A collection of the best Dodge from the 1950s to the 1970s including the late ‘60s ‘Dodge Fever’ ad campaign. Engines include the 426 Hemi, 383, 440 and 340 V8 powered Scat Pack muscle cars. Models include Coronet, Super Bee, Monaco, Polara and R/T muscle cars.
The original 1966 Charger was a fastback roofed Coronet, with full width tail lights, disappearing headlights and full instrumentation with electroluminescent lighting. From 1968 the Charger got a unique new body that remains one of the all time great shapes. From 1971 another new body appeared that added weight and length but still looked muscular. Engines? Take your pick from 318 and on up to 383, 440 & 426 Hemi. Models - R/T 440, Charger 500 with either 426 or 440, and the ultra rare, ultra wild Charger 500 Daytona
Dodge took it’s time coming up with a direct competitor with the pony cars from Ford and Chevy - but when they did, they didn’t do it by halves - enter the Challenger. Low and w-i-d-e - the Challenger looked menacing standing still - and if it was packing 383, 426 or 440 cubes - it was ready to take on all comers. If you wanted muscle and luxury - you could order the SE with limousine style small rear window, vinyl roof and deluxe interior.
Introduced in 1967, even at over metres in length the Dart was referred to in the motoring press as ‘the baby Dodge’. Incredibly, the body style survived until 1975. But it’s the early muscular versions that are most loved now - the Dart GTS 340 and 383 V8 Superbees. Chrysler Australia sold Darts locally as VF & VG Valiant hardtops from ‘69 to ‘71
Intro’d in 1968 the Dodge Scat Pack included the Charger R/T, Coronet R/T and Dart GTS. Scat Pack cars got twin bumblebee stripes and special decals - Scat Pack cars had to be capable of running the 1/4 Mile in 14 seconds - a very exclusive club
