Vehicle Story

This 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE is finished in Sublime Green over a black interior and is powered by a 426ci Hemi V8 paired to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The car was acquired by the seller approximately 20 years ago and underwent a rotisserie restoration under their ownership. Equipment includes a shaker hood, Rallye gauges, power steering, power front disc brakes, and radio. During the seller's ownership, the car has been driven approximately 20k miles, with 5k of which having been added since the restoration. 

The car was refinished in its original High Impact shade of Sublime Green, approximately five years ago. A black vinyl roof is featured as part of the Special Edition "SE" package that includes a smaller rear window. A black side stripe runs the length of the car along the body lines, which was optional with the R/T package along with the "Go Wing" spoiler mounted on the decklid. The hood features an opening for the shaker style induction scoop, which was an optional upgrade over the standard power bulge for R/T models equipped with certain engines.

 

Factory wheels have been replaced by a set of polished 15” American Racing wheels, fitted with 235/70 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. The car is equipped with both driver and passenger chrome side-view mirrors and polished flip-top gas door. Braking is provided by power discs in the front and drums in the rear

The interior is fitted with manually-adjustable black bucket seats, which are not original to the car, and a black rear bench seat. Black carpeting matches the dash, door panels, and headliner. Woodgrain veneer is featured center console, door panels, and dashboard which is part of the SE trim. Additional SE features include an overhead console with three warning lights (Door Ajar, Low Fuel, Seat Belts). 

Behind the 3-spoke simulated wood steering wheel is the instrumentation cluster with Rallye gauges unique to the R/T. A 150-mph speedometer is featured along with an 8k tachometer. Additional gauges include fuel level, oil pressure, engine temperature, and battery voltage. Aftermarket oil pressure and water temperature gauges with numerical readouts have been added under the dashboard. The five-digit odometer shows 50k miles, however, the true mileage is unknown. The car has been driven approximately 25k miles in 20 years with 5k added since restoration.

This Challenger was originally equipped with a 383ci V8, the seller replaced the engine with a rebuilt 426ci Hemi V8 as part of the restoration. The engine features an aluminum intake manifold and heads, rebuilt dual Edelbrock 600 CFM carburetors, and a TTI exhaust system. A shaker style induction system was installed over the carburetors and a three-core aluminum radiator was added for improved engine cooling. A 727 Torquefilte 3-speed automatic transfers the power to the rear, with a Gear Vendors overdrive added to improve highway driveability. The seller has provided a dyno sheet, viewable in the gallery below, showing the car produces over 560 horsepower and over 500 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels.

Additional photos showing the underside are provided in the gallery. 

Included in the sale are receipts documenting the restoration and engine rebuild. The sale will also include the original radiator with the car. Located in Harwinton, Connecticut, this 1970 Challenger R/T SE is offered for sale with a clean Connecticut registration in the sellers name.
