1969 DODGE CHARGER R/T(SE) 440 - 1:18 SCALE DIECAST MODEL

 

In 1969 not much was changed form previous models of the popular Charger by Dodge. It's B-Body remained but cosmetic exterior changes included a new grille with a center divider and new longitudinal taillights both designed by Harvey J. Winn.
A new trim line called the Special Edition (SE) was added which could be available by itself or packaged with the R/T, thus making an R/T-SE. The SE added leather inserts to the front seats only, chrome rocker moldings, a wood grain steering wheel and wood grain inserts on the instrument panel.
The now famous "bumblebee" stripes returned as well, but were changed slightly. Instead of four stripes it now featured one huge stripe framed by two smaller stripes. In the middle of the stripe an R/T cutout was placed. If the stripe was deleted, then a metal R/T emblem was placed where the R/T cutout was. Total production was around 89,199 units.
