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,
which included heavy duty suspension, 340 engine (E55), E60x15 inch
raised white letter tires (U82), performance hood, heavy duty brakes,
heavy duty suspension (S13), Bumble Bee paint stripe (may be deleted),
Scat Pack (bee) decal and the wheel lip moulding were deleted.
car was basically an R/T with a small block 340 engine.
Challenger 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 a body off restorateion
and an engine rebuild. It 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. The valves and guides were all new so it was clear the
engine had been rebuild recently. And the head didn't need skimming
either. However the valve stem seals were missing, so these were
I fitted a high
quality Sony stereo to the Challenger, with Pioneer parcel shelf
speakers. Sounds superb!
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.
