For its introductory year in 1970, the Challenger was available in two series, Challenger and Challenger R/T and three models, two-door hardtop, Special-edition two-door hardtop, or convertible. The performance model was the Challenger R/T (Road/Track) with a 383ci (6.3l) Magnum V8 rated at 335bhp, however other engines were optional including the legendary 390bhp, 440ci (7.2L) Six-Pack. The RT was fitted as standard with a ‘Rallye’ instrument cluster that included a 150mph speedometer, an 8,000rpm tachometer and an oil pressure gauge. A ‘shaker’ hood-scoop was an option but was not available after 1971.In popular culture, the Challenger will always be associated with ‘Vanishing Point’, the 1971 American action film that starred Barry Newman as Kowalski, a disaffected ex-cop and part-time racing driver attempting to deliver a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T440 Magnum to California. It’s now a cult movie but the Challenger is undoubtedly the star of the show.A truly stunning example that we are pleased to present. A car which is ready to drive and enjoy after what is a truly perfect restoration.
