1970 challengers for sale

Hey guys,

I apologise in advance for the fact that none of these cars are mine but as I am a huge Challenger fanatic and I still come across some good buys I figured I'd start a thread here for potential buyers to look at what I come across

First up -

http://chicago.craigslist.org/sox/cto/4215944782.html

"Im selling a 1970 dodge challenger R/T with a 340engine(12,700obo) 727 trans and 391 rear end really strong car the interior is really clean looks almost brand new, nice car to drive, drives real smooth lots of brand new parts . Call/text at any time (708) 590-9388 hablo espanol come and check it out and drive it best around no leaks and sounds..."

$12,700 for a 1970 Challenger R/T (running/driving) is a pretty good buy if it is indeed a genuine R/T ("JS" VIN NUMBER)

MATCHING NUMBERS 'U' CODE 440 4 BARREL
Originally - Dark Burnt Orange Metallic w/ Orange Vinyl roof

Probably the cheapest completely matching numbers 440 Challenger I've ever seen in a road-going condition

PS - If ANYBODY is inspecting or looking at a 1970 Dodge Challenger, do not hesitate to inbox me for tips on what to look for in these cars

That's a tidy one.
Is that cheap or expected price?

Nev68 --- I've been watching the 1970 Challenger market for about 4 years now.
The only matching numbers 440 challengers I have seen for under $37,000USD are either totally ****ed (requiring massive restoration) or the one I bought & just one other car.

This is definitely well priced.
I will ONLY put up cars in this thread that are a "good deal" & are worth looking into.

Like I said, if anybody was to go ahead with an inspection they could PM me for a complete rundown of questions to ask & things for the inspector to look for

I've spoken to the seller of that first one before; it's a clone of course - you wouldn't find a true R/T at that price.

Maybe not. Definitely not an R/T, but if it's a factory 340 car, the R/T badges would make sense. Aside form the 340/6 Pack T/A, the only way to get a 340 in 1970 Challengers was what was called the A66 Performance Package.

It included the 340, 4 barrel, and the HD brakes and suspensions that came with the R/T. The odd thing is, for some unknown reason, quite a lot of them actually left the factory with R/T badges on the fenders and boot lid (usually not on the grill).

Nice rare packaged car - and what I wanted to buy before I bought my R/T - unfortunately there's not many originals left. They've all been swapped out for big blocks, or wasted as people don't realise what they had and turned them into R/T clones.

Regarding the first one ... 340's definitely didn't come in the R/T but it doesn't stop someone from swapping the original engine with a 340 (like they did with my original 383 car to a 440)

Just because a car might not have the original drivetrain doesn't mean it wasn't built as an R/T from factory

Here's another one guys -
http://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/cto/4198779594.html

If you want a matching numbers 340 car (non R/T) with matching motor, gearbox, door sticker, and most importantly build sheet --- this could be a big project

This one caught my eye:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...m=221317705036

318ci with a Tremec 5sp, several other upgrades, seems to be in pretty decent shape -- BIN on the auction is $22.5k

5 speed upgrade is nice.
I personally wouldn't pay around 20k for a non R/T with 318.
That paint looks a bit interesting --- check out the fender tag photo haha

Certainly catches the eye though !

Truthfully, that's part of why I'm selling my Challenger. I'd actually prefer a small block (340 to be exact). Putting around town is fine, but I have zero interest in 1/4 miles and burnouts, so whilst the big block was cool, it wasn't necessary. For me to keep the Chally, I'd have to swap it for a 340, put a 5 speed behind it, and set it up as a track car. Something to do Targa Tasmania in.

Strange hey? I wonder what the appeal was --- maybe it was an advertisement that went out for the package and the car displayed was that colour? Who knows.
The one above could be yours mate You always said you wanted A66 haha.

Come for a ride in either of the cars I own(ed) ---- you might change your mind about big blocks ---- especially when the new one is on the road haha
If you want to do targa get a GT-R or something else that won't have all the body roll of every car in the world combined into one 1970 American package

Whilst I agree that it's too much coin for what it is, for the right money, I'd have it as a daily driver. If I can't drive a car every day, I'm not interested.
