Early Rides is raffling off a sweet 1969 Road Runner. It features a 440 6 bbl, 727, Dana 60, four wheel disc brakes and an A12 style lift off hood. Tickets are only $20.00 each with proceeds raised helping to support three charities; Wounded Warrior Homes, Veterans First Orange County and 1st Battalion, 1st Marines Foundation.

You were expecting a concours restoration, maybe? The latest episode of Hot Rod’s Roadkill finds Freiburger and Finnegan building a Charger from a rolling shell, a motorhome 440 and their Fury’s 727. It took six months–not their usual six days–and in their opinion, it’s the best episode of Roadkill ever. It looks mean and sounds meaner. Video after the jump!
This 1969 Charger in General Lee livery was the victim of a house fire in 2011. Down but not out, the owner is rebuilding with the goal of jumping Fury sedans by next summer. Here’s hoping that the south will rise again. See the story at Street Legal TV. More pics and a video after the jump!
Find a variety of different shots of this beautiful 1968 Hemi Charger at Motor Trend Classic. Now that’s proper wallpaper. It sure beats a picture of a bunch of hot air balloons!
I think this is the first wagon we have featured on Reader’s Rides. Here’s the word from Pete:
My name I Pete, I’m out of Amityville, New York. This is Rocket, my 1967 Dodge Coronet 440 wagon with a 383 under the hood, posi rear and rotor front brakes.

I have a friend who works for DMV and he ran a search for other Dodge coronet wagons registered on Long Island. He found out that I have the only ’67 coronet 440 wagon (that is registered) on all of Long Island.

We just found these five 1962 Chrysler’s in Bellingham, Washington. Not sure why somebody would let these things sit in a swampy area for 15 years but it happened. We just saved these from going to the crusher and the cars are:
- 1962 Chrysler 300H
- 1962 Chrysler 300 Sport 413 2 Door Hardtop
- 1962 Chrysler 300 2 Door Hardtop with a 383
- 1962 Chrysler Newport that is an original black car
- 1962 Chrysler New Yorker 4 Door
See more pictures below. What would you do with these? They are pretty rough.
The cigar smoking, drag racing Dick Landy put a straight axle from an A100 van under his 1964 Dodge 330 and radically altered the wheelbase to create a drag car that was referred to as a funny car because, well, it looked funny. The rest is history. Read a piece on his racing career in Hemmings Motor News.
While not an original Max Wedge car, that engine compartment is still a thing of beauty! It’s purported to have been a Max Wedge race car for most of its life. Today it’s a retired race horse built to enjoy cruise nights. See more detail at Bring A Trailer. More pics after the jump!
