If you’ve ever watched a Roadkill episode and wanted to know more about the car aside from what Finnegan and Freiburger have broken on it, check out this free episode of Roadkill Extra. In this free episode—Did we mention it was free?—Freiburger gives a five-minute walkaround of the Dirt-Track Challenger. He gives a breakdown on the condition of the car, its appearance, and the mechanical bits that let the dynamic duo hoon it in Roadkill Episode 54.
The car is a 1970 Dodge Challenger that was built for dirt-oval racing. Under its beat-up facade, the E-Body Challenger could almost be restorable aside from the welded doors and chopped roof. Under the hood sits a 318 cubic-inch Chrysler LA Small Block V8, which got a tunnel-ram intake and a cam but was otherwise stock. That sits in front of a column-shifted 904 automatic transmission.
Don’t take our word for it, though. Freiburger is a veritable hot-rodding encyclopedia so enjoy his depth of knowledge about the Dirt-Track Challenger.
