Additional Information From the Seller:

As far as investment grade vehicles go this must be considered one of the top muscle car contenders. An original MoPar big block 4 speed E Body convertible with high impact paint that is a fully documented, all original, numbers matching low mileage.

According to MoPar expert Dave Wise of MMC Detroit, this drop-top “is an exceptional example of an ultra-rare, highly documented semi-survivor 1970 Challenger R/T convertible”.

HISTORY/APPEARANCE
In addition to providing many pre-restoration photos, this Dodge's Wise Report makes many references to its originality. Perhaps one of the most predictable talking points is the car's mostly original sheet metal. Every panel on this Challenger is an original piece, with only the driver's quarter showing any signs of work at all. Naturally, that means the restoration-fresh Go Mango paint you see is the only re-spray the car has ever received. According to Dave Wise, this Challenger features all the right details, including original glass and OEM trim. The car's power-operated top was replaced, as were its correct Performance Hood Treatment and correct Black longitudinal stripes. And today, this clean Dodge rolls as one super slick brute that mixes reference grade authenticity with trophy-winning prowess! This car spent its first 40 years of life in Colorado.
ENGINE
Open the hood and you'll find an original, 440 cubic inch RB V8 that follows a correct 2536430 casting number and October 31st, 1969 casting date with a matching partial VIN. And, aesthetically, the bright engine bay presents as expected, from its correct decals and original oil pan all the way to its factory inspection marks. It has been upgraded with a date coded factory correct SIX PACK induction. All the original 4 barrel components and distributor come with the car if the new owner wishes to convert back.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION
Behind the big block, an original A833 4-speed hangs a matching VIN above a correct assembly stamp. That stalwart gearbox powers an original Dana 60 axle, which spins a power loc differential around original, 3.54 gears. And all that MoPar goodness rolls on stylish Rallye Wheels, which twist F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around polished trim rings and silver center caps.
INTERIOR
Bright White upholstery that rests on contrasting carpet and wrapped in High Impact Paint. Pop the top on this awesome Challenger and you'll find a correct White interior that's detailed with tasteful wood accents and crisp stainless trim. That cockpit begins with correct Rallye Gauges, which ride next to a correct Chrysler Solid State radio. In front of the driver, a wood-trimmed steering wheel mixes good form with great function. Shifts are executed through a correct Hurst Pistol Grip Shifter. And behind the passengers, a lighted trunk hides an original jack and space saver spare tire.
