Rolling off the production line on the 30th of March 1970, this 1970 Dodge Charger 500 left the St Luis production plant originally as a Plumb crazy with black trim car. The car is well documented and has the original fender tag with option codes as well as the US title and original hand book. A large file of receipts are with the car including many back to the early 90s when the car was still in the US right up until present.  

The car as it sits today, while it still has the same original roots, is a much tougher representation of what it used to be. The iconic shape of a 68-70 Dodge charger is unmistakable with their hide away headlights and angular, muscular guards. The 1970 model solidified it’s place in pop culture as the same model used by Dominic Toretto in the original Fast and the Furious movie. This example was imported to Australia in 2005 by the president of the Charger Club of WA. When it arrived in Aus, the car was repainted to its Cherry Black colour that you see today. All of the glass has been replaced as have the door seals and rubbers. The car has been previously registered in Victoria and New South Wales and Queensland.

The car now runs a blueprinted and tough built 440ci Big Block V8 featuring flat top pistons, solid steel crank, big cam, Edelbrock high rise intake and a Holley 780 Carb. Spark is provided by an MSD 6AL ignition. A twin 3” exhaust gets the gasses out quickly and also provides a nice rumble to match the look. Power is transferred through a rebuilt Torqueflite 727 automatic with shift kit and 2500 stall. The cooling system has also been upgraded with a custom 5 core aluminium radiator with twin thermo fans, trans cooler and overflow bottle. The owner tells us the car has never overheated on him even in heavy traffic on hot days.  

The car sits nicely over a set of American racing 15” wheels with black centers and the look is finished with red vinyl striping and a black hood with hemi style scoop. Handling has been upgraded with heavy duty sway bars front and rear. Stopping the beast is a four-wheel power disc brake upgrade including 330mm drilled and slotted Hopper Stoppers. SSD brake bias system with dial adjust allows full control over braking adjustments.  

Inside the trim has all been redone in the original style black. A stereo system is hidden in the glove box to ensure the original dash isn’t cut up and a subtle pair of Autometer gauges on the underside of the dash help monitor water temp and oil pressure. 

These Charger’s are super popular today and are commanding strong prices in the market. Nicely built big block examples in desirable colour schemes will always be highly sort after amongst muscle car enthusiasts. Be sure to register and bid if you can see this one parked in your garage.
