70/71 Challenger

The first of the Motown Missiles was a 1970 Dodge Challenger. It was updated to a 1971 in 71 with replacement of the front and rear panels and tail lights. One of the more famous items tested was the Clutchflite, which was basically and automatic transmission using a heavy flywheel and a clutch (instead of a torque converter) to launch. They're were deemed to not be reliable and a 4-speed replaced it. Another one of the less successful items tested was to lighten the rear axle housing by acid dipping, Swiss Cheese Drill it, and use freeze plugs to plug the holes.
