In 1981 Walter Baker bought a 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A for the grand ole sum of $700 which by all accounts was probably the going rate for a beat up old Challenger. What he didn't realize was that he bought a very rare limited-edition 70' Dodge Challenger T/A built for racing.
According to Walter he drove the car for about six months after he purchased it and then decided to do some body work but eventually ran out of time. He then decided to park it for the next 20 years. Walter said he always had an idea the car was rare but never actually knew how rare it was until one day he contacted Todd Lewis of Xtreme Restorations who told him he had one of the rarest Mopars in existence.
