  DESCRIPTION:  
  When Dodge finally got a legitimate pony car to race in the Sports Car Club of America's Trans American Sedan Championship in 1970, it built a muscle car version for the street that was even wilder than the competition model. We're talking about the 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A which was equipped with Mopar's 340-cid V-8 with a trio of two-barrel Holleys atop an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold. Despite the "Six Pak" the T/A's mill carried the same 290 hp rating as regular four-barrel 340s, though true output was near 350 hp. Feeding it air was a suitcase-sized scoop molded into the pinned-down matte-black fiberglass hood. Low-restriction dual exhausts ran to the stock muffler location under the trunk then reversed direction to exit in chrome-tipped "megaphone" outlets in front of the rear wheels. Front disc brakes were standard and the special Rallye suspension used heavy-duty everything and increased the camber of the rear springs. The T/A was among the first production cars with different sized tires front and rear: E60x15s up front, G60x15s in back. The modified camber elevated the tail enough to clear the rear rubber and the exhaust outlets, giving the T/A a real street-punk's stance. Thick side stripes, bold ID graphics, and a black ducktail spoiler joined the visual assault. With its intensified 340 and meaty rear tires it was able to run the quarter in the mid 14s. This particular example is equipped with the Hurst shifted four speed and a 3.90:1 rear end. Not only that but it has 59,985 original miles and is completely numbers matching. It was frame off restored a little bit over 20 years ago but still shows incredibly. If you have been looking at real T/As then you know that real ones in this condition are bring six plus figures. We are serious about selling this one and have priced it accordingly! For more pictures and a video of the engine visit HotRodsChoppers.com
