1971 Cuda - Black with Orange interior, Wheels & Billboards



Nope - that is not the way it came from the factory. You could order a Black Cuda with an Orange interior:

Interior:

Exterior:

But the billboard stripes only came in either Black or White:

But . . . people will customize their cars. Here are two other non-factory color combos:






How The 1971 'Cuda Billboard Stripe Came To Be

Quote:
I can neither confirm nor deny this story, but I supposedly met the designer of the billboard stripe at the Barrett-Jackson auction in 1995. His name is Tom Hale (not to be confused with former head-of-design and fellow AAR owner Tom Gale), and he has created the event poster for the BJ auction for many years. He told me that in 1970 he was working in the Chrysler graphic arts department. He had created the AAR stripe and some other stripes, but was bored with stripes and wanted to design cars. While he was waiting for a departmental transfer his boss came to him and told him his next assignment was to design the stripe for the 71 Cuda. Tom was pissed and in a fit of rage he drew a stripe that covered the entire back half of the side of the car. He submitted the artwork and thought, "if you want a stripe I'll give you a [email protected]#$%&g stripe!" To his astonishment management took the stripe seriously and it was approved.

1970 Challenger Hemi R/T with M51 Sunroof









There were 197 Sunroof equipped Challengers in 1970. The option ($461.45) was more expensive than the convertible (a difference of $269 more then a hardtop).

This car is/was owned by Galen Govier - the man who decodes Mopar cars. This is an ultra rare car - the combo of the Hemi, the Shaker Hood and of course the Sunroof.
