My buddy Jeremy and I made the 9 hour trek out to Farmington Minnesota for Midwest Mopars this year. I had made it out the previous year with the family, and was impressed with the show. Unfortunately, rain put a damper on the car turn out on Saturday, but Sunday looked better. However, Jeremy and I had to truck back to western South Dakota early on Sunday. Regardless, I was pleased to see a couple of factory sunroof cars, and got to talk to the owners of the 1970 Challenger. I was not able to catch the owner of the Triple Black 1974 Charger. Between seeing these cars, catching a Twins game, devouring a helmet nacho, and scoring some great parts at the swap meet, I would consider it a successful adventure.
Believed to be a one off promo car for the 1973 model year, this Polara Sundance edition C-body sports an ASC sunroof! According to factory documentation, the power sunroof option was not supposed to be available on the 1973 Polaras and Monacos – but this one has one! It is speculated that this car, along with two other promo cars (Chrysler Mariner and Plymouth Aspen) were toured or made appearances at auto events in 1972-73. The owner has decided he is going to offer this one up for sale at 5K. Owner contact info:
Many more pics and much more detail on this car can be found over at the For C Bodies Only website:
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.
