Let's see. A stripe package like that costs $239.00 from ridergraphix.com. Self-adhesive Challenger badges are $36.50 each at mopartsracing.com. Throw in another $120.00 for labor if you don't want to put the stripes on yourself (any moron can stick a Challenger badge on, so we won't count labor for that). Yep, the "special edition" package should be a mere $432.00 more than a regular R/T. Hmmmmm....why do I have the feeling it's going to be a LOT more than that?

The wheels will add a pretty penny.

Aren't those the conventional if optional R/T wheels?

I see Dodge even copied my idea for the script badge on the new Challenger. Must have been a good idea.

No...they have a "softer" spoke. Think American Racing Torque Thrust II style. They look more "vintage".

...and YOU copied it from a '71 Challenger. So which came first: the chicken or the egg?

No the classic package uses the wheels currently available from (Mopar Performance / Direct Connection or whatever they are called now..) as over the counter at the dealer. But as said before they are pricey.

You could order a base R/T and order these wheels, Buy a set of 20inch tires , a stripe kit and emblems and probably be pretty close to classic package
