For Sale: 1970 Dodge Challenger in O'Fallon, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is thrilled to offer this tire-smoking RestoMod 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T convertible marketed on consignment with our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. The Dodge Challenger has always been a muscle car legend but true convertible models are hard to come by with less than 1,200 being manufactured in 1970. This car is one of them and has been de-coded as a factory Hemi Orange convertible with a 383 Magnum/4spd powertrain. According to the seller, who himself has owned the vehicle since 1982, this Challenger has spent its life in California and Arizona. The Hemi Orange has been re-shot with a Black R/T stripe down either side and the Matte Black fiberglass cowl hood has a thermal coating to prevent warping. The rear fenders were opened up just enough to add those fat rear tires! All paint and body work was fabricated and finished by Restorations by Rob in Buckeye, Arizona- a Mopar specific outfit- who also refitted the power-operated convertible top and hydraulics. There was no expense spared on the engine work either which was done by an NHRA specialist in Tempe, Arizona- the 471 CID V8 motor pumps out 510hp and 600lb ft of torque according to the seller's records and is loaded with performance parts such as aluminum heads, Crane roller rockers, forged pistons and a Hughes cam. The Victor intake has been set up for NO2 with twin tanks in the trunk but it has never been used. A Ron Davis radiator with dual electric fans takes care of cooling and this Mopar has some ATTITUDE with a loud performance exhaust system comprising of Hooker headers feeding 3.5"dual cut-out pipes. The Hemi 4-speed manual transmission was mated with a dual friction clutch and stronger bellhousing and feeds a a chrome moly driveshaft to the Dana 60 rear end with Detroit locker and 4.10 gears. Inside this Challenger R/T you'll find that the entire interior has been refreshed but there's a lot of heritage present with the stock dash gauges, door panels and center console with signature "Pistol Grip" shifter. Upgraded Braum Black vinyl race seats with harnesses will keep you feeling secure while putting this 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T through its paces. This RestoMod is done right- it looks great, sounds great and drives great not to mention the history of being a real Challenger convertible holds a lot of value. You're not going to want to let this opportunity pass you by! Give our helpful and knowledgeable Sales staff a call by dialing (623) 900-4884 for more information on this mesmerizing Mopar for sale.
