Pre-Production Photo of a 1970 Challenger R/T. Notice on the trunk lid, the Challenger & R/T emblems are stacked on the left side

Outstanding thread!
Haven't taken the time to read it all but will endeavor to do so as time allows.
Had many Camaros back in the day including a 1969 Z28 and a 72 SS, 70 RS and many more Camaros. My pride and joy however was a 1968 SS396 Camaro Convertible. Deluxe interior, Power windows and top, what a car. Bought it for $2500 around 1978, sold it like an idiot. It was the brother of this beauty i recently saw sell at auction for over 50K.

1970 Challenger T/A with standard hubcaps and trim rings







Those look a little too shiny - should have more of a brushed look to them like the first T/A

Hi JimHD

We ALL regret selling cars that we owned many years ago. Or cars we could have bought for a song that are now worth megabucks. But the simple truth is, they were just used cars at the time. We had no idea they would be worth big bucks in the future.

Hindsight is ALWAYS crystal clear.

PS: In 1973 I had a chance to buy a 1964 289 Cobra for $5000. It was painted Brown Metalflake, the interior needed a lot of work and the wire wheels needed restoration. I passed on it and bought a brand new 1973 Firebird Formula 400 instead for about $1200 less. Wasn't much of a decision - an old beat up sports car in a funky color or a brand new muscle car.

Oh well.

1969 SS396 Camaro Convertible with rare DX1 stripes



EDIT:

Oops! The DX1 stripes were not available on the SS model. Only the Base, RS and COPO could have them

1971 Challenger Order Form



Full Size:

http://board.moparts.org/ubbthreads/...ordersheet.jpg

NOTE: This is an early form. It was revised a few months later. A21 (elastomeric front bumper) and A22 (elastomeric front and rear bumpers) along with M71 (elastomeric front - R/T only) were added to M73 (elastomeric front and rear bumpers - R/T only):









1971 Challenger Convertible with A22





1971 Challenger R/T with M73





Elastomeric Bumpers were a 1971 only option for the Challenger/Challenger R/T

The Devil is in the details . . .

I have seen these Quarter Panel Scoop Moldings on a number of 1969 Super Bees. They were never an option.




They are from the 1968 Dodge Coronet 500



You could order M46: Quarter Panel Air Scoops

1969 383 GTS





AFAIK, the power bulge engine callout inserts were black, not red. May just be an owner modified item

This may be the only 1970 Boss 302 in the country . . . not to have chrome Magnum 500 wheels (j/k)
