I'm trying to figure out a production break down of it's options, I figured out their where around 900 EV2 challengers built and around 900 440-4 speed challengers built in 1970. Is there a reference that I can look at for the other options like the A33 track pack to see how many came with that?

Sorry I haven't posted pics yet, I've been extremely busy. Unfortuantely I'm not the happiest with my purchase, many things are wrong with the car. The seller said that it only needed minor things to be perfect but that not the case. The trans slips out of gear when it is reverse the dash needs to be totally rebuilt nothing works on it there are paint bubbles on the quarters the glass  all the way around the car is all scratched up and not clean the carpet in the interior wasn't even complete when I got it. I'll try to post pictures later tonight.

After working on it all day and cleaning it up I might have been to harsh on it, the paint seems to be well. This was my first 4 speed car so I'm now a master at that and it should be a good and easy car to make perfect.

For sure: You knew there would be a few things wrong at that price but overall you got a great car for money spent. I've seen way worse for way more $$$.

Yeah overall it's a good car, runs like a bat out of hell. Only thing that needs direct attention is the interior, but that should be a good winter project!

 I think I recall you being on the roadrunner forum but I'm not for sure. Is yours B7 blue? Mine is a 383 auto, it was originally BL1 sand pebble beige but was painted orange. The white vynl top, burnt orange interior and go wing are original to the car.

I prefer the magnums. In 1969 the steel wheels would be blue....except A12 cars of course
