    Default Sema show teaser #2

    Well everyone
    Something is wrong with the uploading photos system here on the forum
    I have uploaded hundreds of photos in the past and even yesterday SEMA stuff
    but today I can not even upload 1 photo without it saying internal error
    I will try again from Las Vegas
    It would be nice if I could upload videos of the show here...

    4 doors? (Rear door) and is that a convertible top but solid frame around the doors? Can’t tell if that’s canvas or flat black top.

    I agree...hard to tell, but it does look like a convertible with sold door posts.

    Not sure if it’s a ‘Cuda or a Challenger, but none of those were ever manufactured with rear doors. As best I can tell it’s not a convertible, it’s just a vinyl top. A few MOPAR (Plymouth/Dodge) muscle cars did have those, but thankfully they were an exception to the rule.

    The red kinda looks to be a Mustang modded to be a 4 door convertible.
    Ours is a red, black and chrome 2017 F3 Limited. Bought new in 2/2019. The avatar is my first bike back in 1952, a Simplex Servi-Cycle. Photo taken at the Barber Museum.

    Vinyl top seems like a good guess. Also thinking 70 era Mopar product. Vinyl was a very popular option in those days. Looks like challenger to me. I had a two door Plymoth Sattelite with a vinyl top in 72. And that year, for whatever reason, brown was the hot color. Even I drank the kool-aid.

    My first car was a 1968 Dodge Coronet 440. Metallic green outside, dark green vinyl roof, medium green vinyl inside. Very similar body to the Plymouth Satellite, and I think the front fenders were shared with the Charger and RoadRunner. Even though there was a 440 big block engine, for my car it was used as a model number because mine had the 318 small block V8. Plenty of power for a 17 year old. Paid for it myself too, a whole $1400 in 1971.

    So I can say pretty definitely the red car is either a Plymouth Barracuda or a Dodge Challenger based on the proportions of the hood and trunk lid, and the Mopar rally wheels. There were no factory versions of those cars except two-door coupes. As I recall, the seats were very low and the doors very high - the bottom of the window was almost shoulder high. It felt a little like sitting in a tub.

    A friend of my dad had a Challenger with a 383 Magnum and a vinyl roof. As the saying went, it would pass everything but a gas station - but it wasn’t the fastest or most powerful Challenger. That title belonged to the 426 Hemi, which as I recall got about 5 mpg on a good day. The 426 had two staged double-pumper (2 gas feed lines) Holly carbs rated for 850 cfm each. The air cleaner was an oval about three feet from front to back that covered both carbs. If you stepped on it hard enough to open all four carb throats, you could watch the fuel gauge drop - providing you could overcome the acceleration g forces and absolute terror of trying to keep the thing pointed in the right direction. I will never forget that experience.

    Hope you all don’t mind reading a little blast from the past. It was fun to recall those memories and put them in writing.

    In my Senior year in college in 1965 I traded in my wife's '62 Red Mercury Comet with 2 speed automatic for a 1966 Dodge Coronet, beige outside with tan cloth interior, and 3 speed transmission. It even had a light in the trunk! All for $1600 minus trade. Fifty-five years later my wife still hasn't forgiven me for trading off her neat beloved red Comet!

    Dodge Challenger extended to 4 door. Lights underneath to show body extension. And, that's my guess..... Jim

    Looks like the same 4 door Baracuda in this article from the 2017 SEMA show.

    One off mid production glitch: 4 door barracuda that came out early or otherwise “not official”. Possibly same

    Thank you for the update. I do enjoy the blast from the past. Muscle cars of the era were my passion and dream. The closest I ever came was a 1960 Buick Invicta 4 door with a Wildcat 445 engine. Neat looking with the fins and strange back window. Let's just say, it would get up and go.

    Also had a 1964 Chevy SS. But that was watered down. 283 or such auto.
