Dodge Challenger T/A

As we said before the Challenger T/A version differs greatly from the base Challenger. The T/A version had a different stripe, which was used in 1971 as the stripe used on most Challengers. The T/A also had a fresh air scoop mounted on the hood. The Challenger had a “duck tail” spoiler and front spoilers. Lastly, the Challenger T/A’s exhaust exits out the sides in front of the back wheels.

Dodge Challenger T/A Hood

Dodge Challenger T/A HoodChallenger T/A’s hood is a very unique feature that was available only to the T/A. The hood is made of lightweight fiberglass. What really sets this hood apart from all other cars is the hood scoop. The sleek design really blends in nicely with the rest of the car. Some might think that the scoop is “all show and no go”, but this hood scoop is functional and draws in fresh air. The hood was usually painted Organasol. It differed from the AAR because it didn’t paint the tops of the fenders and doors. They only painted the hood itself.

Dodge Challenger T/A Front and Rear Spoilers

Dodge Challenger T/A SpoilersThe spoilers on the Challenger T/A also set it apart from other cars. The front spoilers are what they call “chin” spoilers. As you can see in the image the “chin” spoilers are located on the front bottom of the car. The rear spoiler is what is called a “duck tail “. It is located on the back end of the trunk lid. TheĀ AAR ‘Cuda also has a very similar rear spoiler.

Dodge Challenger T/A Side Exhaust

Dodge Challenger T/A ExhaustThe exhaust on the Challenger T/A came out the side of the car. On most ‘Cudas (excluding the AAR), Challengers, and other Mopars, the exhaust exited out the rear of the car in a variety of ways. However, the T/A’s exhaust came out right in front of the back wheels, on both sides none the less. Before exiting out the side exhaust pipes though, it was routed through the standard muffer (which was mounted underneath the back seat).
