It's hard not to get excited about this 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 Six-Pack. The trim tag tells us this is a factory triple-deuce car. Not only does it have a date-correct 3x set of Holley carbs, but there's also a date-correct engine and transmission that come with the sale. If that sounds like an impressive detail, then you'll be captivated by the full package. That's because there has been a big investment over every inch to restore this one to feel correct and vintage Even the undercarriage is cleaner than some other people's body paintwork. So you know they really sweated the details on this muscle Mopar.
FC7 - just a small code, but it makes Mopar people quite happy. Having it on the fender tag of this Challenger means that it's wearing its correct Plum Crazy color. But more than just a bold representation of a sought-after High Impact color, you can tell there were all the right investments when this coupe was restored. That's why the panel gaps are uniform, the doors close with authority, the glass is clean, and the form-hugging bumpers have a mirror-like shine. Plus, it has all the right aggressive touches for an R/T such as the dual scoop hood, hood pins, beautiful badging, wide quad exhaust tips, and bumblebee stripe on the rear. And the black vinyl roof is a factory-correct piece that perfectly fits this car. After all, it goes with the blackout grille and rear stripe, and at the same time, it signals the premium feeling a top-quality restoration like this deserves.
The black vinyl interior is the right choice to complement the vinyl roof. It feels almost like a time capsule with the fresh level of presentation. They even paid attention to details like the working AM/FM radio and dome light. The high-back bucket seats have a nice intricate pattern that is in superior condition thanks to an investment during restoration. And the moment you slip inside, you realize just how much Dodge wanted to surround the driver. This is a center console car with the gear selector perfectly molded into the contoured setup. And the three-spoke steering wheel and Rallye gauges are pure Mopar muscle cool.
While you've already fallen in love/lust with this Mopar, the best feature is under the hood. The big air grabber with callout means you and everyone else will instantly know that you are looking at the legendary 440 cubic-inch big block with the three-deuce "Six Pack" carbs on top. It looks extra sharp in the engine bay... like it's the spring of 1970 and this hardtop just came off the Hamtramck line. The trim tag tells us this is an ultra-desirable factory E87 six-pack car. Because of its significance and rarity, a date-correct engine block and transmission also come with the sale. So you have a motor you can enjoy, and for the purists out there, there's also a truly exciting option. The big V8 fires up with the feeling of awakening rumbling power. And the A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission has a stout reputation for handling all that muscle. Plus, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As make it easy to hit the blacktop to show off this award-worthy total package.
This is an iconic muscle machine that has been comprehensively restored to be stunning and vintage all in the same glance. A desirable and correct classic like this is rarely available for public sale. So don't miss out, call today!
