Found this car locally. Back in the 80's Car Craft magazine use to do a show called the Car Craft Street Machine Nationals that I was always at. This car was at several of them through out the years in the Sacramento CA area. Kind of funny when it comes to all mods the guy did to the car. My plans are to just return the car back to how it was originally. Nice original sheet metal. There is no rust at all even the original vinyl top is super nice. Original drive train and a color combination that I really like, red on red with the white vinyl top and white bumble bee stripe.

Gutted, the guy had added a T/A box that I discovered when I was cutting the headers out.

Yes Barry, Chris is correct. It's a Los Angeles built car. The A codes on the tag are A63, A66 and A91. What's your guess as to how many of these are out there?

There is no way to know that for sure, but I do try to keep track of them as they surface.

A bit out of date now, but some information here at http://board.moparts.org/ubbthreads/ubbt...hallengers.html

Thanks for the info Barry. The car is also codded for a white bumble bee stripe, V9W. Do you think that it would have gotten the WSS decals on the car also?

So Eric this is a Challenger 340 Western Sport Special Deputy?

What kind of plugs are in the rear interior panels?

I couldn't remember if Deputy was A91 or A93. After I posted I started to think it was A93 so thanks for the correction.
