Product Details

Hemi-powered Mopars are hot, and the truth is, many of these special cars were uniquely ordered, enough so that it seems no two are alike. This car was one of 356 Hemi Challenger R/Ts built in the first year of production, 1970. Though a majority of those, 287, were standard hardtops, this example is one of just 11 of them that came with both the A883 4-speed transmission and Shaker hood. The desirable latter option is much rarer than the standard scalloped hood, as testing issues resulted in Chrysler canceling the Shaker on Challenger models early in the 1970 production cycle for much of the model year. This option, coded N96, is verified on the car's accompanying original broadcast sheet. Finished in yellow with body-color 15-inch steel wheels and sport mirrors, this car features a crisp appearance with its premium chrome-edge trim, Hemi and R/T callout badging, and small dog-dish hubcaps. The black longitudinal stripes, black Shaker and wide Goodyear Polyglas F60 tires add nicely balanced contrast to this package. Inside the car is all the right stuff--Pistol Grip shifter, Rallye dash with 150 MPH speedo and 8,000 RPM tach, AM radio, and high-backed bucket seats. All of this was refreshed during the car's restoration. Of course, the engine under that Shaker is the crowning touch. Chrysler rated the 426 Hemi at 425 HP and 490 lb-ft torque. Twin Carter AFBs feed the engine through an aluminum intake, and the roar of air both rushing into the engine and coming out through the chrome exhaust tips helped build the engine's still-intact street legacy. At almost $800 plus associated mandatory extreme-duty equipment, it is not surprising that Hemi models sold in small numbers. Today, these rate among the most blue-chip of collector cars; with proper paperwork, service records, and refreshed to OEM standards, this is a car that will give its new caretaker the same thrill it gave the original buyer years ago.
