I believe the one with Charlie Sheen was called Wraith and i think he drove a modified daytona or conquest also??? Lets not forget about the Challenger in The 2nd fast and furious movie. In the old tv series Mannox, did he drive a Cuda or a Challenger??? There is also a segment in Chips where they are trying to pull over a kid in a red challenger for speeding, it was an SE (had a small back window)

I thought Death Proof was awful. In addition to the poorly cloned R/T and the ignorant stereotyping of the Challenger owner, the scenes that featured the Challenger were ridiculous, at best. Who cares if the cars are cool, if the "chase" scenes have bimbos flopped all over the hood while the car is moving? I don't. Other than a few good lines of dialog when the women were discussing the original movies, it was a total waste of film and vehicles. Sorry.

Termanial Velocity was the Sheen film and the car used was Sarafians kids car from Vanishing point..
Vanishing point the original of coarse and on the Beverly Hillbillys Ms Jane drove a blue challenger convertible in many episodes. I think Mike Brady had a Challenger as well but the more I think about it it may have been a Satilite.

The dukesof Hazzard they had a yellow challenger in a season or two I think Daisy drove it ,I know she had a white jeep but I remember a yellow challenger as well.

I don't remember a movie with Charlie Sheen driving a Challenger, but Barry Newman drove a white Challenger R/T in the cult classic "Vanishing Point":

Vanishing Point (1971)

I own the black (originally Sub-Lime Green) Challenger convertible seen at the beginning of "The Legend of Billie Jean":

I know you said movies, but there was a short lived Fox T.V. show called "Drive"
that Nathan Fillion had an old Black Challenger with blue striping...show sucked but seeing the Challenger made it worth it.

In the Movie -"Born on the Fourth of July" with Tom Cruise.. he is driving a 1970 Challenger TA to a Bar.. it's a short clip as he arrives at the bar.. If I had not owned one, I never could have told you thats what it was..

Mannix drove many Mopars...

Mannix drove a 'Cuda.
He drove a 68 Dart convertible
a 69 Dart convertible customized
a 70 'Cuda convertible
a 71 'Cuda convertible
and a 72 Barracuda convertible


Like many shows of the times, the sponsers would update the body for each model year during the shows run- Except on Mannix & The Brady Bunch- ficticious convertibles for the 1972 model year show up.

There is a 72 Challenger convertible- it was in the 1972 season of The Mod Squad:
