One such package that was used to market '70 Dodge Challengers in California was called the "Western Special," and it included a variety of unusual options. Dean Govostis of Burr Ridge, Illinois, wasn't looking for a Western Special Challenger when he found this car on the internet. Seeing the condition of this car, however, enticed him to call the owner to find out more about it. The owner of the car was a gentleman named John, who lived in California, and bought, restored, and sold houses. Hearing a little about the car, Dean decided it would be well worth a trip to look at the Challenger, and flew to Burbank, California. Coded A91, Western Special Challengers were equipped with the 383 two-barrel engine, console shifted automatic transmission, standard dash with wood-grain inserts, rim-blow steering wheel, and pedal dress up bezels. On the outside, the Western Special featured a vinyl top, Rally wheels, wheelwell and side moldings, bumper guards, and a driver-side remote mirror....
Performance took a hit in the mid- to late- 1970s due to growing emissions controls and an oil crisis, but that didn’t stop Burt Reynolds and his mustache from having a good time in a 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am in "Smoky and the Bandit". But there was a time when product placement hadn't been invented yet and movies featured the coolest cars out there. Nicknamed Trigger in the film, a total of four of these Firebirds were built specifically for the movie and all were damaged during production. These classic muscle cars were (and still are) badass in every way and were actually affordable during their time. After completing the film, Burt Reynolds - then at the height of his career - actually went out and bought Today, unfortunately, automakers and movie studios are more interested in marketing new (and usually expensive) cars whether they’re cool or not.
A: The Challenger was introduced in 1970 with two models:
SE formal hardtop
SE formal hardtop
The standard engine in the R/T was the 383 Magnum. Optional was the 440-4, 440 Six Pack, and 426 Hemi. The 340 was not available on the R/T, no matter what anyone tells you - they're wrong.
The base Challenger could be had with the Slant 6 or the 318 standard. From there, you could get the 383-2 and the 383-4 (almost like an R/T incognito). The 340 also was available on the base Challenger (hardtop and ragtop only) as the 340 Performance Package . . . and this is where the T/A comes in.
As Dodge decided to offer the 340 package on the base Challenger, it only makes sense that the Challenger T/A package was offered on the base Challenger. This package - only available on the hardtop - came with a fiberglass hood similar to the 1969 A12 Super Bees and Road Runners, special striping, side-exit exhaust (except in CA, I believe), a special spoiler package, and a 340 engine with Six Pack carburetors, among other heavy-duty equipment. This model was produced to certify certain modifications legal for Trans-Am racing (get it? T/A? But Pontiac already dibs for the name). The front and rear tires were of different sizes - very unusual at the time - and was the best-handling Challenger of them all. Despite a 1971 advertisement showing the T/A would return, none were built.
Regarding your Mustang question, I'd say the CJ is equivalent to the Challenger's Six Pack. Parts are much easier to find for the Mustang. The Boss 429 was practically hand-built, and in some ways it can't be compared to the Challenger because of the modifications that were required for it to be built. However, bone-stock Boss 429 cars tended to disappoint road testers at the time because it wasn't as fast as it looked (despite 13-second times, like a Hemi Challenger R/T). However, Boss 429s have been super-expensive for a very long time.
The 1972 Charger . . . depends on the model. There was the R/T replacement called the Rallye which had a 400 standard and could have a 340 and 440 optional (about 5 or so Six Packs were built before it was cancelled on the first week). You could also get the 440 on the SE. This was the first year for the low-compression engines, so 1971s tend to be more desirable but the 1972 have their own appeal and can still be fast.
