The Dodge Challenger T/A is one of the most sought-after classic pony cars on the market. Sure, there were Challengers with bigger and more powerful engines, but the weight of those engines often made them feel heavy and cumbersome to drive. The T/A was a totally different animal. Under the lightweight factory fiberglass scooped hood sits the numbers matching, potent 340C.I. V8 fed by three 2-barrel Holley carburetors and exhaling through dual side exit exhaust, mated to the super strong A727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission with the 'Slap Stik' shifter and an 8¾” rear axle. This powertrain, as well as the fiberglass front and rear spoilers, make for a lightweight yet planted racing homologation car that feels like its ready to hit the track and dominate over any opponent. This was proven in the 1970 Trans-Am racing series where the Challenger held its ground excellently against competitors, with drivers like Sam Posey who was at the wheel of the #76 and #77 Challengers. This Challenger has been signed by Posey himself on the air cleaner lid for all to see when you pop those hood pins. This is a real deal T/A with the A53 option shown on the trim tag as well as the supplemental Trans Am trim tag and correct, T/A only, engine code in the VIN. Other features on this unique Challenger include power steering and brakes, high-performance aluminum radiator, Rallye instrument cluster, painted dual racing mirrors, as well as Mopar Rallye wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Radial T/A rubber. Chrysler Corporation was very well known for their bright and whacky colors in this era called the High Impact Paint (HIP) line. This T/A is finished in one of those very desirable High Impact Paint colors, FY1 Top Banana, or Lemon Twist as it would be called for Plymouth. The black striping, hood, and spoilers accent that bright color very nicely and really make this car pop! Inside you'll find a High trim grade black vinyl interior with bucket seats and a center console. The trunk is very clean and houses the spare wheel and tire. Underneath, this Challenger T/A is exceptionally clean and solid. This car would make the perfect addition to any serious classic collection, especially for those who may already have a Z/28 or Boss Mustang and want to complete their trinity of Trans-Am homologation cars from the era with one of the nicest T/As on the market.
