This 1970 Dodge Charger R/T tribute has everything you want. Not only is it the final year for this very intimidating style, but you also have some great features - including a powerful enhanced 440 V8 upgrade. It makes for one of the sharpest-looking and meanest muscle machines out there right now.
These Chargers had flair. The flying buttress roof and a well-integrated rear spoiler all make this quite classy. But there's also a ton of muscle car aggression in here, too. The squared-off bodywork with its brawny curves looks particularly striking thanks to a professional upgrade to a vibrant and gloss orange paint later in life. And they also upgraded this to an R/T with that shapely vented hood and vent trim on the doors. Of course, these Chargers never needed much help with intimidation thanks to the wraparound chrome front bumper. It draws attention to the recessed grille that looks like it will inhale anything that gets in its way. Not only is that front-end shadowy, but also the vinyl roof and bumblebee stripe on the rear come together to give this a stylish and well-coordinated dark side.
All the black on the outside gets you ready for the full black interior. This is a clean and complete setup that shows more of the right investments. It impresses, right down to the details, like the plush carpeting and working courtesy lights. You get all the best features from the era, including the high-back bucket seats with a center console and floor shift. And the three-spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view to the full gauge package with the large speedo and tach. While the radio looks like a classic piece, it's actually a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/Bluetooth. So you know you're just imagining rolling down all the windows on this hardtop and cranking up your favorite music. Then again, your preferred soundtrack really may just be the growing exhaust note.
In a muscle car that has been this clean so far, you know exactly what you'll see when you lift the hood. It's an exceptionally tidy engine bay, nearly overflowing with motor. The big 440 cubic-inch Magnum V8 was upgraded later in life, and you can see it was installed with care and an attention to detail. It has great correct pieces like the Magnum air topper and factory stickers. But what you'll really like is how this is a full performance build. It's a bored .40 setup with Smith Bros pushrods, new gaskets, new cam, and topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. It loves to fire up with gusto, and the long tube heads add both power and rumble to the H-pipe dual exhaust. As you look underneath, you'll see more signs of a clean build, as well as subframe connectors. Plus, this is a fine driver with features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and wide BF Goodrich T/As on Mopar road wheels.
Complete with build receipts, this is a trophy-level car that has even been used in a movie. It's a classic Charger done to the level that reminds us all why we love Mopar muscle. Call today!!!
