Numbers Dudes....was there E body production at the LA plant in 1970, specifically the Barracuda line?, and if so would a 70 440/6 equipped Cuda have either the turn down dual tips, or "standard" thru the rear valance chrome tips?


Thanks
Mike

It depends on the destination of the car not that it was built in LA.

If the car was going to be sold in CA it was coded for noise reduction do it would have no tips.

If an LA built car was destined for Texas it would have tips like any other non-CA sixpack or hemi e-body.

Only certain motor combinations mandated turn downs for cars sold in California in 1970 and 1971. No matter which plant they were built in.

For instance 70 Hemi E-bodies, built in Hamtramk of course, that were sold in California had turn downs as part of thier Noise Reduction package.

I believe for some cars/years the Noise Reduction package was more than just tips?

OK...so if that's the case, what I'm looking to do is a "clone" recreation, but in OEM configuration, the car will be black in color, and I wanted to do a stock OEM undercarriage, but wanted to avoid doing it as a Hamtramck assembled car with a grey undercarriage, and preferred the black primed undercarriage and minimal undercoating....


Thanks guys for the responses

That's correct. There are also some other tid bits that got done different in LA.

I assume you are building a sixpack car. A 440 four barrel E body out of LA would have had tips
