The 1970 model year heralded a number of restylings from Detroit, but one of the most anticipated was Dodge’s new entry into the ponycar market, the Challenger. Created to compete with Cougar and Firebird, the Challenger’s E-body platform was capable of handling any engine in the Dodge passenger car line. The R/T designation would be for performance models, and it was only in 1970 that a convertible Challenger was ever offered. That year, 1,070 people bought new R/T convertibles; only nine of them selected the Hemi engine. Four of those chose the Hemi/automatic combination. This is one of that very exclusive group.
