Gormango 1970 Dodge Challenger T / A is an unrestored 6-pack gem

There are many cars that date back to the muscle car era, but there’s still a lot to say in today’s market, sometimes exchanging hands for small fortunes. But even with this carefully selected lot, some of these cars stand out from the others.

One of the rarest representatives of that era Dodge Challenger T / A.. The Trans-Am Series homologation special, manufactured only in 1970, produced less than 2,400 units. It’s a rare bird, but even rarer when talking about birds intended to be sold in Canada.

In the whole run, records show that the northern neighbors of the United States got only 43 such cars. It is said that you are looking at one of them and are ready to return to the United States by the hands of the new owner.

The machine is in its original state because it has not been restored. Packed with original drivetrains, paints and interiors, it will be available for sale in Indianapolis in mid-May. “Sale of two original broadcast sheets and retailer documents.”
