The “poor man” ‘70 Charger R/T had the high back buckets, the Pistol Grip 4 speed, and V code 440 Six Pack options that were only available that year. As well as most of the Hi Impact color palette.68-69 Chargers have gone INSANE and 70's are close behind. I feel like the 68-69 are both the new 70 cuda just a personal decision on the grille and tail lights and the 70 is the poor mans 68-69 Charger but close behind. And when I say poor mans its more like working mans because they aren't really cheap either. I am thankful that my buddies wife and kids wanted their fathers/husbands car treated well and taken care of and not flipped. They sold me his car for a steal and I would never be able to touch a 68 4 speed car without that deal happening.

Also rare but would be “correct” for a ‘70 is the body color sport mirrors as seen on this one.View attachment 1409732View attachment 1409733
I don't see anyone complaining, it's commentary nothing more.... If I felt it were worth the current prices I (and I suspect allot of other members commenting in this thread) could go pay cash for a 68 Hemi 4 speed Charger today.. Don't confuse cost with value... It's still just an old Mopar... A cool one for sure, but not worth the current prices...Guess I am more happy that the prices are steady going up than if they were steady going down
Second gen Chargers seem to be at the top of the pile for now
Just not sure why all the complainers think they should be entitled to one if they can not afford it
Buy something else and work on it to make it worth more and sell it and keep moving up till you can start on a Charger
What about the 1971 Charger R/T and Super Bee with its around 7500 beeing built and the equivalent Roadrunners with the "fuselage" or Coke bottle body style (First year of only two with the same sleek look).I think movies/tv was only part of the equation. Some production numbers found in a quick search, hopefully close to being accurate. Side note, I like 66-67 Chargers as well.
Interesting thought, but I for one would NEVER pick a 68 Plymouth over a 68 Charger. I personally feel there is nothing more beautifully created than the 68-69 Chargers.... well, perhaps Farrah Fawcett, but were talking cars hereI always thought 68-69 chargers were the cream of the crop. I was attracted to the body and looks. At 30k for a project car with eathier a decent body no motor or running and rusted beyond repair its insane. Lately I find them less attractive and am quite content with my 68 satellite gtx clone. I often wonder if money was taken out of the equation and movies and TV shows never portrayed the 2nd gen charges as they did would I then pick the same b body as my favorite. Would I pick a 68 plymouth over a 68 charger?
Dam I guess you think the 70 charger just sucksInteresting thought, but I for one would NEVER pick a 68 Plymouth over a 68 Charger. I personally feel there is nothing more beautifully created than the 68-69 Chargers.... well, perhaps Farrah Fawcett, but were talking cars here
Greg All I see is cartoons ? dc.com? DC.com - The Official Home of DCAs much as I love mine, I would not pay what people are asking for these cars nowadays. I'd buy a Road Runner or Coronet and have just as much fun it it. I love A bodies too but the B is a bit more manly in my opinion.
There is a guy asking $155,000 for a '69 Charger restomod at DC.com
To me, that is obscene. It is a clean car but ........
