If you had a wish list of all the features you’d want in your next muscle car, this 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T would probably nail them all. Big block power? Loaded with options? Fresh restoration? Awesome colors? All of it is included with this fantastic blue Challenger. Have a look and prepare to be impressed.
You may as well get a popular color on your Mopar muscle, because that’s one of their most defining features. This one wears a sparkling coat of B5 Bright Blue, which is how it came from the factory. It was restored not too long ago and judging by the fit of the bodywork and super straight sheetmetal, this was a pretty nice car to start with. Chrysler got the look exactly right with their A-body siblings and the Challenger ideally embodies the long hood/short deck profile that just screams high performance. Add in a performance hood with blackout stripe and the R/T side stripes that highlight the little kick-up behind the door, and you have one of the best-looking muscle cars of all time. They kept it clean by skipping the spoilers, but you're still going to have a hard time keeping a low profile in this car. The front and rear bumpers are bright chrome, which sparkles against the blue paint. Proper emblems, including '383 Magnum' badges, have been installed to intimidate the other guy at stop lights. There's also a black vinyl top (the fender tag says it was originally white), which adds a touch of formality and works rather well with the black graphics.
The bright blue interior is also fully restored with rare split front bench seat, a feature I bet you’ve never seen before. The seat covers and carpets are new, the door panels are beautifully rendered, and all the weather-seals look recent. The wood-rimmed steering wheel is another unusual option and finding a column shifter on a Challenger, and an R/T no less, is a really rare discovery. All the gauges are fully operational and you’ll note that this one carries factory A/C, suggesting that perhaps the original owner wanted a touch of luxury with his performance. It's possible that the back seat is original and it remains in excellent condition, and there's a newer AM/FM/CD stereo in the original slot near the driver. Finally, the trunk is neatly finished with a correct mat and a full-sized spare with jack.
Originally a 383 2-barrel car, this awesome Challenger now sports a built 383 that’s been tweaked to make a bit more horsepower. With a mild cam inside to give it a slightly lopey idle, a big 4-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake manifold, and proper set of long-tube headers, it cackles like a true muscle car should. Aside from the finned air cleaner and valve covers that add a high-performance look, it looks fairly authentic under the hood. It’s backed by a rebuilt 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic and 8.75-inch rear end with easy-cruising gears inside, which we suspect are 3.23s. The Flowmaster exhaust system is brand new, there are fresh shocks all around, and while it's not restored for show, the underside is quite clean and solid. Factory Magnum 500 wheels with staggered 215/70/14 front and 235/60/14 rear BFGoodrich radials complete the look.
When we dream of our ideal car, it’s always a shock to find that it actually exists. This Challenger is one of those rare finds that hits all the right notes. Call today!
