1970 Dodge Challenger T/A

Here we are with one very rare muscle car model, 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A. The fact that you can’t see this vehicle on the streets (almost never), makes it much more interesting than the other models. Back in the late 60’s and the early 70’s, the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) had a racing series called Trans Am, very popular series used for road courses racing.

They were popular enough, so all the manufacturers got involved of making street versions of the cars that you saw on the track. This Dodge beast is powered by Chrysler’s 340 cubic-inch or 5.6 liter V8 Six-Pack small-block engine with 3 two-barrel carburetors sitting on top. This engine is rated at 290 horsepower – 290 lb-ft of torque. Another interesting fact about this vehicle – the first car in American automobile history built with two different size tires, the front tires are little bit shorter.
