Says "correct color" paint but fender tag says B5 blue with black interior and stripe delete. Would have been better looking than the yellow in my opinion. It is a nice looking car though, and being a 4-speed would be a fun driver... twocents

The "functional" part of it is the holes in the hood with the rubber grommets around them. Blows cold air in the hood in no particular direction. laugh2 I had once seen the prototype plastic tubes that would fit in the oblong openings in the air cleaner and then fit in the grommets, it was almost impossible for a layman to make them work, how do you hold them in place then shut the hood right everytime... tsk

I like the yellow on that car a lot, especially because that fact that it does not have a vinyl roof.
Its too bad that it's not the factory color though.

Neat car. Doesn't really look Y1 on my monitor.

I like it. A lot. I had one that was actually Y1. Wasn't nearly as clean, though.

Good looking car I personally can't get with go-wings on Darts (or 70 B bodies). Demons and Duster body styles lend themselves much better to wings.

I actually only like A-Body wings on 70 340 Swingers with the bumblebee stripe, this one has the stripe applied perfectly and the wing looks like it is growing out of it! up

That's true. I can handle the wing on a Dart, much better than on a 70 B-body.

I don't mind wings on '70 anything, really, except the '70 Charger. I think they look fine on Runners and Bees, and really set off a Duster or Demon or Dart.

I completely agree with the wings comments. The wing on this particular car does not look correctly placed or oriented in proper relation to the rear of the trunk lid.

Either way - to each their own,,,

With the color change and the other items, what would be a reasonable price? I suspect around $20K being a 4 spd car.
