Found: Rare, Highly Optioned 1970 Challenger R/T SE!

HOT ROD Power Tour always allows a unique opportunity for me, such as traveling to places I have never been, meeting people I have never met, and following up on car leads in places beyond my normal reach.

For seven days on Power Tour, I traveled with a guy named Chris in his topless, old, hemi-powered truck—a real hot rod. We were having a blast and Chris invited me to come check out his property, which was near the last venue.

Chris’s garage was a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE—a crazy-loaded model. This thing had two fender tags full of options, such as a 383 big-block, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, six-way adjustable seats, and it originally had Plum Crazy Purple paint (though the car was repainted at some point). This thing had just about everything you could get on a Challenger.

The story goes, Chris was looking for a 1968 Charger when his friend found this car and told him to go look at it. He went and wasn’t that impressed with it at first, but it had power windows, so he brought it home.
