The red/red rolling bordello described above???

Not so much...


It looks good.


But I call the 3 color rule. It's got white black and red on the outside. 3 is one too many colors seen on the outside.

IMHO, would look better with white top and white or red interior.

That was me.

I noticed that the tire code started with a U which means 15" tires. That lead me to look at the wheel code of W21 which is the rallye wheel

I TWICE had the opportunity to buy a red on red Hemi Challenger 4 speed that was stripe delete and a red 450 wheel car. Man that was a lot of red.

Got it. Thanks. Bummer that the 15x7 rallyes are long gone. Gent said he had the car for 10 year, and the road wheels were on the car when he bought it.
Anyone got a good set of 390s that they want to part with?

Go to Carlisle. I have seen complete 15x7 wheels and tires sold at OK prices.

Mod tops have one pattern over the entire top.

I don't think multiple color are horrible. Just when top and stripe match it's more visually pleasing.

V21 challenger with black hood and white stripe just don't flow as well. White and black are considered neutral. But you don't often see a cream painted car with red painted top and green stripe.

The factory suggested color combinations set by the factory stylists take in account 1) interior and 2) exterior colors for 3) stripe choices. It also considers 3 colors for 2-tone combinations making sure at the very least one exterior color matches the interior color.
