1970 A66 Challenger Registry

1970 A66 Challenger Registry
I am excited about setting up an A66 Challenger members registry in order to document our special Challengers which were only made in this format for the 1970 model year.  They are really RT Challengers with the same performance equipment, but with a powerful, high compression small block 340 engine. This is an area of strong interest of mine and I have a personal interest in these unique cars (having my A66 convertible since 1979, and owning a number of Challengers back in the day)

This is a collaborative effort with your help, as I hope to collect as much information as possible on our A66 cars in order to document and make the data and statistics available to A66 owners or enthusiasts of these unique Challengers. Our cars are experiencing the 50+ year anniversary of their initial production this year (2020) and I thought it would be great to put the information all in one place.  It would be great to estimate how many are still out there?

Please consider registering your A-66 Challenger by completing a registration form.  There is no cost or fees for this and the registry is being organized for the fun and interest of A66 owners. 
I look forward to hearing from you and am always welcome any suggestions you may have. 

I have attached the registration form; please fill out the form and scan it to the registry email a66challengerregistry61@yahoo.com. Forms can also be obtained by going to "a66challenger.com and again returned to the registry e-mail.

 Thank you for your interest and support in documenting our A66 Challengers!

Anyone remember this A66 Challenger 4 sp that was restored by the original owner (Mom) about 6 years ago and was featured in Mopar Muscle?

Mom is Linda C in Pennsylvania and bought the car new in B5 Blue with a white interior and top. Hope Mom's A66 Challenger is alive and well!

A point of interest is continually raised specific to A66 Challengers in the application of the V-8 fender emblem on A66 Challengers?

One of the reasons I included the designation of V-8 emblems on the A66 Registry Form is to determine how early or late the emblem was used on the A66 Challengers.

It continues to be a question for many A66 owners. Was the V8 emblem put on the early A66 Challengers during the time that the metal call outs were not yet ready? The use of 340 hood decals could be related to this question, as early A66's did not have the metal callouts on the hood until just about December (give or take).

When submitting a formal Registry Form, I would be able to compare and contrast the data. Were the V8 emblems used on just the early cars with decals, later with the metal callouts, or for that matter; was there a difference in using V8 emblems between the LA and Hamtramck plants?
Registering your A66 cars can help answer these questions, or at least to narrow down approximate dates where the emblem was used.

All A66 cars welcome!
