This 426 Hemi Challenger R/T beside the black hood, also has, or doesn’t have any of the regular features.

  1. Writer of the article really needs to do more research. It’s a well-documented fact that some Hemi Challengers shipped with the Challenger T/A hood due to an issue with the “Shaker” hood. So, it was either the car ships with a standard “Rallye” hood, or the buyer got a Challenger T/A hood. This is not a case of the original buyer ordering the car with a hood not intended for the model.

    Rallye Dash was standard with the R/T. As was the woodgrain steering wheel or optional “Rimblow” Steering wheel.

    Lack of radio? Radios were optional. The buyer didn’t have to get one. Also, the mirrors were optional. This car has the standard mirrrors.

    Stripes could be deleted. The buyer could specify “No Stripe” but at no credit to the buyer.

    And lastly, and most heinous….. Hemi cars could not have Air Conditioning.
