This 1970 Dodge Challenger backs the Roadster that won the 2009 Trendsetter Award. A car featured in a magazine featured in Popular Hot Rodding, they called it “the Coolest ’70 Challenger of all time” after being named the Top 5 Racer in the 2010 Street Machine Competition.
It’s a complete one-off construction with extensive body modifications to transform it into a modern, sleek, performance machine. The fenders were split into the chassis, with custom lower wings and rear lower skirts with a one-off central exhaust.
BMW Halo headlights with HID projectors and a custom grille add a modern look. The custom hood with air intake feeds 528cid aluminum HEMI and is backed by a 5-speed Tremec TKO manual transmission.
Ride quality and handling performance come from the front custom K-tube member and rack-and-pinion steering suspension. Custom independent rear suspension with Wilwood internal disc brakes and a one-off Budnik wheel wrapped in Pirelli rubber. Custom 19″ x 9″ wheels and 22″ x 12″ rear wheels are wrapped and wrapped with Pirelli tires.
The custom interior features black textured French leather with Alcantara gray inserts. A custom center console houses the perforated transmission and engine start button, as well as power window controls. The dashboard has a custom perimeter with computerized gauges from Autometer.
The leather interior is complemented by Alpine stereo, Rockford Fosgate and Vintage air conditioning and heating. Custom PPG is mixed to give this Challenger a unique presence with hand-painted HEMI air-coated graphics and a matte fiberglass hood with cool-air scoop, cut-out door handles and drip bars that add to the detail.
