1970 Charger RT with a supercharged Hellcat V8

This 1970 Charger R/T is being built by Level 7 Motorsports in Marion, Illinois. The company started with a restored Charger but unfortunately found a lot of issues with the body. They replaced the floor, firewall, quarter-panels, rear body panels, truck lid, fenders, and passenger door. Under the repaired body sits a Schwartz Performance G Machine chassis with a quick-ratio steering rack, Ridetech coilovers, and triangulated 4-link rear suspension. In the engine bay sits a supercharged Hellcat V8 crate motor installed using Schwartz Performance engine mounts, custom headers, and modified Canton rear sump oil pump. The engine’s 707 horsepower will be sent through a Bowler T56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission and Ford 9-inch rear end.

  1. How much would you charge to do a engine swoop on a 2018 Scatpack rear end and motor on a 2009 police charger 5.7L I’m talking about swooping the engine transmission and rear end off the scatpack and placing it all on the 2009 charger?

  2. A for effort? Body panel gaps? Hood in relation to bumper looks horrible. Bottom of door not much better. Bottom of bumper is toed out. Maybe just the angle of the shot but fender to door gap looks off as well. May be a quality issue with the repro. parts. But so what. Fix it. The build is not complete. The mechanical appears to be sound, but with the lack of attention to detail on the body I wouldn’t be confident in the car. Great build idea poor execution.

    1. Love the criticism! The photo of the car complete is what we started with, a B- restoration. We have no started to gap the car, we just wanted to push it outside and get a big picture moment. The new front fenders and hood are carbon parts from Speedkore.
