A little bit of a myth on that one. Several examples of A/C cars with 4spds [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img] [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif[/img] Several in the 69 Charger Registry, and my good friend owns a 69 Bee, 383-4spd car with factory A/C.

If what you meant was no R/Ts with A/C and a 4spd, then yes since all R/Ts came with 440s. But then again, I think there is a Y39 special order car that came with it. But as a rule, no 440-4spd cars, just 383-4spd cars. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img] Welcome to Mopars and all the crazy crap associated with them!!

Cheers

You could get a 1970 Charger R/T with a 440, 4-speed and A/C, as well as a U-code 440 Cuda or Challenger R/T.

No, no myth at all:



I felt the context of the conversation made it clear I was talking about the Charger R/T. :twocents:

No, you didn't make it clear with the statement &quot; no AC with 4 speeds&quot;. At least that's not how interpreted it. See, my brain can't process implied thoughts. I can't think that deep! [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif[/img] Now, if you said &quot;no A/C with Charger R/Ts with 4 speeds&quot;. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif[/img] then my pea brain would have understood Big difference! My misunderstanding, sorry about that.

But that chart isn't correct you posted either. Plenty of 383-2bbl Chargers out there with AC. I owned one. Here's the tag.....
69...383-2bbl, G-Code. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif[/img]
Unless that means 383-2bbl 4 SPD cars, and in that case, I haven't come across any 383-2bbl 4spd cars, much less ones with A/C. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/dunno.gif[/img] And I believe the reason for that, no 383-2bbl 4spd cars that is, is that the 2bbl exhaust manifolds do not clear the Z-Bar for the clutch linkage. I know this because I converted that car to a 4spd and had to add HP exhaust manifolds. That 2bbl log dumped right where the Z-Bar mounted.

Cheers [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/beers.gif[/img]

Nah, it's all good.

Anyway, I believe the item I posted was a pre-production piece because, after 1968, Chrysler stopped offering a 4-speed behind the 383-2.

Here are some pics after the car was soda blasted. A few spot areas will be sand blasted but nothing major. The ole' girl was backed into or something similar based on the bondo on the left rear quarter. I knew it was there so no surprise there. Also knew of the front right fender above the bumper getting tapped. The only real surprise is that the front left fender had been replaced. Apparently back in the day best I can tell it is a Chrysler piece. Also there are a few pin holes in the corners of the lower valance, but thankfully nothing major. The trunk pan is questionable. Just the center section needs to be possibly replaced. I will let Ronnie the painter let me know his thoughts.

I want to try and save the original headliner. Maybe a mistake?? That is the reason the Charger emblems are still on the sail panel. The painter was going to remove the bottom of the headliner and then remove the emblems. We will see, maybe just install a new headliner?
