The white v6r doesn't stand out so much as a different color, but the black v6r really does look like a different color.

Still looks cool though.  Thanks for the pics!

Almost as rare as the "mod-tops" was the "gator-grain" tops. They were available only in 1970 and I personally don't find them all that attractive ... but that's just me ...



and a close up of the gator-grain vinyl showing the detail of the texture ...

Thanks guys, yeah like it too. It's not a real R/T car so a couple little changes won't hurt it! I do have a thread on it's current restoration in the resto thread. "70 green top challenger"

Lets talk about Challenger V21 performance hood treatment for a moment ...

In 1970 if you ordered your Challenger with the V21 performance hood treatment you got a very attractive looking vinyl blackout treatment to the raised portion of the hood like this ...




But in 1971 Dodge apparently mixed things up a bit.

In 1971 it appears that you could get a hood treatment that looked just like it did in 1970 like this one ...

example 1


Or you could get one that had the hood treatment with a "R/T" graphic like this one ...

example 2


Or you could get just the "R/T" graphic by itself like this one ...

example 3



Is example 1 a 1971 Challenger with an "incorrect" 1970 vinyl hood treatment?

Is example 2 a "correct" V21 vinyl hood treatment for a 1971 Challenger?

Is example 3 a "standard" graphic as part of the R/T package without the V21 vinyl hood treatment?


How should these three examples be coded?  :dunno:

Example 1 is a non-R/T...not sure if it has he correct stripe, or even if V21 was available on non-R/T's

The data book says you could get it if the Challenger had the 340.

So .... for your 1971 Challenger with the J54 performance hood you could get your hood in one of four ways:

V21 without R/T graphic for non-R/T Challengers (example 1)

V21 with R/T graphic for R/T Challengers (example 2)

Just the R/T graphic for R/T Challengers (example 3)

or blank for non-R/T or stripe delete R/T Challengers

There you have it. :clapping:

No...You're almost correct. Example number three... just the 'R/T" on the hood is not a hood treatment....it's a standard part of the R/T package. Every 71 R/T should have R/T on the hood UNLESS equipped with N96 Shaker hood. :2cents:
