1970 Challenger R/T Convertible - all matching numbers 440 Magnum engine & transmission!
I bought this rare Mopar from a friend who cared for her since 1971. This is a fully documented survivor with it’s ORIGINAL BUILD SHEET (see pic). 1 of approx.163 with the factory 440 Magnum engine. 1 of 1 in F8 green & saddle interior in R/T convertible with 440 engine. This is a NUMBERS MATCHING ENGINE & TRANS. All gauges work as they should including the clock and original radio. In the trunk sits the original collapsible spare and jack. Power top works perfectly. She starts smoothly & runs/accelerates perfectly.
The Challenger just turned 100k miles and has been garaged it’s entire life. The original owner in 1970 sold it after 6 months due to the draft. He sold it to his buddy who was a terrific caretaker of his friends car from 1971-2018. The car went through a light restoration in the 90’s. There has been only one re-spray in its original F8 green. This is a stripe delete car. Under the hood you will find it’s original 440 Magnum V8. I have the original Rimblow steering wheel (can be restored). I also have original saddle color seating along with other original parts. You won’t find many opportunities to buy a rare car like this with fully documented history and ownership. Selling due to other priorities. If serious, call or text me @ 917.848.8708

The Fiat Jolly might be the most popular among the “beach” cars produced in decades past, but it wasn’t the only example of its ilk. Volkswagen notes that it also produced what the Italians termed a rolling spiaggina (beach chair). The open-air, fringe-trimmed fabric-roofed Fiat was built (by Ghia) to be carried on a yacht […]
