But that’s not to say that all of the remaining variants are very common. While the numbers remain high when talking about engine options, they become much lower when certain features are taken into account. For instance, while the 383-powered Challenger may seem very common at 12,281 units built, only 2,522 of them came with the Special Edition package.
Not rare enough for you? Well, the Challenger SE you’re looking at is even rarer than that, simply because it was originally finished in Plum Crazy. How many cars were painted in this High Impact color, you ask?
Chrysler didn’t keep specific records, but since it offered quite a few hues in 1970, we’re probably looking at fewer than 50 examples.
Make no mistake, it’s still a project car that needs a lot of work to turn heads, but the fact that it still runs and drives makes it easier and more affordable to restore. On top of that, it still includes most of its original components and comes with “a ton of spare parts.”
The seller doesn’t provide info on the car’s past, but he does say that he purchased it in this condition to restore. He didn’t get to work on it, and now the warehouse he’s keeping it in is being sold, so the Mopar has to go (alongside seven other classic cars).
If you’re in the market for a rare and nice project car, this Challenger SE is being auctioned off by eBay seller “florida*usa*wholesale*cars.”
