1970 dodge challenger
A: Phone Boyd Coddington in CA. Those guys can make anything inside a couple of months.
Q: Where should I look or where can I get a 1970 Dodge Challenger?
Hi I am looking for places I should look to find a 1970 Dodge Challenger for cheap. It can be a hing of junk or whatever, needing work. Please let me know, thank you.
A: There are a lot of online sites that have some classic and muscle car listings. But the two that have the most are hemmings.com and carsonline.com. Most car collectors use them because of their reputation. If there is one available in the US, you’ll find it on one of them, or both.
Q: What it the difference between the 1970 dodge challenger T/A and the R/T?
I cant quite figure out the difference between the 1970 dodge challenger R/T and the 1970 doge challenger T/A
but 1 more question. is the 1969 ford mustang mach 1 428 cobra jet ram air or the boss 420 better then each dodge challenger?
and what about the 1972 dodge charger
A: The Challenger was introduced in 1970 with two models:
SE formal hardtop
SE formal hardtop
The standard engine in the R/T was the 383 Magnum. Optional was the 440-4, 440 Six Pack, and 426 Hemi. The 340 was not available on the R/T, no matter what anyone tells you – they’re wrong.
The base Challenger could be had with the Slant 6 or the 318 standard. From there, you could get the 383-2 and the 383-4 (almost like an R/T incognito). The 340 also was available on the base Challenger (hardtop and ragtop only) as the 340 Performance Package . . . and this is where the T/A comes in.
As Dodge decided to offer the 340 package on the base Challenger, it only makes sense that the Challenger T/A package was offered on the base Challenger. This package – only available on the hardtop – came with a fiberglass hood similar to the 1969 A12 Super Bees and Road Runners, special striping, side-exit exhaust (except in CA, I believe), a special spoiler package, and a 340 engine with Six Pack carburetors, among other heavy-duty equipment. This model was produced to certify certain modifications legal for Trans-Am racing (get it? T/A? But Pontiac already dibs for the name). The front and rear tires were of different sizes – very unusual at the time – and was the best-handling Challenger of them all. Despite a 1971 advertisement showing the T/A would return, none were built.
Regarding your Mustang question, I’d say the CJ is equivalent to the Challenger’s Six Pack. Parts are much easier to find for the Mustang. The Boss 429 was practically hand-built, and in some ways it can’t be compared to the Challenger because of the modifications that were required for it to be built. However, bone-stock Boss 429 cars tended to disappoint road testers at the time because it wasn’t as fast as it looked (despite 13-second times, like a Hemi Challenger R/T). However, Boss 429s have been super-expensive for a very long time.
The 1972 Charger . . . depends on the model. There was the R/T replacement called the Rallye which had a 400 standard and could have a 340 and 440 optional (about 5 or so Six Packs were built before it was cancelled on the first week). You could also get the 440 on the SE. This was the first year for the low-compression engines, so 1971s tend to be more desirable but the 1972 have their own appeal and can still be fast.
Q: Does cloning my 1972 Dodge Challenger into a 1970 Dodge Challenger RT devalue it or increase the value?
I am just wondering, I am not big on cloning cars, but my favorite car is the 1970 Dodge Challenger RT, and would love to make my car into that, but I would not want to do that, if it devalues my car, can anyone help?
A: Well thats kind of a tough one…Everyone knows that the 70 is the one to have…The 72 is desierable but not worth as much as the 70…Here,s the way I look at it…If you got a base model 72 challenger with a 318…Then why not?A Cloned 72 with a a 440 with a four speed is still worth more than a base model 72 challenger….Hey go for a Vanishing point clone!!!!!!!MOPARS RULE!
Q: Would changing the engine on a 1970 dodge challenger allow for use of unleaded gas?
If I do change the engine, does that allow for better gas mileage and use of unleaded gas? I’m not too big of a car guy, but I found a perfectly priced classic challenger for my first car and I just want some help.
A: yes if you go to a newer model engine it does allow you to use the unleaded fuel in it ,if it has the original engine you can also buy an additive to run it that makes up for the lack of the lead that used to be in the fuel,i own a 71 plymouth duster with a 340 in it and i run pump gas through it,i also use an additive in it most of the time,glad you found a challenger worth fixing, i been looking for several months now and haven’t found one i though was worth restoring yet,good luck.
Q: What cars look like a 1970 Dodge Challenger?

A: 1965 gto or a new challenger
Q: how much does a 1970 dodge challenger cost?

A: go to manheimgold .com to complete your search
Q: How do you remove the exterior door handle of a 1970 dodge challenger?
