This is a factory original 1970 Dodge Challenger RT 440 Magnum car…but what makes it really unique is the color combination!
The car is a factory FM3 Panther Pink car with Hot Magenta stripe and blacked out hood. Yes, it was originally ordered that way and we have the original build sheet! There were only 2 Pink/Pink 440 4-barrel cars produced from Chrysler. So it is a one of two built car. It has been off the road since the late 70’s and has only accumulated 44k original miles. Unfortunately it was side swiped on the passenger side (fixed now) and then left for dead in the original owners yard. The motor and trans were pulled and the car was sold to the 2nd owner in Michigan. Restoration was started in the 80’s, but only a small amount was completed. Mostly it sat around in the garage with other pink cars.
Mopar Collectors guide did an article on this car back in the 90’s, but still, nothing more was done. We purchased the car in the early 2000’s and began finding parts and working on the restoration. Because we took our time, the car has tons of original parts. The interior is mostly original including seat covers, door panels and the dash pad. The carpet and headliner are new.
The motor has the correct dates F440-HP along with the transmission. Most of the parts we used are OEM or NOS. The rear wing was added by the 2nd owner and we left it in place. The car is on the last leg of restoration and is getting close to being finished and it will be for sale when completed.
Contact us if you are interested in the completed car. One of the rarest challengers on the planet, and documented.
22 Oct 2019 – Update! Its a big day for the pink Challenger. We install the motor and front end all as one unit, just like at the factory.
