1966 Dodge ChargerVehicle Overview
|1966 Dodge Hemi Charger "White Elephant" Nascar program car|
THE "WHITE ELEPHANT"
AS SEEN ON GRAVEYARD CARZ. WE BELIEVE IT TO BE 1 of 85 SPECIAL NASCARPROGRAM REPLICA CARSBUILT. KNOWN IN THE COLLECTOR CAR CIRCLES AS "THE WHITE ELEPHANT"
ONE THING IS FOR SURE IT IS AGENUINE FACTORY PRODUCED1966HEMI CHARGER. 1 of 468 Total Produced and 1 of only 250 HEMI 4 Speed cars produced. There are only 42 known to still exist today!!
This Hemi Charger is the recipient of a recent "October 2015" complete VISUAL INSPECTION by noted Mopar expert Galen Govier who determined the car still retains its "BORN WITH" ORIGINAL HEMI ENGINE, "BORN WITH"ORIGINAL 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION and"BORN WITH"ORIGINAL DANA60 REAR ENDin addition to its ORIGINAL FENDER TAG and ORIGINALBODY CODESand ORIGINAL VIN PLATE. And in addition to Galen Govier's inspection report this car also has a copy of its original IBM card documenting it along with being written about in 2 different hard cover muscle car books.
*This Hemi Charger was graded an outstanding 2.5 for condition By Galen Govier and since then has been cleaned and fluffed bringing it to an evenhigher level*
***Galen Govier also gave it an outstandinggrade of 6+ on his collectabilityscale which ranges from1 - 6 with 6 being the best*** THAT'S ABSOLUTLEY UNHEARD OF!!
In the last 90 days the Hemi has had major $$$$$ poured into the following services and restoration:
Full upper-end rebuild;
All new Pan Gaskets, Rear Main Seal and other engine gaskets;
New Phoenix Friction Hemi Racing Clutch with all new Accessory Parts;
New Hemi Rear Shock Absorbers;
Rebuilt Original Starter Motor with resurfaced Flywheel;
Original Instrument Panel was R&R, and all instruments were rebuilt and recalibrated;
New Tach Sending Unit;
New Headlight Motors, Limit Switches and Relays;
New Heater Core;
All New Fluids
Everything works correctly (even the Original Radio) and this Hemi is an absolute pleasure to drive
ThisHEMI CHARGER also appears to retain all of its original sheet metal and its original factory interior.It is an extremely well kept car that received 1 repaint over its lifetime and has a detailed photo book of pictures showing the complete paint job.
Interior as stated is all original and shows extremely well there are a couple of seams coming lose on the driver's bottom seat that could easily be fixed but overall it is one of the better original interiors you will find. Again this car has been extremely well cared for and preserved and it's ready to show, drive and enjoy
The trim is original and in extremely good show condition as are the bumpers, grill and tail lights. All Glass is excellent and shows clear. It also still retains its original spare tire and jack.
Underside of the car is very clean and NOT undercoated. Floors are great.
Runs as good as it looks and it has great acceleration as well as it shifts as smooth as butter.
Original Low Mileage car as of today there are 48968 miles on the car there is also an oil change sticker on the windshield stating the next oil change should be at 50,xxx miles at it is dated from 1997. So in the past almost 20 years this car has been driven less than 700 miles. Yet it fires right up and runs, drives and shifts excellent!
NOW ON TO THE UNKOWN:
This is the exact car that was featured on the Dec 23, 2015 episode of GRAVEYARD CARZ (episode 23) on the VELOCITY CHANNEL where Mark Worman stated he believed it to be an original Special Nascar Edition. The split is about 50/50 when it comes to people believing if the carwas produced or not.
It's been said that Dodge produced 85 Special NascarProgram HEMI Chargers for street usethat consisted of a special dual plenum induction air cleaner, Nascar styled wheels, rear spoiler, special reinforced motor mount and breather cap. As of today none are known to exist except for this car sure you can make the assumption more than 1 should exist ifDodge truly produced them BUT... out of the 468 Hemi Chargers Produced in 1966 only 120 total are known to exist today (42 4-speeds) and above that all of the Nascar items were bolt on and could easily been taken off and discarded over the years. We have photos available with the Nascar the equipment on it then.
The car has also been featured and written about intwo Hard Cover Muscle Car Books (THE GREAT BOOK OF MUSCLE CARS) and (MUSCLE CAR CHRONICLE) along with other mentions on numerous websites.
Whether the car is a Special Nascar Program car well that's for you to decide or investigate but it is a Genuine Original Factory Produced 1966 HEMI CHARGER which is extremely well priced for an Original Hemi 4 Speed Charger. If you could somehow prove or document it being a Nascar Charger you would own the Holy Grail andwould have a winning lottery ticket in your hand because the value would sky rocket.
