I prefer the 150 hp 318 to the other motors, I really enjoy the early smog motors that polute more than a properly tuned BB.  also the 198 /6 barracuda's   in 1970.   :thumbs: :thumbs: thats a muscle car.  :drool:

Personally Id rather own a   65 hemi under glass, 65 formula s 4spd, 67 commando vert, a 68 SS a 67 383, 69 440 a 70 hemi cuda, 71 hemi cuda, 70 440-4 challenger rt and a few more       than One 71 Hemi Cuda Convertible.    :burnout:  :driving:     gee at  an average of 25,000 or 2 million.     Gee 80 cars or 1, 80 cars or 1        Ill take 80.  :thumbs:  ok lets call it 40 some are expensive (but no number 1's or 2's only 3's and 4's)

Favorites   
69  383 4spd vert (yellow or the one year only teal)
68 SS (as delivered)
65 Hemi Under Glass  (hurst gold and stickers)
67 formula S 273-4 4spd   maybe a green or yellow.  white with gold
and for challengers  mine (because it mine) 1973 dopelgangered 360 727
1965 barracuda. Was 273/2 904 car had 440 360 in plans
1996 Dodge 1500 ST 5.2 Np3500 4x2 club cab short bed

I like 71's the best for challys and 73's for the barracudas. '71 cudas have the best grilles, but the back ends for 70 and 71 are lame. I like the round taillights on 72-74. But don't get me wrong, I'd be happy to own any of them and I wouldn't turn one down at the right price!

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


In addition to jims auto parts, I have also seen these available at metro parts.  Check out http://www.metropartscompany.com/Shop/Scripts/prodList.asp?idcategory=38&curPage=2&sortField=description

I haven't seen them in person from either place (jims or metro) so I don't know about the quality.  Post pics when you get them put on!

The Challengers I would have go with the 70-71 but prefere the 70 with the square crosshatch, flat black style grill, I'd take any Cuda and am partial to the round tail lights but without the large bumper guards. I am partial those but any Cuda would suite me just fine!

I always wanted a 70 cuda and couldn't stand the 71 with the grill and side fender grills. I liked the hockey stripe on the quater not the billboard.Then I grew up just a little and I changed.
