Revamped 1970 Dodge Charger 500: Carbon Fiber Marvel with Hellcrate Power

In 2023, Finale Speed, situated in Yukon, Oklahoma, undertook the monumental task of reviving a classic 1970 Dodge Charger 500. The result? A breathtaking masterpiece boasting a carbon-fiber exoskeleton, meticulously crafted by Finale Speed, draped over a sturdy Salvaggio Auto Design chassis. This Charger roars with the might of a supercharged Hellcrate 6.2-liter Hemi V8, paired seamlessly with a Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission and a 9” limited-slip rear end, featuring a 3.89:1 gear ratio.

This awe-inspiring machine is not just about power; it’s a fusion of cutting-edge technology and classic design. Wilwood cross-drilled and slotted disc brakes, alongside JRI adjustable coilover shocks, ensure unparalleled handling and control. The four-link rear suspension and power-assisted steering further elevate the driving experience.

Visually striking, the Charger sits on staggered-width multipiece 18” American Racing wheels, commanding attention on the road. Its interior is a blend of comfort and style, featuring high-backed Recaro seats, adorned in sleek black trim, and complemented by Old Air Products air conditioning for a comfortable ride, even in the most demanding conditions. A custom sound system adds a touch of modernity, ensuring every journey is accompanied by an immersive audio experience.

Purchased by a dealer in November 2023, this modified Charger now seeks a new owner in Texas. Alongside its unmatched performance, it comes with component-related literature and a clean Oklahoma title, ready to grace the streets with its presence.

Incorporating Dodge’s legacy with Finale Speed’s innovation, this 1970 Dodge Charger 500 stands as a testament to the enduring appeal of American muscle cars, redefined for the modern era.
