This 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T was originally sold new in El Paso TX and has just over 35,000 original miles on the odometer (verified). Powered by the original, numbers matching 375hp 440, it is loaded with other great options: Power disc brakes, power steering, console shift automatic, air conditioning, 8-Track AM /FM radio, white vinyl roof ,tinted glass and more.
Here is the story on this car as told by Mike from Automotion Classics who acquire the Challenger for us:
I have located and spoken with the original owner who ordered this car new. I found him after researching information on a credit card receipt discovered under the carpet when it was removed.
(I was told, by the fellow that I bought the car from, that the original owner was so short and he could not see over the R/T hood, so he had it replaced with a flat hood from the dealership. The original owner told me that he had traded the R/T hood for a flat hood of the same color, because the R/T hood “attracted too many cops”.) Note: The R/T hood is missing in this photo.
The car then found a home in Central Massachusetts when it was purchased in February of 1990. It was titled in April of 1990 with 31,105 miles showing on the title. (Through discussions with the subsequent owner I found that this owner had been killed in a car accident while test driving a Mustang that he had built for a customer in approximately 2004)
Being an L.A. built car, there is no build sheet.
