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.
