I spotted this 1972 Challenger on Craigslist out of Ohio. It had been listed for about a month. I contacted the seller, and he said that he just sold it. Hopefully the new owner will contact the registry with more details on it. From the ad and pictures, it’s a 340 automatic car, optioned with power disc brakes, road wheels, dual chrome racing mirrors, light package with fender mounted turn signals, center console, and AM radio with cassette. It appears to retain its original HT8 Dark Tan Metallic paint, V7W side stripe, V1W White vinyl top and, its B6XW White and Black interior.
Little by little, they keep coming out of the woodwork! Here is another uber rare – one year only 1972 sunroof Cuda. The owner just purchased this baby a few months ago and plans a fairly faithful restoration. This 340 equipped Cuda originally came in B5 Blue with a blue interior, and a white top and stripe. Loaded with options like power disc brakes, body color racing mirrors, A/C, and bright exhaust tips – this one will be a stunner once its done. Good luck with the restoration and please keep us updated on some of the finish work on this one!
Gentleman in Florida is making some great progress on this 1969 sunroof Charger. This 383/Auto car was originally triple green, so the owner has made a great adjustment to the color combo. Interesting options include the Charger Radio group, which included the AM Radio, Power Steering, Power Brakes, 3-speed Wipers, Deep Dish Wheel Covers, and Remote Drivers Mirror. And last but not least – that essential Florida option – factory A/C.
Just unearthed late last year, a gentleman from California snagged this gem. A true R/T SE 440 six pack 4 speed car. Originally a FC7 Plum Crazy, black top, black interior car too! This car is outfitted with the Track Pak option which put the legendary Dana behind this awesome drive train. Additional interesting options include the Light Package, a Tach, the AM/8-track radio, and a White tail stripe. This car will be a stunner when completed.
That’s right, Lenny has very begrudgingly decided to sell his one owner 1969 Sunroof Charger R/T SE 440 4-speed Dana car. They only produced around 29 R/T SE sunroof Chargers in 1969, and to date – of the 17 known to still exist – this is the ONLY known Super Track Pak car (4 speed, 4.10 Dana Sure Grip) in that bunch. Outfitted in gorgeous A4 Silver with the black tail stripe, this car came equipped with the Light Package, Power Disc Brakes, Center Console, Dual Chrome Mirrors, Tach, Power Windows, AM/8 Track Radio, and the Special Edition (SE) group of goodies – which included the Leather and vinyl front bucket seats, Sport Steering Wheel, Pedal Dress-up Pkg, and Wood Grain Instrument panel. Asking $165K. Serious buyers can give Lenny a call at: 1-973-865-3364 for more details and pictures.
This R/T SE is one of approximately 29 that were shipped to US Dealerships. It also became the 16th sunroof R/T SE known to exist – pretty cool that over half of these cars are still around! The owner is currently getting the engine back in shape and should be on the road again before too long. Another cool note is that this is the only R6 Red 1969 sunroof Charger known.

This gorgeous 1971 Plymouth Fury GT made its debut at the 2017 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals the weekend before Thanksgiving. The owner entrusted Magnum Auto Restorations out of Illinois to bring this one back, and they did an outstanding job. The car was judged and awarded Concourse Gold – an impressive feat given that not a lot of reproduction parts are available for these particular cars. This car is a true gem, as only 13 or so Fury GTs were outfitted with the power sunroof. Here is the car in its un-restored state – Mark and the crew can make miracles happen!

One of Tim’s favorite drivers is this triple black 1971 sunroof Charger. It was part of the Sunroof Invitational at MCACN in 2016, and made it back to Chicago again this year.

The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals will open its doors on Saturday November 18th for thousands of car enthusiasts looking to take in the sites and smells of vintage muscle. Amidst the crowd will be at least a couple of factory sunroof cars. The owner of this car lives in the mid-west and has owned this beauty for many years – although it did not look like this when he purchased it. It was very rough, and required a lot of NOS and reproduction metal to bring it back to life. It was restored in the late 80s/early 90s, and has had one paint retouch in 2005. This 1971 Challenger R/T is equipped with the 383 4 bbl big block, mated to the 727 Torqueflite transmission. Options abound on this car, so much so that the original sticker price was just north of $5600.
There was only 1 sunroof 1970 Chrysler Hurst made – and this is it. After outfitting many mid-sized cars with its signature shifter, Hurst wanted to expand its presence into the larger luxury cars. Hurst grabbed a 1970 Chrysler 300 and quickly went to work on customizing it with several Hurst touches. A custom deck lid was fabricated, the car was painted white with gold accents, dual exhaust tips were installed, and a Hurst shifter was mounted in the center console. When shown to the Chrysler Brass, someone suggested a sunroof be installed also. In the end, the sunroof option would not be available, and the final production model would not carry the 4 speed transmission with the Hurst shifter. If you would like to get a closer look, the owner will have the car at MCACN in Chicago this November. (Photo by Beep Beep Dave of For C-Bodies Only)
