Dipsticks! 409 on pass/348 on drivers. Loved those engines. I never had a 409 but made a number of 348 honk! I love tri-power!! Always been my favorite carb set up.

Are you referring to the "DODGE" coronet front fenders and hood? Plymouth used the coronet front parts because they were more aerodynamic than the belvedere parts, and the charger parts had too many differences.

hmmm, I'm stumped. The wing can't be it because it was a superbird only design, the dodge daytona had a different one, and the side vents weren't mopar........ wheels maybe? I don't know mopar very well, just always like the birds so I read a lot about them in the past. Interestingly enough, There's an original one sitting in a building a few miles away from my house, All original with one repaint.

Must be the 1/4 panel air scoops although on the GTX they were non fuctional and on the Superbird I believe they were functional.

Look at the rear window the GTX curves inward the superbird curves out ,the back glass and rear 1/4 of the roof is from a dodge 500 .on most under the vinyl top you can see the shabby body work (can belive i said that about a mopar )the were rushed to make the change for airodynamics .in 69 they only had to produce 500 Dodge Datonas but in 70 they had to produce 1 per dealer for the superbirds so body work was minimal at best if you see one smoothe it probably has ben fixed already the scoops on the fenders were an accident ,trying for brake cooling .but they pulled a vacumn from underneath car helped with downpressure

I'm looking at both of them and I think you've got it backwards. The GTX curves out and the Superbird curves in.
