It may have been a late entry into the muscle car wars that had begun in earnest about a half decade before its release, but its impact made the wait worthwhile. This 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Tribute is a fine example of MoPar's vintage automotive design and engineering skills, and it's been ably configured as the Challenger's potent, performance-centric version, so it's not only awesome to behold, but a blast to drive, as well.
As the '70s began, muscle cars were becoming more expansive and better equipped - the car buying public had no intention of giving up their infatuation with performance, but they also wanted the smoother ride and greater interior room offered by the passenger cars of the time. This Challenger is a fitting reflection of that change. It's a substantial car - broad, with a long hood - but so well configured that it presents a very agile appearance. This '70 with its clean white painted contrasted by black striping on its hood and tail, is a very sharp specimen that shows just how effective Dodge's planning turned out. Everything is clicking here - the paint is in very nice condition, the array of chrome front to back is looking good and the badging on its front fenders is particularly vibrant. While the standard Challenger hood was fairly flat, you'll find the upgraded "power bulge" hood on display here, complete with a pair of trim scoops and hood pins.
The black vinyl interior has been refurbished while retaining its original configuration and is in great shape. The high-backed front buckets have a nearly new look to them, with no real signs of usage and that firm yet comfortable look that comes with having borne the weight of very few passengers. You'll see one of the most obvious by-products of the Challenger's generous wheelbase inside - there's plenty of space everywhere you look, and even taller passengers will have no trouble getting comfortable in back. Those finishing touches that make a classic interior look complete have been looked after, as well - the door panels look very fresh, as do the headliner and the interior chrome fittings, and every woodgrain insert is very well applied. A column mounted tach, one of the only variations on this interior's stock theme, stands by to monitor revs, and an AM/FM/CD player takes its place in the dash to provide your audio options while you're on the road. All appears well in the trunk area and there's plenty of space to accommodate any luggage needed for a proper road trip.
Because its inspiration was Dodge's high-performance rendition of the Challenger, it's only fitting this R/T tribute be equipped with plenty of go-power. And it is. A sizable 440-cubic inch V8, armed with an Edelbrock carb whose electric choke really comes in handy in cold weather, sits within the very clean walls of the engine bay, surrounded by fresh looking hoses and not a wire out of place. It's painted a very fitting Dodge orange and is paired with a rock solid 3-speed automatic transmission to make for a low-effort, high potency drive train. An aluminum radiator sits up front to keep temperatures in check. The undercarriage is in very good order, with solid floor pans and clean-looking suspension components everywhere you look. 4-wheel power brakes, combined with power steering, provide plenty of stopping power and easy navigation as this great looking Dodge classic takes to the road on its 15" stock rims outfitted with BF Goodrich T/A radials.
This 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Tribute is a very skillful recreation of the upscale Challenger model of its era and would be an outstanding acquisition for any MoPar enthusiast. Call today!
