1970 Dodge Charger 500 Description:

Up for sale is a 1970 Dodge Charger 500
This is a great project or Ratty Driver which is was what we built it for. This car has been upgraded to OEM Power front disc brakes, and a built period date 383 Magnum and has less than 1000 miles on the engine. This is a comfortable driver as it is and the only reason we are selling this is because we lucked into an almost rust free turn key 1968 Super Bee. I am wanting this to go to a good home, me and my father have built this to restore for us but switching to the new toy.
This car is mechanically and electrically done, just needs body, but can be driven as it is.

What it needs: It has rust, but still solid, no twists or serious structural weak points. It needs quarters, passenger side rear frame rail (drivers rear has a few holes but can be salvaged), trunk floor, drivers side floor pan under the gas pedal, and all places cosmetic on the rear as shown in the pictures. As anyone knows chargers rust but this one is alot better than most I've seen. Will need trim pieces, interior finished, body and you'll have a show stopper. Windshield wiper motor does not work, and a oil drip on the front of the oil pan due to the windage tray.
The car's story: the car was originally from Prince George's County, Va and used to tow boats to the Chesapeake bay, basically used as a tug, moved to the sheandoah valley and terrorized the backroads near New Market Virginia in the Dukes of Hazzard era, then sat in the woods as a parts car and dormant project for 25 years until I found it in July 2015.
I have pictures from the ENTIRE build and I can answer any question about it.
I wanted to leave the body as I found it but build a ratty driver and it turns alot heads in a positive way or in a negative way in those HOA neighborhoods. As you have probably seen this car on Facebook as it has gone viral several times over, it's known and going to keep being well known. This will come with alot of extra parts including: trim parts, ac ducts, heater parts, etc. Glove box door is signed by Richard Petty and picture to prove it.
