1970 Dodge Challenger RT

For obvious reasons, the 440 and the 426 Hemi engines were considered the most desirable, and nowadays command sizeable premiums over the smaller engines.

Challengers could either be hardtop coupes or convertibles through 1971 only. The performance model was the R/T (Road/Track), available in both body styles; both standard and R/T hardtops could be ordered as the more luxurious SE specification, which included leather seats, a vinyl roof and a smaller 'formal' rear window. Other options, as well as engines and manual transmission, included steeper rear axle ratios, a limited-slip differential, and a shaker scoop.

A 1970-only model was the Dodge Challenger T/A (Trans Am) racing homologation car, which used a specially tuned Six-Pack version of the 340 cubic inch (5.6 L) powerplant, topped with a giant hood scoop in a fiberglass lift-off hood. 'Megaphone' exhaust outlets were fitted in front of the rear wheels. A 'Rallye' suspension package was available, and different-sized wheels were fitted front and back, with very fat rubber on the rear.
