This is my Dad's (The Mopar Man) 70 Charger 500, it has been sitting under a cover for around a decade. This is one of the projects my father did while recovering from bladder cancer. There were a few Moparts Members that had a hand in getting this car to me, for that I am really greatfull. We had to put in a new gas tank, Carb, electronic ignition, wires and a few other odds and ends but she fired right up and I have been cruising her all around Diego-Town. I have always had a love for Moparts and hope to become a participating member again.

Best looking year in my opinion & great color too.

You will get a lot of 'Smiles-Per-Gallon' with it!

Beautiful car and great story. Hope Dad is well. A buddy had a green 500 when we were in school.
