What Color To Paint it? Army Serviceman Buys 71 Charger To Put 572 Hemi In

So, when  stationed in Kuwait, Army Serviceman and Aircraft mechanic TRG  started to look for a project car to work on when he got back to the states. He bought this 1971 Charger online from the original owner in Burleson Tx and  and picked it up last just last month. As an aircraft mechanic in the Army he wanted to put his skills to use on this rust free Charger.

With plans of putting a 572 Street  Hemi with 801 Dyno HP, 5 or 6 speed manual trans, Dana Posi and all leather interior, the question remains about the paint job after he media blast and undercoats the entire car.

So the question is… factory look keeping the chrome and paint  yellow or  go another way, since the car is not going to be factory original at all.

Maybe restomod and paint flat black paint w/jet black stripes and a red outline.

Please post pics, suggestions and tips  if you want, and thanks for the help!

Still have not tracked down the car it goes to

Kind of look like they'd go on the back of a mid to later 70s Dodge Diplomat.

Close No cut out on these for the bumper like this one has

Most of the fords had a flat rubber strip?? I’m thinking mopar , satellite or cuda class

A early 70s model. Maybe a ford maverick or a Plymouth duster? Hard to tell

71 Plymouth satellite.

First thought, but naw...

On the car, am sure of it.

Ford Pinto maybe. Though those old Challengers had similar guards like that.

Keep it chunk the ruler!! Blue all ready!!

Could be a vw bug 60s 70s

Ford 250 pickup push guard

I got it a car right

1949 ford 2 door coupe

Looks like it's for an early squarebody gm truck

Who cares , ruler is a keeper though . Vote RED across the board .

70s VW Beetle??

How about a Dodge Dart?

No markings on it anywhere?

a car

1978 Ford LTD

Square body's had those too


Camero split bumper

Can we not do car stuff w/o the political stuff?
