This is my 1969 Coronet 440 (6 pass wagon). This is the original engine, dirty but other than minor external wear items it's original. Block is not stamped HP but otherwise looks just like an HP engine with the same heads, intake, exhaust manifolds, even an 054 radiator!.

Technically the 383HP wasn't available in the '69 Coronet 500.

... so besides a "HP" stamp, what evidence do you have to support that claim?

B'cast sheet and or Lynch Rd. fender tag numbers?




Dan, I'm not sure what you mean by 'technically', but a 383 four speed 500 would have the HP assembly.

I agree you'd need tag or BS proof for an A/C car to have the HP assembly.




I should've made the statement stand on its own ... it was a response to "copchaser's" claim.

The 383HP (335hp) wasn't available in the '69 Coronet 500 with an automatic and/or A/C.

My bee has the 054 radiator as well. Came with the A 35 trailer tow package. I also have the " 383 four barrel " pie tin instead of the Magnum but have the un silenced air cleaner which the original owner said came factory on it. Also the black breather cap not chrome.

Mines exactly the same (black Oil Cap, "383 Four Barrel" tin. The duel snorkel) AC may have been a California deal, part of some lame noise reduction attempt? Tough to say but my car was an LA build car so it makes sense.

Scott -
Yup, dual snorkel was part of the Noise Reduction Pkg as far as I can tell. Was on my '70 383 4bbl Satellite (not orange) motor. Supposedly the chrome tips were N/A as part of that same pkg; legend has it that no CA cars had tips, but the 1st '68 Hemi RR in L.A. (which a high-school friend had - nice parents, huh?!) had them. Neither of my '68 383 RRs came with tips, one L.A.-built, one St.Louis and originally delivered to Denver.

Even non-California '68 383 Road Runner's did NOT get the tips. The tips were only available on the Hemi RR for some reason......I haven't found any info that said they were available on the late '68 RR RM23's with the decor option but I'm going to put them on my '68 RR (RM23) because they make the car sound soooooo much better.....

I was under the impression that the Chrome Tips came on all 69 RR's equiped with the A-87 Decor Group, except those built for (not in) California. All cars built for California came with the turn down pipes. Additionally all cars built for California came with the unsilenced Duel Snorkel Air Cleaner.

This is true for the '69 RR (except I think you meant "Silenced" Duel Snorkel?) but the '68 383 RR did Not get the chrome tips in any State, just the Hemi engined RR got the tips.

Yes and they all used H as the VIN code. That's what causes confusion.

All A, B, & C body 383-4bbls code the same way.

Many sources cite the 'H' as the HP code when in fact the car may not have the HP assembly.

The only way to tell which assembly the car recieved is via the BS or a Lynch Road fender tag.

I keep seeing the No tips in California posted...I know it's true of a very few models like 70 440-6 equipt E bodies...But for the most part Mopar Muscle here in California back in the late sixties & early seventies got tips... My 68 Coronet R/T originally sold in Fremont had tips...My 69 Roadrunner A87 Coupe sold in Turlock had tips...My 70 Challenger R/T S.E. sold in Patterson...Tips...

I think the dual snorkel was probably because it's not a Road Runner or Super Bee but this brings up another question. I think all the high performance B-bodies and A-bodies came with a chrome oil breather? It was the only dress up in the engine compartment. Maybe yours is black because it's a 330 horse SW? Now I wonder if the 330 horse 383 Super Bees, RoadRunner's and Charger R/T's with air had a black oil cap? My 340S Barracuda with air has a black cap but I don't know if it's the original but it's a very unmolested car? I'm going to put a chrome one on it.

The RR/GTX/RT/SB motors were supposed to get chrome caps according to factory literature, but some came through with black. Non-performance motors were supposed to get the standard black caps. The dual-snorkel air cleaner would be Noise Reduction Package performance motors from what I can tell on original cars (with the 330-horse 383s and 350-horse 440s apparently getting them too). The small unsilenced air cleaner was the "performance" unit otherwise. My '69 RR A/C car had the dual snorkel type but my non-A/C RRs had the small one; these were original unmolested cars. All my RRs & R/Ts had chrome oil caps, even that A/C car, which had the 330 motor. My '70 383 4bbl Satellite had a black cap.
I'm sure there were occasional exceptions to the air cleaner & filler cap "rules".

I have never seen an origional 69-70 road runner engine that was not an HP, and orange.

I have seen several origional 69 and 70 a/c automatic road runners with orange HP engines,
and even have a late 69' 383 a/c auto block in my garage that is an HP and has origional orange paint.

