70 Challenger

1970 Dodge Challenger Convertible 383 / 727 Automatic.  The Challenger is in for basic maintenance and sound control insulation. This car has the 'SlapStick' shifter and it is a lot of fun. No frills here, Just strong 383 performance all through the RPM range.  383 HP / 727 automatic / 390 gears   This vehicle arrived for basic service and electrical work.  I removed the dashboard, installed dsynamat, and repaired all things electrical along the way.  The engine had a noisy valvetrain, but after some carb re-engineering and a few oil changes., the noise sub-sided. Up next was a gear change from 3:23 to 3:90 for a little more AND NOW for the 2023 upgrades! See below
