I picked up my 1970 Challenger from southern MO in March 2004, after looking for 2 years. I wanted either a Plum Crazy or Panther Pink car, but my wife told me in no uncertain terms that she would not be seen in the same car with me if it was pink car, so to keep peace, I went with FC7.

Originally a 318 SE car, cloned to a 440-6 RT Slapstik convert. Previous owner did most of the work, I finished it up when I got it.

3.55 Sure Grip

Original California car, all original sheet metal.

Original FC7 Plum Crazy paint with white bumblebee stripe
Rebuilt the engine - a '67 block, align bored, balanced and blueprinted; decked the block and heads; stuffed it with forged pistons, steel crank, hotter than stock cam - she purrs when idling, and screams when I let all the ponies loose :grinyes:

New dash, new carpet, rebuilt gauges

Couple of minor things to do yet, but by and large, I am very happy with how the car looks and how it drives. Judging from the thumbs up when I drive it, so do a lot of other people!

Here's "the story."  I wuz 4 yrs. old (1974) My dad took me to a sport show/car show in Milwaukee.I got lost.Came up to all these people gathered around something.I was scared,pushing through all the people I found myself on stage with a purple 71 HEMI 'cuda. My fear turned to awe.My dad grabbed me off the stage.I knew I would have one. Later on I fell for the AAR. I got hotweels and toys.I'm a nut case. In highscool everybody had cars...Chevy...Fords... Just wasn't me. I had a 72' Dodge Demon and a 67' Coronett 440. Now I'm building my dream 'cuda.

1973 Plymouth 'cuda 340. Date/factory correct block.Car was metallic brown with white side stripe black gut.Auto now replaced with Keisler 5 speed.375 h.p,3:91's,frame connectors,XV rad. support,alterKation front end,TTI headers,Baer brakes X4,17" VWW V48 wheels.Rallye guages,White faces,red lights,racing buckets.  AAR tribute  guess  :worshippy

  I bought my car in July 1977. It is a # matching 340/AT/3.55 suregrip.  The engine has been bored .030,10.5:1,292 purple shaft cam, Holley 770 street avenger with Elderbrock RPM Airgap manifold.  TTI X-pipe exhaust. Trany has full manual transgo shift kit with 3000 stall converter.  This car is a two tag car with  A/C,PS,PDB,6-way seat,rear window defrost,front & rear spoiler pkg,road lamps,rear window louvers, with the full ralleye pkg. Nicely optioned car.  I parked it in the garage in 1985 with a broke transmission and it sat for 21 years.  One day on the computer I stumbled upon and this re-ignited my interest to get it fired back up. Got it started in late fall 06 and spent this last summer (07) going to all the cruises and shows I could. This winter I plan to start striping it down in preparation for a paint job this spring(I hope). Staying with orig. FC7 color but will probably add a billboard stripe.
