If a plain jane 63 4dr lark was ordered with a 289 and automatic, what rear axle would it have left the factory with? I'm thinking model 44, but then again I've seen lots of 259's with model 27 rear ends in them...

I'm away from my books, but am pretty confident that 289 = 44 rear end.

:) Yep; 289 = Model 44.
They don't get much cheaper than a Challenger V-8 2-door. The Plain Brown Wrapper [now R3-powered] was originally built and shipped as a really odd car: 289/4bbl/single exhaust [:0] and straight three-speed trans[:0]; no overdrive! They don't get much cheraper than that, but it still had a Model 44 under it. [^] BP
