Sitting here going stir crazy and looking through some old magazines. Are these cars worth more or less than their two door counterparts?

1966 and 1967 are a different breed when it comes to Hemi Cars. They are the Rodney Dangerfield of Hemis, They Get No Respect. Personally I love the shoe boxes and the less options the better. If I did not have what I have now I would buy a 66 low option four speed Hemi or a 1968 Hemi Road Runner. Prices are right on the 66s and some 67s.Now does rarity over take the Hemis in the same year. Some thing like you posted is at the top of shoe boxes because of the four doors and the color but that does not always mean people are looking for an old mans family Sedan. I like it but lots would not put their cash out on it. Rarity some times rules the price likely the four door will bring a bigger dollar. But if you look at 1971 E Bodies a 1971 Hemi Cuda value is greater than a 1971 Hemi Challenger if all is the same. They are basically the same Vehicle except for the two inches and panels. It is a Hype thing and the 1971 Cuda took off and has been on top for a long long time.

I like the 4 door cars for the novelty factor , but me personally would NOT pay more to own one ( I value them much less, same goes for the 2 door sedans as well )

But thats MY 2 cents

It comes down to whether one prefers style or rarity, right ? It can be argued either way.
I think the rarity of the 4-door Gen 2 Hemi cars is what has supported their value in years past, but they also play to a small audience.
I seem to recall around 130K for one some years back, about double what 2-doors were, comparing mint #s cars.
Helluva sleeper, if it had no Hemi badges.
I'd think if you took a poll, 2-doors would be much preferable to 4-doors.
But there's always That Guy...

What does a guy do with all of those extra doors? I guess you could weld the rear doors shut and pretend they were never there.

The brown four door from Canada use to have a big hood scoop on it. It was run hard by many an owner, except Rick. I liked it and wish I had of known a few times if was coming up for sale but it has a good home now. There were many 1966 two door Hemi cars built so numbers bring down price a little compared to the few four door made.

The gold one is gorgeous. I saw it at Mike's place a few years ago.

I guess the four door is Gold not Brown. It was around me on the street for years and years. I could tell you about one story in an underground parking garage but that is not fare to this car or Mike. The beauty of this car has been brought back to it, never really liked the scoop that was on it but the times were very different back in the 80s.

I'd prefer one of the original 4-door Hemi cars over any Hemi 2-door myself, convertible or not.

Is this the car in MN?

A guy I know has one, but don't remember the color. He keeps a low profile but isn't a "get off my lawn"-kind of guy.

You won't hurt my feelings sharing a story like that. I still have the cheesy JC Whitney hood scoop.
