71 Challenger R/T - bumper color
« on: June 23, 2017 - 04:02:09 am »
I just saw this post on Facebook and I'm wondering about the bumpers color: they are body-colored + black? This was an option?

Yes, 71 only... The bumper isn't a standard steel bumper it's Elastomeric...

The optional bumpers could be Curious Yellow, but the top surface was always black Organisol....

V5X are black body side moldings, not stripes.

yes you're correct. i missed it in my multiple restore pics? the stamping in the trunk under the weatherstripping and the deck lid location. where are they exactly? i don't think i'll be removing the trunk gasket so the deck lid location would be more helpful. so far i've located the dash, radiator support, cowel, driver's door, fender tag  and engine block. i'll have to jack the car up to look at the trans. thanks in advance
