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

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.

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?

Are the black shakers painted organisol black or just semi gloss black?

Re: Correct black for 1970 Challenger shaker scoop - 08/23/19 12:50 PM

My late May build 71/R/T has black organisol , so the {Floyd }May build non R/T could of came with argent {as he suggests } to match grill and tail panel at that time.

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

Re: Correct black for 1970 Challenger shaker scoop - 08/23/19 01:49 PM

All late builds { and 7/23 is late }I have seen and the 3 at I have had were all black organisol. The texture certainly varied with; roughness of original application, age , use/ wear and repaints ..... but certainly a textured . I assumed we were talking 1971 year dates Not 70 ) in 70 argent correct

For the record, the argent silver looks 20xs better than the black on my 70 Challenger.
