1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T - $302k

Original broadcast sheet. Nut and bolt rotisserie restoration. The only documented Plum Crazy Hemi 4-speed Challenger R/T with Shaker hood and Super Track Pack. 1 of 5 Hemi Shaker Challenger R/T 4-speed Hardtops known to exist. 426/425 HP Hemi V-8 engine. 4-speed transmission. Hurst Pistol Grip shifter. Plum Crazy with Black vinyl top and interior.
The Challenger could be had with 11 possible engines from a 6-cylinder on up, to versions like this, completely optioned for performance. Over the following four years, the car’s potential options list grew much smaller, leaving big-block examples from 1970 and 1971 as the apex collector models.
This example is exclusive as one of only five Hemi “Shaker” Challenger R/T 4-speed hardtops known to exist. The option was “delisted” in late 1969, and very few cars came with it again until the end of the production run. This Hemi features dual 4-barrel carbs, hydraulic cam and electronic ignition. The engine choice also brought specific suspension and frame components.
This top tier example made $302k at Kissimmee against an estimate of $285k to $350k
