    Hey guys, I finally found one Im going to keep and restore for myself. Its a 71 hemi orange charger SE N code and I am looking for some info on trim details. Ive got accent stripe code V7X which I know is a black accent stripe going down the side but I wasnt sure if it was the wide one that wraps around the cowl and down both sides or the thin almost pinstripe one that snakes down the sides only from upper front of the fender to the upper rear quarter. Any insight would be appreciated as I have a solid amount of knowledge on these cars but am ignorant to some of these details.

      I got it in a package deal and made my money back on the other car so I am in it for a song right now. Its just a rolling shell with the dash butt its a ultra straight Texas body and happen to have a 71 383 I was building for my 65 Sport Fury that came from a 71 2bbl charger so at least its correct-ish and I have a ton of the hard to find parts like 71 HP manifolds and some cool period correct day 2 stuff like an Eddy DP4B with the Chrysler hustler part number cast into it so I am more excited then I have been in years to dig in and start bringing her back to her glory days. Im not looking to do a concours resto on her but Id like to know exactly what she came with and Im sure I am in the right place to find out.

          the wrap around stripes are 71 R/T / super bee only. yours would have been a longitudinal pinstripe.
          I imagine there weren't very many hemi orange SE's built. too bad there isn't a way to know how many. looks like a great project.

          Thanks and yea I wish I could get production numbers too its a real hemi orange N code 383 mag HD727 slap stick 2 fender tag car with some good options. Rally gauges and the cloth insert buckets and the V4X half vinyl top in black. Itll look awsome when its done. It was stripped and painted 15 or 20 years ago and sat on that trailer in a field so the clear on top is gone baked off but she didnt see michigan roads so it never got real rusty just a few spot here and there that need patched.

          Thanks for the stripe info. Thats what I was leaning toward it being and thats fine with me. It will look great with that long pinstripe too. Im just starting to acquire the parts I need to put her back together because it didnt come with much other than what you see in the pics but for the money I cant complain.

          Thanks and yea I think so too. I wasnt planning on keeping it but every time I looked at it I wanted it more and more and imagining it done and how nice it will be I couldnt resist. I need to find a lot of parts but Ive already found a 72 Rallye Charger a guy let me strip a lot of parts from so I got a lot of what is the same from 71 to 72 and a great start on parts round up. Im sure I will be able to source the rest of what I need for it between finding other parts cars around here and on this site. Ill be listing a few things from the 72 I got in the package deal I made but dont need also so Ill probably try to do some trading on here once Ive got everything sorted.

          Welcome! My car has V4X stripes and its a single 1/4" wide pin stripe that wraps around the hood back and across the roof. Built on 901. Not sure if they changed it after that.
