I'm looking at those body colored wheels and wondering if that is factory correct?

Yeah, I hear you. With the "correct" restorations they now seem to be everywhere. They seem odd and I just don't remember seeing any cars with them "back in the day". I suppose they were one of the first things to get tossed for aftermarket wheels and tires back then too.

Speaking of green Challengers, found the Green-Go Chally with the chartreuse stripe from the C-C.com forum header. Here is a more detailed view of that beauty

I don't believe the V6R red stripe was ever available on a 70 Cuda :nono:

Per the original owner, Richard Carpenter, who took delivery the car in April of 1970...

"In early 1970, during the time Karen and I were working on Close To You, I visited Lakewood Center Chrysler/Plymouth and special-ordered this car. I wanted the high-performance Cuda, but with the luxury Barracuda Gran Coupe interior which consisted of a felt-like headliner, an overhead console with three warning lights and an alternate seat cover design with the front buckets finished in leather with vinyl trim, and the salesman stated, correctly, that it could be done. I also ordered power windows, AM/FM 5 speaker stereo, light package, "Elastomeric" front bumper, 440 Six-Barrel and Shaker hood, Rallye instrument cluster, and a number of other fairly rare Barracuda options. As this car was going to be paid for in payments, and my folks were going to co-sign for me, I didnt want to push my luck and order the pricey 426 Hemi. (I really, really did but I didnt.) This engine was close to a thousand dollars extra and almost a quarter of the price of the car. I knew I was fortunate to be allowed to order the car at all, as we barely could afford it, so, no Hemi.

We took delivery of the Cuda on April 10th..."

Without seeing the data plate, I guess we won't know 100%

That and the simple known fact that hockey stick stripes only came in black. :2cents:

This car has been discussed many times before. Hockey stick stripes were Black only as you stated.

My bad.  It was new to me.  When I couldn't find any pics of the data plate, then I started to become a bit suspicious.
