1970 Dodge CHALLENGER R/T 440 vs 1967 Plymouth GTX 426 Hemi! Having a drag battle with a classic Detroit muscle is sort of nurturing and cultivation of the muscle car culture that this country is having for such a long time. I`m pretty sure that every true American muscle fan feels the same way about it. So every time we come across a video with a drag battle of the legendary muscle cars from the golden era, we feel obliged to share that experience with you.
Today we have prepared one fine video clip of a drag race between two legends: probably the most desirable engine version of the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T, powered by the 440 Six-Pack that generates 390 HP. It does not get much better than this, especially when you take it into an account that only 2035 of them were made that year.
And on the other side, we have the 1967 Plymouth GTX 426 Hemi which was one of the very top performance cars of the decade of the 60s, receiving the nickname “The Gentleman`s Muscle Car” in its early years of existence. Under the hood it has a 426 Hemi that produces 425 HP, and it is one of only 733 that were made in 1967.
So, if you also love watching pieces of the American drag racing history in action, then this video will be the real deal for you.
