What a real shame this is, the Biscayne was the owners first car and the condition showed the amount of work he’d had lovingly put into the car. Not only was the Hellcat driver drunk, but I’m pretty sure it will be the tip of the iceberg in terms of too much car and not enough driving ability around the latest generation of muscle cars…

Got to feel bad for the owner of the Biscayne, as you can imagine the insurance probably won’t pay out.

On the upside the Hellcat may be crushed!

Poly Head: 1956 Dodge Coronet Lancer

Poly Head: 1956 Dodge Coronet Lancer.

 

In the 1950′s Dodge was busy experimenting with engine and head designs. They produced a number of interesting new designs, but few went on to be used and even fewer lasted the test of time. One of the better designs they came out with was the Poly head V8, but it didn’t go on to see the success that the Hemi did. This 1956 Dodge Coronet Lancer is powered by one of these Poly V8s and is a solid driver. Take a look at it here on eBay, were bidding is still low.

“Most documented” Hemi Charger heads to auction | Hemmings Blog: Classic and collectible cars and parts

Five years ago, we asked on the cover of Hemmings Muscle Machines whether this 1970 Dodge Charger was the world’s most documented Hemi car. It’s no idle question, either: Documentation can make or break a car on the marketplace, and the value of this particular Charger’s documentation will soon be revealed when the car goes up for auction at Mecum’s Indy event.

To begin with, Dodge didn’t build all that many Hemi-powered four-speed Chargers in 1970: 56 total, and only 10 in R/T trim with the SE package. After decoding its broadcast sheet and fender tag, owner Steven Segal figured he knew as much as there was to know about the Charger when he bought it from ibaey role in discovering the rest of its backstory. Segal restored the Charger with a non-numbers-matching but era-correct Hemi to replace the original engine, long since scattered in a street race by the original owner. By coincidence, a subsequent magazine feature on the Charger landed in the lap of the man cleaning out old sales files at Suburban Dodge in Metuchen, New Jersey, where its original owner bought the Charger. A muscle car enthusiast, he found the car’s file, saved it from disposal, and sent it on to Segal, who found within it the car’s original dealer order form, Chrysler invoice, notes from the negotiating process, delivery paperwork, and dealer prep work order.

 

Segal didn’t keep the car babied, either. At the time we photographed it, we took it out for a spin and got to hear the Hemi clear its throat through those over-the-counter headers, still with the car. Sometime later, Segal has located and installed the Cragar mags and Parnelli Jones tires that the original owner put on the car, giving it an authentic Day Two vibe.

 

Since our article appeared, we’ve yet to hear of any Hemi car with more documentation than Segal’s Charger.

 

Mecum’s Original Spring Classic Auction in Indianapolis will take place May 14-19 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. For more information, visit Mecum.com.
