Description for Dodge Challenger 1970

This is not only one of the very rare (1 of 127) 1970 Challenger R/T convertibles built with a 440 Magnum & 727 auto. . it has the very desirable "Q" on the original fender tag which makes it a very rare "PUBLIC RELATIONS CAR" & highly collectible . There were only about 5 of these built! Public relations cars were very limited production & were built to showcase a new model. Most came in very loud colors & nearly every option available. Chrysler used them for various forms of promotion like. major auto shows. displays in an high-traffic area. T. V. commercials. T. V. shows. posters. given to v. i. p. 's. magazine road tests etc. After they were used by Chrysler. they were usually sold through a "Chrysler-dealer-only sale". Galen Govier has done a full inspection to verify this cars authenticity (full report is included with the car). It does have it's original engine. original fender tags. original vin tag. original body numbers. original door vin decal & retains all its correct options. This "rotisserie" restoration was just completed & the car has less than 20 miles since done. No options were deleted or added- it was restored to it's original P. R. trim. 440 Magnum. 727 torqueflite auto. . 3. 55 sure-grip rear end. FE5 red paint. white conv. top. white side stripe. hood pins. dual painted ext. mirrors. luggage rack. chrome exh. tips. SE ext. trim. 14" road wheels. white letter poly glass tires. air conditioning. pwr. top. pwr. steering. pwr. disc brakes. pwr. windows. cruise control. rim-blow steering wheel. AM/FM. rally gauges w/tach. woodgrain console & bucket seats. 6-way drivers seat. deluxe seat belts. delayed headlights. light package & I'm probably forgetting something. Everything works except the air has not been charged yet. I located the gentleman that owned this car for about 5 years in the late 70's & as it turns out. he lives about 50 miles from me. He (Ted) came by for a visit after I contacted him & was good enough to bring an 8 x 10 color copy of a photo of this car in the 1976 Omaha autorama car show to add to the folder! I also have an original carbon copy of a letter he wrote to Chrysler customer service on March 5th 1977 asking about the car's rarity & collectability and. I also have a copy of the letter they wrote him 3 weeks later!! It basically states they can't comment on the value etc. & gives basic info on challenger convertables. He knew this was a very special & rare car even when it was only 7 years old!! Ted sold it in about 1980 to a person in Arizona where it sat in a garage until about 7-8 years ago. then to Kansas where the restoration was started a couple years ago. The pictures don't do it justice- it is VERY nice!! I'm able to provide personal. prompt. enclosed delivery and/or willing to arrange transport. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks- Paul 402-202-2263. I may take a partial trade (realistic trades). i. e. other muscle cars. hemi parts. freshwater bass/fish-ski boat?. 1985 & older motorcycles?? Thanks again
