I could seriously just write, “Someone go save it, now, please.” And I would be satisfied knowing that someone has. I know that there is some serious rot on this 1970 Dodge Challenger, I have eyes. The trunk lid, the driver’s door, all need attention. I’m almost grateful that there are no interior or trunk shots, since the metal that Chrysler used for E-bodies seemed to be stamped out of leftover 1957 stock. But we can’t ignore a big-tire ex-racer, regardless of how tired or beat it is. Nor can we ignore an E-body that is being sold under ten grand that doesn’t come in a U-Haul truck’s worth of individual boxes and pallets.
Some of the metalwork can be deal with via a phone call for some fiberglass parts. The floor panels can be bought and welded in. And trim and other small bit items are reproduced. But never, and I mean never, have I seen a more deserving home for a monster 440. If this machine is really a manual transmission car, it’s time to have a ball. 451 stroker, a blower, the best six-speed you can get, and make sure the ring gear is enough for a solid dragstrip pass. This Challenger hasn’t returned to the Earth from where it came…it’s still savable.
