Hi Michael,

another nice one from you - good idea about the engine switch and very well executed.

One thing though - it‘s a Challenger, not a Charger as mentioned in the title. :rolleyes:

Beautifully done!  The conversion work to the hood is flawless, and the work you did to make the hardtop convincing on this kit which was meant to be a convertible goes without saying.

I almost bought one with a slant six and three on the tree as a teen.  It was the only one I have ever seen equipped that way.

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.

That's some very nice work!

It's nice to see the every day cars from back then. Not every one had a Hemi or 440 6bbl car. :)

Beautiful work, love the detailing under the hood. 

 

I built a ragtop in a similar color and also used a slant-6 in mine.

Outstanding 'JH21C0' , Herr Kröger !  One of the teachers at the high school I went to had a blue 1970 Challenger coupe ; it was a Western Sport Special

By the way ; I have a set of your outstanding 'W11' Deluxe Wheel Covers waiting for the perfect candidate .
