`70 Dodge Charger 500: Original, Untouched “Muscle Cars” Are Still Out There Waiting to be Found!

September 16th, 2019

On behalf of the heirs to an estate, I recently was engaged to appraise this 1970 Dodge Charger 500, which was special ordered by the deceased original owner who added a number of desirable options, including factory air conditioning. Fortunately, he’d kept the original documentation and paperwork, including the Monroney window sticker and the dealer order sheet. Aside from installing a 440 cubic inch V8 in place of the original 383 cubic inch V8 and some aftermarket wheels in place of the original chrome-plated Magnum 500 “road wheels,” all of which he’d saved and stored, the rest of this vehicle was untouched. While needing extensive cleaning and detailing, the vehicle still wore its factory-applied paint and vinyl top on a rust-free body, and a well preserved bucket seat interior. What a great find!
