1970 Dodge Charger 500 with 440CI and 727 Auto. Car has spent all its life in Mississippi with 2 owners since new. Original owner started to change car to use as a drag car, replacing the original 318 motor with a 440 big block. He then realised the car was too heavy to be a serious contender and sold it. The new owner owned the car for 20 years and restored the car back to a street car retaining the 440 big block motor. I purchased the car last year and with a few modifications the charger now runs and drives and stops like new!!

Thanks to superb work from Richard and Cameron at Leonhardt Motors. Many thanks for your help guys.
