1966 saw the introduction of the 426 Street Hemi, a slightly more docile version of the mighty 426 race version from the previous several years. In this video, we take a look at an otherwise unassuming 1966 Dodge Coronet 440 that features a Hemi / 4-speed punch, and is still in its original condition. From the Brothers Collection.
The early third-generation Corvettes are among the favorites of the style, as they sport minimal trim and they pre-date the heavier 5-mph crash bumpers and performance robbing emissions equipment. The 1971 models did see a reduction in compression ratios as a first step down toward the lo-po mid '70s cars, but this 1971 LT1 still cranked out 330 HP and impressive torque in a fantastic-looking Corvette. It's from the Brothers Collection, and we enjoyed our time with it!
