    Car Craft: '70 Hemi Challenger Barn Find

    A dude in Iowa finds a solid '70 Challenger in a barn and picks it up for 25K. Oh ya, it has a Hemi/727. Pick up the October issue and shake your head....

    Also a possible 62 Max Wedge contender detailed along with a dude's early Barracuda AWB car. Good MOPAR issue IMO.

    Great 70 Challenger R/T Hemi garage/barn find, I don't rarely buy or subscribe or let alone read any of the rags anymore, so thanks for the heads up...

    Looked to be Plum Crazy under that faded silver paint, in a few areas under the hood... $25k is a great deal too sounds like anyway, seen way too many BS stories thou too...

    Kinda like hitting the powerball lottery. Oh wait, it might take a lottery win to restore it.

    I saw it on Ebay a month or so ago. Wonder where it went.

    If the car was purchased for 25K, you could do a top notch restoration and still have less into it than it would be worth. Sounds like a winning sitation to me.

    I'd leave it just like it is. That thing is cooler in its barn condition.

    Un freakin real.............

    The article in Car Craft said that the guy paid 25k for the car straight out of the barn, then immediately flipped it for an undisclosed amount. I guess he didn't really care about the car, he was just trying to make some quick $. I would clean it up and leave it unrestored.

    The car will cost 60K to 75K to restore properly. In the coming up tick in car market he can still get 125K to 150K. You just have to be patient. I am 3/4 thru my 67 hemi Rt and 60 K goes like water plus I am doing 98 percent of the work. The reality is their still is more cars out their to be found.

    welcome to FBBO, maybe you could go to the welcome wagon forum here & give us some background & introduce your self, maybe add some more photos & history too... there's also a "For E Bodies Only" Forum/FEBO ran by the same people as FBBO... good luck finding it...

    I bet you kicked yourself many times for letting that one go! I keep thinking of the 69 Hemi I had in a Coronet station wagon. Let it go way too cheap and now will probably never have another. Such is life.

    Cool story!
    Looks like you already went to youtube and tried to get a message to the guy who sold it on ebay. I thought in the article in Car Craft it went to Arizona.
    Good luck with the search, please keep us posted.

    Yes it went to Phoenix Az.
    I'm going there in November for the Nascar race and want to try and visit my old car and check it out! Car craft editor sent the buyer here in Des Moines 3 messages to call me but the guy will not.

    Taking a pocket full of cash to bring it back home?

  28. #20
    Yes I also looked on e-bay under completed listings with no luck...
