It’s time for another Barrett-Jackson auction, as January 21 is quickly approaching. We’re bound to see some fantastic vehicles like we always do, and one such item has been placed on the site. A 1970 Dodge Charger Restomod that looks like something a superhero would drive and features a NASCAR engine. And if anybody has any footage of this thing running, please send it our way. We’d love to hear it.
1970 Dodge Charger “Solo” Restomod: Details
This custom 1970 Dodge Charger has had over 4,500 man-hours put into it. Nicknamed “Solo,” it is powered by a Borla 8-stack induction, with a Holley multi-port EFI feeding the 730hp R5P7 NASCAR engine. Mated to the powerhouse is a TREMEC 5-speed dog-box manual transmission that sends power out to a 4.56-geared Dana 60 posi-traction rear axle. A set of Wilwood AERO calipers gives the car plenty of stopping power, 6-piston in the front and 4-piston at the back. The entire car has been dressed in a deep VoodooViolet Candy paint job.
A fully custom tube chassis equipped with RideTech strongarms up front, a parallel 4-link in the rear, and auto-leveling Ride-Tech shockwaves at all four corners. This allows the driver to lay frame when parked while maintaining a comfortable ride out on the highway. A glance at this 1970 Dodge Charger will reveal that the body has been modified. Body modifications include a 3-inch chop and 3-inch section, custom floor and smoothed firewall, custom wheel tubs, custom engine bay trim panels, and quarter-panels massaged to flow into the decklid.
The car’s interior features a custom-fabricated dash, a user-configurable Holley digital gauge cluster, and additional AutoMeter auxiliary gauges to monitor the engine’s vitals. A custom center console holds a Bowler Nightstick shifter with a custom-machined shift lever. The door panels, rear seat delete, and trunk upholstery are also custom. The car rolls on 19-inch Lightspeed Racing wheels and 13-inch wide Toyo Proxes tires. If you’re looking to buy a one-of-a-kind pro-tourer Dodge Charger, this may be the car of your dreams.
