New for 2018, B5 Blue and Plum Crazy exterior paint colours are now available on all 2018 model-year Chargers and Challenger T/A and T/A 392 models (all other Challenger models late availability), bringing a sense of nostalgia and powerful bursts of colour to highways and dragstrips across the country.

Since 1969 and 1970, B5 Blue and Plum Crazy have been two of the most desired paint colours for the Dodge Challenger and Charger. Enthusiast demand is being answered with the return of these two iconic colours – as the signature paint colour is directly associated with high collectability and the famed “Mopar-or-no-car” legacy. Factor in the widest performance range ever for the 2018 Challenger and Charger lineup and it’s a perfect time to paint the Dodge brand’s iconic muscle car arsenal with these nostalgic colours.

Most car shows or classic car auctions show examples of these colours that rolled out of the factory more than 40 years ago. Known as High Impact Paint (HIP), the roster included names such as Panther Pink, HEMI Orange, Top Banana, Sassy Grass, Go Mango and Plum Crazy.
