  3. Great lookin car, right up 'til that abortion of a rear bumper treatment. Seriously, who looked at that and said "this will be a perfect finishing touch"?!

    1. No kidding, that center-mounted brake/backup light, right off the cab of some pickup truck, turned upside down. Left that one to the summer intern, I guess.

      I'd prefer a roots blower, too.

    2. You nailed it. The first thing that came to mind was the “family truckster” from Vacation.

    3. Shit, I was so horrified by that bumper I only just notice the JC Whitney caliber "twinfin" on the deck lid. Jeebus, man.

  4. All good until the rear bumper/ exhaust treatment. Seriously, who thought that was a great idea. Should have taken a design cur from ram pickups and gone the half moon bumper cut out for exhaust.

    1. Agreed. The '68-'69 B bodies were about as close to automotive perfection as I've ever seen, right off the line. Dodge AND Plymouth.

    2. I’ve got three B bodies and none are 68 or 69. 😂

    3. I'm not picky... Given a choice, a 340 A bodysuits me just fine, too. My last was a '72 Swinger, stone stock, right down to the grampa gold paint, factory hubcaps and AM radio. LOVED that little car.
