This is the story we all want. This 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 was hidden away for decades in a barn only to be resurrected and given a highly accurate and detailed full restoration. Now this uniquely green Challenger is a shining example that has all the right pieces, including the big numbers-matching V8.
The restoration was s big investment in both time and money, and the proof is in the details. The panels expertly fit together, and the factory-correct Light Green Metallic paint has an electric-level shine. It was taken down to bare metal in the restoration, and so they made the sheetmetal looking its best before the first drop of green when down. And even more shine comes from the form-hugging bumpers, complete trim, and the 17-inch upgraded alloys that still keep the Mopar road wheel look (the original 14-inch Rallyes can also come with the sale, too.) Set against this green paint are the even brighter green R/T horizontal stripes that draw extra attention to the curvaceous profile. And we love the coordinated dark side where the satin black hood treatment highlights the ram air openings, and the taut green vinyl roof adds sophistication. So it's a total package that's memorable for both distinction and quality.
Inside the sea of green continues. This Challenger goes for both a premium and a sporty feeling with all the right elements. It starts with bucket seats and desirable center console. The wood-like grain in the center nicely coordinates with the door panels and dash for the right period-correct feeling. In fact, this one goes for so much originality that even the correct AM/FM radio is still cranking out tunes (there is a Bluetooth conversion available.) That means the restoration spent money even getting the details right on everything from the trunk mat to the three-spoke sports steering wheel (w/power steering.) And Mopar fans know how special it Is to have the Rallye gauge cluster that features the large tach prominently in the center, just like a racecar.
When you peek under the hood, you'll find an engine bay filled with big block Mopar power. People will marvel at the correct presentation of the bold orange block, correct decals, and factory air topper. You'll take pride in telling them that this is the original numbers-matching mighty 440 Magnum V8, too! It inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, which helps contribute to the wicked snarl of the dual exhaust. The three-speed automatic transmission is original to the car, too, and the way this one shifts is another reminder of the level of investment in this Mopar. In fact, as you look at the undercarriage photos, the cleanliness of the whole car reminds you the advantages of a solid restoration and the confidence it gives you for the future.
The sale comes complete with all the right documentation to tell this car's whole story. It includes the factory broadcast sheet, title docs, and barn find photo book. So if you're a fan of high-quality American muscle, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
