My Stepdads 66 Charger 383 Hi-PO

Average User Rating:
5/5,
  • My stepdad and I are primarily into the C-bodies. (I'm also on FCBO) However, we have one B-body. It's a 1966 Dodge Charger Fast-back. 383 High Performance, Factory air conditioning, and power windows. It still has its original Certi-card. The car was bought new out of Santa Monica, CA on Jan 7, 1966. It was sitting in the previous owners garage and had not run since 1987. It does run and drive now.(not great). Brakes are "shot". My stepdad bought it on August 14, 2015. The car is WW1 White with a red interior. The plan is to keep the red interior, paint the car silver, put a modern A/C unit in, and put on Magnum 500 wheels. (Make a clone from the 1966 Charger brochures) Please let me know if you, or someone you know has parts.

    My dad had one from Arizona back in the 80's. Factory silver, red interior, 361 4spd. I think 412 were made like that. Its long gone... In early 2000's I had almost the same car, silver, red interior, 383, a/c, power windows....got separated, had nowhere to keep it to stay in its condition, it was nice!. Still bummed

      Albert, The parts I really need are a front bumper WITHOUT guards, and a 383 4bbl air conditioning radiator. Not sure what else I really need. If I need more I'll let you know.

    Good luck with your project. Parts are going to be a challenge... but I'm preaching to the choir :thumbsup:

    Great project.
    I would suggest upgrading the master cylinder to a 67 up dual for safety.
    Even so the drums don't work great on this car.
    Also replace the power steering hose, it's likely to blow up and create a fire hazard.
    Finally, magnum 500 wheels were not available until 67 (but a great look).
    Keep us posted! Finding parts is tough.
