The listing was pulled in the wee hours of the morning….maybe it will be back at a higher price?
Trumpets blaring as we announce that this featured car is our first Dodge Charger! And it is a nice one. Designed by Carl Cameron using the platform from the Coronet, the Charger introduced a fastback roofline and a pot-metal “electric shaver” grille. The grille used fully rotating headlights that when opened or closed made the grille look like one-piece unit. In 1966, four engines were offered: the base-model 318 cu in 2-barrel, the 361 cu in 2-barrel, the 383 cu in 4-barrel, and the new 426 Street Hemi. Only 468 Chargers were built with the 426. Today’s Charger is one of the 468! Read More

Road Runner’s, with their cute Beep-Beep horn, came standard with a 335-horse 383 V-8, a four-speed stick and a beefed-up suspension. The 426 Hemi was a ground-pounder, both in price and power – adding 425 Hemi horses into the Road Runner and a whopping $1,000 in price. If you bought one new, kept it nice and sold it in 2007 , you made a profit of about $75,000. Read More
