According to this page from the Challenger data book did you know that ...

The data book lists recommended color combos but those were often revised.  And as you mentioned many exceptions exist.

Black TX9 Challenger with a red V9E Bumblebee stripe. That red Bumblebee really "pops" against the black. I seem to prefer the accent stripes that have a lot of contrast with the base color of the car ... like this one! :thumbsup:

So far we have seen 70 Cuda's with the V4J chartreuse, V4M magenta and V4W white strobe stripes. To round out and complete the V4 strobe stripes here is a 70 Barracuda 'vert in FY1 Lemon Twist with a V4X black strobe stripe

Some more V9W white Bumble Bee stripes ...


V9W white Bumble Bee over FK5 Dark Burnt Orange ... and it's a convertible too! :2thumbs:




V9W white Bumble Bee over EB5 Bright Blue




V9W white Bumble Bee over FC7 Plum Crazy




and V9W white Bumble Bee over TX9 Black. I really like this one since it has the white interior and the contrast between the black exterior and white Bumble Bee stripe and white interior is really crisp. :thumbsup:

Some Hi-Impact Challenger V6* stripes ...

The rare V6M over FM3 Panther Pink with a V1X top and the V21 hood ...

With the way the girl is pulling her hair back and grinning I think she likes this car ... a lot! "This car is so ME! I can definitely see myself in it. I love it!"




and the even more rare (at least to me) V6J over FJ6 Green Go with a V1W top ...

This combo on a Challenger was very hard for me to find ... if anyone else has any pics of this combo post 'em up here as I (and others?) would like to see them.



Both these cars are sporting Alberta plates ... coincidence? ... or same owner? ... wouldn't that be something if it was?

You don't see many of these, but here is another V1P yellow "mod-top" '70 Cuda.

What seems to be even harder to find is a V1Q blue "mod-top" '70 Cuda. According to the Mod-Top Registry http://www.mooresmopars.com/modtops.html there were only 26 mod-top '70 Cuda's made with only a few of them having the V1Q blue mod-top on them. Have you seen one? Got a pic? Post it here if you do :grinyes:

I love those mod tops.

Somewhere I did have a picture of a blue mod top.  I'll look for it. Hopefully it didn't get lost in the last computer changeover.

No the pink car took over 3 years to redo and I'm still sorting out all the things that weren't done correctly. I haven't heard anything about that 4x white car since it last sold. That was a cool car for sure.

A buddy of mine had the quadruple white sunroof 72 barracuda and sold it to a collector out East.  I forget the guys name, but he collects unusual Mopars.  I believe he has the 70 hemi Charger 500.  I sold the same guy at the same time a 73 Cuda 340 4 speed that was Purple (999) white top, stripe and gut.  Radio delete car.  That would be another striking car restored.

Here's the sunroof 4xwhite car. I've posted it several times before. I'm sure I have pics of the purple car somewhere too.

V3W and V6X on an EF8  BS27H0B
 Yup, the White Top is gone...
There was no top when I got it in 1987 and the truth is I didn't even consider putting a White top on it.
Could be a rare combo, I don't know? I do know I've never seen an EF8 convertible Cuda or Challenger with a white top.
If there are any out there I would love to see a picture. No matter how I try, I just can't picture it with a White Top.   :bigsmile:

 :iagree: Yeah, a white top IS more difficult to picture than a black one ... especially if you have a green interior (do you? or is it black? can't really tell)

She's a beauty alright ... those wheels are really "bright" ... are they the 17" rallyes from Year One??

Thanks!
Black interior and Year One rallyes. They don't look that shiny in person, in this picture they are in direct sunlight on a clear day.
The pictures in my sig are with Mopar 14" rallyes earlier this year.
The car is in the shop getting fresh EF8 paint right now. :bigsmile:
