    vanishing point challenger.jpgWhile flipping through the pages of CollectorCarNation this
    week, I came across this gorgeous 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T which the owner
    claims was used in the 1997 remake of the legendary movie Vanishing Point.  Nevermind the fact that the famous Challenger
    driven by Kowalski in Vanishing Point was white as the owner mentions that the
    car shown above was repainted but other than that – it is a numbers matching
    383/4-speed car.

    The owner of the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T claims that he
    has full documentation to prove that this car was used in the 1997 filming of
    Vanishing Point starring Viggo Mortensen and that the car was appraised at “well
    over $70k a few years ago”.  However, the
    owner is looking to get this gorgeous ’70 Challenger R/T go for a very thrifty
    $57,950.  In addition to having the
    proper, original 383 big block V8 engine and a freshly rebuilt 4-speed manual
    transmission, this Challenger has new brakes, new front seats, new carpeting,
    and – most importantly – the news that this particular Challenger was never
    used in a crash scene during the filming of Vanishing Point.

    I have seen number-matching 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T models
    go for this price just based on a similar condition but when you take into
    consideration the fact that this car was used in movie Vanishing Point (which
    has become a Mopar cult classic), this vehicle has more collectability than
    your average ’70 Challenger.  The listing
    does not state that this was actually one of the cars driven by the Vanishing
    Point hero Jimmy Kowalski but if it is – you have to wonder why the owner opted
    to paint it orange rather than the original white.  Regardless of the color, this looks like a
    great collector’s piece.
