Hi, my name is Mark and here is a page on my Dodge Challenger A66. It is finished in Hemi Orange paint with black upholstery. The Challenger is a matching numbers car and has a 340 V8 engine with a Holly 4 barrel. The A66 340 came as standard with the Performance Pack, so it's basically an R/T with a small block engine.

The car has spent most of it's life in the USA and was imported to the UK in 2005.

The car was fully restored in the states, including and engine rebuild and is in excellent condition..

September 2018

A service was carried out by Tornado Automotive. They also fitted a new steering coupling and 2 new propshaft U/Js.

October 2018

The Challenger was smoking on start up so it was decided to carry out a top engine rebuild. It became evident the valve shaft seals were missing, so these were reinstated. The valves and guides were all new so it was clear the engine had been rebuild recently.

November 2018

I fitted a high quality Sony stereo to the Challenger, with Pioneer parcel shelf speakers.

December 2018

Christmas arrived and I was given nice new American Racing alloy centre caps. The look much better than the existing plastic metalized ones.

January 2019

I primered and spray painted the front grill and head lamp surrounds satin black, as I didn't think the argent silver grill suited the car. 4 coats of primer and 4 coats of satin black. The head lamp surrounds were finished in satin black Hammerite to protect them from stone chips.
