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!

After spending most of its life as a clean daily driver, this awesome
Coronet was the perfect starting point for a professional rotisserie
restoration that mixed a killer big block engine with classic Mopar
attitude. The car's straight body, which includes solid-closing doors on
top of better-than-factory alignment, was massaged into spectacular
surfaces by Tom Argue Design in Clearwater, Florida. Once those planes were
completely clean and fully prepped, Dark Green basecoat was detailed with a
white R/T stripe and sealed under glossy clear. And today, this positively
evil Dodge rolls as one super slick road warrior that features a perfect
combination of no-nonsense looks and vicious street manners.
What do you do when you have a sweet Mopar muscle car that needs a heart
transplant? You call the fine folks at Chrysler and order something akin to
this Coronet's killer Hemi crate engine! Thanks to a 2008 rebuild that
guaranteed correct machining tolerances, this Dodge now moves to the tune
of 465 horsepower
and 485 lb./ft. of torque. At the top of the neo Elephant block, a painted
and decaled air cleaner forces wind into big Edelbrock carburetors that are
cinched to a reproduction intake. At the sides of that intake, cast iron
heads hang organisol-coated valve covers over stainless valves and aluminum
pistons. Between those pistons, a forged steel crank combines with a modern
hydraulic cam to rotate a traditional-looking distributor. That distributor
sequences spark through black Wire Technologies plug wires, which hang over
fully restored Exhaust manifolds. And
at the front of those manifolds, a big Chrysler radiator rides between a
Chrysler washer tank, low-mounted air conditioning and an onslaught of
That powerful Hemi engine sends thrust to a proven A727 Torqueflite that
twists torque through both a Hemi converter and shift kit. That 3-speed
hooks to a familiar Dana 60, which is fitted with a rugged Sure Grip
differential. That awesome drivetrain rides between a Mr. Norm's K-frame,
AFCO coil-overs, rear lowering blocks and rear air shocks. Turns come
courtesy of Mr. Norm's power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops are provided
by power-assisted Wilwood 6-piston calipers, which squeeze 13-inch drilled
and slotted rotors. Large-diameter Exhaust pipes employ an H-shaped crossover in
front of beefy Xlerator turbo Mufflers
and traditional resonators. And power flows to the pavement through
color-keyed Mr. Norm's wheels, which spin 245/40ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force
T/As in front of 295/35ZR19 BF Goodrich g-Force T/As.
Nothing says 60s Detroit muscle like this B-Body's simple Black interior.
There's a pliable bench and bucket combo that's ready for the nearest drive
in. Restored gauges and modern Vintage Air conditioning have been
incorporated in true factory fashion. There's a wood-trimmed console that
houses a small shifter for the 3-speed transmission. A correct Chrysler
Solid State radio, which remains seated in the aforementioned dash, is
dueled with a hidden Secret Audio system. And, in front of the driver, a
stylish, wood-rimmed steering wheel spins around a chrome Mopar horn

appearance that's fit to impress? Congratulations, you've found your next
classic! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more
