"It's funny how, through years of fans and enthusiasts, certain automotive terminology tends to build its own appeal. For example, in most gearheads' minds the term ""Plum Crazy"" recalls one of Chrysler's most creative and confident eras. ""R/T"", short for Road/Track, invokes visions of muscle cars prowling small town streets. ""Dana 60"" or ""Super Track Pak"" incites visions of late-night stoplight brawls and octane-fueled quarter-miles. And who could forget ""Hemi"", the incredible V8 that led Chrysler through an era of epic performance. Well, our latest top-notch MoPar funnels all of those appealing attributes in to one exclusive, investment grade classic. That's right, it's a documented, authentic Hemi/4-speed Challenger R/T that seals a correct Super Track Pak chassis in correct Plum Crazy Metallic paint. Looking for some first class Chrysler muscle? Look no further!
The beneficiary of a detailed restoration that was completed sometime around the year 2000, this spectacular, Hemi-powered Challenger has been lovingly massaged into a better-than-new show stopper. During that acute rebuild, the car's all-original body was stripped to bare metal, coached into shape and thoroughly block-sanded into virtually flawless surfaces. Once those surfaces were completely clean and fully prepped, a spectacular coat of correct Plum Crazy Metallic 2-stage was buffed to a wet looking shine. And today, this clean Dodge rolls as one super slick brute that, according to a 2015 Vehicle Inspection Report conducted by David Wise of MMC Detroit, carries an appraised value of $240K!
Given its resurgence in popularity, no doubt aided by the current LC-based version, the Challenger is considered by some to be the quintessential American muscle car: a status that naturally invokes an aggressive and exciting aesthetic. At the front of this Chally, a 1970-exclusive grille hangs a brash ""Challenger R/T"" badge between pristine headlights, amber parking lamps and a mirrored bumper. Behind that grille, a pinned, Hemi-branded hood props bold ""D O D G E"" lettering in front of clean glass that is framed in correct stainless and capped by correct vinyl. At the sides of that hood, a sculpted profile hangs correct R/T stripes amid fresh rocker trim, flush door handles, a correct mirror and ornate ""Challenger"" scripts. And at the back of the car, a stainless-trimmed valence centers body-width taillights and more ""D O D G E"" lettering between a second ""Challenger R/T"" badge, a second mirrored bumper and correct, quad-outlet exhaust tips.
Toss this coupe's light hood and you'll find a legendary, 426 cubic inch Hemi that, while not original to the car, is a date-correct piece. As Dodge's top option for power hungry gearheads, Chrysler's legendary elephant block utilizes cast iron heads, an oversquare bore, a forged steel crank, forged steel rods, forged aluminum pistons and a hydraulic cam to twist stout 10.25 to 1 compression into a stated 425 horsepower and 490 lb./ft. of torque. All that high performance hardware spins in a glossy, Hemi Orange block that's dotted with attractive, Organisol-coated valve covers. A perfect mixture of fuel and air is supplied by correct Carter carburetors and a correct aluminum intake. Compression is sparked by high quality Chrysler Electronic Suppression cables, which are snapped onto a correct points distributor. Resultant combustion is cooled by a big, 26-inch radiator that's fitted with fresh, Chrysler-branded hoses and old school squeeze clamps. And exhaust is handled by correct, low-restriction exhaust manifolds that feed an H-shaped crossover and throaty Dynomax mufflers. Visually, the car's Plum Crazy engine compartment is clean and understated... Well, as understated as a classic Hemi can be. The big mill performs as well as it ever has. And naturally, details like factory decals, a tagged MoPar battery and a familiar Chrysler washer reservoir have been professionally restored or completely replicated.
Slide under this spotless E-Body and you'll find a solid chassis that's ready for the turntable. Satin Black paint highlights exceptionally clean floors that have been finished to better-than-new condition. Behind the Hemi, a correct A833 4-speed is tight and shifts like new. That stalwart gearbox sends power to a correct Dana 60 Super Track Pak axle, which spins correct 4.10 gears. Naturally, that spirited driveline pushes a tagged and fully restored extra heavy duty Hemi Suspension. Stops come courtesy of correct power front disc and rear drum brakes. And all this MoPar goodness rolls on stylish Rallye Wheels, which twist F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around polished trim rings and silver center caps.
Swivel this Dodge's level doors and you'll find a correct Black interior that's functional, straightforward and very livable. The front bucket and rear bench seats are wrapped in pliable vinyl covers that display hardly any signs of wear. Below those seats, stain-free carpet floats Challenger-themed mats at the sides of a correct, wood-trimmed console and cool Pistol Grip Shifter. At the sides of that carpet, wood-trimmed door panels hang small fratzogs above traditional cranks and integrated handles. In front of those panels, a wood-trimmed dash seats correct Rallye gauges above a correct Chrysler Solid State radio. In front of the driver, a correct steering wheel mixes subtle form with major function. And behind the passengers, a nicely finished trunk centers a correct jack and space saver spare tire between a correct mat and new decklid decal.
This investment grade MoPar is documented by an official MMC Detroit/David Wise Vehicle Inspection Report that includes copies of the car's original Broadcast Sheets. Here's a detailed breakdown of this Dodge's pertinent standard and optional equipment.
