Vehicle Description

1970 Dodge Challenger R/T For Sale, RARE HEMI & 4spd Pistol Grip, Restored and Documented Factory Documented 426 Hemi 4speed Challenger, Dodge's answer to the Mustang created "Pony Car" segment. Introduced for the 1970 model year, it was one of two Chrysler E-body cars, the other being the slightly smaller Plymouth Barracuda/Cuda. Competition was fierce in the muscle car war and both these cars were available in a staggering number of trim and option levels as well as virtually every engine in Chrysler's inventory. Chrysler intended the new 1970 Dodge to be the most potent pony car ever and positioned it to compete against the Mercury Cougar, Pontiac Firebird and other more luxury-type muscle cars. Dodge differed enough from the Plymouth in its outer sheet metal just like the Cougar differed from the shorter-wheelbase Ford Mustang. The Challenger was available as a two-door in either a hardtop coupe or a convertible body design. There were two models for its introductory year - base model Challenger and Challenger R/T. The Special Edition or Challenger SE that added a number of appearance, convenience, and comfort items was available as a model in either the Challenger or Challenger R/T. This fully documented factory Hemi Orange Challenger R/T is 1 of only 137 ever built with the 426 Hemi coupled with 4-speed transmission. Built on June 8th 1970 @ Chrysler’s Hamtramck Plant and documented with its factory Broadcast Sheet.
