    Hi, All! Does anyone know if the five chrome and stainless convertible trim pieces that surround the rear section (from quarter panel across the rear panel to opposite quarter) of a 1970/1971 Barracuda/Cuda convertible top interchange with a Challenger convertible? Thanks.

    I went to my parts book
    Looks like the part numbers are different
    Cuda
    3419774-5 qrt outside belt rear
    3419776 deck opening upper
    Challenger
    3419800-1 qrt outside belt rear
    3419777 deck opening upper

    For the top of the quarter panels:
    different for cars with the belt molding and without;
    Cuda
    3419770-1 qrt outside belt front w belt molding
    3419772-3 qtr outside belt front w/o belt molding
    Challenger
    3481720-1 qrt outside belt front w belt molding
    3419798-9 qtr outside belt front w/o belt molding

    I always thought the molding surrounding the convertible well was the same for Cuda and Challenger! Guess not!
    Hope this helps

    I know the front pieces are completely different.

    I have a full set that is drilled for boot snaps available if interested. I swapped it out because I don't have a boot with snaps.

    Thank you, 340Challconvert! I figured they were different but wasn't sure. There's a person selling on Craigslist a bunch of nice 'Cuda and MOPAR parts in Somerset, PA which is about an hour+ drive from my home. They advertised some convertible parts as I was interested in getting the original trim parts because those currently on my 1970 Challenger convertible have snaps on them, as does my top cover. I like original parts so if those parts would have fit I would have been interested. Anyway, I have attached the link for the ad.

    $10.00 each. 1970-1974 CUDA PARTS !!!

    This person is moving and wants everything to go so you or other For E Bodies Only members might be interested. Thanks again!

    Thank you, HooToTheCore! I like you have mine drilled for boot snaps and was looking to get original non-drilled parts. Thanks again. Check out my reply to 340Challconvert as a person is selling a bunch of good Cuda and MOPAR parts that you may be interested in.
