Meet The 807 Horsepower 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A

Released At SEMA, Built By Graveyard Carz, It Is The Ultimate Challenger T/A...

Dodge launched the Challenger T/A, a special version of their well-known muscle car created for Trans-Am racing, in March of 1970. At the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas this past year, Mopar and Graveyard Carz collaborated to produce a contemporary homage to this famous car built over 50 years ago.

That T/A Got A HEMI? –

Built as a tribute to the original T/A and to celebrate Mopar’s 85th anniversary, this custom Challenger T/A featured several upgrades that take performance to the next level. The most notable was the HELLCrate Redeye 6.2L Supercharged Crate HEMI® engine and engine kit, which produces a whopping 807 horsepower and 717 lb.-ft. of torque on 91-octane pump gas.

Possessed By The Demon –

This engine is a significant upgrade over the standard HELLCrate engine, with a larger supercharger, increased boost pressure, and a higher rpm limit. It also features a forged alloy steel crankshaft, induction-hardened crank bearing surfaces, a 5150 alloy gun-drilled camshaft, and forged high-strength alloy pistons, among other upgrades.

Extra Performance Goodies – 

But the upgrades don’t stop there! This Challenger T/A Tribute also features a Moser Dana 60 rear axle with 3.54:1 gears, TTI headers, and a Magnum Force Transformer K-Member and front suspension. In addition, the American Powertrain 5-speed manual transmission is mated to a Centerforce dual-disc clutch, providing precise control over all that power.

Classic 1970’s Looks – 

The car’s exterior is just as impressive, with a PPG Vitamin C Orange paint job and custom T/A graphics from Phoenix Graphix. The T/A-style exhaust with megaphone tips by Classic Industries gives the car an aggressive sound, while the G60-15 Goodyear Polyglas rear tires and E60-15 Goodyear Polyglas front tires provide plenty of traction.

Inside, the car features an original-style interior with parts from Classic Industries, maintaining the classic look and feel of the original Challenger T/A.

The result of these upgrades is a car that pays homage to the past while pushing the limits of modern performance. Mark Worman and his Graveyard Carz team did an excellent job of creating a tribute to the original Challenger T/A, showcasing Mopar’s best. With its 807 horsepower, this Challenger T/A will turn heads and leave a lasting impression wherever it goes.

Great car! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. Mark does amazing work and I wouldn't ever consider buying a "Reality show" car, but I've been watching the work Mark does for over 10 years and he's different than your quick flipping reality shows. He is a true professional car builder and does quality work. If guys like Goldberg and Jacobs trust him with their cars, I'm all in. II can proudly say that this is my car and I love it!! Thanks for a great car Mark!! 27453 (1).jpegPXL_20230204_204515569.jpgPXL_20230204_210443105.MP.jpgPXL_20230616_011505729a.jpgPXL_20230410_174947792.jpg
