Imagination is a great thing, but it only goes so far, running into the tyranny of reality. Or does it? The 1970 Challenger R/T Hemi is one of the fastest appreciating cars on the market, making it virtually impossible for anyone but the wealthy to own and then too risky to drive lest it be lost in an accident. How you dream of going back to 1970 and buying one fresh off the factory assembly line and driving it for all its worth. Well, now you can! The BKPE Archetype Hemi reproduces the Challenger R/T in exacting detail from the finest parts available. Because it is 1970 all over again, you get the same buying experience you would have had back then, allowing you to option your Hemi as you want it. Your Challenger R/T awaits. What can we build for you?

We invite our clients to review these specifications and available options and then click on Pricing Information to obtain information on how to order your own Archetype Hemi.
