AUCTION: Beautiful Dark Green Metallic-Colored 1966 Dodge HEMI Charger!

The Original HEMI Charger Goes Up On Bring A Trailer...

The famed 7.0-liter (426 cubic-inch) HEMI V8 came into the hands of the public in 1966. The powerful “elephant” motor produced an underrated 425 horsepower and 490 lb.-ft. of torque by the SAE. The engine was a farce competitor on the street.

One of those vehicles that could be optioned with the HEMI in 1966, was the first-generation Dodge Charger. The fastback four-seater midsized coupe was based on the popular Coronet and propelled the muscle car movement for the Dodge brand. Now one of those famed cars is up for grabs on the popular automotive auction website, BringATrailer.com.

This Dark Green Metallic (GG1) 1966 Dodge HEMI Charger was originally delivered to Nealis Motors of Wilmington, Delaware. It was hidden by the original owner from his wife, as it was intended for drag racing. Properly explains why that car was optioned with the four-speed A833 manual transmission.

According to the listing, the car underwent refurbishment work during its prior ownership. It was acquired by the current owner in April 2022. Subsequent work involved overhauling the starter, repairing the retractable headlight mechanisms, flushing the fluids, and replacing the exhaust heat-riser tubes, transmission reverse detent, and wheel cylinders.
