1966 Dodge Charger

Big fastbacks were an integral part of the mid-60s, ith the sleek shapes being the preferred way of going fast on the tracks of NASCAR. As a result, ars like this 1966 Dodge Charger hit the streets with a unique performance look that still gets attention today. Add in a stout V8, unctional factory A/C, nd that awesome 4-seater interior and you get one awesome Mopar that rightfully earned its luxury/performance reputation.Finished in original RR1 Bright Yellow, his Charger doesn't get in your face with its performance intentions, ut rather neatly straddles the luxury and performance fields with ease. You can see mid-60s Chrysler DNA everywhere you look, rom the fine-toothed grille and round headlights to the simple V8 badges on its flanks, nd this big fastback looks fast even just standing still. Finish quality is quite good, articularly for a restoration that's now a few years old, lthough it's not a show piece. That really doesn't matter, ecause you're going to drive this one, ight? Most of the chrome and stainless trim is original and in good shape, lthough a few bits are starting to show their age; however, here's nothing that stands out as needing attention and the overall look is very appealing. We especially like the squared-off fender tops with their own strip of stainless, hich exaggerates the length of the car, nd the sharply creased sheetmetal gives it a lot of interest that makes it look sporting. We'll admit it: we love these fastback Chargers!The interior is one of the coolest of the '60s and it's a shame they didn't continue the four individual buckets into the second generation Chargers. The upholstery is quite correct and the black vinyl is offset by a few well-chosen bits of chrome and stainless trim, aking for a very sleek interior that looks upscale. The gauges have slick silver bezels and bright orange pointers and the woodgrained steering wheel should look familiar to any Mopar fan. Recent black carpets, n excellent dash pad, nd a taut headliner add to the well-constructed vibe and the only notable deviation is the temperature gauge tucked down under the dash. And this car does sport its original AM radio and factory A/C, hich is fully functional and still uses R12 refrigerant for best results. In back, wo passengers get the same first class accommodations as the front seat folks and that full-length console is extremely cool. In back, here's also a massive trunk with matching black carpet that fits well.Under the hood, ou'll find that the original 361 has been swapped with a snarling 383. It's quite nicely maintained in the engine bay, ith lots of signs of recent maintenance and no major deviations from the factory look. Corporate turquoise paint on the block, heavy-duty air cleaner, nd those trick exhaust manifolds all work to make this an engine bay that shows extremely well. It starts easily and pulls the big fastback around with ease and offers a great V8 soundtrack complements of a recent single exhaust system that veers towards the luxury side of the scale. A TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission snaps through the gears seamlessly and that looks like a fresh gas tank hanging out back. Stock wheels with stylish hubcaps add to the sporty look and carry 215/75/14 whitewall radials all around.You won't see many of these at shows and the combination of luxury and performance is done quite well. We like the fastback look and these big Chargers wear it better than most. Call today!
