This 1970 Charger was sold new in Overland Park, Kansas at Sunflower Dodge and was originally equipped with a 383 4 bbl, automatic transmission, and AC. It is finished in its original color scheme of F4 light green and F8, dark green. The Charger has been owned by the same owner since 1998 and is now available for the first time in quite a while, and it’s been driven less than 1000 miles since the restoration The last owner wanted a vehicle that could be street driven, but make a few passes down the drag strip if he pleased. This is an easy car to cruise and enjoy but will make a mid 11-second pass on pump gas. With a 100 shot of nitrous, she will run in the upper 10’s.
The body was professionally restored and prior to any bodywork, it was stripped down to bare metal. The car is exceptionally straight, and the two-stage paint has been sanded and polished out to a show quality finish.
The engine is a 400 stroker engine, built with a 400 block and a 440 crank. Compression is 10:1 so the car will run great on 91 octane, or 93 octane pump gas. The engine was built with Edelbrock aluminum heads, a dual four-barrel intake with Edelbrock carbs, Eagle rotating assembly, Ross pistons, and a Crane camshaft. Spark comes via an MSD Pro-Billet distributor and MSD 6AL ignition box. The fuel system has upgraded with Hemi fuel lines and a new fuel tank. The exhaust system is 3” with a crossover and uses Dynomax mufflers.
The transmission was built with a 2800-3000 stall converter with a mild shift kit and uses a custom-built “slap-stick” style shifter. The 8 ¾ rear Suregrip rear end was fitted with new Moser Axles, Hemi leaf springs, and Cal-Trac bars. Custom frame rails were welded in for extra support. The suspension and brake system was rebuilt from front to rear with all new bushings, new shocks, all new brake lines, new hoses. The front disc and rear drums were also rebuilt.
For the MOPAR enthusiast looking for an awesome performer with looks that can kill, this Charger is a very cool car.
