Craigslist Find Of The Day: Badly Burned Customized 1966 Dodge Charger

You can find some pretty crazy stuff on Craigslist, some of which can be down right weird. Everything from free used bed sheets (we get chills thinking about it) to brand new Maseratis. You name it, you can find it on Craigslist. Which leads us to a strangely modified 1966 Dodge Charger we just came across for sale in the Detroit Metro area.

This very unique 1966 Charger seems to have mated with a 1960 Fury and then an E-body Challenger at some point giving it some serious fins out back and a couple very funky hood scoops; something we have never seen before. On the interior, we count a total of 19 gauges drilled into the dash. That might be a bit unnecessary to need that many. Unfortunately at some point, this Charger was involved in a house fire which has left it pretty charred. Here’s what the ad says:

“Selling for a Friend: 1966 Dodge Charger. The car has been customized by the previous owner. 1960 Plymouth Fury tail fins were grafted to the rear quarters. Custom side scoops. Custom hood. Custom dash. The car was in a garage fire. Hot shingles fell on the top surface of the car front to back but didn’t warp any sheet metal. Every panel was affected as far as the paint. No dents. The glass survived but the windshield cracked.

“The black 1967 interior was restored prior to the fire and survived. These pictures show the soot that did get inside. We will post more pictures after the interior is cleaned. 440 Big Block automatic. This was a running driving Atlanta Georgia car. Sonoramic cross ram induction with the correct carberators, 2903s both have BC1 date codes. At this time we don’t know what year the engine and transmission are. We will find out. Call Grant with any questions.”

For $9,500 USD, this odd and crispy Charger can be yours! We recommend some strong air fresheners.
