1970 Dodge Challenger Plum Crazy Purple
« on: August 07, 2011 - 01:26:40 PM »
I have 1970 Dodge Challenger original plum crazy purple car. I didnt realize this till last night, but i got excited about a 1973 for sale that i missed on e-bay. So, i guess this is what i have 1970 purple challenger needs to be done, but has about everything you need. The body is rust free. needs little metal small hole in drivers floor pan.lower quarters. I am willing to trade this car for a 1970-1974 cuda or challenger that is done already. I figure this car should bring 6k. the car i almost sold it for yesterday was simply a 1973 challenger that was painted green apple on e-bay,with a 340. so i am not looking for anything special just a car that i can get in and drive. a 1970 plum crazy purple car is by far cooler then a 1973 but i am just impatient and want something i can get in and drive today,lol. My car has all original fenders doors, quarters, floors,glass, fender tag, it is a great project. just looking for a driver, not a project. here are some pictures, thanks Mel
frame is great, its a solid car

The thread stickied at the top of this board asks you to state your selling price and location to help others, or your thread will be removed. I'm just sayin' ....

Cars, parts or cash.... not a problem, but I'm not sure exactly what you have?  Is your car an RT, numbers matching, or slant 6?  Where is it located?

I apologize, maybe i posted this in wrong area. It is a 1970 Dodge Challenger(My Intent) is to trade the car for a 1970-1974 dodge challenger or plymouth barracuda. As i said in the post i feel the car is worth around 6,000, Based upon the market that i watch on this website, and e-bay.

The car i own is a 1970 Dodge Challenger original color is Plum Crazy Purple. The car was originally a 340 car, no vinyl top, white seats, no rally dash, no rally hood, simply a plum crazy purple Challenger from 1970 with 340 that is long gone, i do however have a 440 that came with the car, no trans. it also came with seats original radio, trim etc. all panels on the car are original, it was missing a hood, But I did buy a freshly painted Plum Crazy Purple flat hood at a car show a few weeks ago, i was not impressed with trunk lid, so i also purchased a brand new trunk lid for it, it has very little rust and i speant one year trying to find a car, this is what i came up with, compared to other cars i have seen for sale, and the condition of the frame  and bodies, etc, This 70" challenger is a very good start with a very cool  original color, Solid frame!!, does have a perfect grill also.
So if anyone has a running Barracuda or a running Challenger between the years 1970-1974 that needs Not be put together i would beinterested in trading the 70 for that. I hope this helps. Here is fender tag information. thanks Mel

Hi Mel, sorry if I missed it but where are you located?  :clueless:
1972 Dodge Challenger Rallye 340, AT, Code TB3=Super Blue, SBD=8/17/1971.  Yes, a Rallye without the fender louvers from the factory because of the body side molding option.

Sounds like a cool project.  Not what I'm looking for at this time, but someone would be very happy with it as it sounds like a great car.  I fixed the fender tag info for you so it shows the correct trans....

Good luck with your search!  It might be easier to sell and then buy the car your looking for.  Either way I hope you get what you want in the end.   :2thumbs:

You looking to trade up, down or even?

I have a 73 in the For Sale section that I might be willing to trade for your car plus cash.

I was kind of just hoping to find some sort of even trade. I am not dissapointed in this car. If i end up keeping it, painting it, etc. it will just have to be a while before i can drive it. Your car is really cool. thanks Mel
