Again for 2015, the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation has teamed up with AJ Hiers to offer up one beautiful Mopar for their annual fundraising campaign. This years grand prize is a 1968 Dodge Charger R/T powered by a 426 Hemi! Your support also buys you tickets to their barbeque featuring all the BBQ you can eat, free drinks and desert as well as supporting a great cause! Go to ALZBBQ for more info and to purchase tickets.
Lucas Marquardt takes us on a video tour of a veritable field of dreams in the back lot of an undisclosed location. It consists of a 1969 Coronet R/T 440, a 1968 Hemi Charger, a 1969 Hemi Charger, a 1969 Charger 500, a 1968 318 Charger and two first generation Chargers! Unfortunately, of the 68’s and 69’s, only one has a powertrain; a big block in place of it’s original 426. Find more info at Street Legal TV. Video after the jump!
BarnFinds spied this 383 Charger on eBay. The seller admits to some work being required but then also introduces it as an easy restoration. No reserve bidding has already passed $4,400. Now, how about that Road Runner in the background? Follow the eBay bidding here. More pics after the jump!
Take one Angela Dorian, 1968 Playboy Playmate of the Year, add a Playmate Pink AMC AMX, Roman Polanski, Charles Manson and a Walther PPK used in a murder attempt and you got one heck of a story for the Saturday morning car show! Jay Leno gets the whole story from the car’s second owner, Mark Melvin. Video after the jump!
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.
Here’s an illustration that Hot Rod Magazine used in their review of a 1968 Plymouth Road Runner in their November 1967 issue. Back then Editor Eric Dahlquist wrote:
“And that, pal, is what Road Runners are made of. It’s a supercar in every sense of the term but one—price. That’s why you’re going to love it. The accessories, a very few, like the Hemi, are there, but the basic package will blow the doors off almost anything in the asphalt jungle, and some of those cats cost a grand more. You can do a lot with that extra thousand dollars.”
Pretty cool, huh? Via Hot Rod
“All go, no show” is a fitting description for this plain jane Road Runner coupe (unless you rightly consider Hemi badging as a “show” item). A two-owner car, it has been with owner number two since 1975 and is still mostly a survivor car. This one is a driver. Find more info on this rare bird at Mopar Max Magazine. More pics after the jump!
We showed you this car last year. Now it’s back and badder than ever. But even with over 2,000 hours in that body–which is six inches wider than stock–it’s still not quite done… Oh, and regarding the motor: the 9.4 liter Hemi is rated at over 2,000 horsepower. More pics after the jump!
