Legendary Dodge Challenger Earns New Recognition

Written By, Brad R

While it may be 2021 today, we are still in awe of the remarkable classic muscle car in the 1970 Dodge Challenger. Sometimes to appreciate the present, we have to take a look back. Looking for a vehicle with fantastic resale value? The Dodge Challenger is one of those vehicles that remains a fantastic product. How do we know? Just check out the mind-binding cost for a lone classic 1970 Dodge Challenger. At the most recent Barrett-Jackson convention, the public and buyers gathered at the World's Greatest Collector Car Auctions to see a top-prize go to a custom 1970 Dodge Challenger. Labeled by the voters as “Best in Show'' thanks to a remarkable 2,000 horsepower output from its extensive 9.4-Liter big-block HEMI engine that is equipped with an F-3R ProCharger. Allow us to break down the reasons this award was given to the Dodge muscle car.

More Muscle? More Awards

The output now in this classic muscle car is more spectacular than any production vehicle offers today. Owners are more than thrilled to have 400 horsepower, much less 2,000 horsepower. This thoroughly transformed Dodge Challenger won the prime prize for a genuine reason. Aside from being beautiful inside and out, this 1970 Dodge Challenger carries an all-steel body that was made from a custom-fabricated and includes PPG Slanted Brown paint. The Roadster Shop chassis provides its own fully independent rear suspension. The Baer brakes and 20x8-inch wheels up front with 20x15-inch rear wheels. The custom Billet machined headlights, taillights, and grille that perfect the look of an impressive Dodge Challenger. While this 1970 Challenger doesn't bring nearly any of the high-tech found in the Challenger today, we can see why it won this award. 

Classic Dodge Custom Build Is Ahead of the Competition

As we look at the entire 2021 lineup at this collection (an array that carried a 1932 Ford Tudor, a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air, 1963 Chevrolet Bel Air Wagon, and a 1972 Ford F-100 pickup) we are more impressive by the Dodge brand. The grand prize was a $10,000 cash reward to the owner Robert Zahabi from Queensland, Australia. The 2021 Barrett-Jackson Cup and title of "Ultimate Best In Show" sponsored by eBay Motors. Not many vehicles appear with the widespread influence the 1970 Dodge Challenger earned and so many years later, it's still gaining awards and attention. 

“This year’s Barrett-Jackson Cup Competition was a testament to the level of talent of today’s custom coachbuilders. Over the past few years since we first hosted the Barrett-Jackson Cup, we’ve seen a tremendous surge of talent and vision take life in these custom builds. I am so honored to be a part of giving these Cup entrants the recognition they deserve. Congratulations to our winner, finalists and all of our entrants,” said Steve Davis.
