Should this built-for-the-street Charger ever change hands, it'll be a historically significant addition to the garage that will house it. Not only that, but it will confirm that the owner is, beyond question, "Dodge Material."
'70 Dodge Charger R/T
Todd Werner Clearwater, Fl
Final assembly point: Chrysler's St. Louis Assembly Plant, Fenton, Missouri
Mopar Power Engine: '70 440 Magnum, original down to the Carter AVS four-barrel carb, 440 Magnum "pie-tin" atop the dual-snorkel air cleaner and miles of vacuum lines under the hood. Original emission sticker on fenderwell is the second one Chrysler used during the '70 model run (for 440/727s built after March 1, 1970). Transmission: Charger R/T buyers had a tough choice back then: 727 or 833. This one was ordered with a console-shift 727. Rearend: 8 3/4 inch with a 3.23-geared Sure Grip differential. (Who'd have thought this would make this car a one-of-under-100-built rarity?)
Sure Grip Suspension: When only the very best will do--OEM front torsion bars/rear leafs with front sway bar, and HD shocks all around. Brakes: State-of-the-art in 1970: Front discs/rear drums, power assisted. Wheels: The optional road wheels Mother Mopar got right the first time: 15-inch steel Rallyes, wearing OEM G60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs.
High Impact Body: Original '70 Charger unibody, as welded/primered/painted/trimmed by Chrysler's St. Louis, Missouri, Assembly Plant. Paint: One repaint in original FE5 Medium Red. Interior: Original white buckets, rear bench, black dash, carpets, and steering wheel, with OEM console, AM radio, and Airtemp air conditioner. Only non-original item is the Do Not Lower Windows At Speeds In Excess Of 120 MPH dash plaque.
