70 Challenger convertible
« on: October 31, 2006 - 12:50:47 PM »
I bought a 70 Challenger convertible in 1982 at NAS Millington TN.  I purchased the car from a young Marine who was shipping out.  The car had a 318 in it but I believe from the rear end and Radiator it was originally a 6cyl.  I have replaced the 318 with a 340 and gone with a 8 3/4 over the 8 1/4 I am in the process of restoring.  I have owned this car for a long time and it is not for sale just wondering what it is worth.

Email them to me and I'll shrink them down to size and post them for you if you would like!  Probably a good idea!  My address is in my profile.
