✯The Dream✯
This project started as a harmless conversation after we met the owner at an unrelated networking event. We said "classic cars", they said "Plum Crazy 70 Charger" and before you could say "R/T" the wheels were spinning and a build plan was in the works.

It took months to locate a '70 Charger within a day's drive of WI, needless to say there weren't very many Plum Crazy 440-6 Mopar's on the market. So when the owner's found a Charger in Arkansas, they moved quickly to get their shot at starting a MAJOR Mopar transformation. 


How major? 


The highlights include 318c.i. to 440 6-pack. Column shift to floor shift. Bare interior with a cargo seat to an original interior with Leather bucket seats. Flat black 500 SE to Plum Crazy R/T package.
