Body: The car is titled as a 1970 Charger, but was custom built with a 1968 grill and taillight panel, and 69 quarter panels and fenders. The rear of the car is 3 inches wider than stock - this was done by pulling the quarter panels out 1.5 inches on each side when they were installed. This allowed for an outer well tub, and a much larger rear tire without modifying the frame or the trunk - which appears almost completely stock.
A larger rear spoiler was molded into the decklid and extended to the edge of the quarters, (all steel). A passenger side fuel filler cap was added and is fully functional - you can fuel up from either side of the car (or both if you are in a hurry). All the side glass has been eliminated, and the door window openings welded/closed off using steel, and smoothed over into the upper door panels.
Door handles, locks, windshield wipers, and cowl vents were shaved. One opens the doors by reaching inside and using the inner door handles. The firewall was extended out to eliminate the wiper motor indentation, and completely smoothed over. Both front and rear bumpers have been smoothed, (no bolts), and tucked into the car. The subframes were connected with 2x2 square tubing, and 1 5/8 round tubing was used to create a "cradle" to support the car and eliminate any flex. You can jack up any corner of the car and still open the doors - it's that stiff!! There is NO top - this is not a convertible - it's a true roadster.
The underside of this car was completely coated in silver bed liner. Everything under the car is detailed and painted to color match. The trunk is also coated in silver bed liner.
Interior: The 1970 style interior was kept, but the color was changed to 1968 red. Legendary Auto Interiors created custom door panels without any window roller holes. They also created the red seat covers for the stock front and rear bench seats. Carpet is red marine grade. The floorboards were coated with bed liner, then we applied Dynamat Extreme, then carpet. The drain holes in the floor are still accessible if needed.
The seat foams were covered in plastic before the seat covers were installed - this prevents the seats from soaking up any water should you happen to get it wet.
The dash contains both radio and heater delete plates, no defrost vents, and has been painted matching red. The gauges are all rebuilt, with new electronic fuel, voltage, temperature, and oil pressure gauges in the stock location. The dash contains a new Rallye tach as well. The switch holes for the wiper and washer have been filled and painted over. There are no windshield wipers - there's no top so why bother.
Engine/Trans/Rear-end: It is a new rebuilt with a mild cam, the only modifications to the engine are a new Weiand intake manifold and headers. The headers are ceramic coated with Performachrome - appears like chrome but won't discolor! Engine bay is charcoal, and the engine is a body-matching silver. Gases exit through custom 2.5 inch dual exhaust and Flowmaster 44 mufflers. All the exhaust is treated with heat-resistant paint. It was not designed for crazy street racing of power, and it has not been dyno'd, but runs great and sounds even greater, pure muscle roar.
This car sounds very tough and runs very nice - starts every time! An aluminum radiator with a custom color-matched shroud keep things cool. The trans is a 727 automatic with a 3000 stall converter. Rearend is a 3.23 gear, non-posi from an E-body (a little narrower than the B-body rear), with new Moser axles.
Tires/Wheels/Brakes: Wheels are custom Billet Specialties (17x6 front, 17x11 rear). Tires are 325/45-17 rear, and 235/50-17 front. Rear tires are M&H Racemaster Drag Radials, and look awesome from the side or rear. They completely fill the custom expanded wheel wells. The brakes are 4-wheel manual disc. The front brakes are 1973 A-body conversion, the rear are SSBC conversion. A Wilwood master cylinder controls pressure.
Paint/Body: 70 Smoothed RT Door Scoops. The paint is a custom 2-tone Charcoal over Silver, with a 1/8 inch red pinstripe between them. The grill has been blacked out, with the emblems painted a matching body silver. The bumpers are also charcoal color matching all deck surfaces. All lights work, including the vacuum operated headlight doors! The taillights/brake lights are super bright LED (23 leds in each one)!
Wiring/Plumbing: The wiring has been completely redone with a Painless Wiring harness. The fuse block is now located out of sight above the drivers left foot. All of the engine bay and front wiring has been hidden along the frame rail. All of the engine electronics (ballast resistor, alternator regulator, electronic ignition, starter relay) have been hidden under the battery tray. All of the car's plumbing (brake and fuel lines) are completely custom and brand new.
