Click above for a high-res image of Hotchkis' 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A

For this year's SEMA show, the crew at Hotchkis will unveil a pair of modified Dodge Challengers highlighting its focus on classic muscle and its modern-day counterpart.

The two matching Challengers – a 1970 T/A 340 Six-Pack and a 2009 SRT8 – will share yellow paint schemes, graphics and wheels, along with a host of parts that should make the T/A stick as well as – if not better – than the 2009 model.

The 1970 Challenger, known as E-MAX, was originally converted to 340 Six-Pack trim by the previous owner, and now features new fabricated steel upper A-arms bolted into relocated pickup points, strut rods with Heim joints, aluminum steering rods and a set of front and rear sway bars, along with a new set of springs that lower the Granddaddy Challenger by two inches. In addition to replacing the aging front suspension, Hotchkis set out to create a well-rounded classic, equipping the T/A with Stoptech brakes, a Flowmaster exhaust and Forgeline wheels wrapped in Yokohama tires.

Hotchkis likes to point out that all its suspension parts can be removed and replaced with the factory units, allowing owners to keep things traditional for shows and swapped out when the time comes to drive.

      This is what happens when you use Microsoft Paint instead of Photoshop.

      Could the Photochop be more obvious?

      What do you expect? They're not going to spend money on the real deal. GM will own Chrysler by the end of the month and probably shut down the production of new Challengers by the end of the year.

      There goes the business plan...

        Maybe eventually the Challenger will be on the same platform as the Camaro. And the Firebird. And the Charger, 300C and new Magnum.

        If anything GM will increase challenger production. The challenger is the only product that chrysler produces that is selling right now. They would be stupid to kill a vehicle that is brand new, and selling.
        tsk tsk...

      Yeah if GM buys Chrysler they will have to stop making Challengers so they can sell their Butt Ugly Camaro !!!
