A friend stopped by Sunday night to show me a Charger Rt they brought from a broker out east. 440 4 speed nice paint and dash. Now the bad battery and fuel cell in trunk no cut off on battery, line lock that has leaked at one time. Rust hole in trunk. Hacked together wireing,worn vinyl top,terrible chrome,gas cap,wrong seats,belts,new turn signals in hood with no wiring feeding them,rusted headers,loudest fuel pump I ever heard.
Engine has Edelbrock heads and victor manifold but did drip oil on my driveway.

They were happy with the car so I didn’t say anything negative.

Paid $40,000 man I wish I had some to sell.

Anything with nice paint and bodywork is worth 15-20 grand. Add to that it's a Charger R/T, Wheels and tires, runs strong? Price isn't out of line if that's what they wanted. All those issues you noted are simple repairs and it is an old car done by someone else. You have to expect to do a few things to each persons different standards.

I like it and the seats. Not fond of black rocker paint, but a great color and looks straight. 4 speed! Tires look well used. Must have a little oomph.

If I could see that much wrong in the dark Sunday night I’d be afraid of what’s under the paint.
Also if you take the time to put new lights in the hood and not have them hooked up what other shortcuts did they take.

Not matching #.

With the side scoops and hood turn signal indicators painted black, I'd guess it was restored by a Chevy guy. Otherwise it's a beautiful car and 1970 was the best looking Charger ever.

good looking car, agree on centering the stripe. and the black on the bottom still says to me bondo cover up.and the bad listed can be fixed. high on the price, but if they are happy good for them.

Plum Crazy one for sale locally for 3k more and it appears nicer than that car.

Non-numbers matching is fine for some people. You can take it out and run it hard vs hiding it in the garage or trailering it around instead. Practically every Mopar here that has had a lot of money spent on it is an oem restoration, and those cars seldom crawl out from under their car covers these days.

I'd say they paid high market value. That car looks like it was put together (not built) by either a flipper or a Chevy guy.

The door panels are wrinkling up.
The carpet is poorly fitted.
The tail stripe is not in it's proper location.
The lower door panels are body color - not painted black.
Ugly modern seats.
Cheapo aftermarket steering wheel.

Whoever put the car together is not a "details" kind of guy. Which makes you wonder exactly what kind of lack of detail they put into things like wiring and gauges, ignition, fuel system, brakes, engine/clutch/tranny/diff. It's obvious "good enough" is good enough for them. As a buyer laying out a fair chunk of money - I'd want things done right.

I love '70 Chargers.... but I'd probably pass on that one. For 40 large, a person could find one that's either not been fooled with or is closer to being correct.


But that's just my initial impression based on three pictures. Who the hell am I, right? If it runs good, stops good and has had the suspension gone through, maybe it's not such a bad deal. It's just that I am a details guy and if I'm going to go through the hassle of making my seat seems straight, I'm going to be just as pedantic dialing in my vacuum advance or degreeing the cam in so the car both looks AND runs great.

If I had bought this car I would have the door scoops painted body color and the rocker panels too. If the stripe is a decal I would remove it and replace it positioned properly and paint the bottom of the doors inside black. Easy fixes that would go a long way! I know that I can only afford about a quarter of a 70 Charger myself!

My friend and former co worker lit my old desk on fire clowning around! He says that my new desk is too cool to burn so he's not going to torch this one! Lol!

Bought mine for 12K back in 1996...I did a bunch of suspension & interior restoration/upgrades, but exterior-wise nothing really changed since then - numbers matching too

Every once and a while I get the bug to sell it, maybe now's the time?

Second generation Chargers are red hot right now this is the time if you are considering selling the car. A matching numbers R/T in a great color should bring a premium. I have a matching numbers 70 V code Charger R /T project car that I am resisting the urge to sell,but I am struggling with it because I have been bitten by the Hellcat bug hard. Selling the V code would be a last resort if I can't raise the money some other way!
