1970 Dodge Charger

Owner's Description:

This FM3 1970 Dodge Charger is currently owned by Leroy McQuay of Jonesboro, Arkansas. It was purchased in 1978 for $650.00 with 98,xxx miles on it from the 2nd owner who graduated high school with the original owner. Best research to date indicates car was sold new in Jonesboro, Arkansas. VIN tag and a really good broadcast sheet recovered from one of the seats has provided invaluable info. Car was built at the Saint Louis plant in May, 1970 we think. It was powered by a mild 318 engine, light-duty 904 trans, and 2.76:1 axle ratio. This car has never been a "trailer-queen" by no measure. After buying it with the original 98,xxx miles this owner then racked up another 80,000-plus miles before an engine and transmission rebuild in the year of 2000 (the original trans had been replaced in the early 1980s with a junk yard swap).

The car had also been repainted in the late 80s or early 90s by a "so-called painter." It being the 30th anniversary of the 1970-models at the Mopar Nationals the car and its "poor-boy restoration" made its way to the show in Columbus, Ohio. Since 1978 this car has hauled a trunk full of coolers full of shrimp fresh off the boats of the Alabama coast numerous times. It has transported hardhats, shovels, many a kid, grandkids, and a few "messy" diapers. It has been a true joy to own and drive over the years. The car and the owner are currently undergoing a few changes that are bound to make for many more good memories over the coming years.

The car now has a 5.7L Hemi engine installed.
