That is correct Bendix for Disc and Hemi.  I have one already resleeved in stainless if your going to need it too.  Mine was a previous restore so no Vacuum lines.  May need to start looking for that, for the OEM look.

Keep in mind that the few early press cars were probably hand assembled on a pilot line and not Creative sourced.

Parts may not be "production level" either, compared to later builds.
Remember the few 1972 440 Sixpack B Bodies that were made, but weren't supposed to exist!!  

The Kelsey Hayes Cast Road Wheels were officially recalled on Sept. 13th., 1968.
https://www.hemmings.com/blog/article/total-recall/
Cars built after August 28th., would not have them, even if coded.  

Lastly, magazine lead times were months before the cover dates.
Example:  Baker's March 24th. 200 run in the Engineering Daytona appeared in the August dated issue of Stock Car Racing magazine.

Wow Troy, great score on owning this particular 500. I love the Bud Lindemann road test video, to own the car tested in it is the ultimate!  drool5 cheers 2thumbs

here's the engine compartment pic of the HOT ROD test HEMI automatic Charger 500

notice power steering pump & master cylinder

it would make sense that there were East Coast & West Coast "press test vehicles"

& if someone had a connection at HOT ROD, I'd bet that fender tag is readable on the source - was this photo published in MCR, does anyone know the issue?

I've written Hot Rod today to try and get information... I can't see what you're referring to about the power steering pump.. I do see there are some adaptors on the master cylinder the brake lines are going into... mmmmm? I don't recall those...

This one is an auto and I also notice it doesn't have the big body plug in the firewall between the bulkhead connector and the wiper motor...

I also notice the placement of the Emissions decal, in the normally position spot of the '68 model year. My '68 Hemi Charger R/T had it over there by the washer bottle. For the most part, the 1969 model year had the Emissions decal next to the data tag..  Also noticed that on #1 from the pictures it is missing the Emissions decal all together..

Na... 1. I don't particularly like them. 2. The car never left Creative with them. So I see no "for correctness" need to. Plus, they are expensive. They are supposedly being made, but I thought they were in a state of back-order.

Troy,
I have the 2 adapters for the master cylinder brake lines that are shown in the magazine photo. I removed them off a 69 hemi m/c several years ago. PM if you want them.

I like the Polara wheel covers it has, and had in the Bud video. Do they look like they will clean up well? I have a set on mine, and they look great.

I haven't inspected them thoroughly yet. May but those that Ralph has.
You have a picture you could share? Would like to see what others look like. There is one road test picture with a 500 with black steelies and hub caps (doggies).

Quote from article:

Kelly’s test car was a Hemi-powered 500. Well, actually, he tested two. The first one, with a four-speed transmission, “was ‘borrowed’ (by person or persons as yet not convicted) and most of the parts liberated. Due to this unexpected car loan (that’s not what the police termed it), we spent most of our time with the automatic car.”

Origin of DC-93. (#88)

Thanks Dave...

Noticed something about this car that mine doesn't have, the six-way driver's seat. So, this leads me to know that is auto isn't mine, eliminating it from a possible Bud Lindemann video car and closer to mine. Does anyone know where that drag was at? California or the East Coast somewhere?
