Sport is a rather different model, that is depending on if its a sedan or coupe sport, if its a DOHC or a SOHC. on the Sport Coupes they were basiclly what the R/T was in 98-99. just went by a different name in the earlier years cept i dont think they came with a rear sway bar. also if they were a DOHC with the 5spd then well, its the R/T drivetrain.

Not 100% correct.

'95-'96 Sport Coupes were very close to an R/T, only real difference being the lack of leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and of course the tripes and badging. The '95-96 Sport Coupe could also be had with the SOHC for a credit, although the DOHC was standard. '95-96 Sport sedans did not have the upgraded suspension shared between the Sport Coupe and '98-99 R/T. Additionally, '69 Sport coupes could be had with either disk or drum brum rear brakes.

'97-99 Sports had different suspension, could be had with an automatic transaxle, and a number of other differences.
