This is 1970 Dodge Charger RT, Which we saw in local car show in Largo, Florida. Actually we are 100% sure that the car was a 1970 Dodge Charger RT model because of the distinctive, wrap around front bumper and the solid, non-divided grille. At first glance we saw nothing really extraordinary about this particular car, it did sport the optional, longitudinal striping, and the scallops on the hood were painted a satin black. “Just another old muscle car” we thought as we walked by, but after tracking down the owner, and spending a few minutes with him and his oddly colored Dodge Charger RT, we found our first impression was anything but correct.
Regardless of where Paul and his family were located, he remembers his Dad as always having a cool car of some sort. “Dad had everything from an old Plymouth station wagon, to a Lamborghini, and I was constantly around cars,” he said. Paul’s Duster was by no means what might be considered the typical American muscle car of that era. The car was a standard Duster with a 225 cid slant six motor and automatic transmission. This 1970 Dodge Charger RT was sold new in 1970 to the first owner, and was later traded in at Colony Dodge in 1973. The second owner purchased the car late in 1973.
Waiting on the 1970 Dodge Charger RT to come across the block, he had made up his mind that if he came away empty handed, there would be other auctions to attend. As the oddly colored Dodge Charger RT rolled across the block, there were several people, including Paul, that were actively bidding on the car. Paul was declared the new owner of lot number S 91.1 – a 1970 Dodge Charger RT. He was pleased with his newly acquired Charger, but was not totally aware of what he actually had purchased until returning home the next day. This particular 1970 Dodge Charger R/T was not just original; it proved to be very unique, due to how it was equipped.
