Real V-Code Line Ticket!
This car was born as a Six Pack, 4 Speed and Dana rearend car
and was used on a dragstrip its first few years.
The car was eventually purchased in the early 80's by a Mopar mechanic
who began buying all NOS parts for this car directly
from the shelves of his Mopar dealership.
Back in the 80's he had no idea what these cars were
going to become valuable so he decided that he
wanted to make the car "his" by putting the drivetrain in
that he wanted.
He sold the transmission and rear end and
located a 727 automatic transmission and
an 8 3/4 inch rear that he rebulit with 3.55 gears.
The block is correct and dated for 1971 with 1970 heads and a
very rare early production date Mopar intake
made by Edelbrock.
All internals are stock except for the cam being
bumped up one notch.
He wanted to be able to drive the car while
keeping it as period correct as possible.
He also installed a transmission cooler and
went to a bigger drum/shoe setup on the rear brakes.
The restorer also wanted to alter the color combination.
The car originally was a Dark green with a green interior
and he obviously went with the Sublime and a white interior.
During the complete nut and bolt restoration,
all parts were pulled, evaluated and either replaced or
completely refurbished, as necessary. T
here is not one part of this car that did not get
attention and an attempt to be returned to factory correctness.
He even hooked the reverse light up on the dash
so that it lights up while in reverse
(an option reserved for the manual shift cars).
The only things I can think of off the top of my head
that aren't factory or NOS are the Legendary interior kit
and the exhaust system.
The Scat Pack stickers in the 1/4 windows are original.
This car is not perfect nor is it numbers matching,
but it is all period correct and an absolute eye catcher
and attention getter among Mopar enthusiasts,
car people and non-car people alike.
It runs and drives fabulously and goes over
the road better than most other Mopars.
The original disc brakes do their job after you
kick in the Six Pack.
The transmission easily keeps you planted into the seat
as you accelerate through the gears.
This restoration took nearly 15 years to complete
and has been finished for about 15 years.
In the 15 years the car has had MAYBE 5,000 miles put on it,
so all components are still fresh and functioning 100%.
As the car grew in value he became skeptical about driving it
so as to not let anything happen to it.
Again, this car is not a 100 point show winner,
but once you see the attention to detail during the restoration,
you can't help but appreciate this car for what it is
and how nicely it can be driven and
used as the restorer intended.
The restorer kept all of his receipts from when
he purchased the NOS parts,
so you know how serious he was about keeping
this car as authentic as he could back in a time
when authenticity wasn't all that important.
You can't go wrong with a car like this for all
around satisfaction as a driver and investment.
Aside from a Hemi, what else in the Mopar world trumps
a '70 Challenger with a 440 and a Six Pack?
