After a thorough rotisserie restoration, this Dodge Challenger R/T looks great inside and out. That means a glass-like green paint job, plus all the badges and exterior trim, including the stripe delete. The green seats, carpeting, dash, and other details are in great shape. All Rallye Pack factory gauges and even the original radio are still installed and working.

This is a true-blue American muscle car, complete with the proper three pedals on the floor, so you get to row through all four gears using the Pistol Grip Hurst shifter while gloriously doing some incredible burnouts. This Challenger R/T has the Super Track Pack Six-Pack, side pipes, and a fiberglass lift-off hood. It also comes with a Dana HD rear end. The engine stamp matches the car’s VIN, which is a huge plus.

 

Dodge finally jumped into the pony car market segment with the Challenger for the 1970 model year. The R/T models were made for homologation requirements in Trans Am racing, meaning they are far more potent than the rest of the brand-new Challenger lineup in 1970. There is only one 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 Six-Pack Pistol Grip in existence, as documented by Galen Govier, so you could say this car is about as rare as they come. That fact alone makes this ride highly collectible, so grab it now before you can’t get it again. Even if you’re just looking at 1970 Challengers R/Ts, only 2,142 were made and many haven’t survived.
