    Hello guys,

    Some of you may know me through my thread of the restoration of my dad's 69 Roadrunner, but here I am to announce you that my elder brother and I recently bought a 1966 Charger from Mike a new member here on this forum.
    The add was put on line here in the Mopar for sale section by Terry also a member of FBBO thanks to him.

    This is a 383 4 speed with 8 3/4 rear end 742 case with a 3.23 SG.
    A lot of fun to drive, the car is even better from what I had expected it to be so very happy. No rust whatsoever all original except once repainted in the correct color and new interior I presume.
    And new exhaust system 2.5" from flowmaster.
    It is totally different from the Runner we have lol only have to drive it and enjoy this time!

    Here comes some pics

                      Thank you all of you guys for your comments!

                      I’m absolutely in love with that dashboard with its luminescent light!
                      One of my favorite American car dashboard!

                      The cars is great, goes straight with no hands on the car.
                      Sounds awesome!

                      And we are the proud third owner since 66.
                      The car still has the service manual in the glove box.
                      It was an Arizona car.

                      And a fun and cool fact is that the car came out on May 26 of 1966 just like my dad’s Roadrunner May 26 of 1969 ^^

                      Can’t wait to finish the bird so we can enjoy driving both cars at the same time!

                      I have a 66 and I enjoy every minute in it.

                              I keep looking at the shots of the car in Paris.
                              Seems surreal.
                              Nice angles.
                              Very professional.
