Phil, here is an A66 I took pics of in the for sale corral at the Mopar Nationals in 2017. A very solid complete survivor car. It had the decal for the hood engine call out. Should have bought it, probably would have gotten it for $20K.

Did a tag decode on the green on green w the green bumble A66. It was a very interesting car. In addition to the unique color combo, it had a rallye dash with the 4 speed, and was a relatively early build A66.

Thanks for posting
Another addition to the registry
That looked like a decent deal for a running A66 Challenger

Interesting, I thought the 340 decals that were put on before badges were available lasted only for a few weeks, but this car has an SPD in late October, must have been one of the last ones to get them!

Specific to the use of the 340 decals vs the introduction of the metal hood callouts;
The general consensus is that the metal call outs were not available until late November, early December 1969.
The A66 340 package was not readily available for delivery until mid to late September, 1969 and the 340 was not initially planned to be offered in the Challenger. They had to use the decals until the metal call outs were ready.
I am going to add a tracking column on the registry data spread sheet to track cars with the decals.
The registry data should be able to help in identifying approximate dates for this.

Here is a later A66 Challenger data plate
from the 2014 posting that indicated that the hood had no holes drilled yet with a C04 SPD. (December 4th).

Never would have thought that they would have a following, but apparently they do have some small block 340 guys that have made them interesting cars.

Ma Mopar was not going to originally offer the 340 in a Challenger and was initially only available in the Cuda.
They made a late decision (mid to late September) to install the 340 in a Challenger and included a few of the RT options with the small block 340. (HD suspension, HD brakes, bumble bee stripe, RT hood and initially E-60-15 rallye wheels and tires) with the bumble bee decal in the rear quarter windows.
They were essentially RT Challengers with the 340 and a JH code.
If you think about it, they made 11,589 RT Challengers in 1970 w a 383. They only made 6933 A66 340 performance Challengers in 1970. The A66 cars are more rare. And there were only 264 A66 340 convertibles built.

I have owned a number of big block RT Challengers in my early years (440-6, 440-4, and several 383's) Drove a high winding
340 Challenger and never went back! JMO

6PK, Thanks for your thoughts. Phil
