my name is Mark and here is a page on my Dodge Challenger A66.
It is finished in Hemi Orange paint with black upholstery. The Challenger
is a matching numbers car and has a 340 V8 engine with a Holly 4
barrel. The A66 340 came as standard with the Performance Pack,
so it's basically an R/T with a small block engine.
car has spent most of it's life in the USA and was imported to the
UK in 2005.
car was fully restored in the states, including and engine rebuild
and is in excellent condition..
A service was
carried out by Tornado Automotive. They also fitted a new steering
coupling and 2 new propshaft U/Js.
was smoking on start up so it was decided to carry out a top engine
rebuild. It became evident the valve shaft seals were missing, so
these were reinstated. The valves and guides were all new so it
was clear the engine had been rebuild recently.
I fitted a high
quality Sony stereo to the Challenger, with Pioneer parcel shelf
Christmas arrived and I was given nice new American
Racing alloy centre caps. The look much better than the existing
plastic metalized ones.
I primered and
spray painted the front grill and head lamp surrounds satin black,
as I didn't think the argent silver grill suited the car. 4 coats
of primer and 4 coats of satin black. The head lamp surrounds were
finished in satin black Hammerite to protect them from stone chips.
