In 1900, the Dodge brothers made their first mark making parts for the nascent auto industry. Soon, they were building automobiles and later became a division of Chrysler in 1928.

In the 1970s, multi-carbureted pony car wars were empowered by the 'Win on Sunday, sell on Monday' belief. This resulted in teams in all corners of the motorsports world, including the popular SCCA Trans Am series, to take notice. Dodge entered Trans Am in 1970 with a Sam Posey piloted entry. In the showroom, the Challenger competed against the upscale Cougar and Firebird. It was based on the Plymouth barracuda platform but with a two inch longer wheelbase for more leg room.

The Challenger T/A version came equipped with a 340 cubic-inch engine and a trio of two-barrel carburetors - affectionately known as the '340 Six Pack.' Rated at 290 horsepower, suspiciously similar to the Z/28 and Boss 302, keen observers pegged it closer to 350 horses. It gulped air through an oversized scoop molded into a lift-off matte black fiberglass hood. Chrome-tipped dual exhausts exited dramatically in front of the rear wheels.

Adding to the allure, the T/A was one of the first production vehicles to use different size front and rear tires. The resulting modified camber elevated the tail, along with thick side stripes, bold graphics and spoilers front and rear, made it loud and brash and raucous and not at all subtle. A total of 2,399 T/A's were built.

This car was discovered rotting away in a farmer's field and underwent an exhaustive four year restoration that included replacement or extensive repair of almost all the sheet metal.

The late 1960s and early 1970s saw all manner of big-block pony cars that were pulling holeshots off the assembly lines and starting lines of America. Plymouth's Barracuda battled Mustangs, Camaros, and AMC's Javelin and AMX. Yet Dodge was conspicuously absent. Then in 1970 the E-body based Challenger arrived to compete against more upscale Cougars and Firebirds.

The performance version was the Challenger R/T with twin-scooped hood, beefier suspension and brakes, and 383 cubic-inches. Options included a 440 cubic-inch 4-barrel or six-pack, or the 425 horsepower Hemi. The Hemi's bowl shaped combustion chamber had angled valves, allowing for larger valves and making for better airflow, but the large castings and complex rocker arm geometry made them expensive to manufacture.

The legend was born when the 426 debuted as a race engine at the 1964 Daytona 500, placing first, second, and third. Only 11,000 were built during its 1964-1971 run yet the legend endures to this day.

This car is one of only 365 Hemi Challengers built in 1970. Raced in its early days - running 12.50 on street tires - it was stored for 32 years before being restored in 2010. Interestingly, an early owner blew up the factory automatic and installed a 4-speed. Today it has 41,000 miles as well as all-original sheet metal body panels. The restoration included a return to its original wild Plum Crazy paint and automatic transmission.
