Well, when Galen had a column in Mopar Muscle in the 1990s, he had a column about FM3 and listed production numbers. He said there was only 1 Gran Coupe convertible painted in FM3 (for US-spec cars) and he had seen the car, which was a 318 4-speed.

But Trust me, no way is that car staying with that combo <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/runaway.gif" alt="" />


AFAIK: there are NO red e-body interior components after 1970 <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> Got Pics?

The red in a 73 also has me puzzled

I've got an odd color combo on my 1970 Challenger. Supposedly "not recommended" by Chrysler. Sublime body with a Ledger Green stripe (white top fwiw). I don't recall if there was a V08 on the tag. I'll check.


Trying to enjoy life!

MMC Detroit: 1969 Dodge Dart GT LP23 P9B 154554

Good morning Sam,
Thank you for thinking of us.  The only objective information that we have is for domestic consumption very high level (trim level, year , engine and transmission).   You have a very unique car being a two tome (X9/R6 = V02).  The high level production estimate for domestic consumption is ~2,623.   Based on the GT and V02 code our best estimation is that there is most likely less that ~50 produced with X9/R6. However, we have no objective information to base that on other than experience.

Unfortunately, there is no other official information that is endorsed by Chrysler that has been released to the public.  If we find any additional information we will reach back out to you.

Have a great day.

Been there done it. In a lot of automotive plants the sub assembly lines are not near the main line and a drag chain or a conveyor would take the parts to the main line from the subassembly line and an operator would transfer then to the vehicle. The worker that loads the interior into the vehicle would just look to see if the Numbers matched between the parts and the Vehicle. The way personal changed in the plants in 1970 and how rare a V08 is on any built no one would know or care what V08 on the line is.

The thing someone might do is circle the V08 but I bet the line worker would just look at the interior color code and built the seats.


My 71 Barracuda Gran Coupe is an "available but not recommended" car. I have no broadcast sheet for it but I do have the original fender tag. BP23N1B with FE5 and brown leather interior. Fairly well optioned car with console mounted cassette deck and rear window louvers. Maybe the V08 is a 1970 only code?

Another "weird" car that is somewhat widely known about is a 1970 Challenger R/T 440+4 car that is either BL1 or DY3 with a V1W vinyl roof and red interior. It is a super rare shaker car. I think some of the cars we consider among the "available but not recommended" colours are actually cars ordered by colour blind people. They see a lot of colours differently that we do, so what looks crazy to us, actually looks completely normal to them.

Shouldn't the plastic center speaker grill and the 2 outboard metal grills be red, the same as the dash pad?

I'd love the color combination if it didn't have a vinyl top. I think the white adds one too many color elements. That was my impression when I saw it at the show. Plus I am not a fan of vinyl tops.
