500SE R/T Tribute
When it comes to old Mopars, the fan favorite always seems to be the 1968-1970 Chargers! While many regard the 1969 as the top-tier model year, there wasn't a bad-looking second generation Charger ever produced as far as we are concerned. 1970 brought everything to the table, with a slightly updated new look that retained all of the classic styling cues.
This Top Banana Yellow 1970 Charger is a beautiful specimen in an iconic Mopar “High Impact” paint color. Nothing says 1970s more than that! While it is currently an R/T clone, this car actually started life as a Charger 500SE, which may be even tougher to find than an actual R/T these days. It has a high quality paint job that has been well-maintained and kept out of the rain since completed. It shows nicely! The vinyl top is also in excellent condition. The Top Banana and white vinyl top combination coupled with a killer stance makes for an outstanding cosmetic combination. 15 inch Ralleye wheels wrapped in fat tires ensure the power gets to the road, while providing that classic Mopar muscle car appearance.
The interior is finished in a luxurious medium brown and white combination. The vinyl is supple and comfortable, proving that this car has been cared for and kept indoors since it was restored. A white headliner helps give the interior a classic look, brighter than the black interior so many of these Chargers seem to have these days. All soft materials including the carpet are in great condition, showing almost no signs of use. The simulated woodgrain is in good condition throughout, including the steering wheel though the wheel itself shows some signs of use. The armrests have been recovered in vinyl to match the seats, giving them a nice padded feel for comfort when driving.
Under the hood is where this beauty really shines! A performance Chrysler 440 V8 hooked up to the bulletproof A727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission makes for one serious drivetrain combination! The 440 has plenty of power, and moves this big muscle car with ease. With just under 8,000 miles on the rebuilt engine, it has plenty more to go. Want to go fast? Give the command, and the 440 delivers. The 727 ensures smooth shifting and adequate strength to hold up to the powerful 440 engine. The power meets the road by way of a SureGrip 8.25" Mopar rear end. This car is one serious street machine!
This Charger is a unique specimen with lots of goodies. If you're chasing that classic Mopar look, or have to have one of the most desirable B-bodies of all time, this 1970 Charger may just fit the bill. Call today!
