Did you know . . .

In 1969 Chrysler produced 2,128 Convertible Road Runners. This was the highest run of Chrysler Muscle Car Convertibles ever.

May 15-20, 2012
This Lot scheduled to be sold SAT 2:10PM

Nope - they all didn't have the Magnum 500 Wheels. This car has the standard hubcap/trim ring wheels

Quote:
Judging by the '70 Boss 302 Mustangs we see at car shows these days, it would be easy to assume that nearly every one of them came with the optional Magnum 500 wheels. Actually, according to Kevin Marti's Ford production database, only 38 percent of the 7,014 '70 Boss 302s came from the factory with the chrome-plated Magnums; most had standard 15-inch steel wheels with "corporate" hub caps, which were rather plain-looking covers with trim rings. Over the years, many owners have replaced the hub caps with Magnum 500s.

How can you tell if a 1969 GTX or Road Runner has the Air Grabber option if the hood is closed?

The Hood Air Inlet "Screens" will be Rallye Red:







The Air Grabber Air Box also came in Black (The N96 Air Grabber Option was $55.30):




They are Black (no "screens" - just decoration) when the option wasn't ordered:







Here are a pair of reproduction Hood Inserts (no Air Grabber). The black portion would be body color (or semi-gloss black for the performance hood treatment) and the silver inserts would be black (again S-GB)



Here is an underside photo (original pair):



Hood without Hood Inserts:

Chevy called it's 1969 Camaro ZL2 optional Ram Air Hood the "Super Scoop"



What did Dodge call their 1970 T/A Hood?

1969 L89 396 SS Camaro (1 of approx. 11)



Chevy built 311 L89 396 Camaros in 1969. The option was priced at $711, a substantial reduction from the 1968 price. As was the L78 which was priced at $316. But with the L78 price reduction, the number of cars built wasn't that much different. 4,575 for '68 and 4,889 for '69

NOTE: I don't know where the data is coming from for the 68/69 L89 Camaro Convertibles. Chevy didn't keep breakdown records for their cars like Ford and Chrysler did.
