Hello, Hello.  Just payed for (but don't have) a 69 RT SE. I'm one of those sick puppies that likes everything back to original state.  It does not have the SE vinyl top.  I need the outside stainless trim pieces on the rear fender top.  Anyone have a set or know if there are many "out there" Undecided  Many Thanks, Rob.

Thanks for the trim "keepat" that should do it.

Rob,
Good to see you have your Charger! If you are talking about the check molding for the vinyl top? I have a set from car or you can get them new re pro, not sure of the fit?

Rob, Just because its an SE doesn't mean it had a vinyl top. Check the fender tag for the vinyl top code.

It has the black vinyl top code, and my understanding was that wood grain dash and vinyl top were part of the SE package?

Nope.  The vinyl top was still optional with the SE package & not part of it.

If the holes aren't there, then think twice about adding these things back onto the car. 

The factory's mounting holes were a great source of water getting into the trunk area & starting the rusting process.

I would check the data plate first. It will tell you if it came with a vinyl top.

Thanks but problem is the tag is a repro.  Some items are on there, some not.  It says Black Vinyl top, but the only way to know for sure is the trim holes unless I find a build sheet and since the rugs seats and headliner were replaced, I don't think I'll find it.  Thanks.

Have you looked inside the trunk  area to see if the holes have been welded shut? I personally think the Charger looks awesome. I too am an OEM guy, but all that orange and black interior looks great..... Like Chris said, vinyl tops were not standard, even on SE's.......

Just got the car and I'm not sure how I feel.  I'm going to force myself to keep it until spring and then make a decision. If I can get back the 29,500.00 I paid, I may bail before putting to much in it.  I looked and yes it did have a vinyl top.  Thanks.

Keep me in mind, if I sell my '68, I may be interested..  Grin  Love the color with the magnums.. Is it an a/c car?

  why are you thinking on bailing? is the car not as nice as you hoped or is it just the options not matching the codes or?

Thats why I need to chill.  My wife said the same thing.  I'm real anal for detail, and one of my favorite things on the Charger is the grille.  Well, its been sprayed black.  I'm sure after I clean it up and detail it, that will make a big difference.  Thanks for your support.

True, but without a real fender tag, how do you know it was even an SE to begin with? Personally, I would never touch a car without a real tag unless I was doing a modified car. That car was hanging around 14K before the buy it now option was used. It was probably not going to climb over 22 or 23K because of that tag. Just my  Twocents  Good Luck with the car though. I mean no disrespect by my comments. I think honest opinions are what you were looking for.

On another note, my friend owned a '73 Vette for about 5 days, and in that short amount of time he was sold on it and now wants one for keeps. I'm worried about driving one myself. I may never go back to Mopar.  Wink

If you don't mind "falling out" of the door since it sits so low.. I've driven a LS-6 4speed '71 'Vette once and then drove the 4speed Hemi 'Cuda the next day.. Sure, the 'Vette handled great, but I liked the slightly higher stance of the 'Cuda...

I'm surprised everyone likes that color so much, to me it looked like the General Lee color.  It's Hugger orange, chevy color.
Well hello to all.  Hear are a few pictures.  I took it for a ride after work and I must admit, I felt real cool cruising in the bad boy.  Lots to adj and fix up, but what a cool car the 69 Charger is.  I think I'll keep it. laugh   One picture is of the black painted front end that I dislike very much.  I call that the black hole.  Thanks for all your help.  Hey not for nuttin, I service and fix callme elevators all day long, any elevator/escalator guys or girls out there?  Rob.

Nope, I've been dealing with Muscle cars for over 35 years.  I just try to make sure I make good deals.  So far so good.  The one car I lost money on was a 69 396 Camaro Indy pace car. I did a frame off restoration, made magazines, and even reproduced the Indy flags off the back just like the original.  I had 25,000 in parts in that car back in 84 and sold it for 17,500.00.  Outside of that loss,  I try to buy cars that I can get my money back on.  I also have a wife to answer too and 3 kids and lots of bills.   I feel I'm lucky to be able to even have a Muscle car, I just don't want to pour money and time into it and regret it.  I've already made up my mind to restore it further and enjoy it, and if I do not recoup all my funds, Oh well.  See thats why I sold that beautiful Corvette, I would always tell people, I'm not a vette guy, I'm a muscle car guy that likes vettes.  It just never hit my soul.  Now Gm guy or not, I see a Mopar, like the challenger conv I passed the other day and I'm thinking about that car all day.  I've been thinking about 69 Chargers since 69.  I'm thrilled to have one, I apologize to all my new Mopar friends for actually thinking of bailing.  If only you knew what I've been through to get this car, starting with Bank America losing my money, but its past me now, I waxed it today, tomorrow I change the antifreeze, and then I have about 100 items coming my way in the mail.    I gotta laugh, all this started from "anyone have any roof trim?"  laugh

Not sure where LVD is but, I'm on call (fixing elevators) this SAt and Sun.  Thanks for mentioning it though.  Plus I need to change these gears.  Newest issue is it runs hot. I put a new thermostat in it 160* but it already had a 160*.  It runs normal for about 15 mins, then starts creeping up?  If i let it sit and idle , it creeps up.  If I run it down the road it cools down some what maybe 1/2 way across the temp gauge.  It doesn't have a shroud, but it pulls strong air and still is hot while driving.  Ya think headgasket?  Maybe a combustion chamber is leaking in to the water?  I put new antifreeze in it.  It looked like rusty water before I did the change.  The whole radiator feels hot so I believe its flowing fine?  Any ideas?  When I get my new gears one day, will have to meet, your not far from me. Thanks, Rob.

Check the lower radiator hose.  The spring inside the hose usually rusts up.

  I'll check that, but I think the heat problem is probably a gasket.  I'll just add that to the list.  This car is like a cute baby, lots of work but great to look at.  You got me where the show is?   What town you from, I'm in Bethany.

Thats when you need the shroud, to channel all the air through the radiator.   Finding a used Sure-Grip 3.23 rear shouldnt be that hard...I'd step it up to at least a 3.55 though.
