would the window sticker be the most reliable way to tell the " actual  build date " since it went on at the end ? mine has the spd as 11- 2- 70 and the completed sticker date of 10-27-70 ...the door sticker is 10-70 .. also, it would show what factory installed options actually came on a car since that is what you paid for ?

it appears that the date on the bottom of the window sticker is the "print date" for that document

I believe this is the date it was releases to the factory or factory floor to be built, typically the "Actual Production Date" is 4-6 days later 

while I have not seen any factory window stickers that differed from equipment listed on factory broadcast sheet, invoice, ADSN or fender tag ..... I have seen two invoices with notations on them for equipment that was different than what was actually on a delivered car (in both cases missing OPTIONS).

@ek3   My 74 has a A17 (Wed) SPD, 1004 (Thurs) Window Sticker Date, and 1010 (Wed) Door Sticker Date.  So build date was 6 days after the window sticker as said by 6bblgt.

was referring to this car .. with tags and sheet says it came with a shaker...would the window sticker show the shaker option if it was not installed ?? just for the conversation, not trying to stir things up !! https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Dodge-Challenger/184466612426?hash=item2af31120ca%3Ag%3ANY8AAOSwKFlfclTK&LH_ItemCondition=3000&ul_ref=https%253A%252F%252Frover.ebay.com%252Frover%252F1%252F711-53200-19255-0%252F1%253Fmpre%253Dhttps%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.ebay.com%25252Fitm%25252F1970-Dodge-Challenger%25252F184466612426%25253Fhash%25253Ditem2af31120ca%2525253Ag%2525253ANY8AAOSwKFlfclTK%252526LH_ItemCondition%25253D3000%2526campid%253D5338071934%2526toolid%253D10001%2526customid%253D%2526srcrot%253D711-53200-19255-0%2526rvr_id%253D2659330823917%2526rvr_ts%253D6695d9b61750ac3db765ee1bffbe2701

My question about that car...is how would YOU restore it...with the shaker hood to match the tag and sheet(if it has one) or with a rally hood to match the story ?
However the owner wants to restore it.  It will always be questioned either way you go so build it to your liking. Most in the hobby know the Shaker was not available on Challengers until late 70 model year. I have always heard a few were made early in the model year but have never seen solid proof.

This car reminds me of a story I was told in the early 80s

A guy stopped by a service station I was working at because I had my 70 Challenger R/T SE parked out front.  He came to tell me the story that his brother had ordered a 70 Challenger R/T with a Shaker hood but they never shipped it because the hood was later determined to be unsafe with the additional hood bracing so in an accident it would not easily fold and would go through the window and take the head off the crash dummy.

My own 70 Shaker Challenger has an SPD of 630 and has the crumple zones in the hood so that it will fold in an accident. 

 :thinking:

Same thing happened to me in 1970 with my Challenger R/T order, came with a R/T budge hood
My Shaker Challenger now has a SPD of 610
