Dodge Challenger T/A

With the 1970 debut of its all-new Dodge Challenger and third-generation Plymouth Barracuda "pony" cars, Chrysler Corporation charged into the sports car club of America's (SCCA) new Trans-American Road-Racing Series for "production small sedans."

Dodge's street machine was dubbed the Challenger T/A( Trans-America) and the companion Plymouth the AAR 'Cuda (All-American racers). Chrysler's 340 cubic inch (5.6L) V-8 engine with special block and heads mated to a close-ratio four speed manual transmission were standard. An Edelbrock intake manifold with three Holly two-barrel carburetors spwned the famous "340 Six-Pack" option.
