My first car was a 1966 383 Charger with a 4 speed. They aren't the fastest in the Dodge line up, but they are impressive and fun. My advice: keep the one owner car original. At car shows, it's nice to see examples that are day one original. Forget the 440, a fresh 383 is a strong runner. If you have to, get a 438 stroker kit... or shine this one while looking for an emm code 440 car.
