All the Mopar fans out there already know what kind of a rare sight it is to find a 1970 Dodge Challenger convertible. So when there has been a ton invested to give it the triple-black treatmentand#44; glittering chromeand#44; and a 440 six packand#44; then you know this is the ultimate muscle machine.<br /> <br><br> Its hard not to love one of the most intimidating looking muscle cars of all time in a shade of black thats shiny enough to be a mirror. Of course paint is only as good as the sheetmetal underneathand#44; and it takes a laser straight body like this one because imperfections cant hide from this slick black. Good gaps are also essentialand#44; and youre looking at a refinished assembly thats far superior to what the factory had time to achieve. Youre going to want to take a very close look at this dark affairand#44; because the true passion is in the details. The scooped hood with hood pins looks aggressive all on its ownand#44; but when the sunlight hit itand#44; there is a burgundy flake set into the raised section that clues people in that this muscle Mopar is out for blood. And aggressive shine is the true name of the game for this Challenger. The mirror-like chrome front bumper is nicely integrated into the front end thats wide enough to inhale all the lesser cars on the road. The bright rear bumper tucks in quickly so everyone can see the quad tail pipes. Plusand#44; we all love the shine from Dodges iconic Rallye wheel package.<br /> <br><br> With the flip of a switchand#44; the electric black folding top reveals a clean black interior. So yesand#44; the exteriorand#44; roofand#44; and interior make for a true and desirable triple-black package. Its a rare gem that has plenty of features youll loveand#44; including bucket seats and center console. This one stays as close to original-style spec as possibleand#44; so the driver-oriented interior still has the correct heat/defrost controls and AM radio. The woodgrained steering wheel matches the door panelsand#44; consoleand#44; and dashand#44; and the instrument panel is full of original gauges including a factory tachand#44; and a working clock. But more than just looking greatand#44; youll be pleasantly surprised by the condition of soft parts like the door panels and dash pad. These details are how you can really tell there has been a serious investment in creating a cut-above classic. <br /> <br><br> While youve already fallen in love/lust with this Moparand#44; the best feature is under the hood. You and everyone else will instantly know that you are looking at the legendary 440 cubic-inch big block with the three-duce Six Pack carbs on top. It looks immaculate in the engine bay – like its the spring of 1970 and this droptop just came off the Hamtramck line. The fantastic presentation is for a very good reason. We have $7K in receipts just for the engine rebuild in 2013. So not only does it look freshand#44; but it also fires up with the kind of ease that not even new Dodges had back then. And speaking of firing it upand#44; the Flowmaster stainless dual exhaust will let everyone know youve got the big one under the hood with its serious growl. Youve got complete control over the V8 thanks to the thanks to the A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission thats stout enough to handle all that power. The same goes for the rear end that has $3K invested in Moser unit. And with power steering and front disc brakesand#44; youre looking at a great vintage cruiser thats been invested in to make sure its ready anytime you are.<br /> <br><br> This is arguably the best year ever for the Challengerand#44; and Dodge made less than 3and#44;200 (JH27) convertibles. So when you see the tens of thousands $$$$$ invested you realize just what a rare gem this is. Plusand#44; with the full paperwork file that includes the owners manualand#44; build sheetand#44; and all the restoration receiptsand#44; you know this is the one youll keep forever. But youre not the only
