The main features were the bullet rockers, a left hand racing mirror, a stripe that followed the mid-body "sweep", and "turbine" wheel covers like the '67 and '68 DGS. It came in four basic packages. All had the unique rocker moldings and "Turbine" wheel covers.


Quote:
•Sports Special Value Package "A" - had the basics listed above.
•Sports Special Value Package "B" - includes the Décor Group along with the Sports Special items listed above, no handling package.
•Sports Special Value Package "C" - includes a special handling package along with the Sports Special items listed above.
•Sports Special Value Package "D" - includes both the Décor interior and the handling package along with the Sports Special items listed above.

Other options could be ordered along with the SS packages. The 351W 2V and 4V were available, as were the 390 4V and the CJ 428.
Just 8 428CJ Sports Specials were made.

1965 Chevelle L79 327/350HP Engine



Notice how the air cleaner differs from the 1966 Nova L79.

The only difference between the L79 and the L76 365HP engine was the camshaft used. The L79 had a hydralic while the L76 used a solid lifter - the same one used in the 375HP Fuelie engine.

1966 Chevy L79 350HP El Camino - Controversial Camino



Quote:
If you were to research the '64-67 Elky heritage, you wouldn't find a '66 offered with the L79 small-block V-8-a powerplant that was found in its cousin, the Chevelle, the lightweight Corvette, or the flyweight Chevy II. The motor was offered in the Elky in 1965 and 1967, however, so when Woodhouse looked under the hood, he was quite perplexed. Jon actually called on the help of various Chevrolet historians who claim his newly purchased El Camino was one of about 60 or so that were offered with the L79 motor. The car also came equipped with other features such as bucket seats and a Muncie M22 "Rock Crusher" four-speed transmission-considered unobtainium behind a small-block in '66.

Keepin' Pace - A '70 R/T Six Pack Pace Car





Quote:
'70 Dodge Challenger R/T convertibles are rare enough as it is. They made up less than two percent of the total production that year. Rarer still are R/T Six Packs. Ninety-nine R/T Six Packs came out of the Hamtramck, Michigan, plant, and only 38 had automatics. Of those 38, three are known to have had automatic on the column. One of them was purchased by Ontario Motor Speedway to be its pace car. How's that for rare?

1968 Dodge Daroo I Show Car








Quote:
Shown here is one of the most radical of these factory one-offs, an A-Body machine called the Daroo I. According to Juliano's extensive research on this particular Dodge, the car was created for display at major car shows during the '68 and '69 seasons, with Dodge's chief stylist, Bill Brownlie, laying the groundwork for its construction. The actual work was performed under contract to Chrysler by George Barris of North Hollywood, California, whose shop was considered one of the trendsetters in automotive modifications.

Daroo I began life as a red '67 Dart GT convertible, one of the few built that year with the 383 Magnum for power. The engine was left unmodified, as was the stock 111-inch wheelbase. However, Barris added a 17-inch nose extension to the body and removed 10 inches from the rear for a new, overall length of 202 inches. The convertible top was removed, a lowered windshield was added, and the body's beltline was redesigned, giving the car an overall height of 42 inches. Suspension changes were limited to cutting the leaf springs at the axle and mounting a single coil above the 831/44 axle housing.

Don Garlits' 1966 Hemi 4 Door Coronet







Quote:
Purportedly special ordered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, this car is fitted with the following options: Hemi engine (with two [(2) inline four-barrel carburetors), 727 automatic transmission, Sure-Grip 8¾ rearend equipped with 3.23:1 ratio ring and pinion gearing, and heavy duty .94-inch diameter front sway bar. Four wheel drum brakes. Of interest was the addition of a station wagon radiator shroud and Group 27 70-amp Heavy Duty battery
http://www.moparmusclemagazine.com/f...net/index.html

At the Barrett Jackson Scottsdale 2007, a car just like it sold for $660,000:



Quote:
This is the world's rarest 426-Hemi car. Between 1964-1971 approximately 11,000 cars were factory produced with the 426 Hemi option. All of those cars were 2 door cars including less than 200 convertibles, except for 5 cars. Three were ordered by American customers. One Export car and one Canadian car. One U.S. car is in Don Garlits Museum. The 2nd U.S. car is in Minnesota and this car is for sale at "No Reserve." Galen Govier inspected and listed this car in his Registry. This car retains its original engine, transmission, build sheet, certicard and window sticker. It also has the original title and DMV receipts back to 1966. Restoration just completed.

1966 Dodge Hemi Charger - Return Of The "Lawman



Quote:
After posting a career of drag race victories, Elton 'Al' Eckstrand, a lawyer by trade, retired from his competition driving role in late 1965. Despite his love of performance automobiles, he recognized that the advent of the latest musclecars could have an immense potential for disaster. Among the large number of American serviceman returning to civilian life after their tours of duty were many who did not realize the hazards 400hp machinery could have; these men were among the 50,000 fatalities a year on the highways at the time. So, working closely with upper management at Chrysler in early 1966, particularly Al's mentor Byron Nichols, Vice President, Corporate Sales for Chrysler, Eckstrand was given a '66 Hemi Charger to use in a planned tour of U.S. bases in Europe, beginning with a demonstration at the Santa Pod track in England in early June.

This unique machine was Dodge's first press pool Charger, an example driven by the media for a few weeks in the spring of 1966 prior to the car's formal introduction to the American public. Like the 426 Street Hemi motor, the Charger was new for that year, featuring fastback styling and a performance orientation. Under Eckstrand's control, the LL1 Dark Turquoise Metallic would serve well the purpose of introducing safe driving to civilians and soldiers alike. Unlike virtually any other car that came from the Chrysler Corporation, the example given to Al was never sold through a dealer and, to date, has never been formally titled. Noted Chrysler historian and documentation specialist Galen Govier has confirmed this information based on the car's IBM build record from the Chrysler Historical Foundation; it is indeed very unique, as even cars for upper management at the corporation were always processed at the dealership level.
Lots of period photos at this link and more back story:

1970 Hemi Challenger R/T Convertible



Quote:
There are a lot of things that set this '70 Hemi Challenger R/T convertible apart from the crowd. The fact that only nine of them were built for domestic consumption makes it super rare for starters. The color combination--Sublime with a white top, black-out hood, and black R/T stripe package--grabs your attention. The option list includes surprises such as power windows and the seemingly out-of-place rear luggage rack. The Hemi with automatic trans--four of the nine so equipped--was shipped with power steering, but also with manual brakes. That's fine for a drag car, but you wouldn't order a convertible if racing was your plan.
