Lot #1274 - This 1970 Challenger backs up the Roadster Shop winning the 2009 Trendsetter of the Year award. Called the "Coolest '70 Challenger ever" by Popular Hot Rodding magazine after it was selected as a top five finalist for the 2010 Street Machine of the Year. This a complete one-off build with extensive body modifications to transform it into a modern, smoothed, performance machine. The bumpers have been sectioned and flushed to the body with custom lower spoilers and rear lower valance with one-off center exhaust. BMW halo headlights and custom grille add to the clean, modern look. The custom hood with air intake feeds the 528ci aluminum HEMI that is backed by a 5-speed manual transmission. Ride quality and performance handling comes from the custom tubular front K-member and suspension with rack & pinion steering. It also has a custom independent rear suspension with inboard disc brakes and one-off Budnik wheels wrapped in Pirelli rubber. The custom interior features French seamed black leather with grey Alcantara inserts. The custom center console houses the drilled shifter and engine start button as well as the controls for the power windows. The dash has a custom gauge surround with computerized Auto Meter gauges. The interior is completed with an Alpine and Rockford Fosgate stereo and Vintage Air and heat. The custom PPG paint was mixed to give this Challenger a unique presence with hand airbrushed 528 HEMI graphics and matte alloy hood to add to the detail. This one-off custom is a real street machine pushing out over 700hp.
