We get some incredibly nice cars here at Carroll Street. Of those, some have even attained the Trifecta. Our informal designation means it is: 1) a very desirable model/specification car, 2) a pristine original or the recipient of a high-end restoration, and 3) a car which boasts impressive documentation (such as an award from a national judged show and/or inclusion in a notable magazine or web site). On offer here is one of those rare, “Trifecta” cars. For many muscle car enthusiasts, one of the holy grail picks is a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE, especially if it comes packing a 440 V8 and a 4-speed with the factory “Pistol Grip” gear shifter. A build sheet, a copy of original window sticker and verification by Galen Govier confirm the impressive factory-issued specs of this R/T SE. Option highlights include that 440 “Magnum” V8 and 4-speed gearbox, the “Track Pak” (3.54 Sure Grip Dana rear end), power front disc brakes, power steering, “High Impact” paint (in this case “Top Banana”), black hood performance paint, 14-inch Rallye wheels, center console, rim-blow steering wheel and AM radio. A life-long Texas car boasting a pristine body with nearly all its original and rust-free panels still present, the Challenger was refinished in the correct Top Banana yellow accented with its black vinyl roof (with the SE-specific smaller rear window), black hood and black “Bumblebee” tail stripe. Look up close and you’ll understand how this beautiful Challenger earned First Place at the Mopar Nationals back in 2004. Period correct Goodyear polyglas white letter tires complete the “just rolled out of the factory” impression. Underneath it’s just as nice as the top. Indeed, this is what we call a “lasagna car” because we would gladly eat lasagna off this Challenger’s super clean underside. Inside, rather than the SE’s standard leather seating, this SE was ordered with the cloth/vinyl upholstery (which came with a $48.25 credit). And this also being an R/T means that full instrumentation is included. The one minor flaw we noted is a very small tear on the driver’s seat bottom cushion. It looks to have been caused accidentally, not by wear and tear given the pristine condition of the rest of the interior. Unfasten the factory hood pins, raise the hood and you’ll see an engine compartment that is as clean and correct as the rest of this Challenger. It’s a numbers-matching powertrain and even the factory paint daubs are in place, contributing to the attention to detail received during the older restoration that still looks fresh thanks to the car’s life as a reference-grade show car. This beautiful bruiser runs as good as it looks, too. Step into it as you run through the gears and as you’re pushed back in the seat you’re treated to the rocking soundtrack that only a big-inch, high-performance V8 can deliver. The icing on the cake is the massive collection of paperwork (contained in two large binders) that authenticates the car. In addition to the aforementioned documents, there are copies of the build sheet, a list of the five previous owners and actual magazines that feature this captivating Challenger R/T SE.
