Anyone know the correct color black for OE shaker hood scoop.
I need to redo mine.
I chipped it.
Also should I use Bondo or fiberglass on top?

Has anyone ever seen a shaker done in Argent Silver or was they only done in black?

Black ?
to the best of my knowledge, they were all argent silver,
unless its a 71 then I think some/all were dark argent silver

My 9/70 SPD Challenger came with an organasol black scoop. My 5/71 SPD Challenger came with a dark argent scoop.

The rule, not set in stone was 70 Argent and 71 Black.
But like I said it is not 100% that way

Mom & Dad let me buy a brand new 70 Challenger R/T 440 Six-Pack Super Trac Pack when I was 17 (Robert what is a 440 Six-Pack)

So it's safe to say, Argent silver on a 70 challenger shaker iscorrect?
I've never seen silver on a Challenge before.

My 71 that came with the argent scoop is a non-R/T 340 car. The argent scoop goes well with argent grille and tail panel. Not sure if that was a happy accident or planned that way by Chrysler. Pic dates to 1979-80.

Weird just searched and the last 5 challengers in 1970 have semi gloss black shakers.
I've never seen a argent shaker on a challenger before.

Has anyone ever seen a argent shaker on a 70 challenger?

Are you sure you are looking at "real" shaker Challengers? Shaker Challengers are very rare. It's very popular to add the shaker hood to these cars.

Yes, I saw a shaker scoop in argent on a 1970 Challenger convertible 440-6 that was plum crazy body color. It was original.

The vast majority of 70s would have an argent bubble. Only the late cars would have black. My car has an SPD of 723 so I'm going to go with black. My original bubble got painted body color - FK5 Burnt Orange

My build date is 723 also.
So what to do?
I have the light argent paint now.
And I dont know how to match this black paint.
Looks like semi gloss black. 20% flattening agent.

723 is a very common SPD for shaker Challengers

Is 723 considered a late production date?

Late build shaker would it be black organisol?
I'm ready to repaint today.
I have both argent silver and black organisol.
