Vehicle Description

1970 Dodge Challenger T/A For Sale - Only One Owner Until 2009, Fully Documented LMC is very proud to offer for sale this prized 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A With the introduction of the new Challenger in 1970, Dodge had finally entered the pony car market. The new Challenger gave Dodge the opportunity to enter a new platform in the SCCA Trans-Am series which was being dominated by General Motors and Ford. The Trans-Am racing series focused on factory pony cars racing on road courses which quickly gained steam in 1967, when the Mustang and A-body Barracuda suddenly had competition from GM with the Camaro and Firebird. Add to the fact that some of the greatest drivers of the era like Gurney, Foyt, Donohue, Savage, Follmer, Posey and Parnelli Jones, and you've got a race series worth watching. The 1970 Dodge Challenger was unique from its competitors in the marketplace. It was offered in every class of trim, with every engine package Mopar offered from the basic 6-cylinder coupe to the highly optioned R/T-SE Hemi. Out of all the available packages, the limited-edition T/A was the one to have if you preferred handling to just straight-line performance. The T/A option package mandated some special pieces that would help the Challenger compete in the Trans Am series. The T/A was powered by a 340 cubic inch Six Pack which boasted 290 hp backed by 4 speed transmission and Hurst Pistol Grip shifter. Under code A53, T/A Challengers also received a scooped fiberglass hood, a decklid rear spoiler, front chin spoilers, heavy handling-oriented suspension changes similar to what Hemi models received and special graphics. These cars also were exclusively optioned with 15-inch wheels with two tire sizes (Goodyear Polyglas E60-15 front and G60-15 rear), mandating the Hemi-type front fenders and a special rear-mounted radio antenna. This particular 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A was delivered to McEvoy Dodge on July 8th,1970 to its original owner Leon D. Jantzi. He ordered his new T/A in EW1 White complemented by the black graphics with a H6X9 Black interior which is a very classic color combination. Mr. Jantzi loved his Challenger and would keep the car in his possession all the way until 2009. Today it is complete with a numbers matching 340/TA six-pack engine and numbers matching 4 speed transmission. In the period, the original owner added an 8-track and stereo system, he even kept all the original installation instructions! He also kept extensive paperwork that includes: ownership history, two Broadcast Sheets, owner's manual, warranty pamphlet, dealership paperwork and much more! Today, this Challenger T/A remains in very nice condition having been cared for by its original owner for the majority of its life. Still retaining its number's matching drivetrain and complete with extensive documentation, this Challenger T/A is the perfect car for the Mopar enthusiast who can appreciate the rarity and collectability of such a car.
