    I was at the MCACN on the weekend and my buddy had two questions for me.

    First - what is longer a B Body or C Body Mopar?

    Second - what three 1970 Mopars were available with a 440 Six Pack or 440 Six Barrel engine and NO Fresh Air Package?

    Okay give it some thought and look for the answers down below.

















    Second answer is 1970 Charger R/T, 1970 Sport Fury GT and 1970 Superbird. Although I was of the opinion that the Superbird was a Road Runner and really it should be only the two cars were available without a fresh air option.

    Here is proof that the B-Body is in fact longer than the C-Body.

    If it was missing the tip (I revised my original wording) on the front it'd be shorter even if the rear bumpers were lined up.

    The Superbird was built using 1970 Plymouth Belvederes from what I have read over the years.

    Are you referring to the N96 fresh air package?
    The the '691/2 Road Runner and Superbee 440 6 bbl/6 pack cars are not fresh air cars. Please clarify what "fresh air" is defined as......

    To be fair, the comparison should be cars of the same years, 69 Coronet vs. 69 Polara.

    I am in the belief that it is actually a Road Runner. They share the same VIN RM23, with the "A13 Package" = Superbird. Anyway that really isn't important but it was rather a topic of discussion.

    Yes, I do believe it is in reference to the N96 fresh air package and not the A12 cars with the fiberglass pin-on hoods, however, the question was referring to the 1970 car line up.

    I believe there might be a fourth car, the 1970 Coronet R/T with 440 Six Pack appears to have been available without the N96 option?
