1965 Plymouth HEMI Lightweight

The Dodge & Plymouth A-990 cars were the end result of a change in drag rules mandated by the NHRA and the continuing special high performance program at Chrysler to keep pace with both the rules and the competition..... Following the end of the 1964 season NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) banned the use of aluminum and/or fiberglass body components on both stock and super stock cars. The older aluminum & fiberglass-bodied cars would still be eligible to run in stock classes if they had met the minimum production numbers. The A-990 Mopars would meet these new rules head on and the interior was also lightened as much as possible. The initial run of A-990's came out of the modification center weighing 500 pounds less than the standard super stock car of 1964 and 250 pounds less than the NHRA requirement. Now the factory had to add some weight back so they added a steel gas tank shield, a re-enforced roll bar and standard steel bumpers and deck lids...and the cars weighed in right on the money! These cars were so fast that these A-990's were virtually unbeatable for several years to come and for the first two years...1965 and 1966...they were the ONLY cars in the class at all..... ET's in the high 10 second range were commonplace with these cars.

426 Hemi in a '55 Chevy! Roadkill Episode 8
On this episode of Roadkill, HOT ROD's David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan hit the road on a quest to build a car they've both dreamed of for years: a '55 Chevy Bel Air sedan set up like a '60s Gasser and powered by a Mopar 426 Hemi. The guys drag out a '73 GMC Suburban that they'd never driven more than around the block (did you expect anything else?), then use it to pick up a bare '55 Chevy body in California before heading north for the 1,000-mile trip to Lincoln City, Oregon. That's the home of Jim Meyer Racing, the chassis builder that helps the guys turn the '55 into a wicked looking hot rod in a single day. There's no fail in this episode of Roadkill! Well, at least nothing terminal.
