Hi guys and gals, Im here looking for expert advise. I found my 19 yr old sons dream car, 1970 Charger. Rough, but anythings doable with the determination he has. Ive got 40 yrs in teaching HS automechanics, retired 3 yrs ago, but not leaving until they have a replacement. Ive brought some pretty unusual cars back from the dead, bullet holes and all. This is going to be father/son projects, his charger and my '73 Cuda. From the posts I can see there is a lot of wisdom here.
Hey, I have a couple of those cars....

Greetings from northern Michigan.

That's some lucky 19yr old kid you got there.
When I decided that I wanted a Charger, I heard of a '68 that was a 383 model. The guy selling actually had a deposit on it from a guy but hadn't been in contact with the buyer in awhile. I tried to convince the guy to sell to me but he felt some weird obligation to the other guy.
I saw my '70 advertised in the classified section of my local newspaper. I knew the '70 models looked pretty much the same as the 68 and 69 cars. A buddy of mine had a green '70 with a 318 years prior. I paid $1700 and drove it home along with using it as my work vehicle while I rebuilt the engine in my truck. I planned on swapping the whole front end to a 1969 style but.....that big grille really grew on me. I know some dismiss the '70 and prefer the other years but not me. I love to see '70s at car shows and on the street, more so than any other car. These cars can be tough to restore though because of the ONE year only parts and because they made about HALF as many 1970 Chargers as 1968 or 1969 models.
