19700000 Dodge ChallengerFOR SALE An all original 1970 Challenger barn find numbers matching, 25 slant 6, speed manual on the floor, uild month August 1969, uild date August 11, 969 “Challengers first started being built on August 1, 969”, car is number 824 off the assembly line, C7 Plum Crazy Purple, hite interior, ainted Plum Crazy steel wheels, enter hub caps, 6k miles.
In 1970 there were 79,474 Challengers built total, ith only 9,927 slant 6 - 225 engines. Total built from 1970-1974 were 165,437 with only 1/3 remaining on the road today. There were under 500 slant 6 - 225 engines with the 3 speed option on the floor manual shift built, he remainder were column shift or automatics. If you take in to account how many were ordered with the Plum Crazy / white interior this 500 number drops again way below 500.
The car has been off the road and hidden away for 25+ years until I purchased it. The engine was prepped before attempting to start. It turns over perfect but is getting no fire.
The body on the car is excellent, nly one quarter size rust spot behind the passenger front wheel. It will need a drivers floor and a trunk pan. All edges around the glasshave no rust. The dash is nice and gauge cluster with radio all complete. Undercarriage and frame are all good and solid.
I asked the local MOPAR club president to come and check the car out. He said has seen one slant 6 Challenger in all the shows he has attended and that it brought more interest than any other Challengers or Chargers at the show and suggested I do not touch the car and either restore it or sell it to someone who will. He said it will only be original once. Car has not been washed or cleaned, till like it was when I found it.
I have the original Broadcast Sheet, pare rim, istory leading back to dealership invoice and original purchaser from the dealer. The car has spent it's life in MS.
Hemi is the rarest, ith 198 6 cylinder in second place. The 225 - 6 cylinder is a very distant 3rd place, he 225 6 cylinder with 3 speed manual on the floor is the rarest of the 225 6 cylinders.
Please feel free to call if you have any questions.. 228-860-9163
Clean MS title in hand.
If you are planning to come to Cruisin the Coast in OCT, can hold the car after full payment until you pick it up. I can also assist in arranging shipping.On Sep-09-15 at 07:48:26 PDT, eller added the following information:
Just wanted to let everyone know who are watching the auction and called with questions. I have lowered the reserve way way down. Someone will be winning this car tonight. Good Luck!!
