1970 Dodge Hemi Charger R/T Heads to Mecum Auction Block
SOURCE: Mecum Auctions
In case you weren’t old enough to drive in the early ‘70s, or if you were, but didn’t have the cash for a Dodge Charger, this October 10-12 you’ll have a chance at reliving the dream. Coming to the Chicago, Illinois, auction in October is a pristine 1970 Dodge Hemi Charger R/T that’s practically new.
During this auction, a 1970 Dodge Hemi Charger R/T will cross the block at the Mecum auction in Chicago. The 426ci Hemi Charger is a favorite of the era and has stood the test of time over the past 40 years. This car is likely to sell for big bucks, but it’ll certainly be worth every penny.
So what makes this 1970 Hemi Charger R/T so special? This one is one of 112 U.S.-spec R/Ts ordered with the Hemi in 1970. What’s more, only 56 of those were built with the 4-speed. Aside from the engine call-outs on the hood and repaint of FK5 Burnt Orange, this Charger R/T is largely original and numbers matching. What ices the cake is the A34 Super Track Pak.
The A34 Super Track Pak was an optional package, which included a 26-inch radiator, Hurst Pistol Grip-shifted 4-speed, 4.10-geared Dana 60 Sure Grip rearend, and power front disc brakes. The exterior features a black, vinyl roof, along with a white on black interior with bucket seats and console. Read the full list of car and auction details below.
