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

Vehicle Description

The 1970 Dodge Challenger was Dodge's pony car answer to the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro , and finally appeared in the fall of 1969. Simultaneously, Plymouth gained a redesigned Barracuda which despite looking similar rode on a wheelbase two-inches shorter and shared no E-Body panels - only the windshield. The Dodge Challenger had been around since 1966, but was aimed at a mid-size market, like the Plymouth Satellite/GTX/Roadrunner. The new Challenger and 'Cuda were both late and expensive to develop. Insurance constraints, corporate restrictions on horsepower/weight ratios and imminent federal emissions regulations were bad news for pony cars, so the Challenger's day in the sun was a short one. The Challenger offered eight engines, from a slant six to the thundering 455 bhp 426 cid Hemi V-8. The R/T included standard 383 cid V-8, Rallye instrument panel, Rallye suspension with sway bar, and heavy-duty drum brakes. Convenience options included power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, and AM/FM radio. Stripes offered were longitudinal or rear bumble bee style. Available hood designs included smooth, dummy intakes, cold-air intake and shaker-style. Gearshifts included column, pistol grip 4-speeds and "slap-stick" console automatics. Performance figures of course varied depending on the equipment selection and the magazine doing the testing, but they were impressive. The 340 Six Pack did 0-60 mph in seven seconds and a quarter mile in 15.2 seconds. The R/T 440 Six Pack car managed 0-60 in 6.2 seconds and a 13.7 second-quarter mile at 105 mph, while the 426 Hemi reeled off 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds and a quarter mile in 13.1 seconds at 107.1 mph. Our stunning Yellow, Top Banana exterior with a black vinyl top, 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE, is a stunning example of these stop light bullies that terrorized the streets and boulevards in the early 1970's. Wearing black leather interior, this Challenger roars to life when its 383 is ignited and the 727 automatic transmission is 'slapped' into gear. Crammed with creature comforts that were rare to many muscle cars back in the day, this Dodge features air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, stereo with cd player, telescopic wheel, and more!
