1970 Dodge Charger by Peter Sagan
American culture is defined by those pure and menacing muscle cars – at least in my mind. This is why I usually keep an eye out for the next jaw-dropping project, and I believe I’ve stumbled upon just that. East European Peter Sagan had a thing for “The Dukes of Hazzard”, something we could all understand; listening to e General Lee bring havoc around town is always a pleasure.
Well, long story short: Peter decided he needed a Charger in his life, and this seems to be it. Inspired by “The Fast and The Furious”, Scott Tedro and Ken Maisano, co-owner’s of MASCAR Modern & Classic Autobody & Paint Repair in Costa Mesa, California delivered this astonishing project – the end result of over two years of work and thousands of man-hours.
It all started off with a clean 1970 Charger, disassembled and rebuild with an incredible amount of custom work; every single panel on the car has some fab work, and all the body modifications are all done in steel. Inside the cabin, anyone could notice the same level of attention to detail and exclusive taste, from the Procar bucket seats, hand-built console, to the modified dashboard and premium leather or swathed in high quality cloth or carpet.
Powered by a blown 572 wedge engine that delivers 1,000 hp and 1,200 lb-ft of torque, thanks to a Cam Motion billet hydraulic roller cam, Edelbrock Victor cylinder heads, T&D shaft-mount rocker arms, an Indy intake, and a BDS 8-71 supercharger, this beast needs no more praise; the specs speak for themselves. Please note the low ride stance, and consider the upgraded exhaust, brakes and suspension systems before you rate this custom Charger.
