The design of the Viper concept 1967 came from the idea of how the car would be if he had appeared in the 60`s to compete with the corvette among others, for example. From that idea, I did a great research on materials and construction techniques of the 60s, so that the car was as faithful as possible to what could be done in 1967. Large circular headlamps, 15in rims, a lot of chrome and surface of the car with enough curves to follow the design trend of the season. Are also present in the concept, not only dodgeâ€™s line of 60â€™s, but always escaping to a more sporting side of a car that did not exist at that time in the dodge, besides the traditional lines of striking viper 90s, like the curved roof , huge hood, with the driver driving almost on the rear axle, air-intake in the hood, and side air out-take in arc, besides the issues of flashlights and lanterns. Under the hood, put the 440-MAGNUM which was used in the challenger R / T, but modified to gain some more HP, thus leaving aside the V10, which would, in my view, a bit impractical at the time of production, bringing much the cost of the project and the car impossible to really fight for the super-sports market in 1967.
Inside, I used a lot of chrome and leather, with mahogany wood on the stearing-wheel while respecting which could put the luxury in a car like this in 1967, and bearing in mind that, above all, viper and a car primarily to generate emotion, not as a luxury car.
The options of colors, dominated by warm tones, as in the early 90s viper, with several shades of yellow, red and orange, besides the traditional black (in this case, a black pearls), and traditional colors of the season as blue metallic, dark green and lead, besides the wine, which in my view, identify the viper 1967 and identifies the red today.
In my studies, the basic price of the car in 1967 would be $ 4110 U.S. dollars, making it truly a great competitor to the Chevrolet Corvette.
