Description
Lot #1262.1 - This car is 1 of 112 1970 HEMI Charger R/T's built. It is one of 56 built with the 727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission. The car also was equipped with the A32 super performance axle package with a DANA 60 rear end, heavy duty suspension, power steering, power font disc brakes, radio, heater, wood grain dash, leather bucket seat interior, vinyl roof and increased cooling with a factory installed transmission cooler. The color is FF4 light green metallic with a VF1 green vinyl roof. The car was completely stripped of all paint and completely refinished including the underside in 1990 by Rick's Auto Body in Conway, Pennsylvania. The Charger was reassembled by Rick's Auto Body with a new vinyl roof. The front and rear bumpers were chrome plated. The break lines, fuel lines and brake hoses were all replaced. The gas tank and sending unit were replaced. The front suspension was completely rebuilt with all new TRW parts and bushings. New stock shock absorbers were installed in the front and rear. The brake system had a new Mopar master cylinder installed. The front and rear brakes were completely rebuilt with new parts. A new Mopar NOS power steering box and pump were installed. The engine and transmission were removed for rebuilding in January 1997 by Edward Eckenrode of Pittsburgh, PA. The original numbers matching HEMI engine was completely rebuilt with Ross custom-made .030 oversize 11 to 1 pistons. The crank was turned to .020 undersized and the assembly rebalanced. A new Mopar stock street HEMI hydraulic lifter cam was installed. A new high volume oil pump, stock oil pan windage tray and pickup were installed. A brand new set of 1970 original Carter carburetors were installed. The complete stock exhaust system was installed including the manifold heat tubes. The battery is a new Mopar reproduction installed in 2006. The transmission (1969 model) was completely rebuilt to factory specifications with an original HEMI torque converter installed. An electric fuel pump and multi-spark ignition was added to improve start-ability as this car was driven very little. It was kept on a hoist in a heated garage. The car has won numerous First Places at local Mopar and other car shows during the 1990's. It has been storage since 1999 and on display since August 2006.
