Description for Dodge Challenger 1971

1970 DODGE CHALLENGER R/T NOSTALGIA SUPER STOCK DRAG RACE CAR STREET OR STRIP After retiring in 2002 from the telephone industry the previous owner (The Original Bandito Dodge Racing Inc. ) started looking for another Mopar to fill in spare time when not working at Bandimere Speedway as an SFI certified tech official. In the summer of 2004 a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T - F/SA - G/SA class car was found in MN. it had been sitting for several years. stored in a heated garage. A deal was made and the car was moved to Colorado checked over and tested at Bandimere Speedway to see how competitive it would be in the thin air of Denver. This was testing only before going into a rebuild / upgrade stage and total restoration back to its hay days of the 1970's. Boy did they take on a mess. once they started you can only keep going to reach the end result. BAD MOVE . Car was tested in Denver CO as a G/SA - 2004. @ 5. 60' with ET's in the 12. 70's @ 109. 98 in 2004 ----------------------------------- Born a 1970 Dodge Challenger RT "Plum Crazy Purple" car equipped with a 340/275 hp motor. 904 transmission & a 8-3/4" rear end. Life as a cruiser was short lived in the early 70's. soon it was seeing drag racing duties at local strips in the area of MN. As time passed the car has gone through difference stages of being updated to meet the demands of service as a race car. This information should have been a WARNING SIGN that the parts could need replacement after years of hard service. As you view these notes you will find that what you look at and what you really have just purchased may not be the same. In this case he found that anything from major parts to the body parts were not as good a condition as thought. Specs 2005 Being from MN it had some rust damage requiring replacement of the trunk floor pan and a few very small holes under the drivers feet area. One dent was found in the floor pan where the driveshaft had got loose before having the required driveshaft loop added. These areas have been corrected once years of dirt. rubber and under coating was removed with media blasting. The front 'K' members were bead blasted and painted with black POR-15 paint. new bushings. bearings. seals and drum brakes replaced with Wildwood discs brakes (better stopping and dropped 52 lbs. off the front end Taking the car from its earlier technology to today's standards included suspension changes and the installation of a Cal Trac system with mono springs moved inward to make room for larger width tires. This meant mini tubs had to be built in as well as a firewall between the passenger compartment and trunk for the battery and fuel cell. Car testing in Denver CO at Bandimere's Speedway - now in NHRA Pro ET. with corrected altitude of 8. 50' - ET's in the low 11. 80's @ 116. 00's for 2005. 2006 With the upgrading to today's tech knowledge completed the vehicle is ready for fine tuning of motor. suspension and driver duties to make car perform as it has in past years. This has turned out to be more expensive than originally planned on when purchased. Be aware of what you are buying when looking at a used vehicle. In the case of this race car the history of the vehicle's activity for the number of years run in competition should have been a warning of parts being stressed or just worn out. 2007 Car testing in Denver CO at Bandimere's Speedway - now in NHRA PRO ET. with corrected altitude of 8. 50' - ET's in the high 11. 60's @ 116. 00's for 2006. When purchased the car's weight was 3425 lb. w/o driver. after rebuild & upgrades it sits at 3125 lb. w/o driver.