Because of this, I think you would be safe to paint it orange and use the HP block, but I am not an expert.

According to this website, the engine code on your fender tag should show you which engine you should have in the car.

The "E63" code would be the 330 horse version.
The "E65" code would be the 335 HP.

http://www.stockmopar.com/how-to-decode-a-1969-1974-fender-tag-part-1.html

Mine is a 69' road runner with auto and a/c and is an E63, making the case for the blue engine.
(Origional is missing)

The list of "E" codes on that site are almost humorous.

I believe E65 is used for all 383 4bbl in '71 only, 383HP was 300hp NET.

Yeah, you are correct.
This website shows that all 383 RR engines in 69' would have been E63, either variety.

http://www.genocide2600.com/~traviso/mml/bodydecode.html#e

The "Charger Road Runner & Super Bee Restoration Guide" by Paul Herd (1994) shows E62 as the regular 383 4bl for 1969, but does not list the E63 in the appendix.

I'm not saying that this book is the mopar holy gail, but it is one of the most comprehensive of the very few B-body restoration books available, and has had an influence on most factory restorations completed since its publishing.

The book also says on page 23,

"A few 383/335hp V-8's were painted turquoise when equipped with air conditioning."

Again on page 29,

"Note that some 1969 and 1970 383s in
air-conditioned Super Bees and Road Runners were painted Turquoise."

On page 40 (picture caption)

"Cars sold in California in 1969 used a dual snorkel air cleaner with the high performance 383ci and 440ci powerplants."

None that I've had any part in. Was warned against it many moons ago & if your examples are proof of how good it is, then the warning was well deserved.

If you have been following this thread, you can see that the 383HP/335hp engine with A/C is mythical. Please provide proof that this combo existed in '68 and/or '69.

1969 - all SB and RR with A/C were turquois & 1970 - all SB and RR with A/C were orange.
(exceptions would be "factory mistakes" & not the norm, proof would be the responsibility of the owner/restorer)

Poor choice of wording or taken out of context.
All '70 model year b-bodies w/single 4bbl carb. w/o a fresh air hood (N96) sold in California during Sept. - Dec '69 had a dual snorkel air cleaner.

The RR in the link you posted is not an unrestored car; many of the nuts and bolts and wire harness clamps have body color paint on them , the throttle cable clamp almost looks turquois or silver and not engine orange? The washer bottle is not original, no engine paint on the battery ground cable............

Like Doug said; a Lynch road fender tag or a broadcast sheet showing the A/C option and the 335hp motor. That's the ONLY way to provide proof.

No disrespect intended, but here's a friendly pce of wisdom to a Moparts newbie that it took me 5000 posts to learn: Doug, Dan and Mike know what they are talking about.....trust me.

This is my 69 SE 383/330 Charger with A/C. No HP stamping. This is a #'s car and has been in the same family for 20 years prior to me buying it. The air cleaner is also original with a red "383-4 barrel" pie tin.

No disrespect intended, I tried to inject enough Graemlins to lighten the spirit of my reply to your post. Nothing personal.

It was/is more a "disrespect" of the "RESTORATION GUIDE".
I am envious of Mr. Herds abilities/time/connections to complete a book project & get it published, not impressed by the accuracy of the book.
& alot has changed as far as perceived "correctness" since 1994.

James, many people new to the hobby rely on Herd's restoration book. After time, you come to realize how many mistakes are in the book. It would be more of a service to the hobby if the publishers stopped printing the book and prevent more confusion.

One advantage message boards have over books is the collective information from lots of people and their ability to post supporting documentation. Books don't have the ability to offer the volumes of documentation that a message board can.

The engine color, tranny and A/C question comes up often. Here are two threads that were productive:

What happen to all the people that worked at the engine assembly plants? Has anyone ever talked to someone who worked the engine line?

It would be nice to know the assembly process of when the A/C units met up with the engine and how they new that turquise motors got the A/C and orange motors didn't., etc,.

We hear from assembly line workers, but I've never seen any conversation of the engine facility workers. Where are you all hiding?

I thought that was what the broadcast sheets were used for. Where are they? A good many are probably dead by now.

Ouch!!!!
Thanks Dave,
You just made me re-realize the facts of life. When you get old....your gonna die.

I didn't work in the auto industry, but I was old enough to in '68.

Glad to still be here.

I'm sure there were plenty of 20 somethings working the lines in 69-70, etc. That would make them late 50-early 60's. They ain't all dead.

I've talked to a few line workers that are in the hobby. Just never any engine people.
