A 1970 Challenger convertible is a very rare sight. Indeed, Dodge made only 2,921 Challenger drop tops that year, and of those, only 692 were powered by the 383 V8. Furthermore, we’d guess that just a small percentage of those were the luxury-themed SE trim level. To find an original, very well-equipped and very well-kept example with low mileage would be a rare treat. Here we have such a treat in the form of a 1970 Dodge Challenger SE convertible that boasts all the aforementioned desirable traits as well as just one owner from 1987 to 2021. Finished in a high-quality respray in the original shade of Hemi Orange, this beautiful example features all original, rock-solid and arrow-straight body panels. A black power convertible top, factory luggage rack and factory Rallye wheels fitted with BF Goodrich T/As make for plenty of car show eye candy. Note that back in the 1980s R/T badges, as well as several 1971-style upgrades (such as the simulated rear quarter scoops and chrome grille surround) were added. Inside, being an SE this Challenger features leather upholstery that, along with the dash, door panels and carpet is in amazing condition for being five decades old. Air conditioning, a six-way adjustable driver's seat and the Rally dash with full instrumentation and simulated wood accents are additional highlights of the interior. Under the hood is the optional 383 Magnum 4-barrel V8, and that numbers-matching powerhouse runs through a factory 727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission with the “Slapstick” gear selector that allows manual gear changes should the mood strike. Power steering and power brakes round out the easy-driving personality of this Challenger SE which of course can also run like a scalded cat when one leans on that 383.
