Did you know . . .

After approx. January 1969, both Tuxedo Black and Butternut Yellow were no longer RPO no charge colors for the 1969 Camaro. You could still order them but there was a $12.95 additional charge

It is interesting to note that though this 1967 ad for Goodyear tires was popular in magazines, Goodyear never made a combination of RWL and Red Stripe tire.

But they did make a RWL and Blue Stripe tire for the 1966 Barracuda Formula S

The moniker "RAMCHARGER" that Dodge used for the Super Stock Max Wedge 413 and 426 was the combination of two words: RAM for the induction system, commonly called a Cross Ram Induction (each 4bbl feeds the opposite side of the engine) as shown below though it did orginiate on the 1960 D500 Ram induction using the 30" long runners on each side with the 4 bbl carbs literally at the fenders edge.

The other term CHARGER is short for SUPERCHARGER which is what happens when using this type of setup. The fuel is literally "rammed" into the combustion chambers at a higher rate of volume than say twin 4 bbl carbs inline once the engine reaches the rpm point that the manifold has has been "tuned" for, in this case about 5800 RPM which was perfect for Drag Racing.





This induction system worked so well that it topped the 1964, 1965 and 1968 Race HEMI

Chrysler's use of Dodge A100 van seats with aluminum mounting brackets saved 70 lbs over a bench seat for the 1964/1965 Race Hemi Super Stock cars





BTW, these seats were not adjustable. If you had longer legs, you had to remount them further back than the factory mounting.

There is a long-standing myth that the 1962–1964 Max Wedge and ’64, ’65 and ’68 Race HEMI package cars were not legal for use on public roads. That’s not true. Each was fully equipped with a 50-state-legal muffled exhaust, functional lights, turn signals, door and trunk locks and windshield wiper(s). This street equipment was strictly required by the sanctioning bodies for acceptance into their Stock and Super Stock competition eliminator categories. That said, Dodge was not seeking to flood the highways with these special vehicles. Each carried a specific warning sticker to release Chrysler Corp. from liability. The sticker read: NOTICE This car is equipped with a 426 cu. in. engine (and other special equipment). This car is intended for use in supervised acceleration trials and is not intended for highway or general passenger car use. Accordingly, THIS VEHICLE IS SOLD “AS IS,” and the 12-month or 12,000-mile vehicle warranty coverage and 5-year or 50,000-mile power train warranty coverage does not apply to this vehicle.

The 1964 and 1965 editions of the 426 HEMI take a unique rocker cover and gasket. These items are designed to fit the unique 1964 and 1965 cylinder heads and do not interchange with the far more prevalent 1966-up HEMI engines





You ask why? The answer is ............. Power Steering. Engineers figured that many people would want it on their 426 Street Hemi. It was decided that it was cheaper to recast the drivers side head to indent it in the front to make room for the power steering pump then it was to redesign the pump itself. You can see the indent on this 1966 HEMI

The 1964 and 1965 Race Hemi Dodges used a 90 lb truck battery mounted at the rear of the trunk to aid in acceleration. This differed from the regular 50 lb battery mounted over the right rear wheel on the 1962 and 1963 Max Wedge cars.

The 1970 Chrysler 340 Trans Am engine block was drilled for 4 bolt mains, but it only came with 2 bolt mains. Those that raced in the the SCCA Trans Am changed the main caps when building their engines. Chrysler figured it wasn't necessary for street use.
