Galen Govier saw this 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE at the Mopar Spring Fling and provided some very interesting details about its origin. This isn’t “just another Challenger.” Govier pointed out the “Q” present in the lower right of the fender tag, which in combination with “Lynch 101” stamped on the original warranty card, indicates this Plum Crazy Purple beauty was picked up directly at the plant it was made in, and owned by a company executive!
The color is unique and the options are plentiful, just as you’d expect from a V.I.P. vehicle. The owner states that he’s driven on short and long trips, and that no mechanical issues ever presented themselves. The hood has been repainted, but the rest of the paint is original, as well as all of the body panels. See the ad for a full list of original parts which include an original, matching numbers engine and the original title obtained thanks to California’s old laws regarding classic cars.
The seller also covers changes he made, which include upgrading to an electronic ignition, replacement of the carpet (though the original carpet is still included) and a replaced fuel system. You won’t be surprised either, as the seller tells us exactly what could use a little work in the car, including a detailed itemization of the fender tag. This collector has done his homework, and buyers wanting to be sure of what they’re getting need only peruse the ad for what they’re looking for. If a great price is part of the want-list, then the $5,000 price break on this Challenger should make it even more attractive. We recently wrote about how amazing this car is, and it’s incredible that it’s already been PRICE REDUCED from $45,000 to $40,000! Don’t wait much longer on this deal!
