Hey, what's this car worth if someone wanted to throw in a big block/auto and just drive as is after a little clean-up in the interior (seat covers/carpet)? I'm guessing $2,000 to $2,500

Looks like the driveshaft came from the titanic. Interior blows it for me....I'd say 2k to someone who has a parts stash laying around. I always liked the interior design on those and the cool dash lighting.

There was a guy here in west Texas that had a 66 Charger 383 4 speed and was just missing the engine..it was complete and rust free. He tried for years to sell it for 3000. No sale.

25 yrs ago there was a guy out this way (East TX if you will) that had a '66/'67 Charger sitting in his driveway rotting. Car was complete, very little rust, big block, auto, white with red gut. Car was in plain sight, EVERYONE could see it. Guy got tired of people asking him about the car and felled a tree onto it, crushing it. Once it was crushed, then he called a JY to haul it away. I had seen the tree on the car, (clearly it had been cut) but thought it was an accident. By chance, I found the car in a local JY not long after, and that JY gave me the story. According to them, the guy almost didn't let the JY take it when he found out they didn't have a crusher on site to finish the car off but the town was on him to remove the damaged car.

If the story the JY gave me is true, there HAD to be a backstory to the car as to why the guy was so adamant about not wanting anyone else to own the car.

Whatever the reason, its lost in time now. 25 yrs later, not only is the car gone, but so is the house it was sitting at and the JY it ended up at. eyes

(yeah, I know this has nothing to do with pricing, my apologies. It just sparked a memory. blush )

that car is a mess. They are possibly the hardest Mopars to restore. Everything is expensive. In it's current condition, I'd buy it for $750 and use it in a Lemons race.

I agree

Would look decent as a garden decoration.

Funny thing (or not funny thing) is that if you think about it that poor body style is probably the only 2 door 60s or 70s Mopar that hasn't gone up in value...

the 66 & 67 chargers are, or seem to be, a love 'em or hate 'em deal like the 64 - 66 baracudas. those would be the other 2 doors that don't appear to be increasing in value much.

Biggest problem the '66-'67 Chargers have is the '68-'70 Chargers.
Likewise the 1st-gen Barracuda vs the '67-'69s, and the E-bodies are a whole 'nother thing entirely.
To my eye though, all a 1st-gen Barracuda needs is more wheel & tire, which greatly improves their proportions.
There's something about the 1st-gen Charger's roofline and quarter glass that just looks awkward to me.
Really cool interiors, though...

I don't mind them, but not sure I'd run right out and buy one either.

There is a gold one with a black vinyl top running around here that is pretty sharp.

due to being difficult to restore it is worth it to spent more in the beginning and buy the nicest early Charger you can

One could apply that very same rule to any car purchase one is contemplating making.

BUT, some simply cant . So they buy projects. In hopes to make it there own over time. Even at the risk of being in it upside down. That's just part of the game.

Unfortunately the 1st gen Chargers simply do not bring upper end money , regardless of power train.


There was a red with red interior car in southern CA advertised a while back for upper teens I personally thought was a pretty decent buy . Car looked amazing in pictures .
I cant remember what power train it had

Very hard to sell, I have first hand knowledge. I kept dropping the price, finally ended up trading it.

I have a 66 as well, not missing any parts and its one of those cars ya just dont know what to do with. Anyone who has had one might agree its a unique fun car to drive.

Just out of pure luck I was looking at a vid last night and go figure this guys got a cammed out 66-77 in Hemi Orange, for some reason at least to me it wears the color better then some of the older mopars with that repaint.

Yes this is the right vid its just mixed in along with a nice 69 charger as well.
