Hi-Performance Mopar magazine from the 1992-1994 period had quite a few articles following the purchase and rebuild of a 1971 340 convertible owned by Dave Ferro (of Totally Auto) at the time.  :2thumbs: :2thumbs:

All 1970 340 Challengers were A66 package cars with one exception, the Challenger T/A. The package code for the T/A is A53.

Production of the A66 cars totaled 6,933 for the US, Canadian and Export totals are not known.

Interesting, for 1972, that's almost the same number of 340 Rallye cars made, I think like 6,902 or something like that...
1972 Dodge Challenger Rallye 340, AT, Code TB3=Super Blue, SBD=8/17/1971.  Yes, a Rallye without the fender louvers from the factory because of the body side molding option.

Just wanted to add some production numbers for folks: I believe these are correct based on my investigations, but of course will not guarantee. :bigsmile:

Production numbers for 340 1970 Challengers

Total all 340 Challengers in 1970   was 6933   (343+1830+2360+2400)
of those produced, they break down in the following manner

JH23H0 3SPD 1970 CHALLENGER 2 DOOR HDTP 340-4       = 343
JH23H0 4SPD 1970 CHALLENGER 2 DOOR HDTP 340-4       = 1830      
JH23H0 AUTO 1970 CHALLENGER 2 DOOR HDTP 340-4       = 2360      


JH23J0 1970 CHALLENGER T/A 2 DOOR HDTP 340-4      = 2400

of the T/A Challengers, they break down into the following:
   -JH23J0 1970 CHALLENGER T/A 4SPD 340-4         = 989
   -JH23J0 1970 CHALLENGER T/A AUTO 340-4      = 1411

Here are the 1970 A66 Challenger convertible numbers

JH27H0B - 340
~ 178 - auto
~ 20 - 3-spd
~ 66 - 4-spd

I own a Y1 A66 Challenger automatic
Specifically, the A66 package was only available in 1970
You could order a 340 in 1971 in a hardtop and convertible and in JH and JS forms
