For starters, the car backs a spotless restoration with an original Hemi/3-speed drivetrain. Those top-notch mechanicals propel 1 of only 59 1970 Challengers, and 1 of only 4 Canadian-spec cars, fitted with both R/T and SE equipment groups. As expected, that pairing creates a rich list of options that culminates with things like power windows, a rare 8-track player and a 6-way driver's seat. Naturally, that provenance has been confirmed through an original Broadcast Sheet and two official Galen's Tag Service inspections. And in 2014, all that prestige was tempered with Concours Gold honors from the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. Striving to own one of the coolest blue chip MoPars on the planet? Here's the chance to achieve your goal! HISTORY/APPEARANCE According to the original Broadcast Sheet that's included with our sale, this Challenger was initially purchased as part of a fleet order in a 'not recommended' combination of black vinyl and white side stripes. While it's interesting that a Hemi car, equipped with rare options like deluxe seatbelts, power windows, a rear window defogger, power steering, power brakes and an 8-track player, would be included in a fleet order, we're guessing the company that submitted the order probably spec-d this beast for an executive. At any rate, by 1975, the coupe was sitting on a used car lot with 96,500 miles on its clock. That's when Ron Brewer of Ontario, Canada purchased the car as a fun daily driver. After about 2 years of miles and smiles, the Hemi began burning a bit of oil. So, Ron decided to set it aside and start planning a full restoration, which is where our vintage photos pick up. Ron had removed the front of the car, stored its engine indoors and purchased many fresh parts when, unfortunately, he was involved in a pretty serious motorcycle accident. The Challenger remained in disarray until December of 2013, when the present owner purchased the entire project and began a professional, ground-up restoration that culminated in a polished, world class appearance. That reboot, featured in 'under construction' articles in the March, 2014 and January, 2015 issues of MoPar Collector's Guide, created a well-aligned profile that's finished in correct Bright Blue Metallic 2-stage, correct R/T sport stripes and a correct vinyl top. At the front of that fuselage, a 1970-exclusive grille hangs a brash Challenger R/T badge between pristine headlights, an SE-spec valance, amber parking lamps and an SE-spec bumper. Behind that grille, an R/T-spec hood, complete with correct 426 HEMI emblems and bold D O D G E lettering, founds clean glass, complete with a correct SE backlight and colorful fratzog emblems, beneath SE-spec belt moldings. At the sides of that hood, sculpted doors hang flush-fit handles and an optional sport mirror between fresh rocker trim, ornate Challenger scripts, fresh marker lamps and a stylish 'pit stop' fuel filler. And at the back of the car, a stainless-trimmed SE valence centers body-width taillights and more D O D G E lettering between a second Challenger R/T badge, a second S
