RK Motors Charlotte is unquestionably the home of the A12; you know, those
killer Super Bees and Road Runners with lift-off hoods, 440 Six Pack
engines, and four manual gears in the transmission. We've sold more than
just about anyone else, and our staff is comprised of experts who know
these cars inside and out and can tell from 20 feet away whether they're
correct. We've restored the two most valuable A12s in existence, the first
one off the assembly line and the famous Project Six Pack racer.
We're not alone in our appreciation of these amazing machines, either, and
nobody here at RK Motors Charlotte was surprised when the market for these
cars took a big jump skyward. Recent auction results show that even
non-numbers-matching A12s are red hot, with more than a few changing hands
for six-figure price tags. Even Sports Car Market magazine noted that at
$120,000, a non-numbers-matching car was priced "market correct." Now take
a moment to consider what a documented, 4-speed A12 with its original,
numbers-matching engine in a one-of-one color combination might be worth
Well, actually, you don't have to imagine it. RK Motors Charlotte is proud
to present this totally unique, correct, matching-numbers A12 restored by
our own craftsmen and ready to start collecting trophies at the very
highest levels. Seriously, have you ever seen an A12 with a white vinyl
top? I'm guessing the answer is, "No," because this A12 is a documented one
of one! And yes, we have a Chrysler Corporation Broadcast Sheet on the car
to back up its unusual configuration, as well as the original Lynch Road
fender tag that is still on the car.
Ironically, while these cars were originally cheap and dirty racers for
guys with only 3 or 4 nickels to rub together, this one has had a fortune
invested in it to make it one of the nicest A12s on Earth. Panel gaps are
excellent all around, and even the lift-off hood fits better than they did
when they were new. We had this car parked next to the all-original
survivor A12 on the floor, and the difference between this paint and the
vintage 1969 stuff is mind-blowing. Don't get me wrong, original is cool,
but anyone who sees this car in person will understand that there's just
nothing like immaculate, deep, color-sanded and buffed urethane to make a
car look like a million bucks.
OK, so it looks nice. How does it run? Well, have a look under the hood.
That's the original, matching-numbers 440HP big block, fully detailed and
covered in matching Hemi Orange paint. Up top, there's a correct Edelbrock
Six Pack intake with three 2-barrel carburetors complete with the proper
choke and fast idle solenoid assemblies, all fed by that giant oval air
cleaner that inhales deeply through the scoop on the lift-off hood. The
battery's a group 25 reproduction item with the correct red caps, and note
that the alternator pulley is the correct 2-belt piece, even though these
cars never used the second groove. New cables, the correct PCV valve and a
rebuilt master cylinder add to the look, and it was assembled and painted
just the way the factory would do it, overspray and all.
Underneath you'll find some of the finest metalwork we've ever seen on a
car. Since this is an A12, after all, there's also a heavy duty 4-speed
manual transmission feeding a stout Dana 60 out back with 4.10 gears and a
Sure Grip limited slip unit. There's a new dual Exhaust system with all the correct hangers and
polished tips, rebuilt stock suspension, and fresh brakes all around.
Wheels are correctly stamped A12 steel units finished in basic black
wearing Goodyear Polyglas redlines as original.
A vast majority of these cars had black interiors, so finding one spec'd
with an original white interior is a very pleasant surprise. The black
carpets and dashboard keep it from being overwhelming, and all the soft
parts are new, of course. Rebuilt gauges, including the Tic-Toc-Tach, live
under a fresh dash pad, and tie in nicely with the restored steering wheel.
The white seats feature new foam over the original frames, covered with
exact reproduction seat covers that fit snugly and without the wrinkles you
see on lesser restorations.
Those of you who have admired some of RK Motors other restorations, well,
here's your chance to own an incredibly rare A12 that was restored by the
nation's foremost A12 authority. You'll blow people away at shows with the
unusual color combination, and I can almost guarantee nobody has ever seen
one like this before. The market is definitely on the move, and you can own
this correct, freshly restored A12 with its original, numbers-matching
engine for about what the other guys are paying for also-rans. Visit our
website at http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com now before someone else recognizes
that this is a rare opportunity!
1967 Dodge Coronet R/T 440 V8 Four-Speed Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this freshly restored 1967 Dodge Coronet RT.
This is a true RT, that is powered by it's original, numbers matching, 440
Cubic Inch 375 HP V8. All that power is being sent through a four-speed
manual, back to a Dana 60 rear. This car has only covered 6,xxx miles since
the restoration and it shows. The paint is slick, the interior looks like
new, and the engine compartment is nicely detailed. This car is ready to
go. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for taking a look!

1967 Dodge Coronet RT
Here's a REALLY clean '67 RT! It's a factory 440, a factory R/T, that's the
factory color! It also has a 727 Torqueflite automatic transmission, power
steering, power brakes, dual Exhaust
with chrome tips, and an 8 3/4 rear end! Inside, it has a very clean deluxe
interior package with bucket seats, a center console, courtesy lighting,
R/T floor mats, 2 speed electric wipers, and an unmolested dashboard. It
sits on a set of 14 inch Magnum 500 wheels with 225/70/14 Cooper Cobra
Radial GT tires, has very nice glass and chrome, outstanding paint, and it
runs and drives excellent. This R/T is a VERY nice cruising car!
Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge
Everything changes; that includes the '60's and very early 70's muscle-car
era during which Norman Kraus, aka "Mr. Norm", rocketed to fame on the
basis of his car dealer, Grand Spaulding Dodge, which was the first to put
a 383, 440 and 426 Hemi V-8's into the boxy Dodge Dart and created a
performance legend in the process.
Yes, he's still alive; yes, he's still designing cars. If you saw his 600
hp Super Challenger at the L.A. or Chicago Auto Shows or at this year's
SEMA show, you know he's still got the touch.
