Lot #1080 - This 1970 Challenger backs up The Roadster Shop, winning the 2009 Trendsetter of the Year Award. Called "The Coolest '70 Challenger Ever" by Popular Hot Rodding magazine after it was selected as a top five finalist for the 2010 Street Machine of the Year. This is a complete one-off build, with extensive body modifications to transform it into a modern, smoothed performance machine. The bumpers have been sectioned and flushed to the body with custom front and rear spoilers and rear lower valance with one-off center exhaust. BMW halo headlights and custom grille add to the clean, modern look. The custom glass hood with air intake feeds the 528ci aluminum HEMI that is backed by a 5-speed manual transmission. Ride quality and performance comes from the custom tubular front K-member and coilover suspension with power rack & pinion steering. It also features a custom independent rear suspension with coilover shocks and inboard disc brakes. The one-off Budnik wheels are wrapped in Pirelli rubber. The custom interior features four bucket seats covered in French-seamed black leather with Alcantara inserts. The custom center console houses the drilled shifter and engine start button, as well as controls for the power windows. The dash has a custom gauge surround filled with computerized Auto Meter gauges. The interior is completed with an Alpine and Rockford Fosgate stereo and Vintage Air and heat. The custom PPG paint was mixed to give this Challenger a unique presence, with hand-airbrushed 528 HEMI graphics and matte alloy hood to add to the detail. This one-off custom is a real street machine putting out over 700hp.
