Hey all you Mopar Lovers! Check out this radical ride.
Ol' School Garage had this 1970 Dodge Challeger built from the ground up by our US-based partner, Rick's Hi-Desert Customs. We have named the car Plum Krazy in tribute to the popular 70's retro Mopar colour of the same name. The show-quality paint is finished in a House of Kolor candy purple. Continuing the retro 70's theme, the custom interior is finished in white leather with purple suede inserts.
No expense has been spared under the hood. Plum Krazy has a brand new high performance 440 big block with a March serpentine kit, new wiring harness and upgraded Mopar ignition system. The big block is connected to brand new shift-kitted 727 Torqueflite transmission which drives a strong posi rear end. In order to stop this beast we upgraded the front-end with an all new power disc brake conversion kit and completely rebuilt the rear brakes. The drive-train is finished off with a set of new Boyds rims complete with some rather impressive rubber in order to get all that power to the ground.
To keep this 'hot ride' cool in summer, we upgraded the old tired air-con with a new Vintage Air unit.
After this professional frame-off restoration, Plum Krazy is effectively a new car which has travelled test miles only. It is a true show car, ready to take on the show circuit.
Note: This car was purported to be a rare SE model, although we have not been able to verify this. The car certainly has the overhead console featured in SE models, but has a standard size rear window.
