This 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Is The World’s Only HEMI Sunroof Variant

At the end of the day, the Dodge Challenger is one of history’s most iconic vehicles. Whether or not you’re a fan of the classic pony car, there are a handful of reasons to respect its lineage, including the fact that during the car’s 1970 model year, only nine R/T convertible models were manufactured. To accompany the brand’s drop-top variant, 82 unique Challenger platforms were gifted with a factory sunroof; however, only one would sport Dodge’s powerful 426 HEMI.

As you might have guessed, the 1970 Dodge HEMI Challenger R/T you see here is the aforementioned specimen, calling upon an eye-catching orange exterior, a period-correct luggage rack, and all-original sheet metal, making it an inherent collector’s item for any classic enthusiast. As the only example of its kind, this sunroof-adorned R/T has undergone a full Concours restoration by renowned collector and Challenger expert, Steve Juliano, whose oversight was invaluable during the implementation of various original and NOS parts. Below the vehicle’s hood, buyers will find a powerful dual-quad 426 HEMI engine, power steering/brakes, and an original drivetrain that’s been treated to the kind of TLC you’d expect from one of the world’s most renowned classic car restorers. Head to Mecum to learn more about the classic model which, sadly, has already been sold to its next owner.
