Seasoned journalist Scott Ross has unearthed new information from the key personnel involved in designing, engineering, and building these brash muscle cars. Ross provides comprehensive engine, transmission, and interior options as well as essential trim package and color code information. You learn the bottom line on original equipment packages and options. The large option list (and which options were available on which cars) is covered in great detail, which will greatly assist you with authentication.
In this book you'll find out why Chrysler went with the E-Body to compete against the Mustang, Camaro, and related pony cars, what it went through to get them into production, what was available on those cars, and why after 1971, it appeared that Chrysler was putting as little as it could into the Challenger and Barracuda. You'll also find many "I didn't know that!" items in the text, images, and related information.
Book contents and layout: After an opening chapter on the E-body, there are 10 separate chapters, one for each year from 1970 to 1974 and for each individual model. Each chapter is designed the same way including the "Window Sticker" section for individual models. Photos are extensive for interiors and exteriors, and where the photos don't tell the story author Scott Ross fleshes out the details in clearly written text. Pages 176 to 190 are appendices A through P which list the engines, transmissions, differentials, and paint schemes for both interior and exteriors, and include small images of swatches of each color.
