This is a superbly presented, well-engineered piece of Americana
Offered here from the golden age of American muscle cars is the infamous Dodge Challenger R/ T 440 Six Pack. For its introductory year in 1970, the Challenger was available in two series, Challenger and Challenger R/ T and three models, two-door hardtop, Special-edition two-door hardtop, or convertible. The performance model was the Challenger R/ T (Road/ Track) with a 383ci (6. 3l) Magnum V8 rated at 335bhp, however other engines were optional including the legendary 390bhp, 440ci (7. 2L) Six-Pack. The RT was fitted as standard with a ‘Rallye’ instrument cluster that included a 150mph speedometer, an 8, 000rpm tachometer and an oil pressure gauge. A ‘shaker’ hood-scoop was an option but was not available after 1971.

In popular culture, the Challenger will always be associated with ‘Vanishing Point’, the 1971 American action film that starred Barry Newman as Kowalski, a disaffected ex-cop and part-time racing driver attempting to deliver a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/ T440 Magnum to California. It’s now a cult movie but the Challenger is undoubtedly the star of the show.

As a nod to Kowalski’s car, this example has been finished in gleaming Alpine White with a black vinyl roof and black graphics. Subject to a full ‘rotisserie’ restoration in the US and then perfected by one of the UK’s top restoration workshops, it can only be described as undoubtedly one of the best Challengers available today. In the history file is the original Chrysler Corporation build sheet and further notes from the US records confirm that, pre-restoration, it was a very well preserved example requiring only a new boot lid to ensure that the shut lines were perfect. As is often the case with a rotisserie rebuild, the underside is show-quality, remarkable. Naturally, the interior was fully restored to a factory-fresh standard and the original ‘Rallye’ instrument cluster was rebuilt.

This RT originally came from the factory with a 335bhp engine but during the restoration it was converted to a 440 ‘Six Pack’. The original specification and build date of September 1970 lists high vinyl bucket seats, black vinyl roof and automatic transmission but it was more appropriate to mate the ‘new’ 7. 2-litre with a four-speed manual gearbox complete with the iconic ‘pistol grip’ gear change.

The car was shipped to the UK in late 2018 and registered a year later when it had been detailed to the impressive level our vendor required. The odometer currently indicates 50, 273 miles and the car is accompanied by some US history, its Operators Manual and a fresh MOT valid until February 2022.

Undoubtedly one of the best available anywhere and a must for any cult muscle Mopar collection.
