Hate the truck emblem. My Dodge Challenger is not a Dodge Ram. It is a R/T Classic so I went with the classic pentastar
I considered that as well. I remember the Fratzog being on the door panels of my '72. But when I looked at it I was reminded of a Polara and not a Challenger. I guess to me the Fratzog is 60's. The pentastar was 70's.Not a fan of the truck emblem on my car. Not a fan of using the auto parts division logo (Mopar) on my car. Not a fan of using the Chrysler logo on my Dodge. The ONLY emblem I can see putting on it is the FRATZOG. That's what's going on it when I get back.
Thanks for the info. allpar is incorrect. I know my '72 had the Fratzog but not on the exterior. They also had the pentastar on the outside too. Check the passenger side lower front fender on all V8 cars from Dodge/Chrysler/Plymouth in that era. My choice had to do with how the two emblems made me feel. After all it is my car, I can mess up the history and retro if it feels right to me.Actually, per Allpar: Dodge logos and hood ornaments Dodge used the three-delta, rocket-like Dodge emblem called a FRATZOG (so named by the designer because "it had to be called something.") from 62 to 76 (the muscle car era) and the Pentastar did not get put on Dodge car exteriors until 82, when Iacocca gave the order.
Hence, the FRATZOG is the correct retro hood ornament, if you're trying to go as retro as possible.
