Hi all,

Just joined the forum, hope to be spending some time here in the future.

I'm currently looking around to hopefully find my first Challenger.

I've seen this one for sale - 2018 Dodge Challenger Texas City TX | League City Galveston Houston Texas 2C3CDZFJ3JH283842 (demontrondmitsubishi.com)

The thing I noticed right away was the missing side stripes. Then I ran the VIN to see the build details and sure enough it shows side stripe delete.

Do they still have the T/A and 392 decals if you option the delete or has some one messed around with those ?

Many thanks in advance.

Welcome to Challengertalk ;) Not sure what you mean by "Do they still have the T/A and 392 decals if you option the delete or has some one messed around with those ? "

If you order the delete, they are never installed at the factory. You could always order the stripes and have them installed, or aftermarket, but there are no stripes for that particular car, they were just skipped

Hi there, and thanks for the reply.

Yes it's the T/A and 392 fender decals I wondered about. I was thinking it looks odd with just those on and thought they would be deleted along
with the actual stripe itself. The stripe delete option seems to be unusual, I can't find any T/A pictured without it, apart from the odd ones where the owner has removed them themselves.

Yeah, if you do a 2020 R/T with T/A package, it removes everything. But they didn't have the 392 obviously

I can't say they didn't add those at the dealer (at customers request perhaps). I suspect stripe delete would remove the T/A for sure, and likely the 392

Well I got the CarFax report on that T/A I was looking at. I'm put off as it states 4+ owners. Why would a 3 year old car show that many owners ?

Is the carfax clean otherwise? People are fickle for the most part and change the mind easily.
My car had only 1 owner but has a moderate accident AND a lemon buyback.
I would be less concerned about owners and more about if the maint was done in a timely fashion.

That would bother me a lot as well. Find out if they are dealers or something odd. Or a lease/rental company.

Huge red flag.

And if any of the owners is FCA then you absolutely don't want this car.
