Vehicle Description

For 1970 Chrysler introduced the Dodge Challenger as a new model that was directly positioned to compete against the fierce competition in the popular pony car market segment. Although the Challenger was the last entrant in the pony car ranks of Detroit's Big Three, the sporty two-door hardtop R/T model was well received by the public and accounted for over 18% of all Challenger production in 1970. Beneath the Challenger power bulge hood was the reason for such excitement - the famed optional 426 cubic-inch Hemi V8 that produced 425 horsepower. Dodge was also no stranger to offering variety and the Challenger had enough options, trim packages, and colors for the most discerning consumer. Presented in its Plum Crazy purple color this 1970 example is one of only 150 automatic HEMIs' assembled and has all the sporty features typical to the Challenger including Rallye instrument cluster package, power steering, dual exhaust, bucket seats, center console, chrome exterior mirror and Rallye wheels just to name a few. A recipient of a comprehensive rotisserie restoration this HEMI R/T is in absolutely exquisite condition. Every inch of the Challenger has been restored or reconditioned to a superior level. This amazing concentration of detail allowed this very rare HEMI Challenger to receive a minute deduction of only 10 points from a possible 221 at the prestigious 2004 Mopar Nationals judging event. Adding to its collectability is the presence of not one, but five Chrysler Corporation Broadcast sheets! The HEMI-powered 1970 Challenger has long been considered the pinnacle of the muscle car era, and examples as perfect as this do not come around very often. Do not miss your chance to own a true legend of motoring history.