The interior door panal is off, but we still can not access the exterior door handle. The door seems to be all one piece and we want to remove the door handle to paint and repair. Don’t want to damage the door or the handle…just want to know how to get it off and back on again (back on again should be obvious, after we figure out how to get it off!!)
A: Most of the door handle back panels have screws that hold the molding in place and on.
On the window handles behind the handle is a type of clip these clips would look something like a shower curtain clip and the two open clip ends must be forced apart and then pushed forcing the other end off the door handle.There is a tool you can buy and maybe even borrow from some parts stores that is designed to be flush flat and slid in behind the handle between the door panel and once you’ve got the tool in place you then slide it straight and then the handle will come off if jiggled slightly and pulled straight outwards.
A trick I use id pull slightly on the handle and push slightly and the door panel then use a flat small headed screwdriver to push the clips one by one, then get the screwdriver to the other side of the handle and push the closed end of the clip outwards.
Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way nice car.
Q: What would you estimate the worth of a 1970 Dodge Challenger convertible (partially restored) is worth?
My husband died well into restoring this car. I don’t know much about it, don’t drive it (powergrip?)and may have to sell. He used to say that it was one of (I recall less than 2000 made that year) a few and therefore of some value. Always garaged in Colorado so no rust that I know of. Any Mopar people out there?
A: if you can find out what all options it has and what engine it has in it, i could better answer you on it,i have seen them bring well above 25 thousand and them not even running,the price is going to based on the rarity of it and what engine option it came with,good luck.
Q: Where can I get a 1970 Dodge Challenger from the movie Death Proof?
Are they hard to come by?
A: you can actually buy one of those cars for about 30-50 thousand depending on the engine option it has in it right now,the prices of them is coming way down real fast,even some collectors are dumping their collection of them on the market,type it in and you,ll come up with several of them for sale right now,good luck.
Q: Were can i rent a 1970 dodge challenger?
Is there any place or website were i could rent a dodge challenger, in san diego or something close???
A: No where for now but wait till the new Dodge Challengers come out, it will be quit a blast from the past.
The answer to “where can i rent a 1970 dodge challenger”, I am afraid that if you did find someone that had this car IE: me, then the answer would be “NO” because of their value and the blood, sweat and tears that myself as well as many other people have put into the cars.
Q: Anyone know where I can find a junk 1970 Dodge Challenger?
Looking for one in or around Ohio. I’ve always liked the looks of this car, and I want to rebuild one myself for an early 18 B-day present. I’ve been searching for a while with no luck. I’d call around, but it’s kind of late.
A: this guy had a few of those he,s not close to ohio but he can arrange to get one to you if he has one and if he don’t he,ll find you one, good luck. http://drmopar.com
Q: How do I persuade my parents to buy me a white 1970 Dodge Challenger?
A: that may be hard to do,especially considering the cost of this vehicle and the value of it,that’s one of the most wanted challengers on the market right now so your going to have to be real convincing on this one,i cant even afford one of those right now,all i can tell you is give them the resons why they should buy you this one and cross your fingers and hope they believe you,good luck with it.
Q: I have a blue 1970 dodge challenger r/t with a white vinyl top. I was wondering how many of these were made?
The car also has power disc brakes blow rim steering wheel,am/fm multi plex radio rear defrost and power windows, all factory options. Is this a white hat special and can i find out how many cars like mine were made? Thanks for any leads and or info.
A: Galen Govier is the most knowledgeable as far as I know. The “rim blow” horn was a fairly rare option as was the AM/FM multiplex radio, power windows and rear defroster were more common as was power brakes, disc brakes were found fairly often as well but still not found all that often, not like power steering which about all Challengers had. All in all it has a nice list of options which makes the entire package very nice, however the key question is engine, transmission, rear end package. Are we talking hemi power, four speed with a Dana rear which would make it pretty rare especially if it has an “N96 cold air option” (Shaker hood) or are we talking 383 Magnum, 727 auto with a 3.23 open rear? The drive train package is what makes this particular model “rare” or “very rare”.
1/8/08 – I saw “Silver Bullets” answer and it is extremely misleading as is a lot of information in “Wikipedia”. I’m not sure of the number of Challenger R/T’s built but it is way more than 2,172 or whatever he quoted. 1970 was the first year for the Challenger and production ended with the 1974 model year. R/T’s were available only in 1970 and 1971, I have the production figures somewhere but I can’t lay my hands on them due to remodeling at my home, they are packed in a box somewhere in the rec room.
Q: how much would it cost to put a whole new interior in a 1970 dodge challenger?
i need seats, carpet, etc. but not the dash or anything like that.
A: Well it could cost anything. It depends what type of interior. If it’s Alcantara leather a fortune. If it’s vinyl peanuts. You need to be more specific so you can be helped!!
