I love them all! But, my favorites would have to be the 70 Challenger and 71 Cuda. I've got one out of two...don't think I can afford the 71 though.  :cry:

  The wide chrome sill moldings will be code M25.

  Well a 70 for both the Challenger and 'cuda. Although i've never owned an e-body 'cuda i like thier overall exterior design better than any year Challenger. Simply because the Plymouth hood is not the leading edge. Just my .02

I would say 70 for both E-bods. The only one I can't stand are the 71 Challengers,grille and tailights looks like someone is squinting.

Challenger- '70 and '71 (because the high-compression engines were still available)
'Cuda- '70 and '71 (for the same reason) but I also like '68/'69 'Cuda 340s.

BTW, if anyone lives in California's San Fernando Valley, there is a weekly car gathering at Flames restaurant at Corbin Ave and Plummer St. One guy there owns a nice red/red '70 440-6 bbl 'Cuda. Other Mopars, too, like a '70 Charger R/T 440 and '72 Duster 340 w/built engine.

I agree, too bland for my tastes. But I'd still take one.  ;D

For me, I'd have to say '70 Challenger, and '71 Cuda.

I still don't like the grills for the '71 Chally. Dunno why, but I guess they don't say 'Muscle Car' for me. IMO.

I never used to like the billboards on the '71 Cuda, but I've grown. I still prefer the '71 Cuda, and would want a 340 powered 'vert for cruising, the 'vert would be 'stripe delete', but a hard top Cuda needs billboards. :thumbs:

I'm still tempted to try to mate a '70 grill to my '72 Chally.

My fav is the 1982 challenger (haha....) ;D

But really favorites are '70 Challenger, and '71 Cuda.  But I would take any year really.  The older Cuda body style is also neat with all of that glass in the back.

I don't see why that would be too difficult . . . but you would need a 70 header panel for the grill.   :thumbs:
