In 1970, if you hankered for a luxurious muscle car built to your specifications, Dodge had a solution, the Challenger. Today, if you want a 70s muscle car that is rare (or even unique) and one that you can restore or upgrade, a Challenger can fulfill your dreams.The Challenger has become a cultural icon and a symbol of the muscle-car era. A 1970 Challenger R/T 440 Magnum was featured in the somewhat surrealistic B-movie Vanishing Point. (Call me traditional, but naked biker chicks seem surreal to me.) In the series NCIS, Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) received a lovingly restored 1971 Challenger R/T Hemi from his father (played by Ralph Waite).
Collectors have taken note. A perfectly restored, numbers-matching Challenger R/T Hemi can sell for a quarter million dollars. Read more about this model.
