Dodge 'officially' jumped into the muscle car race with the Coronet
Super Bee in 1968. It was an instant success, mainly because MOPAR
had been building performance cars for years, just not marketed
them as muscle cars. This 1966 Dodge Charger 383 is a perfect
example of an earlier MOPAR performance machine. Our fully restored
(2016) 1966 Charger is a rare classic, even more noteworthy because
of its 383/4-speed drivetrain configuration. This beautiful Dodge
has been with its current owner for the last 14 years. It has
received a professional respray of Bright Red, all original
chrome/stainless is in excellent condition and the factory spinner
wheel covers are stunning. Its totally refreshed vinyl interior is
also in excellent condition. There is a full set of factory gauges
including tach, wood-grain wheel, console w/pistol-grip Hurst
shifter, factory AM radio (currently inop) and plenty of space
behind the driver with a folding rear seat. According to the owner,
the 383ci 'B-Wedge' is said to be the numbers-matching engine. It
was rated by Chrysler at 325hp and sits in a spotless engine
compartment. The wedge retains factory components except for an
Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold and Holley 4-barrel carburetor
in place of the original Carter. It is backed by Chrysler's
venerable A-833 4-speed manual transmission. Like many MOPARs of
the era the Charger is equipped with manual steering and manual
4-wheel drum brakes. Hoses, belts, battery and exhaust have all
been serviced. Our Charger strikes a nice stance on factory 14"
steel wheels with Vercelli Classic whitewall radials. This is a
rare Dodge - a luxury musclecar and a bona fide classic. The
Charger is correct and impressive. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
