1965 Dodge Hemi Coronet A990 Recreation
Consigned from the Ed Randash Collection
A990 Lightweight body specifications
426 Race Hemi
3-Speed Automatic Transmission
In the 1960s, the Big Three Auto Manufacturers were ”duking” it out at the race track, each looking for the right combination of drive train configuration and the body to surround that power plant. The vehicles produced, while meeting the stock car association sanctioned drag racing rules and requirements, came to be known as lightweights.
Chrysler’s version of the lightweight achieved great results on the race tracks. For the body, everything that did not contribute to a speedy trip down the quarter mile was deleted, including the heater, radio, carpets, trim panels, clothing hooks and back seat. The only outward change besides the scooped hood was a one-inch shorter wheelbase. The power plant was the revered 426 Hemi Charger V8. The transmission options were either the 3-speed automatic or the 4-speed manual.
The car presented at auction, built by Ed Randash, to an exacting standard, is an amazing tribute to the Dodge Coronet Hemi A990. Historical documents were consulted during the build on this car and the time and resources were committed to do it right. One must see this car to truly appreciate!
The Dodge Coronet with the 440 Magnum V8 and four speed is a highly coveted muscle car among Mopar fans.
This 1966 Dodge Coronet was owned and performance modified by renowned Chrysler engineer Tom Hoover, known as “the godfather of the 426 Hemi.”
