My parents bought new and still have a 1970 Charger not an SE just a standard Charger with a 383 Magnum 335 hp with a Holley an automatic and AC. The engine was and is orange. The chrome valve covers were added around 1974. the only thing you can see in this picture is the orange throttle cable bracket but the engine is orange.

As stated in my last post, the SE on a Charger is not part of the Model it is just an option package. The Challenger it was a seperate model.

Calm done there skippy I wasn't questioning your expertise. I am aware that the Challenger SE is a seperate model and Charger SE is a package option. I was just stating what my parents car is and isn't.

Oh, I'm calm.:D

Has nothing to do with expertise. The reason I posted that is because the SE has nothing to do with the 383 h.p. rating on a CHARGER SE but it can on a Challenger SE or R/TSE. I guess I should have been more clear.

i asked a similar question a while ago-it`s a numbers r/t challenger 383 4 speed n code with no air and it is an la built car. under the orange paint is blue paint and i wondered why the blue paint is there. i believe the engine should be orange but until we strip the engine one day i won`t know for sure. it`s a great running car so it won`t be any time soon.
you can see in the pic of the vin pad the blue is there-was it rebuilt and painted blue earlier in it`s life-most probably-it just seems strange someone would do that.
all the best
frank.

My Challenger in 1995, yes it was 25 years old at that point but it had been in a barn for 18 years... It had been beat but it hadn't been apart...
