Roadkill Builds a Mad Max Style 1968 Charger

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!

Reader’s Rides: Pete Unger’s 1967 Dodge Coronet 440 Wagon

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. Just for the record, some of my friends and wife don’t understand why I bought a wagon. Theres something really tuff about a old souped up wagon that grabs my eye. 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.

Neglected Field Find: Five 1962 Chryslers

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.

Vintage Mopar NASCAR Photo of the Week: Bobby Allison/Rossi 1969 Dodge Charger 500

This is a picture of the Bobby Allison 1969 Dodge Charger 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.  This car was owned and built by Rossi Automotive Engineering.  You can see Bobby putting the bumble bee stripe himself on the back of the car–imagine a current NASCAR driver putting his own decals on the car!
