    Very interesting.

    Someone remind me when the 6.4 is supposed to show up?

    Yeah, the idea that the R/T would have the 6.1L and the SRT would be the 6.4
    was very attractive to me. I am still hoping you can land the 6.1 "SRT" Hemi
    in an R/T. The 1970 Challenger (and 1971) had a lot of engine options...you
    could have an R/T with a 426 HEMI, 440 Six Pack, 440, as well as lesser V8s...
    I am sure the 383 was available, I don't know about the 340?

    Anyhow, this is exciting news. I wonder how much those 2 Challys will sell for.
    I wouldn't be surprised if someone pays a million...

    i too am hoping to purchase an '09 model with the 6.1 as the R/T. i was banking on the 6.4 replacing it the following year bringing the price down on the 6.1, so hopefully it still will. Where is PVOman or Hemidakota to clear things up when ya need them? :huh:

    I was REALLY hoping by the time the Challengers came out that the LY/LC SRTs would have a 6 speed manual.

    Oh well, guess they're waiting a bit longer.
    (I seem to recall that Chrysler confirmed it would be able to be had with a manual, perhaps they will be late availability)

    I read something else that supports pretty much everything you posted.

    http://www.media.chrysler.com/newsrelease....=7301&mid=1

    They, too, state that the first SRT8s will be 6.1 5spd autostick, just like all other SRT8s.

    A lot more than these new ones will ever be worth... and probably no more than Challenger 5302, especially if 5302 has a big-block.

    The latest issue of Mopar Enthusiast magazine states that the production Challenger will have a hidden "b" pillar, open style grille (cross hairs that are moved to the lower facsia), and tail lights separated with a white reverse light like the 1970 model.

    This confirms what we have suspected from viewing the shots of the camo "mules."

    well, there are a few more pieces to the puzzle chazcron...

    how do you hide the b pillar anyway?

    Oh, man, moving the crosshairs to the lower fascia has lots of ugliness potential. I'm glad to hear about the open grill, though.

    Hidden by a fixed window. I guess that backup light is correct. Here is a crosshair in the lower grille:

    Oh, that's not so bad. I worry they'll make some big plastic disaster out of it, but if it's like your pic that's great.

    The "crosshair" deal from Mopar Enthusiast was just an artists conception.

    ....although in that pic it doesn't look too bad at all.

    Awesome photoshopping.

    Thanks, can you post a scan or a digital picture of the Mopar Enthusiast conception?

    It's basically the same as yours, except it's the same color as the body (it's part of the bumper mold I suppose)

    I hope the cross hair removes the smilely face look.
