70-71 Cuda tail panel color
Posted by zgator on Thursday, March 27, 2008 12:03 PM
I've been looking at a lot of 1-1 cars and I see some that have the tail panel body color some are black and some are silver. Can somebody shed some light on this. All the ones I've looked at are the Cudas.383,440 Hemi.

I know for sure all 71 Cudas, regardless of engine, were painted Organisol (Chrysler name for it). It's the flat black/charcoal textured paint. Here's a link to the real paint:

Again, from the factory published (Ross Roy Inc.) "Salesman's 1971 Plymouth Data Book and Car Selector", the following information will answer your inquiry. There were three series of 1971 Barracuda's. The first was the "base Barracuda". It featured a body color rear body panel, WITHOUT a bright surround molding. The second series was the luxury model, the "Gran Coupe". It featured a satin silver rear body panel WITH a bright surround molding. (This was the second and final year for the Barracuda Gran Coupe series.) The third series was the hi-performance model, the 'cuda. The rear body panel was painted black (or as "danja442" correctly mentioned above, Organisol), and also featured a bright surround molding. Hope this clears things up for you? BlushShy Fury3

Now, to do something I normally don't do on this forum. Answer a question that hasn't been asked.[:0] As many of you know, I receive many Chrysler technical inquiries in my e-mail from members of three different forums. This question was asked there, and the answer is a very little known fact. The 1971 Monogram/Revell Barracuda 'cuda Hardtop kit has the optional factory installed rear window louver (or "slats") option package. When this option was installed, the bright rear window reveal moldings were painted BLACK. FYI...A rear window louver package was also an option on the 1971 Plymouth Satellite and Satellite Sebring 2-Door vehicles...to include the Road Runner and GTX. The rear window reveal moldings on these cars however, retained the standard bright moldings, and were NOT painted black. Information taken from the same 1971 Plymouth Data book, as in my above reply. Sorry for listing a reply to a topic that wasn't listed. Is this called hi-jacking? Okay, fire away!

Cool Fury, I've only seen a few Cuda's with the louvers and had never noticed the black moldings.
Thanks for the info, Earl Thumbs Up

OK Fury. 50 Lashes with a wet noodle.

But for real. Some guys get all bent out of shape over nothing. I little info never hurts.
Speaking of rear window trim, I see a lot of 71 Charger models that have had a vinyl top added and they bare metal the rear window trim. It is really a textured metal trim and is the color of the vinyl top. That is for the full tops only. The SE's half top has stainless around the rear window.

Now I can get 50 lashes.

College does give essay writing work for the students as their college assignment work which the student should be completing in his academic year. This is why the students opt for bestessay testimonials blogs and their experiences writers to write down their assignments to score good marks in their exams.
