I picked up this Challenger around 1-1/2 years ago. The previous owner had it around 30 years. He had the paint work done and also had a 1969 440hp installed along with some other work at the time. In the 30 years he had the car he put around 4000 miles on it. The original sheet metal is beautiful on the car and the paint is still nice, not even a chip. I decided to correct the things that are not original to the fender tag. I picked up a date coded 70 383hp and the correct 70 trans. Had them rebuilt and are now installed. It's a nicely optioned car, FE5 red, V6X black stripe and originally red interior which I am planning on getting to later. Also power steering and brakes, power top, console shift and cruise control. It also originally had a white top.

The black interior was out of a 1970 318 Challenger convertible that got parted out years ago. The seats have the original covers and are really nice.
