1964 Dodge Hemi Charger Concept Car hits the auction

The 1964 Dodge hemi Charger Concept Car represents the first Dodge using the Charger nameplate. The vehicle was developed at the end of 1963, somewhere on Polara underpinnings and, with it, Chrysler’s objectives were to showcase the newest engine at the time, the now iconic 426-cubic inch Hemi V8. In its over 47-year existence, this beautiful and rare car model is soon going to be auctioned on January 20 at this year’s Automobiles of Arizona event, which takes place at Arizona Biltmore Resort&Spa. Although official pricing has not been released, we do remember that last time, in 2007, it fetched US $1.1 million. The 1964 concept car, which can currently be found on the late John M. O’Quinn’s estate, has been restored by Fran Roxas, a multiple award-winner, and features an original Hemi engine, delivering 600+ hp. Among its other features, we found it important to share the 3-speed automatic transmission, independent torsion bar front and rear semi-elliptic leaf spring suspension and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The car is in pristine condition, a fact proven by the photos in the gallery below and we are convinced that many car enthusiasts would prefer this gem over a modern vehicle that would probably feature the same cost.
