    Was doing some work at the local Chrysler dealership last week and this Challenger really caught my eye. First one I have seen in this color and with these decals. I kinda like it.

      Did you get the name of the color . . . it looks like what I've seen called "Black Cherry" . . . very nice looking color ( IMO ) . . .

        Almost looks like that paintable chrome process, available in chrome or "tinted colors" of chrome, like this:

        No, there wasn't a window sticker in the car and I was in a rush at the time.

        I remember that color. Friend of mine’s dad had an 80’s Daytona in black cherry. Black until the sun hit it.

              I saw one of the F8 T/A’s at the Muscle Car Nationals in Rosemont, in Nov. it was a really great color.

                Actually, the first car you posted is the “TA“ model.

                Let me rephrase: 392 or 707?

                The first car, according to the badging, is a t/a 392- 485 hp, 475 ft-lbs of torque.
                I’ve got one. It’s a real beast...

                The second red one is a scat pack shaker 392- same engine/specs, but quite different performance- wise.

                If you go to the dealer's website, you can find the car & look up the window sticker, copy it & post it here.

                    This is my friend's T/A Challenger. I don't remember the name of the color.
