For Sale: 1966 Dodge Charger in Lavergne, Tennessee

$38,995  

Vehicle Description

This is the car that launched the legend. The 1966 Dodge Charger is the first year for the now iconic name. With the sweeping fastback lines, striking color combo, unique interior, and huge 440 V8 under the hood, you're looking at a terrific classic with serious muscle car fun.

This is the kind of car we're all on the lookout for. It's a first-year Charger, and they were positioned to be both distinct and premium. This seems to show that off perfectly in a sophisticated shade of dark blue. It's an upgrade later in life, and there's a quality luster that shows off the car's unique design. The fastback was great for racing, and it also just was part of the styling that made Mopar some of the meanest cars around. This attitude continues on the wide front end, Mag-style Mopar Road wheels, and plenty of rear fender flare. Plus, the Charger-specific badging, wide chrome bumpers, a one-piece rear, and the full-length trim line are all reminders that this was a pricey coupe when new. In total, it's a package that is out to grab attention, and this one has been given the right investments to do it correctly.

The black interior further highlights the premium feeling these upper-level Chargers received. The designers made something quite unique, giving everyone their own individual bucket seat with a center console in-between. The texture of the upholstery, freshness of the carpeting, and quality of the door panels come together to deliver a very well-presented time-capsule like package. Even the AM radio is still there for display. The gauges are absolute works of art with aircraft-inspired dials and have a very modern glow at night. Plus, items like the shifter and well-placed auxiliary gauge trio are a clear sign you're going to like what's under the hood.

The engine bay is filled with 440 cubic inches of big block power. This was an upgrade later in life to the big-dog Mopar V8, but they made sure to do it right using an era-correct block. There are even nice stock-style details, like the bold orange motor and the callouts on the air grabber. There are also the right upgrades, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock polished valve covers, MSD ignition, and Taylor plug wires. It's a well-done package that fires up easily and makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust. And you have complete control of the power and rumble thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Add in good driving features like power brakes and wide BF Goodrich T/As, and you know this is a quality car that also likes to have you feel the road.

You don't get many opportunities to obtain such a rare and nice example of muscle car history. So it's time to call today or regret missing out on this coupe tomorrow!
