HEMI is possibly the rarest of its kind as Dodge only produces 356 pieces. Only 60 units of the R/T were purchased with the SE package and only 9 were sent with the convertible. Some Challengers with 440 cubic inches (7.2 liters) six-cylinder engines are also uncommon. Dodge produced only 296 SEs and 99 convertibles.

I could go on about all the powertrain/decoration combinations that have left the factory with triple-digit production numbers, but they’re not as rare as those with sunroofs. Yes, Dodge offered an optional sunroof in 1970, but it wasn’t a popular choice. Only 197 customers received one, and it is estimated that there are far fewer people alive today than that number.

It is therefore one of the possibilities many Mopar fans are enthusiastically pursuing. When they found out, they threw a lot of money at the Challenger. Of course, it all depends on the condition and powertrain of the vehicle. For example, in 2019, the only 1970 Challenger HEMI with an original sunroof sold for a staggering $660,000.

The Mopar seen here doesn’t have a 426 cubic-inch (7.0-litre) HEMI V8 under the hood, but it’s by far one of the more compelling 1970s Challengers. Not only because it has a sunroof but also because it is a fuel-efficient vehicle. It has only 18,500 miles (29,773) on it.

Although very rare (perhaps one of the fewer than 50 ordered with the 340 cubic inch/5.6 liter V8 engine), the Challenger has repeatedly gone unsold since its launch. It was originally offered for sale on eBay in March 2022 and re-auctioned in May. It stayed with the seller because the reserve was not met. Current owners most likely have had it since October 2021, when we first spotted it during a yard sale. The camera footage shows the car not being clean, just as it comes out of the warehouse, and gives us a glimpse of the underside of the roof.
