AJ's Car of the Day: 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Convertible

Car: Dodge Challenger R/T Convertible

Year: 1970

What makes it special: Introduced in 1970, the Dodge Challenger was late to the "Pony Car wars", making up for lost time with Dodge's complete engine line-up at it's disposal. The Challenger R/T convertible sold at almost twice the rate of it's sister Plymouth 'Cuda convertible for that year.

What made it famous: The 383 and 440 V8 was available with horsepower ranging from 335 to 390, (the 390 hp 440 Six Pack being the top tier.) The 4-speed manual transmission was an available option, but few took advantage of it. Out of 963 R/T convertibles, only 61 were equipped with the 440 Six Pack 4-speed combo. Wow....

Why I would want one: The available triple-carb 390 hp, 440 Six Pack  topped with a factory cold air Shaker induction unit, plus the hood pins, R/T badges and Rallye wheels made it look like it meant business....which it proved on both street and strip. 

Fun fact: The Challenger name originated as the Dodge Silver Challenger, produced in 1959, and a "Western Special" version was available only to west coast dealers. It came with a rear-exit exhaust system and Western Special identification on the rear decklid.
