Assuming I could only travel back once, I'd travel back to mid 59 to catch both 59 and 60 at the same time. I'd get a 59 Dodge Power Wagon, Power Giant with the 318 Poly, hook a car trailer to it and load a 60 Polara D500 on the trailer. Both loaded with every option.

So many to choose from! Nostalgia whittles it down to three. First, a B-5/black 1969 Hemi-Road Runner coupe w/4-speed, power brakes, and A.M. radio. I got to be the first person in Canada to drive this car on the road, the day before the New Product Line Intro, September 1968 (there's a story to go with this). Second would be my 1966 Fury I coupe Police Special. It came with everything Heavy Duty (rad, brakes, 727, suspension, etc.). Instead of the 318 Poly and 8-3/4 rear end, I would order a Hemi and a Dana rear end.
Third, I would order my 1969 300 4-door, Green/Green, just the way my new one came off the truck in 1969, with Power Disc, Steering, Windows and Door Locks, tint, and an A.M. Radio, but I would add the T.N.T. engine option, a power seat and A/C.

I just thought of a third car. I would go back in time to when the shooting of "Bullet" was over and buy all of the used Chargers.

There are A LOT of Mopar cars I would want. however the ones that stand out to me and I would want more than any are either a 1970 Chrysler 300 H with power windows/brakes, rim-blow wheel, dual exhaust tips like the Sport Fury GT, and Polyglas tires. View attachment 383362

Or a 1970 6bbl Sport Fury GT, EXACTLY like the one in the picture.

I love the 70 SFGT choice but would go with white interior. I do prefer the 71 grill though. They didn’t come as 6 BBL though right? Well maybe I’d just do 71 with the U code, tach, and loaded. Possibly a year or 3 later buy a donor 3 speed car and change to 4 speed.

Elastomeric bumpers

-items to add would be P.S., P.B. and a Stereo.

I’d still love one of these!!
p.s. Ironically, I didn’t find out till 35 yrs later Dad’s group designed the Shaker system. Bet if I had known back then that option would be added.
You might like the one my boy dragged home last weekend. 70 AAR set up for the strip.
