Miss our last post on the Kee collection? James G. Murphy will hold the estate sale of Charles Kee on May 8 and 9 in Brothers, Oregon. Charles has a huge collection of Mopar cars and parts and we got the opportunity to go out and look at some of the stuff. Read more about the 1966 Chrysler Newport in this collection after the jump! (We want to apologize that some of the pictures in this post are not very good–it was 35 degrees and raining with a 30 MPH wind when we took these, our camera got some water on it a few times).
Barn Finds has discovered a not-too-rough survivor Hemi Challenger on eBay. With only 50,852 miles on the clock and reportedly stored for the last 25 years (the cars first 18 years were spent in California), this could be one rare find. Follow the eBay auction as the bidding enters six figures without hitting the reserve. More pics after the jump as well as a decoded list of the cars two fender tags!
Yep. The Challenger name first appeared in 1959 as the Dodge Silver Challenger. The limited production any-color-as-long-as-its-silver two door was quite striking for its time. Hooniverse has selected it as a nominee for its Obscure Muscle Car Garage section. Cast your vote now. More pics after the jump!
It’s also the elephant motor’s 50th anniversary year to boot! Find some great Hemi stories at Engine Labs. Remember to wear orange.

When your father hosts a Youtube show called Hot Rod Hunt, you know good things will follow. Rick Moore purchased a barn find 1970 Charger R/T and gave it to his 13 year old son, Ricky, who’s favorite car is the 68-70 Charger. As it was a drag car, the 440 and 727 have very few miles and the car has only limited modifications. Ward Cleaver could learn a few things from this guy! Find the story at Street Legal TV.
