Dodge : Challenger Base Convertible 2-Door for sale

Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.25) based on 276 votes
Hi here is my 1970 Challenger Convertible `N` Code 383 Big Block NUMBERS MATCHING ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION. Car comes loaded with options Power Top. Power Locks. Power Windows. Power Steering. Heavy Duty Suspension. Big 11-Inch Drum Brakes. Slap Stick. Air. 8-Track. Rallye gauges. Special handling Car. (All documented on the original build sheet). Basically the car is a base challenger optioned out like an RT. Factory FE5 Rallye Red with Red Interior and White Top. Car was purchased in Dallas Texas by the believed to be second owner and was sold by the second owner to the third owner with 51K miles in 1998. The third owner had it in Florida for a year then moved back to Tucson where it remained till 2010 when I purchased it with 71K miles. The engine is all stock and has never been rebuilt. The second owner repainted the car and restored the interior with a Legendary Interior as well as a new NOS top in the 1997 and 1998 time frame. The body retains ALL of its original body panels and they are in excellent original shape. The dash was redone by Just Dashes as well as the original interior rear panels.  
The NOS top that was added in 1998 is in excellent condition as is the rear window glass. It has been either down or covered 99. 9% of the time. It operates as it should and goes up and down with ease.  There is a nice red top cover that you see in the pics. The power windows also operate as they should.
Since I have had the car I have been collecting NOS parts for the possibility of a concours resto someday. NOS parts I have are: Complete Grille Assembly. Marker Lenses. Left Tail Light Assembly. Back up Lense. Hood molding. Trunklid and quarter panel molding as well as various other parts totaling more than $7. 00. 00. I will let these go with the Challenger for extra cost to the buyer if they are interested. The build sheet also has an "S" before the order number and "Code Y76" which according to internet sites and people I have spoken to the Challenger was an Ordered Car sold to a "Chrysler Preferred Customer" Gelco Leasing out of Phoenix Arizona which later became GE Capital. It is unlikely that a loaded car like mine was leased out and may have been for a Gelco executive and probably why it is so well preserved over all these years.

Overall the paint is about a 7 to 7. 5 out of 10. Still has a nice shine. the odd chip on the door edges and trunk lid but no dents. (I am a very particular guy). To some they may think it is an 8 to 8. 5. The car holds its own at cruise nights and car shows. IAs a very particular guy I would rate it as a really really nice driver (the cleanest there is). Some would rate it higher. The interior is in very nice condition and the original glass is too with only minor windshield scuff from the wiper arm which all these Challengers have. The original grille is very nice with one minor ding (hardly noticeable). I had the bumpers rechromed in 2012 and added NOS bumper guards because I like the look. The pics are current. I have added Wheel Vintiques 15 inch Rallyes with NOS Sombrero Center Caps and rings. New Good Year tires and a white body line non-RT stripe (The Challenger came from the factory with a white stripe but I believe they were more narrow than the R/T type stripe). The chrome valve covers were on the car when I bought it. I have the original blue steel painted valve covers for it.

Overall the body is rustfree. dry and solid with all of its original panels. Still has the factory marking on the rear end and paint dab on the cowl near the master cylinder. There are a couple minor spots on the lower rocker just in front of the rear tires probably where water sits as convertibles pipe the water to this area to drain. You really have to get down on your hands and knees to even see this it is so minor. The car had a very small bump in the drivers rear tail light area at some point in its life and is not at all noticeable outside the car in fact you would never know without looking inside the trunk past the tail light to even know its there it is so minor.
I just put fresh oil in the Challenger and redid the rear brakes.
My Challenger is a really nice original big block numbers matching Convertible that will be a solid investment and a car you can cruise and take to the shows to enjoy. It is ready to go to a new home. For those interested I have the buildsheet scanned and can email it to you. Check out the production numbers it is rarer than 1970 R/T 440 and Hemi cars. Selling only because I wish to buy a 2016 Hellcat.

The car is located in Bolton. Ontario. Canada. I can assist with shipping etc as I have done it a few times cross border. I would recommend coming to see the Challenger in person to truly appreciate how solid and original it is. It will hold its own at any cruise night and get you thumbs up wherever you go. They don't come this clean for a 45 years old cat all that often so bid accordingly. I have some extra pics I can send if you would like to see more. My reserve is close to the buy it now as this car is worth every bit of my Buy It Now price.  Call or text me at 647-828-1374 is best.
