This stripped down 1970 Challenger R/T was found sitting in a Virginia backyard collecting leaves, snow and of course RUST.  The VIN breaks down as an N code 335 hp 383 cid Magnum V8 high power engine. It rolled off the Hamtramck, MI assembly plant back in 1970.


Dodge created the R/T as a performance package with 383 Magnum V8, upgraded heavy duty suspension and twin non-functional hood scoops. Also included was a Ralley instrument cluster with a 150 mph speedometer and 8,000 RPM tach. In addition to being an R/T hardtop, this car is also an SE (Special Edition). They only made 3,753 R/T SE hard tops in 1970. The SE luxury package included a vinyl roof, leather seats, overhead console and smaller “formal” rear window. Following the luxury theme whoever ordered the car included factory air conditioning, power steering, and power disc brakes.

This particular car sat in a body shop for several years, probably waiting on payment, and finally made its way to the backyard where it sits now. Several areas will need some attention due to rust damage including the floor pans, firewall, windsheild and back glass, trunk and rear frame sections.
