and the car is badged as an R/T. Again,
only an expert wouldn't fooled by this restoration as it was
extremely well done. The blacked out grill looks perfect and with
the dual double headlights you can easily see where the modern
challenger got its influences from. The correct style hood pins are
in place and just add to the overall muscle car look. Original
style wheels sit under each corner and are all wrapped with
Polyglas GT Goodyear tires.
Pop open the shaker hood and you will be greeted with the extremely
well built 426 hemi. Not only does the motor perform well, it has
that factory fresh look you rarely see. It was constructed using
all of the factory specifications down to the little details like
original dodge hoses. It is then paired with an automatic
transmission that shifts properly with zero issues. The car has
power brakes and is extremely comfortable to drive. It has that
classic mopar sound which is provided via the dual exhaust exiting
through the rear.
The interior of the car is done in white and just like the rest was
restored to its factory appearance. Between the bucket seats are
the original console which incorporates some wood grain into the
interior. Wood grain also accents the gauge pod which houses
original style gauges. The odometer reads 64,989 which are the
factory original miles.
