In late 1961, new President Lynn Townsend chose to go all in on
creating 'competitive visibility' for Chrystler. Among these
performance-focused programs was active involvement in drag racing.
Featured here is one of the vehicles that Chrysler built in 1963
for that specific purpose, a Max Wedge-powered Dodge 330
Lightweight. Holding a 426 CID engine thanks to FIA/ACCUS new
7-liter rule, it features Chrysler's unique cross-ram intake with
two 4-barrel carburetors, monstrous 13.5:1 compression, special
heads, and heavy-duty internals. In fact, it did so well that
Dodge's 'Hot One' package won Mr. Stock Eliminator at both the NHRA
Winternationals and Indy Nationals in 1963, as well as numerous
other titles. The car offered here was one of the 34 lightweight
330s produced in 1963, featuring factory aluminum fenders, bumpers,
scooped aluminum hood, a trunk-mounted battery, and other special
adaptations. Ordered new through Alston Motors, Inc. in Tuscaloosa,
Alabama, this car is in as-raced condition with a believed-original
490 miles. Painted in Polar White with red cloth and vinyl
bench-seat interior, the date-correct engine is backed by the
legendary A727 TorqueFlite transmission with its dashboard-mounted
push button shifter. The car now rides on vintage-type Cragar
performance wheels as well. Estimated appraisal value at
$135,000-$165,000 and we're selling it at a fraction of that price.
