The 1966 Charger was successful, but rarely did it get modified. For one thing, its production of just 37,344 models has made it far less easy to track one down, compared to the later restyled 1968 model. However, early versions like this can get more attention when given the right treatment. This one's torsion bar front suspension has been lowered one spline, and the rear springs have been reshaped for a 2- and 1.5-inch (50- and 38-mm) drop respectively. The stock engine has long gone, and now in its place sits a 1978 Dodge Ram truck 360ci (5.9-liter), which has been upgraded with Mopar parts (Plymouth, Dodge and Chrysler's performance arm), including a high-lift camshaft, four-barrel carburettor and an Edelbrock. The wheels used are 17-inch (432mm) Center Line billets, with 215/45s and 255/45 BF Goodrich Comp ZR radials to maximize the handling ability.
