Hi Folks, I just bought a 2009 Challenger R/T Classic which has been tweaked a little by its previous owner. I'm more of an original car guy so I want to take it back to showroom.

I know the '09 Classics came with the RT emblem in the grille, did it also have a "Challenger" Script in the grille? I see some with the block lettered "Challenger", some with the emblems similar to the retro fender scripts, and some with none?

I know the fenders only have the retro Challenger scripts so I'm good there.

Were there any emblems on the back of the car? Again I see many variations of emblems there, but wanted to know what the scheme was when it left the assy line. I'm trying to find a sales brochure that shows the back but I'm having no luck.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

As with all R/T Classics, the 2009 model came with only an R/T emblem on the driver's side and script emblems on the front fenders



Quite a few owners (including myself) have added the Classic Script Challenger emblem next to the R/T emblem to pay homage to the 1970's models.

A friend of mine had a new '09 Classic that had the block badge on the grille, so it looks like it was comme ci, comme ca.

Hemi, is that a "stick on" grille script you have next to the R/T?

Yes. But there is a new version that snaps onto the grill.

There was a thread on the block Challenger emblem in the front grille. Seemingly no rhyme or reason as to why some came with it and some did not.

That 70 is bad to the bone !
XXXX3!! That white top and the all the white on the Challenger is perfection! The body stripe I absolutely love!! Sure would have been cool if they could have made some new ones with the white top!

As a rule they came with the block Challenger on the passenger side of the grill but it has been talked about in the past and there are some cars that didn't come with it.
