24K OBO - 1970 Plum Crazy Challenger R/T clone
« on: August 18, 2017 - 02:39:13 pm »
Listing this for my father, if it doesn't get much interest or sell here it will likely go on eBay. If interested, shoot me a PM and I will answer any questions and/or put you in touch with my father. Located in Lorain, OH (20 minute west of Cleveland, OH). Asking 24,000 OBO based on the WIW thread about the car.

1970 Challenger, originally a 318/3-speed car but now has a mildly built 340/4-speed and cloned into an R/T. The old owner said the engine was rebuilt and when I added a cam, everything looked great and the car runs great so I believe him. All the following parts were added to the engine when the cam was installed (Guessing 2500 miles ago): 484 purpleshaft kit (cam, lifters, springs), pushrods, timing chain, torker intake, 670 holley carb, MP distributor, HP oil pump. The engine breathes through a set of hooker ceramic headers going into a 2" stainless steel magnaflow x-pipe system (has a nice growl, but not loud). The trans is an 23 spline 833 which was rebuilt last year and has a few hundred miles on it. Overall, the car runs great

As for the the body, it is in great condition and the last owner was the one who did the "resto" on it - welded in new floor & trunk pans, passenger 1/4 panel, patched everything else up included parts of the frame (with thick plate), and added a set of frame connectors. The car was repainted 8-10 years ago for a couple reasons but basically because the R/T hood & valance were added and mostly because a bodyman owed my dad money. There are no issues with the body except 2 paint chips; 1 on the top corner (toward the headlight bucket) on the drivers fender and the other on body line on the passenger door, both of the chips have been touched up and are not very noticeable. As for the interior, the seats were redone back when the car was painted and are in perfect condition. The dash is a 71+ rallye dash and is in good condition, the tach isn't accurate so the car currently has a summit tach tied to the steering column. The carpet is in good condition, as are the door panels. The console could use a good makeover. Lastly, the shifter boot and bezel are absent as a Mr. Gasket shifter is on the car(great shifter) and it doesnt work with the boot.

Other things to quickly note:
Wheels & tires have a couple thousand miles on them
Car has air shocks in the rear
Trans has a slow oil leak, think out of the countershaft
Heater was bypassed and there isnt a shroud on the car (never gets anywhere near overheating)
Car has all the R/T stuff (rallye dash, hood, valance, and front sway)

See pictures below for details and if there are any questions, feel free to ask or send a PM. Thanks!
