1970 Dodge Challenger By Jim Martino


This is my little monster. A factory 383 a/c California car I bought last year. With numerous oil, coolant, power steering & trans leaks that made life miserable, I just went a little crazy. It now has a 500 cid Mopar crate engine, ATI 727 streetfighter trans with 3000 stall converter, and 3:91 posi 8 3/4 rear. The factory flat hood would not work with the engine that is quite a bit taller than the 383, so I put a replica T/A hood on it with the stock hinges. I needed to modify some brackets for the a/c compressor, but managed to get it right. Also the trans kickdown linkage won't work, so I put a cable kit on it. Only problem with this car is that it's downright scary to drive. Traction is impossible!! Any attempt to mash the throttle up to 50 mph results in tire smoke and a white knuckle ride. All that power and a/c too! Paint job is next.
