Title: Favorite year for Challengers, and favorite year for Barracudas.
Post by: Ghost on February 03, 2005 - 04:14:57 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.

Post by: 72Chall77Doba on February 03, 2005 - 04:37:45 pm
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 (http://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 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

Title: Re: Favorite year for Challengers, and favorite year for Barracudas.
Post by: RusTy/SE on February 03, 2005 - 09:53:37 pm
  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.

Post by: Fleet 500 on February 04, 2005 - 12:33:04 am
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.

Post by: challenger72rt on February 04, 2005 - 12:26:34 pm
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.

Post by: garrett007 on February 04, 2005 - 12:43:35 pm
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:

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)

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.

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!

IMO '70 'Cudas and Challengers are the best looking E-bodies built without having all of the useless "fluff" that alot of the '71's are known for.  I started in the Mopar hobby back in the late '80's buying all of the '70 'Cudas/Barracudas that I could find (pretty cheap then),  and I used to run across '71's all the time and the prices then were about the same as the '70 models were.  It seems that the Nash Bridges show turned the '71 'Cudas into the "flavor of the month car" (well, flavor of the decade?).  I just could never get into the cheese grator grille or gilled fenders, as for the billboards...  About as bad as the rice burners with their decaled up mobiles:)  Nothing worse than a '71 FE5 Ralley Red Hemicuda column auto, bench seat 3.23 non-sure gripped, BILLBOARD car get clobbered by a '70 383 4-spd 3.91 geared road runner which was FT6 Burnt Tan Metallic with tan interior and NO frills or stripes;)  Appearance does not win races.

To be honest, I love them all!  And, I am not a fan of hockey stripes for that matter...  The ones on my 'Cuda will not be reinstalled when the time comes (V6X car).

It would have to be a 71 Challenger RT and 71 Cuda. They both look great in their own way but I could own any year just so I had one.

For Challenger it would be 70 for Cuda it would be 71.  Gee I wonder why we like the 71 Cuda?  Like the TA Challenger better than the AAR.  But love all of the E-Bods.  Mopar or no car.

1970 Dodge Challenger R/T and 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda, although I like all year 'Cudas but can't say the same for Challengers. The sad mouth grille is not to my tastes (personally). 'Cudas are great through all years. Though, if you own a 1972-74 'Cuda, you really need to remove those butt ugly bumper guards in my opinion.  :lol:

It's got to be 71 for both. I've always liked four headlights in all of the Mopars. 71 Cuda is so much different than the rest. (4 headlights, fender gills, low production numbers) But I've always liked the four taillights on the 72-74 Cudas also.

Which years are the Best?
Personally.. I like them ALL.
Most importantly---Aslong as the cars done right!!

70 - 74 Challenger & Cuda's are all good!!

The fact is they are better than any other Muscle Car out there.. Period!

Everyone wishes they could own one. I know... I was one of them.
(Now I'm going to watch Vanishing Point again) LOL

Gotta go with '70 on the Challengers and no contest on '71 'Cudas. I've always had 'Cudas and am more partial to them overall.

Although I love to stare at all of them, I am partial to the 71 cuda first and the 71 challenger next.  From there, its all the same, but cudas before challengers.   :stirpot:

I like the look of a 71 Cuda, at least the ones in mags.  This said, I like them all.  Chally's are too far behind.....

1970 Challenger RT SE in B-7 blue.  The grill and the long tail lights w the small back window-can't be beat!

1970 Cuda with the Gran Coupe  interior.  The grill is cool, and I think the leather interior used in the Gran Coupe was pure class!

And of course, a four speed pistol grip in either case.

70 or 71 Challenger, any Cuda. But on the Cuda I'm partial to the round tail lights.

71 Cuda and 71 Challenger with the 2015 Challenger Scat Pack a close second.

There's no real question here, it's obvious that 1971 is the best year for both :2thumbs:

1970-71 Challenger

Any Cuda, except 1971 (I really don't like the grille)
Title: Re: Favorite year for Challengers, and favorite year for Barracudas.
Post by: 70chall440 on November 29, 2015 - 01:22:14 pm
70 Challenger hands down. RT or RT options, pistol grip and rally hood (never liked or cared for the shaker).

72-74 Cuda (without bumperettes) small block 4 spd.

Would love to build a Frankenstein, with 70 challenger dual front h/lamps , grille & valance pnl with t/signal lamps, but 72 Cuda rear for the round taillamps & Cuda rally hood. Wonder if that's do-able ?

anything is doable with a plasma cutter and welder.... whether it will look good or not is another question.

It will look awful. I had the idea of buying a '72-74 Challenger (because they are a bit cheaper than '70/71) and then put the front grille from 70/71 model. I thought it was a brilliant idea until I saw one yellow Challenger for sale with that exact Frankensteinery. It just doesn't work.

"Frankensteinery" I like it, that might be my new favourite word.  :roflsmiley:

When I was a kid I knew a pair of brothers that built a "Frankensteinery" . It was a convertible with a 70 Challenger in the front and a 70,71? Cuda in the rear. I always wondered what happened to that "creation" ?

This would have been in the mid/late 70's early 80's. I can't remember the colour though.

1970 for me  challenger. And cuda . In 1971  cuda very nice but with the extra driving lamps just a little to much . But great looking cars cheers
