1970 Dodge Challenger

This is a real 1970 Dodge Challenger RT 440 v-code 6 pac car. It is NOT a shaker hood purple car. I added a photo of what the car looked like in the 80's So you understand the history of the car. The owner at that time bought it off of a board at the local car parts store at that time it had a 340 6 pac and retained its factory color of F3 light green metallic. Still had a 4spd and dana with 4;10 gears. After purchasing the car he had all the custom work done and did not care it was a V-code car and does not know what happened to the fender tag and he does not remember the guys name he bought it from. The car and history is well known in the St Louis mo mopar area. But that is as far back as the history of the car is known. So what is known is it was F3 green 440 6 pac 4spd dana super trac pac car. In the late 80's the car had a electrical fire and burnt the interior up and the insurance company totaled the car out. He bought it back and striped the car and it went to the junk yard and sat there for a few years until somebody peeled back the white fur on the dash and saw the vin number and saved itfrom the junk yard and it was passed around to 4 or 5 owners until I got it and restored it to the condition it is now. I decided to restore it how I would of ordered it new. I got it as a shell and it came out of body shop that did not finish it they replaced a frame rail due to setting on the ground and the roof skin was warped from the fire. They also had partial quarters on it when I got it. I cut them off and put Good Mark full quarters on and finished all the body work and did full rotisserie restoration and painted it with the help from the owner of Claydoe Custom paint. That was 9 years ago. The interior is Legendary. The gauges are original with the clock and tac rebuilt and work perfect. The motor is bored 30 over with sealed power forged pistons 6 pac rods and balancer and the hemi oil pan with high volume pump oil psi is between 60 and 80 psi. The heads have stainless steel valves and hardened seats and are set up to run super unleaded pump gas. The intake is the cast iron one with original Holley carbs rebuilt by Pro-Max out of Indy. Motor runs great I have it set up with a Chrysler 4spd overdrive transmission with the 4;10 gears it turns 2600 rpms at 70 So the car is very driveable I have been on 3 power tours with the car with no problems would not be afraid to take it again tomorrow. It is a fun car to drive and take to shows and cruises. The car is not a 100 point show car the paint has a few blemishes and nics and scratches and there is a small bubble on the bottom of the driver door. As you can tell by the pictures it is beautiful car and shows very well you can take it to any local show and take home a trophy. The under carrage is still shinny and looks great Last year on the Hot Rod Power tour coming out of Madison. Wi. Hot Rod took photos of it and posted them on there web site. And later that same day I was interviewed by the local tv station in Champaign Il. so the car is a head turner. I posted pics of the VIN tag and the numbers on the fire wall. The fender tag is a Outback made tag I added the options as stated earlier the only known options were the 440 motor 6 pac dana 4:10 4 spd and green I want to be as honest as possible about the car. If you purchased a V code car and paid a shop to do it like this it would cost you more than my reserve price. If you have any questions you can call me at 618-567-9686. Thanks and good luck bidding.
