When it comes to Dodge Chargers and their pecking order, it’s usually the second generation from 1968 to 1970 that gets the most attention, then the third generation from 1971 to 74. The Fourth generation from 75 to 78 went the way of most vehicles in the mid-70s, luxury over substance, but it’s the first gen. from 66 to 67 that have all the embryonic design features that made the next two generations classics.

This ’66 examples as have the same owner for the last 30 years and is said to be 1 of only 2809 built with 69,391 actual miles. It originally had a 383ci. which is available, but now has a 440ci. It’s unclear if the 383ci. is an additional cost on top of the car or not. Either way, the car isn’t running at this time. Not surprisingly, as the engine image looks like it’s been dug up from a lake.

The car is said to have some rare features, ‘Rare factory air-conditioning, Powersteering, Original “Bright red” car still wearing it’s original paint, Door jambs as well, Original white bucketseat interior, Center console w/4 speed floorshift, Factory tachometer, Gauges, and clock, Hideaway headlights.’ The listing also has the Fender tag decoded, which is always a nice addition to any listing as below.

The car is not in completely rundown shape, but will need checking out from top to toe to see what needs replacing, welding up or just needs a scrub up. Lots of potential here, which could be quite easily returned back to original or made into a cool restomod.
