Good for you!!!  What a great score.  Two 70 Challengers for an amazing price.  That's awesome.  Good luck and welcome to the site.

Just a little update: Got the hardtop running and driving. It is just waiting on new tires and there should be some videos. Right now the the only issue is the alternator is self exciting...which caused all the lights to promptly come on (good) only to promptly blow out every bulb (bad). Right now its just unplugged.
Found the broadcast sheet in good shape. Ill post that up later since I'm not sure how to read them yet.
Also, I had overlooked it before but it has a slapstick shifter and rear window defrost. Thought that was pretty sweet.

All I can say is that your finds along with your Charger are simply gnarly. I'm quite envious as I'm a huge auto genre film/tv show buff and that is one heck of a score right there. Awesome find. I can't wait to see what you do to the hardtop. :2thumbs:

Welcome and a great find, I am speechless too....
As far as the area you found them, it must have been off the 126, In the 80's that area was call Castaic and I lived there for a few years and YES there were all kinds of cars hidden back in the bush back there in the 80's......

I don't have many decent pictures because its usually crammed in the garage half assembled.  ::)
Here's some I snapped with my phone though.

There's more done to it now, sound system is in, e-brake is in, back seats are in, steering column is in, etc. Working on getting the back window in at the moment.
