“1970’s all-new performance pony car. It borrowed from no one. Completely new from the wide stance up. And the scoop drops the hint. The pony has a mean streak. Like a 426 Hemi V-8. Light it up and you’ll get a quaking trace of dual four-barrel thunder.” — Dodge (1970)
HEY, DOES THAT THING HAVE A HEMI?
The 2017 Challenger Dream Giveaway grand-prize 1970 Hemi Challenger R/T is a factory-born muscle car, featuring MOPAR’s legendary 425 hp, 426ci Hemi big-block engine topped with a high-flowing pair of old school, four-barrel carburetors. Dodge called it the “Hauling Hemi” and it is the most legendary engine of the entire muscle-car era.
… AND IS THAT “BIG DADDY” DON GARLITS DRIVING THAT HEMI?
In 1969 at the height of Dodge Scat Pack’s phenomenal success, Dodge put in an official request to legendary dragster racer “Big Daddy” Don Garlits to test the all-new 1970 Dodge Challenger. Here’s what he had to say: “Dodge has gone and done the real thing … the Challenger R/T. Fantastic performance. If I ever leave dragsters, you can be sure I’ll run a super stock Challenger R/T.”
So when Dream Giveaway asked “Big Daddy” Don Garlits if he’d buckle up behind the wheel of this fully restored, grand-prize 1970 Hemi Challenger and launch it like an Apollo rocket just like the good old days, the world’s undisputed king of drag racing said, “Yes!”
And to immortalize his track testing of this fully restored 1970 Hemi Challenger R/T, “Big Daddy” Don Garlits boldly autographed the dash for the lucky winner.
