This 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A is one of 2,399 total built and
powered by its original matching-numbers 6-barrel 340/290hp V8
engine paired to its original matching-numbers 4-speed close-ratio
manual transmission and 3.55 Sure-Grip rear end. The 340ci engine
could accelerate the 'Cuda from 0-60 miles per hour in 5.8 seconds,
0-100 miles per hour in 14.4 seconds and race a quarter-mile in
14.4 seconds at 100 miles per hour. It was designed with modest
engine racers in mind, built to compete on twisting road courses
and what Plymouth built was a street rod. SCCA homologation
requirements dictated that a manufacturer build a minimum of 2,500
street versions in order to compete. The single-production-year
Dodge Challenger met the homologation requirements, all during a
five-week period between March and April 1970. The TA was different
from the regular Challenger in many ways. The hood is made of
lightweight fiberglass. What really set this hood apart from all
other cars is the hood scoop, functional and drawing in the fresh
air. For spoilers, it had front "eyebrow" spoilers and a rear "duck
tail." Unlike a standard Challenger, the exhaust came out the sides
near the back wheels. Includes a formal Elite Level Wise Inspection
report and has been recorded in the MMC Detroit Global Vehicle
Registry. From the Lindley Collection.
