Favorite year for Challengers, and favorite year for Barracudas.
« on: February 03, 2005 - 05:14:57 pm »
I'd run a poll, but there are too many options.

My favorite year for the Barracuda is 68, and for the Chally is 72.

I have always prefered the looks of the 72-74 Challengers although the 70 & 71 has grown on me over the years.

I like the looks of all the E-body Cuda's although if I had to pick I probably would go with 71.

I now own a 72 chally but way back when I owned a brand new 71. That was my favorite year.

Can anyone help me out?
I've noticed some challys have the polished looking chrome? outer rockers and I was wondering exactly what they are called and where can I get a repo or a really nice set used.
Here is a pic of what I'm talking bout in case I named it wrong.
Thanks all

I've got a 70 Challenger that I love... but that 71 Cuda is mighty fine. :thumbs:

72Chall77Doba,
What you are looking at is rocker panel moldings. Those were correct for 70-71 Challengers, the 72's had a much smaller width panel. If you want the 70-71 look, you might try jimsautoparts.com

I`ll take a `70 `cuda,either Hemi or AAR but I think I like the `71 Challenger grill the best and I really like the `72-`74 Rallye.

For me it was the 70 Challe T/A Red & black! :worship: The cudas Barring engine choice(of which by 74 there really was none :( (I got the 360) I do like the round tail lights, So I say 72/74, but give me a Hemi & I'll overlook the taillights(can't see em from the drivers seat anyway! ) ;D Rich.

For Challengers it is definately 71.  The 71s seem the most unique to me.  Its like you see a lot of 70s at the shows and its hard to tell the difference between 72-74 so the 71s always stood out to me.  Plus I have one lol.  As for barracudas I would have to say 70 or 71 even though I have a 73 I just love the square tail lights.

Have 2-70 cudas, but love the 71's the most(only if it has billboards). Have 2-71 challies, but I like the 70 taillights with the 71 challenger grille. :dontknow: i guess the only way to settle it is to save some cash for a 71 cuda and a 70 challenger. ;D
