I am looking for more info on all the different parts, brackets, etc... that make up the Shaker assembly. I am trying to piece together a setup for my Challenger.
I have found this partial page on Steve Magnante's website, anybody have a better copy? Or another diagram?
Thanks in advance,

Ben

Update:
I stumbled across a Challenger flat hood which used version  2 skin (topside) and version 3 shell (underbracing).

I'm thinking this would be from late 71 production, but I don't have change over dates for each hood feature.
I don't know how many flat hoods were made like this, but it's  theoretically possible that a shaker hood could have been built during the same time frame with version 2 skin and version 3 shell.

Just wanted to make a note here, in case anyone happens to find an odd hood like that.

Thanks for the input, I am curious if there are more encounters with "mixed" hoods to be shared here.

I have seen two original Challenger shaker hoods with the type 3 top (no stamping for Fratzog).  One was NOS and on display in Ron Adair's (Great Lakes NOS) tent at Carlisle many, many years ago.

The other was also NOS and purchased from Chrysler Canada for about $400 in the late 1980s.  It found its way onto a black '70 in Southwestern Ontario, though I haven't seen that car in decades.

To the best of my knowledge that style never made it onto a production vehicle

With all those parts and pieces it's still hard for me to believe that it was only an extra $97.30 to get the Shaker option.  :looney:
Cheers!

That would equate to about $600 according to the inflation calculator.

Pretty cheap if you tell me.
