1970 Dodge Challenger
1970 Dodge Challenger Convertible, HEMI Powered, Fresh Nut and Bolt Restoration
Introduced in fall 1969 for the 1970 model year, the Challenger was one of two Chrysler E-body cars, the other being the slightly smaller Plymouth Barracuda, positioned to compete against the Mercury Cougar and Pontiac Firebird in the upper end of the pony car market segment.
The Challenger's wheelbase is two inches longer than the Barracuda and it features a more luxurious interior as did the 1967 Mercury Cougar, likewise a bigger, more luxurious and more expensive pony car aimed at affluent young American buyers.
This fine example was restored by well known and respected Restorations by Julius and the complete nut and bolt restoration was completed about 12 months ago.
The Challenger was originally born as a Sub-Lime or FJ5 convertible with a Black Top, Black Bucket Seats, Console, AM Radio, Power Steering and Power Disc Brakes.
The original 318ci engine was replaced by a mighty 472 Cubic Inch Stroker with an Era Correct 1966 Block, Mopar Performance Aluminum Heads and correct Hemi Carburetors fitted on top of an original Dual Quad Intake Manifold.
The Sure-Grip Posi-Traction Rear End is fitted with 3:55 gears and the car is complemented with Rally Wheels wrapped in 235/60/15 rubber upfront and 255/60/15 in the rear.
A custom Tachometer was fabricated and added to the dash cluster.
