Not for the late sixties! smile Probably doing like the Mustang and keeping identifying features of the models prior.

I dunno, the first thing I thought of when I saw that 'fugly' grill was this:



Kinda like they were trying to retain the vibe of the earlier model(s).

What caught my eye just as much, if not more so, were the vent windows on the doors.

Cool stuff! Thanks for sharing Cody!

It looks to me like they were trying to carry over the 69 A body Cuda grilles to the 70 model. I sure glad they didnn't go that route!

Is that a formula s emblem in that grille?

Also happy to see the vent windows didn't happen either.

I always thought the e-brake would be a good fit. I am surprised more resto mods don't use that space for the e-brake.

I wouldn't say "fugly"...but it definitely looks awkward on that car. That grille would have looked a lot better on a Duster.

These are super cool. I was lucky when I acquired these and I have the original drawings and Studio shots inside the Highland Park Design center. Plus a lot never seen before when I bought Bill Brownlie's collection and memoirs from his estate and daughter. Bill was ahead of Dodge and head of the Advanced Studio Design for Chrysler. I have 8 picture books of original Chrysler pics and drawings. Three original paintings of the Yellow Jacket/Diamante' and The 1968 Charger Bill Brownlie wanted to build and was turned down and the Charger we know now was a last minute car. Plus Bill's personal pics of building the Yellow jacket/ Diamante'. Plus all the history of it and Paperwork. I love going thru this stuff from time to time. It is cool to see how the cars we know and love came about. A piece of automotive design and an era long gone.

I suspect we are really seeing the "tree", instead of the "forest". They needed a grille, and with limited time/budget, that worked for the moment, as a quick fix, maybe the "grille" team was on vacation, or maybe even as just an inside joke. I can see past it. twocents
