Spotted in Japan: A 1970 Dodge Challenger

June 02, 2012

I spotted this 1970 Dodge Challenger in Fukuoka, Japan. The first time I saw it, it was undergoing a full restoration.

This Challenger Coupe was built in 1970. It has a 6,276cc V8 engine.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
