I was looking through the charger registry site at the old litterature and there is a statement related to the base vs R/T and 500 bright drip rail molding that I do not completely understand. 

It states:

Bright Drip-Rail Molding.
The Bright drip-rail molding, standard on Charger R/T and Charger 500 is retained in Charger.  But it ends at the base of the C-pillar instad of countinuing into the belt molding as in the Charger R/T and Charger 500.

My question.  When I look at my car, which is a base model hard top, the drip molding wraps around and it looks like it meets up with the belt molding.  So, does anyone have a pic of an R/T or 500 that I might compare.  Unfortunately, I do not have my car here right now, so I cannot post a pic.  I will do that when I get the car back from the shop.

Thanks,

James

Mine has drip rail and belt molding on the fender tag so I know it was ordered with them.  What puzzles me is the strange wording in the description I quoted about the c pillar.   shruggy  I must be reading something wrong, or there is another configuration.  Eventually, I will figure it out.  Thanks for the response.

  perhaps it was an option on a XH just like the clock  scratchchin     with the clock being standard along with belt mouldings on a 68 -69

heres a picture of  mine ,
 thought all 68 -70 chargers were the same   shruggy
