For a Superbee with the Burnt Orange interior and a bench seat.

Carpet is the Burnt Orange color or black? Seat belts, same question.

Are there medallions on the bench seats for a '70? Also, is the headrest on a '70 bench the formed one with the chrome strip that wraps around it or is it the boxy looking one like on a 68 - 69?


'69 Hemi Charger 500, ‘70 U code Challenger R/T

Hmmmm,...the carpet dilemma, rule of thumb on this subject is: Black if it's a 4spd car, Burnt Orange if an Auto,....but Chrysler was known to skip rules

I agree. I've been following this for years. There is documentation that says the carpet should be the same as the dash color and another document that says it should be black for a 4-speed. It appears that the black for 4-speed is mainly for burnt orange or tan interiors. I've never seen any documentation that relates to why. My 70 RR 4-speed has black carpet. Nothing on the build sheet says why.

Here's your bee!

My 70 console automatic came with black carpet and console according to prior owners into the 1970's. It is a late build (6-70 door sticker) so I'm thinking they may have run out of the orange pieces. It's a Lynch Road car .
