Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
When Dodge introduced the Challenger in 1970, they meant for it to go directly to the front of the pony car class. While it was offered with an almost endless variety of options, this combination, the R/T 440 Six Pack, was definitely the Valedictorian of the class. It was recognized for its performance and still commands any stage it steps onto. Check it out.
When you are this awesome, why not make sure people notice you when you arrive! And they will when you roll in with this car in its Sublime Green paint and bold hood scoop. There is nothing subtle about it. The green paint is slick and shines bright. When the lights catch it as it rolls by, it highlights the look of the body with the front end narrowing down like it's trying to cheat the air, while the muscular rear fenders bulge out to cover some serious rubber. Just like the originals, this hood is held down by 4 hood pins and is lifted off rather than taking on all that extra weight of hinges and springs. It is also painted flat black to reduce glare on the starting line and of course it needs a hood scoop that big to gather up enough fresh air to feed the beast within. The Six Pack lettered on the side of it is a serious warning and the rear wing has 440+6 lettered on it too.
Open the door and you will find a neat and clean Black interior that is a comfortable place to cruise, or conduct business. The door panel is simple with a nice armrest for use while prowling the boulevard on a Friday or Saturday night. The high back bucket seats are both comfortable and supportive in their pleated upholstery and a beefy Grant GT steering wheel feels good in your hands. A wood grained, pistol grip shifter for the 4-speed manual transmission is just a flick of the wrist to the right. The dash has been updated with white faced Auto Meter Phantom gauges with a tach mounted low on the left and the speedo as well as the oil, water, fuel and volt meters lined up across the top. A nice addition to this car is the dual sunroof and the headliner along with the carpeting do a good job of tying together the look of this interior.
Pull the pins, all four of them please, then get a hand from a friend to lift the hood off. It's part of the experience with this car and a ritual that recalls the original. There you will find the real deal. A 440 Six Pack motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. It is topped by that awesome setup of a trio of two-barrel Holley carburetors feeding an Edelbrock manifold. Finned aluminum Mopar Performance valve covers top the cylinder heads while long tube headers wind their way out the bottom and flow back through free flow mufflers. Aluminum mounts and pulleys keep things turning smoothly and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan keeps things running cool. There is a fuel cell in the trunk for the hi-test you will want to run, and drilled and slotted front rotors insure that you can haul this car back down from speed. The rubber meets the road through 295/50R15s in the back and 215/65R15s in the front that look perfect mounted on black steel wheels with hubcaps.
Command any stage you roll onto with this car. Come on down and check it out.
