Hooniverse reviews the Challenger Scat Pack aka “the boulevard cruiser, tire destroyer, noise making awesome machine”. We couldn’t have put it better ourselves. Video after the jump!
This is no way to treat a winged warrior. “Gonna fix her up someday…” Find more info at Cars In Barns.
The awesome Hellcat and and Scat Pack Challengers have been getting all the press lately, but let’s not forget that the entire Challenger lineup saw major improvements for the 2015 model year. And if you are primarily interested in an affordable, fun, efficient and stylish package that you can drive every day, you should definitely consider the 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT Plus. Mopar Blog had a week with a beautiful TorRed example and came away very impressed.
While certainly not in the best of shape, this Barracuda is one rare fish. Formula S production in 1969 consisted of 2034 fastbacks, 100 convertibles and 423 notchbacks. Of the notchbacks, 325 were 340’s and 98 383’s. Total Mod Tops for all Barracuda coupes in 1969 was reportedly 937. (Numbers courtesy of Mike Mueller’s The Complete Book of Classic Dodge and Plymouth Muscle). How many of those 325 small blocks were Mod Tops? Probably not a lot. We hope somebody brings this old girl back to life. Find it here on eBay.
Ah, the humble K car. Say what you want, it saved Chrysler. No K car, no Hellcat. We’ve come a long way. MotorWeek’s back-in-the-day video review after the jump.
Lots of auctions are going on during auction week in Phoenix. Barrett-Jackson and Russo and Steele are the biggest but Gooding is pretty big, too. They tend to have more high end and European cars but they had a couple of Mopars. Of course we had to check them out…
One Mopar was a 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. Was not so impressed with this car as it was missing its fender tag and was a 440-4 car. It is a 4-speed car though. Auction estimate was $80-100k!
Here are some highlights from the Russo and Steele auction from the Wednesday preview.
This is a 1970 Hemi Superbird and probably the best Mopar at Russo.
