  2. 1970 Dodge Challenger Deputy 225ci slant six

    The low priced Challenger Deputy (Option Code A93) was a mid-year introduction (March 1970) and continued until the end of 1971 model production. This version of the Challenger was unique in several ways. The car was similar to the base Challenger hardtop with the following exceptions ; The rear quarter windows were fixed in place by leaving out the regulator and bolting the track. The rear window winder was deleted and the hole plugged with a chrome button. The standard engine was the 198 6 cyl. with the 225, 318 and 383 (2v and 4v) optional. The seats were the cheaper standard Plymouth Barracuda seats in black or white only. The steering wheel is coachman grain like the Barracuda. Things like dual horns, cigar lighter and night/day rear mirror were optional.

  14. Beach Boys Song. Shut Down Dodge Dart

    In theory that is true. But back then they were worried that the fuel wouldn't vaporize completely going through those long runners to the engine. We installed heating tubes from the exhaust manifolds to the bottom of the carburetor mounting area to help atomize the fuel and make sure it didn't cool down too much. I worked on that project in the Performance dynos at the Chrysler Tech Center back then. Check out the picture in the above post by GTX6970 and look under each carb and you will see a pipe going into the intake manifold. Here is another picture showing the heating tubes.
