Can anyone tell me where the coil is located on a 1970 Dodge Challenger with a 340?

Hmm......... this is the only 340 photo I could find that showed the coil. The darn air cleaners are so huge on these cars its a wonder you see the valve covers.

Rob:
Thanks for the link, you are right the air cleaner hides just about everything! The picture also shows the fuel lines which I also wasn't sure about so it helped a lot. Thanks again

I believe the coil was located on a bracket on the manifold, just to the left of the distributor. I had a '71 Mopar small block years ago, and I'm going entirely from memory, so it may have been to the right of the distributor, but it was in that general area.

My memory recalls that location as well. I had 76 RoadRunner (Volaire) with the 360 intercept motor.
