Those 3rd gen wing cars just look so much more at home in that guise than the 2nd gens.  I still think that in many ways the 71 represents the pinnacle of Charger development and had they introduced it in 69, it would be the car we all lust after.  Dodge always arrived a little late to the party but better dressed.

Really?  If they had trumped GM for a change instead of following their lead and had the 71 out before the end of the musclecar era, do you think it might just be possible for it to have sold in greater numbers than it did?  If it had, is not unreasonable to think the Dukes would have had one and everyone would be nutty about it?  I don't think it's such a stretch myself.

not crazy about 3rd gens. i like them and respect the machine. but i dig the 2nd gen  body shape, 1969 was a rebellious yr and the 71 charger always looked like my dads charger. i think 2nd gens look more bad ass. just my 2 cents. Rene

Well, don't read too much into my post.  I'm bragging up 3rd gens and I'm driving a 1st gen but my heart lies with the 69 as well.  It was my first automotive love a very long time ago and it will be my last.  My opinion was formed many years before the Dukes drove one.  I'm just currently between 69's.
My point was more a "what if" history theory.
I do think they look slicker as wing cars than the 69's though.

Dave, my conjecture, and it's just that based on circumstantial evidence is that the Watermellon Charger started out as a FJ5 (Sublime) 1970 Charger R/T, white top/white interior, and being a 70, the front end was an easy conversion, I would think that being built in late 69 that perhaps the Daytona added parts were painted FJ5 to match the rest of the car.....now perhaps the car suffered an identity crisis with the newly released Superbirds in the same FJ5?....
The car did some time on the ISCA show circuit in late 69 early 70....I venture the F6 was added over the FJ5, so I would tend to think only the inside portion of the wing uprights and the horizontal would display F6?....just conjecture, we may never know?......but an interesting find your friend has there, perhaps he's best to wetsand the black off, if he's inclined to study what's underneath?

I wish I had taken the time and patience to carefully sand all the layers of paint off my wing, maybe we could have figured out which Nascar it came off of in 69

If anyone is going to investigate, I think the question to ask is WHO did your friend get the wing from, and WHERE ?  Are there more parts or possibly a car??

Joe,...the photo that was eventually made into a wall poster by the Chrysler photo studios was shot in Chrysler's Hamtramck rear holding yard, often where vehicles that were pulled off the line for "special" purposes were held, be it dealer specials, execs cars, promos, etc
