under the hood

August 9th, 2017 by admin

In the 70s, the car was fitted with a genuine 1970 NASCAR 426ci Hemi by its previous owner, who at the time worked for Ray Nichels – former head of Chrysler’s NASCAR program.

While the engine’s original intake is no longer fitted, it retains the genuine X-Code Chrysler Racing block and heads, and now runs a single 1050cfm Holley carb and direct-port nitrous system.

40 years since it was set aside, and the last 20 have been on a lift…. just waiting for the money to be available to get it back into running condition, the way it was when he bought it at age 16

1969 Charger 500, the vary rare and highly sought after aerodynamic homolgamation special didn’t have nice rims. It got crappy hub caps. From a Monaco or Polara… because this press fleet car wasn’t going in front of the press with dog dish hub caps.

Getting the Hemi meant that the car would get 15 inch rims, but the highly desireable Kelsey Hayes cast center styled wheels were recalled for being lemons, forever after known as the “Recall Wheels” They broke under normal use. So?

So they looked around at what they could do to make it look half decent, for a 15 inch steel plain rim, and voila. Right out of the parts bin. The Deluxe hub cap.

1st image Iv’e seen to validate that there ever was a Don Garlits Speed Shop

Just 2 weeks ago I posted a Charger that had been upgraded at his speed shop, and that is the only time besides this photo that I’ve ever seen his speed shop mentioned

they only offered the 440 6 pack in chargers in 1970, and only 86 were made, only 29 had a stick shift, and only this one was hopped up by the Don Garlits speed shop

After getting into the Army with the 82 Airborne, just in time for Vietnam, Chris Rodrigues was so impressed with the cars in the movie Bullitt that he went to the local Dodge dealership and checked off the boxes to have a special RT/SE 440 six pack Super Trak Pack Charger get assembled for him.

He took delivery the day after Christmas, 1969, and after raising some hell with it, had his sister car sit it for him, and bring it over to the Garlits speed shop, and then he went to college, used it for commuting and carpooling, and eventually put it up in the garage.

His son never got a ride in it. Born too late to ride in it before it became a permanent garage fixture, he only heard of it’s many troubles with carbs, heads, etc… as Chris had a couple false starts over the 24 years of storing it and hoping to get it back on the road.

Then the son found a wonderful woman, planned a wedding, etc, and mentioned to his bride how cool it would be to get a ride from church to reception in the garage Dodge. She mentioned THAT tidbit of information to her soon to be mom in law, who told Chris he now had a deadline, a blank check, and a mission

POW, that lit a firecracker. And before you is the result, rebuilt, refreshed, and probably louder than churchbells as it broke silence for the first time in Chris’s son’s life to pull up to the front of the church to whisk of the newlyweds.

TTI headers, Edelbrock heads with a port n polish, Comp cams, MSD ignition, 2 1/2 inch exhaust, x pipe, and Dynomax mufflers…. must sound fantastic.

Sources differ on it’s originality, but this Bengal Charger is a good reminder that in the muscle car era, dealerships made some of their own models cooler than the factory

this is Rich Grushinski from Scott Township, PA and Chrysler Power Magazine says it’s an original, but the local newspaper says it is a tribute

The second generation Charger was all-new for 1968 and so were the Cincinnati Bengals. Dodge dealer Tom Kneer decided to create his own special edition Dodge Charger in the team’s colors and learned from the team HQ that the team’s uniforms would be black with orange and white stripes and helmets would be bright orange with black “Bengal” lettering.

So he placed the order with Dodge for 50 1968 Chargers. Tom scanned through the paint samples in Dodge’s color guide and discovered an orange used for Michigan state fleet vehicles that he dubbed Tiger Orange.

Black vinyl tops and dual black stripes around the trunk rounded out Tom’s specifications for his Bengal Charger. Most cars were ordered with the 318 or 383, none were ordered with the 426 Hemi.
He had a few 6 cylinder cars built for marketing purposes and an estimated 10 – 12 R/Ts.

Because Tom was purchasing so many cars, Chrysler agreed to throw in the black Sport Stripes for free. In 1968, Chrysler put Sport Stripes on the Charger R/T only. Since most of the Bengals were not R/Ts, obviously, an exception was made. For this reason and because they were free, the stripe does not appear on the broadcast sheet but instead was part of the special order processing along with the orange paint.

Tom ordered 100 chromed

It doesn’t matter that the engine in the truck is just for looks, the kids are going to love this 68 Charger

the 1964 Charger Show Car. This car was based on the Polara, and was supposed to be 426 wedge powered, but, they knew no one would be able to tell it was only a dressed up 383.
