A friend of mine just picked up a 74 CJ5. My question is: The Jeep has factory looking hood stripes reading "Hustler R/T". The Jeep is original in paint and body, and the stripes are faded similar to the rest of the Jeep. The Jeep is a factory 304 2 barrel with a 3 speed and posi rear. VIN search doesn't reveal anything spectacular other the the above items and the fact that it was a Toledo factory Jeep. Everything else other than the stripes and add-ons looks like every other pre-76 CJ5 I've seen. Has anyone heard of this? Was it a trim package or dealer installed item, or just some factory looking stripes that have been installed for a long time? I'll try and get pics and post tomorrow.

The hood stripes look similar to the "Renegade" decals of that era, but in the same type cursive script as "Renegade" was written, it has "Hustler R/T". It also has the matching black hood stripe down the center like the Renegades had.

*edit* Actually Jeepgod, I'm a little disappointed, 'cause if I remember right your the guy who's usually in the know about these things.

Hmmmm, maybe Larry Flynt was the previous owner and had the decals custom-made..........?

My feeble memory thinks that there was a Hustler R/T package on mid or late 70s Mopars. Maybe a version of a Barracuda with a 340. Might have been the larger cars too, like a high-performance version of a Dodge Coronet. I just can't pull it all together.

Somebody might have gotten the decal kit for one of those and stuck it on a Jeep. But I think that the lettering for that was a plain block style. I don't remember a cursive version. I've killed off too many brain cells since then.

Like usually, I didn't get the pics last night, and don't have access to a digital camera again until next week (unless I can talk jdogg into snapping a couple
). When I get them, I'll post them ASAP. Thanx for the help so far.
