The car that you always wished you had the time to build is now up for grabs. This 1970 Dodge Challenger is classic sheetmetal wrapped around a modern fuel-injected 6.1-liter Hemi V8 and a modern suspension. Oh yesand#44; this is the restomod of your dreams.<br /> <br><br> Its hard not to love one of the most intimidating looking muscle cars of all time when its in a two-tone black and red. Especially since this custom paint also has so much invested in it that theyre both shiny enough to be mirrors. A silver pinstripe provides the dividing line for the two colors everywhere the trim doesnt alreadyand#44; which gives this coupe a very cool custom appearance. 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 the slick black and bloodthirsty red. Good gaps are also essentialand#44; and youre looking at a refinished assembly thats far superior to what the factory had time to achieve. This is built to be the ultimate R/Tand#44; so that wouldnt be complete without the power bulge hood. Add in custom touches like the modern chin spoilerand#44; larger rear spoilerand#44; and massive 19-inch Volk Racing wheels filling the wheel wellsand#44; and this is a uniquely intimidating package. <br /> <br><br> Chryslers black bucket seat interior gets high marks for both style and comfortand#44; and even today this is a great place to spend some quality time. Of course thats because this restomod has had everything inside either replaced or refurbished to be the best. And with only 268 miles on this complete custom buildand#44; its like getting a brand new car from 1970. Welland#44; thats almost true except a restomod blends all the iconic elements you love with new modern pieces. For example you get the factory steering wheeland#44; center consoleand#44; and iconic pistol-grip gearshift. But then you spot some great upgrades like the AM/FM stereo with a place to plug in your iPod and the ice-cold air conditioning. Plusand#44; the glow of the full set of Marshall gauges tells you there is something very special under the hood.<br /> <br><br> Everyone wants a Hemi Challengerand#44; but this one is a cut-above. Thats the fuel-injected 6.1-liter Hemi V8 crate motor similar to what was utilized in the SRT8 Challengers. This powerplant reliably delivers 425 hp and a monstrous 420 lb-ft of torque. So if you thought the original Challengers could smoke their tires before smoking everyone else on the streetsand#44; just wait until you try this one! But the full custom build made sure that this big motor was supported by reliable components. Thats why has a Mancini high torque starterand#44; FAST aluminum intakeand#44; FAST 90 mm throttleand#44; and Champion aluminum radiator w/electric fan. Youre in control of all this power thanks to the stout TKO 600 five-speed manual that feeds the reliable Ford 9-inch rear end. The performance X-pipe exhaust system makes an amazing rumbleand#44; but dont just listenand#44; check it out in the undercarriage shots. While youre down thereand#44; check out the nicely upgraded suspension. Up front is a new reinforced independent setup with A-arms and adjustable coilovers. Plusand#44; theres thick anti-sway bars front and rear. Add to this power steeringand#44; front disc brakesand#44; and grippy low-profile performance tires at each cornerand#44; and this is one complete restomod package.<br /> <br><br> Youve probably been totaling up in your head the timeand#44; laborand#44; and components it would take to re-create this ultimate Challenger like you see here (we even have the build receipts for this one for comparison.) Its now that you realize this restomod is worth every penny and more. Youre not the only one whos tantalized by this coupe. The only problem is with a one-of-a-kind is once its goneand#44; there wont be another. Call today!!!
