Mopar has teased "something big" for this month's 2018 SEMA show, and it's residing in a first-generation Dodge Charger. The video shows a pair of paw prints stamped over with some rather large prints instead. In the distance, we're treated to a wonderful chugging noise from a loping camshaft before a top-down view brings the classic Dodge Charger into the frame. The video ends on a smokey note with the muscle car performing a burnout. While we're not zoologists here at Motor Authority, the rather large prints lend themselves to a massive beast in the animal kingdom. And one, in particular, seems appropriate: the elephant. Recall, Chrysler's 426-cubic inch V-8 Hemi engine earned the colloquial nickname of "elephant engine" when it entered production in 1964. The engine only found a home in 11,000 factory cars as Chrysler quickly realized the mighty motor was quite costly to build. Recipients of the 426 Hemi V-8 were the Dodge Dart, Plymouth Fury and Dodge Coronet. By 1966 the "Street … [Read more...] about Mopar SEMA teaser shows big-power original Dodge Charger

In 1971, Bobby Isaac and his K&K crew took their #71 Dodge Charger Daytona and set a couple dozen land speed records at Bonneville. A few years later, that very car was sold for a mere $25,000. Perhaps even more interesting, the story of how it went from a pile of parts sitting outdoors to a museum-quality restoration is preserved for posterity in an obscure IRS tax court ruling. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below The “K&K” of the racing team was K&K Insurance, a company owned by Nord and Teddy Krauskopf. The Krauskopfs made a name for themselves insuring racetracks around the country and then by fielding a very successful Grand National NASCAR team. With Bobby Isaac at the wheel in 1970, K&K won the national championship. And one of the cars he drove that year was the winged Charger Daytona.
